Bambina 'Bambi' Teresa Bliss Arbogast (Marvel)

Search for 'Bambina 'Bambi' Teresa Bliss Arbogast (Marvel)' on Amazon

Bambina Teresa Bliss Arbogast debuted in issue #118 as Tony Stark's no-nonsense secretary/executive assistant, a trusty battle axe, and just about the only one who could handle being Tony Stark's personal assistant. More motherly than Pepper, this feisty matron kept Stark, Rhodey, and SE in line through all kinds of insanity.

As told in a back-up story in Iron Man Annual #11, Mrs. Arbogast got the job as Tony's personal assistant because while she waited for Stark to come in to interview her, Iron Man and Whirlwind busted in fighting. Despite the battle, Mrs. A. kept her cool and kept Stark's important papers, even his goldfish safe. Staying cool, she even answered the phone. Finally, she helped Iron Man knockout Whirlwind. She got the job because of Iron Man's recommendation.

Arbogast kept Stark's business and romantic affairs running on all cylinders, although she usually disapproved of Tony's bimbos. With all of Tony's cavorting and super-heroing, she had her hands full, but she managed. She kept the operations humming along, until Tony's drinking ruined the company. Soon after, she left (when Obidiah Stane took over Stark International). She was later kidnapped by Stane (taken from her Bay Ridge, NJ, neighborhood) for his ultimate revenge on Stark. In #222, she returned from a long trip throughout Africa to reign in Tony's new company as his Office Manager. (Later she would also serve a stint as the executive assistant to Heroes for Hire.)

Mrs. Arbogast didn't take flak from anybody--not Tony, not Rhodes, not Iron Man, not even the super-powered villains that occasionally busted in with or without appointments. In fact, she never seemed to have learned that Tony was Iron Man (while working for him anyway), and often found Iron Man to be rude and brusk. Although she eventually left Stark's employ, she remains a valued friend.

Mrs. A. is married to Norman. She also has a niece named Alison, who once filled-in for her at Stark's side.
