Avengers Basic Series RESCUE!

Avengers Endgame - Basic S02 Iron Man and Rescue 2-Pack - Hasbro 2019

I really thought Avengers: Endgame was a terrific movie. Despite my love for comics and superheros, I often shy away from film versions of the genre. Especially when something is pitched as a huge blockbuster with an expansive cast.  I still always see these movies of course, but my hopes are never very high. I much prefer smaller-scale films with detailed character development. But Avengers Endgame surprised me. It really look advantage of the groundwork laid by the 21 (!) previous MCU movies and told a compelling, cohesive, and exciting story. And it may seem silly, but one of my favorite take-aways was the long-awaited cinematic debut of Pepper Potts in her Rescue armor. She only had seconds of screentime, but it really made an impression on me. And it appears the merchandising community too notice too because there is a flood of Rescue product coming. My first purchase was a Funko Pop, but this basic figure it the one I was really looking forward to. Let's check her out below!


Rescue has a ball-jointed head, hinge-and-swivel shoulders and elbows, and t-crotch legs. There is no torso, wrist, knee, or ankle cuts at all. Plus her backpack is sculpted on with no moving parts.

Rescue's only accessory is a blue energy blast that anchors in the palm of her hand.

I didn't even watch the Iron Man: Armored Adventures animated series from 2009, but it's pretty clear that the MCU Rescue costume us inspired from this look.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her pack-mate, Iron Man.

And here are the MCU Basic Ladies all together. From Left to Right: Scarlet Witch, Shuri, Captain Marvel, Rescue, Black Widow, Gamora, and Captain Marvel (Binary).

And here she is with the 2016 Marvel Legends Rescue.
