MCU Rescue vs MCU Iron Monger, MCU War Machine, and MCU Whiplash.
Pepper gets a week of prep. Team also gets a week.
Battle takes place where Iron Man fought Iron Monger at the end of the first film.
We have to take two things into consideration:
- MCU Rescue was made in 2023. Which means that least the tech in the suit is probably similar to the nano-tech that Iron Man has. She uses detachable parts of her suit to amp attacks. This alone can put her above the older suits in previous movies.
- She has ONE really good feat. Shortly, after all the female members gather, a Leviathan waves comes for the team. She seems to charge a casual, two-hand repulse beam and ONE SHOTS on the Leviathans. Similar to how Thor one shotted one of them in the first Avengers movie (when he shoots lightning from the tower).
@nwgzsjuwhm96y2: we’ve got to a point in comic book movies where flying through buildings isn’t really a big deal though. Any mid-tier character shouldn’t really have much trouble with them. And didn’t Iron Man blow up the Leviathan that Hulk one shotted?
@firstfirmament: Common misconception, Pepper knows a not irrelevant amount of information about Tony's suits since Ironman 1 (Was his assistant duh and helped him with Arc Reactor once) and in Ironman 3 she actually uses one of his suits and even knows more about them than before (Being IRONMAN'S WIFE).
There's almost a decade since the start of the films to End Game for her to have learned how to effectively use the suits not including any A.I that may have been present in the suit, and so her lack of experience is pretty much a non factor considering she was probably one of the strongest female hero's in the battle and casually fodderized everyone except Thanos.
@ready_4_madness: Iron Man blew up the Leviathan's exposed skin. He couldn't penetrate it's armor by himself though. Even when he himself ends up blowing a Leviathan to pieces (again) laster in the movie it's due to him destroying it from the inside.
@noone1996: I think "hurt" is giving all 3 of them too much credit. But that wouldn't really be a Rescue feat as Hope and Shuri fired at the same time and hit him at the same time as Rescue did. So I'm not sure you can really call that a feat for any of them individually.
@noone1996: Pepper's best solo feat is destroying a Necrocraft. Thanos has tanked much better attacks.
I mean what they did isn't even impressive. They fire and he immediately is able to stop Carol from reaching the van. And I don't take a little grunt seriously since the man grunts when he himself punches people. It's cool they knocked him back but that's all they did.
@darthvaderrocks: Thanos does not always grunt in pain when he's hit and Pepper's best feat was actually wrecking a Leviathan. But hey man, if you think that Shuri's blasts (which were casually deflected by Corvus) and Hope's blasts (which were mainly used for KO'ing humans) are high enough to also make Thanos grunt in pain, then I guess we can agree to disagree. Either that or you can show me clips of practically anybody doing it. Off the top of my head, a weakened Thor at the beginning of Infinity War couldn't hurt him with a piece of metal that he hit Thanos in the head with, Spider-Man could not get him to grunt, Iron Man's explosions didn't make him grunt, Starlord's blasts were no-sold, Dr. Strange's energy sword was caught and no-sold, Bucky's bullets were no-sold, etc. Also, I know you probably think I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but the way he grunts in pain seems louder and longer than usual.
