One of my friends challenged me that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy my favourite superhero movie if it was all-women. Sorry, dude, I think I will. Here’s my AU where they’re all women.
Antonia Stark was a genius, billionaire, paparazzi-darling, and philanthropist.Her life was a machine that ran on constant booze, brilliance, and bitterness of the past. When Toni and her best friend and military liaison Jamie Rhodes travel to the Kunar region for a weapons presentation, Toni is abducted by a terrorist ring. Her eyes are opened to the other side of her brilliance, the horrors of her creations in the wrong hands. After a blazing break-out from captivity, Toni builds herself the ultimate weapon, one that she plans to use to protect and not destroy - the Iron Woman suit. The constant anxiety of watching Toni endanger herself takes a toll on her secretary Pepper Potts and affects her friendship with Rhodes, but there is one person who takes advantage of it. Obdulia Stane, Toni’s godmother and guardian, locks her out of the company citing trauma and Toni enlists Pepper’s help to uncover Obie’s truth. Things get intense when Obie tries to kill Toni and reveals that she was the one who arranged for the abduction. In a final showdown, will Iron Woman be able to be her own hero? What new world is Tony Stark entering and how will this change her life? Watch a hero climb to her potential in the beginning of a saga that will define the future. Iron Woman - the golden-hearted guardian is here.
