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.

My argument is that there is no physical/logical reason for it to be any slower. If it was depicted as slower than I think its just another case of "nobody writes IM like the Knaufs do" and Extremis would have been just as fast/slow in Pak's hands.

The converse is just as valid. there's no physical/logical reason for it be as quick. There's no evidence it possessed ANY similar speed to Tony's Extremis armor. It's larger than Tony's frame, so it's entirely likley that he's driving it like Ripley drove the forklift in Aliens, rather than wearing it like he does his typical armor. If he's wearing an armor underneath the exo-suit....how exactly is the HB suit directly connected to his central nervous system???? Hulk fans can't have it both ways. So many of you guys are saying Tony's wearing the E suit underneath. If he is...how could the HB possibly be as quick? There's NO direct connection to the undersheath.

I'm not saying that the HB suit is slow. Tony wouldn't hamper himself that way. But it's my argument that it can't be anywhere near as fast as his standard suit OR the Argonaut, which at least showed some speed. The next time the Hulkbuster armor shows speed will be the first time....
