Subj: Dude I said "computerized mechanical equipment"

Reply Subj: No. Controlling electronics is unrelated to Iron Man's reaction time.

> > ***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.

> Actually the extremis is supposed enhance Stark’s control over any computerized mechanical equipment. So by Tony getting into his own Stark manufactured armor, it shouldn’t theoretically dampen the effects he has over his Hulkbuster armor. It gives him a direct link to it making him almost one with it even though it’s a shell over an shell. As far as how powerful extremis is, look at how easy he took over the satellites in WWH.

Stark's control over electronics (and by the way, it's not everything mechanical--it's only electronic devices that can send or receive digital signals. He can't control a lawn mower, for example) is separate and unrelated to his superhuman reflexes. The reason why he has superhuman reaction time is that the undersheath to the Extremis armor (which serves as the armor's control interface) is bonded to Stark's brain. As such, the Extremis armor reacts with the speed of thought. Stark THINKS about moving, and the suit does. In contrast, his regular suits of armor were limited by the reaction time of Stark's body.

This was all explained during the "Extremis" storyline by Warren Ellis.

I never said he was the lawnmower man \:\-\) . O.K. I not the most adept at IM knowledge but I was under the imppression that it was the nanotechnology in Tony's highly evolved skin, which is linked to his nervous system which gives him the ability to send his thoughts thus controling computerized mechanical equipment.
