> Theres no reason the same connection could not be extended to the Hulkbuster suit to enable it to respond just as fast. Hell I thought Extremis Iron Man could coopt and control any electrical device - it makes sense that the ease and speed of interface would be at least as good in anything that he actually built to be controlled by himself. Whats to slow him down - the extra few inches/feet for the signal to travel from Tony's brain to the CPU/limbs of the suit? Insignificant.

I agree that Tony should be able to make the same connection. I think the argument hear is whether or not the physical armors are the same speed. It seems that the Hulkbuster armor is not as fast as the current standard suit.

Even if it was not as fast, judging by the example I gave before of the Hulk Buster Argonaut, Tony is quite capable of building large bulky suits that come damn close to matching Extremis. I see no reason to believe that if the even bigger Argonaut HB was fast enough to hit Extremis IM, the HB Tony wore couldn't be as fast.

But the thing is... even we want to say for argument that the HB was only slightly slower than Extremis, did it not make sense for Tony to sacrifice a small bit of speed in order to get the extra strength and protection that HB gave him. Because whoever believes that the Extemis armor was fast enough to dance around the Hulk picking his spots while remaining untouchable obviously hasn't seen Hulk catching missiles, swatting tank shells and swatting aside Quick Silver.
