New fan artwork for Avengers 4 imagines Pepper Potts teaming up with Iron Man in her Rescue Armor. Pepper, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, has appeared in six of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies so far. While she began as Stark's personal assistant, Potts grew to become a much more important character as the films went on.
Potts first suited up in the Iron Man armor in Iron Man 3, but it appears that she will get her very own suit in the next Avengers film. Rumors of Potts suiting up have been floating around for quite some time, but started to generate more steam when images of new Avengers toy designs showed a sketch of Iron Man next to a purple and white suit. The suit appeared to closely resemble the Rescue Armor from the Iron Man: Armored Adventures animated series. Then, the Rescue Armor seemed to be confirmed last week when a picture of Paltrow in a purple Iron Man suit surfaced online. The Rescue Armor has seemingly been confirmed for Avengers 4, which have given graphic designers inspiration to create some stunning artwork.
Created by digital artist ultraraw26, the artwork shows Stark and Potts' Rescue suited up and dodging incoming missiles. The artist appropriately titled his artwork "Revenge of Starks", which is likely due to the devastation Thanos caused in Avengers: Infinity War. The Rescue Armor is heavily based on the toy designs and of course the image of Paltrow that was posted last week. The artist's full artwork can be seen below.
While Pepper may finally be getting her own suit in Avengers 4, it looks like the other superheroes will also be donning new costumes. Back in June, possible Avengers 4 artwork appeared online, which revealed the team in redesigned costumes and even had Hulk in a suit. These costumes also seemed to support the claim that Avengers 4 would involve time travel via the Quantum Realm. New white and black Avengers suits have also previously been revealed in toy box artwork.
Even though Stark would surely be hesitant to let Potts suit up and get involved in a lethal battle against Thanos, he may not have a choice. With Thanos killing over 10 superheroes in Infinity War, the team is going to need all the help they can get. Having Potts finally suit up as Rescue will also be a plus for toy sales, since many people will likely be inclined to add new action figure of Potts in the Rescue Armor to their collection. The inclusion of her suit has all but been confirmed for Avengers 4, but, hopefully, the final design will look half as good as this artwork does.
