***That it makes Tony's usual armor like an extension of himself. It it isnt like armor anymore but as if it is a part of him. To get into the Hulk Buster armor would be sort of like it was before extremis. It would be slower on account that it doesn't react to his mental/physical commands like his reg armor would case in point. If you are fast athletic person and then one day you have to put on a fat suit...you just aren't going to be as fast as you were without the suit.


That is how I thought it worked anyway.

I'm not a guru on extremis but that was my thinking more or less too...
But i have to add - The thing to bear in mind with speciality suits is that they are speciality for a reason, he uses them for special purposes hence they tend to be very strong in specific areas and utterly lacking in others!
As an example - (correct my memory if wrong guys >:-| )in the first Michilinie/layton run we were introduced to the stealth armour which was built for espionage and packed with cloaking gear, the offset was that it was badly lacking in weaponry which cost him bigtime in that mission.
These armours are not a replacement for his regular suit, they are purpose built for a specific job and with this Hulkbuster suit he very likely sacrificed much of the regular suits ability in favor of durability and power, there's no way something that clumsy and unwieldy can be considered 'Fast' when as noted IM was able to see the Hulk leaping at him but unable to dodge quick enough - even an extremis luddite like me knows current IM is quite fast enough to dodge with that amount of warning....
