Taking control of Iron Man's armor

Created to serve as Stark's newest A.I. system soon after J.A.R.V.I.S. went rogue.[1] This new A.I. was molded and named after Tony Stark's friend and CEO of Resilient, Pepper Potts, in order to remind him of Earth during his trip in space.[2]

Among its capabilities, P.E.P.P.E.R. can take control of Iron Man's armor when needed.[3]

Once Stark returned Earth, he wanted to give P.E.P.P.E.R. a new purpose, and uploaded her into the core of Troy, in order to run the new city he was building, along with a new name: H.E.L.E.N..[4]

  • First named "P.E.P.P.E.R." in Iron Man #5.
  • Although H.E.L.E.N. is agender, Stark programmed it to consider itself a female.
  • Her second name is an allusion to Helen of Troy of Greek mythology.
