Fandom

This article or section needs expansion.

history of the pairing/more tropes and fanon info/etc - there is only a bare minimal of information right now

Tony/Pepper is one of the more popular het pairings in Iron Man and the Avengers fandom, particularly that part of the fandom concerned with the movie-verse.

Tony/Pepper fans were angry about "break up" of Tony and Pepper faced off-screen where is stated in Captain America: Civil War[2]. Despite the fact this often appeared in fandom due to Steve/Tony fics often breaking up the pairing, many feel that the pairing break up came out of nowhere and is just another way to get rid of another female character. Some fans took Steve Rogers question about Pepper being pregnant and ran with that instead. The first draft of CACW actually had Pepper pregnant but was scrapped because Gwyneth Paltrow's contract renegotiation[3].

Two of the most well-known Pepper/Tony fans are the actors that portray them: Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr.[4].

Common Tropes and Fanon

  • Break-up fics are extremely common, and the number of fics tagged with the Tony/Pepper tag is deceptive, as its most common use is as a background/past relationship to make room for (usually) a slash pairing like Steve/Tony.
  • Pepper/Tony as a background pairing are also extremely common
