Pepper also utilized the Rescue (Mark 1616) armor, which contained many of the features found in the Iron Man armors, including a personal electromagnetic force field for defense. The suit increases Pepper’s strength, enabling her to lift 75 tons. Although the suit is powered by repulsor technology, its repulsor rays are designed to deflect oncoming projectiles and have no other offensive weapons like those in found in typical Iron Man armors. Repulsors in the Mark 1616 are used for flight stabilization and increasing the size of the armor’s electromagnetic fields. The armor can hover in place using a localized gravity field or fly at Mach 2, and it contains an entertainment library, including a music playlist. The armor’s life support units include an hour of oxygen, as well as shock absorbers and coolants. The armor contains a subspace/ satellite radio communications array which receives radio and video signals; it can also project data in a holographic display. Aboard the armor is the artificial intelligence JARVIS, which can access records on Stark’s technology. JARVIS serves as an interface, aiding Pepper in the armor’s operation through the computer LED displays and audio communication. When the armor is unoccupied, JARVIS can manipulate the suit.

Virginia "Pepper" Potts was a member of the secretarial pool at Stark Industries during the days when the company was run by Howard Stark.
