Fans love Iron Man. And if the buzz on 'Iron Man 2' is any indication, fans can't wait for the debuts of new characters War Machine (Don Cheadle), the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and even the villainous Whiplash (Mickey Rourke). But no one seems to be all that excited for the return of Pepper Potts, played by Gwyneth Paltrow.

A little bit cruel? Possibly. Incredibly hilarious? Absolutely.
