Stark’s understanding gal pal, Rae, was introduced in IM #223, meeting Tony in a Rodeo Drive jewelry store. She was the owner of a ritzy salon/spa in Beverly Hills named Doos An’ Don’ts (located right next door to the jewelry store). Rae should be remembered for a few reasons, but perhaps most importantly for coifing Tony with the 1980’s perm that had more than just a touch of mullet.
Successful and wealthy, but not spoiled or possessive, Rae had an “open” relationship with Tony. (Much later, in #286, she began dating Rhodey—but only after deciding that she and Tony were just friends.) Rae was a polo-playing girl with fine tastes who showed that she actually cared about other people. To wit: After Tony’s shooting, she flew in the surgeon who saved his life. She was a great contrast to the other women in Tony’s life at the time: Kathy Dare and Brie Daniels. In fact, it was her steady support and friendship that helped the paralyzed Tony get back on his feet, so to speak. She treated him like a man, not some guy in a wheelchair.
Ever stylish and hip, she was also a patron of the trendy artist and Grey-Gargoyle-in-disguise Paul St. Pierre.
