Fictional character biographyEdit

Christine Everhart works for The Daily Bugle as an investigative reporter. As part of her job, she provides the Bugle with news coverage of Tony Stark's appearance before the senate.[3]

In other mediaEdit

The character of Christine Everhart was adapted for the 2008 film Iron Man, where she was portrayed by actress Leslie Bibb.[4] In the film, her employer is changed to the magazine Vanity Fair as the rights to the Bugle were tied to the Spider-Man films.[5] Bibb reprised the role for Iron Man 2.[6]

In Iron Man, she is seen conducting a critical interview with Tony Stark regarding the deaths that result from the weapons made by his company. Despite her judgmental tone when interviewing him, they sleep together, and the morning after, when she attempts to demean Stark's colleague, Pepper Potts, Potts returns the insult. Later in the film Everhart informs Stark that a shipment of his missiles was recently delivered to a terrorist group called the Ten Rings, whom Stark subsequently confronts as Iron Man. At the end of the film, she attends the press conference at which Stark publicly reveals that he is Iron Man.

In Iron Man 2, she is writing a page for Justin Hammer.

In early July 2015, Marvel began a viral marketing campaign for the Ant-Man film featuring Leslie Bibb, reprising her role as journalist Christine Everhart, reporting for a faux news program, WHIH Newsfront. In the program, Everhart discusses the fallout from the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Lang's imprisonment,[7][8] and events leading to Captain America: Civil War.[9]
