Subj: Agreed. If it were as good as they say, he'd wear only this suit.

There is no evidence whatsoever that that suit was fast in any sense of the word, absolutely none. It's just the wishful thinking of Hulkboosters, but just willing it to be that fast won't change any facts....

Do you not think that if that suit was as fast & mobile as you desperatly want it to be that Stark would be using it a lot more often? Would his standard armour not be a variation of that suit?
It was built for a very specific job, it is no competition or superior to his standard duds or he'd be wearing it as Standard would he not?

Boiling the argument down - the slimline Standard Armour weights about 10 kilos say, the Buster contraption weights somthing like half a tonne or more! Which is the more mobile and faster does common sense tell us?

You're arguing with only one leg and a bad limp with the other. But carry on It's amusing to watch \:\( |)

"LOL ...LMAO...*wink*... Guffaw... *sigh*..." (etc etc...)

...Tony's not in the business of trying to get hurt. He stands to lose more than practically any other hero should he be captured, injured or killed as his business could collapse, his intelligence agency could collapse and even his country could collapse. That being said, Stark is going to wear his best all-around suit the VAST majority of the time. Since we know in future issues that he doesn't even bother wearing the HB suit to face Thor, it CAN'T be the best logical choice. We know the HB suit is stronger, and likely provides better protection than his standard suits. What would the smaller suit have that makes it the odds on choice for every other mission...

I wonder what that might be?


Wait, I'm still thinking.......

Oh yeah, it's been SHOWN SEVERAL TIMES to be FASTER, NIMBLER and have HYPER-REACTION capability. That must be it.

NO other armor has been SHOWN to possess these abilities. FACT.
