Pepper I-don’t-know-anything Potts
lol clearly when you tell tony anything you’re actually telling tony-and-pepper the entity.
lbr there was an immediate PEPPER LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS SECRET TASK FORCE PEPPER
and Phil’s like “eh, we know Stark can’t tie the shoelaces on his own platform sneakers without you, it’s fine”
there was probably an entire subsection on Natasha’s report about it, lbr.
"It is absolutely certain that Stark will share every detail of this information, no matter how classified or minute, with Pepper Potts. This does not constitute a problem, as Potts is more qualified for any SHIELD work than Stark (see attached evaluation, where she scores above average marks in intelligence, trustworthiness, and quality of work product). Unfortunately any recruitment of Potts would be rejected, as her loyalty to Stark is unparalleled. Which, once again, makes her eminently qualified for recruitment. Recommend preemptively clearing Potts for any classified data we give Stark."
Additional handwritten sticky note attached to this page: “Phil: are we sure we’re not reopening the super soldier project? Just asking for a friend.”
I am entirely convinced that Pepper has a higher SHIELD clearance than Tony does. She knows Phil is alive and they exchange text messages during boring meetings,
