When Thanos snapped his fingers in Infinity War, billions of people vanished instantly. But, it did give Tony Stark a chance to finally retire and start a humble life with Pepper Potts. But, when it came to facing Thanos again, she did not hesitate in joining the battlefield in ‘Avengers: Endgame’. However, it somehow managed to anger a few fans. Here’s why!
Why are fans mad at Pepper?
In a recent Reddit post, there were some Marvel fans who had an issue with Pepper joining the final battle in Endgame. Their main concerns were that did Pepper arrange for a baby sitter for Morgan Stark as she left for the fight? Their problem was that why Pepper risk her life when Morgan was home alone, not knowing whether her father or mother would come back.
Now, some fans answered the first question that Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) must have looked after her. Happy wasn’t present at the Endgame battlefield. Moreover, he had served as a babysitter to Morgan before. However, the real question that arises from this situation is: Were the stakes high enough for Pepper to risk her life and try to save her husband, Tony Stark?
Did Pepper do the right thing by jumping into the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ final battle?
To put it simply, the stakes were high enough for Pepper Potts. You have to remember that this time, Thanos wanted to snap the entire universe into oblivion. He was not going to spare half of the population like last time (which was still quite barbaric). The final battle of Avengers: Endgame required everyone with any kind of power to fight against Thanos.
Moreover, both Pepper and Tony knew that Morgan would be fine regardless. If the two of them hadn’t survived the final Avengers: Endgame battle, Happy would have taken care of Morgan. Moreover, she would have all the wealth in the world to follow her dreams as she pleased. Yes, she would have missed her parents dearly, but Pepper just had to fight to give the universe, and her husband, a chance to live.
Moreover, Pepper had gone out of her way to save Tony Stark before Avengers: Endgame too. In Iron Man 2, Pepper reduced Tony from Ivan Vanko. And even when handling the Stark Industries, she saved Tony from bad PR as well. And Tony returned the favor sometimes as well. Therefore, risking everything to save Tony and the rest of the world at the risk of not seeing Morgan again was a price Pepper was willing to pay.
