Marvel fans on Twitter are remembering a sad but important detail from Avengers: Endgame involving Iron Man and his wife Pepper Potts.
One of the most devastating plot developments to come out of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame was seeing Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man pass away after defeating Thanos. Iron Man died a hero but it was devastating to see his funeral where almost every main Marvel hero was present.

The little detail in question is realizing that with Iron Man dead, Pepper Potts has to look at all the fan mail here deceased husband has received.
