How many times to we have to go over this. An EMP doesn't work on tony stark,he'd reboot in a few seconds and then **** up batman.

Sorry for causing the general populous to **** red thumbs all over your comment. I assure you, that wasn't my intent.

It's not that he can reboot, it's the fact he'd have it shielded from such basic attacks to begin with.

You may be right, but Funnyjunk dictates you are wrong.

how it's an iron fag,

In Thor volume 3, Thor smashes the **** out of Ironman and to end the fight before he critically damages him he sends down an EMP that took out his whole system.

alright, so, i'm sure by this point you realise that you're wrong. an EMP would, in-fact, permanently damage the system.

an ultra-rich weapons expert would be literally retarded to not attempt to install some type of Faraday-field/cage within his electronically controlled metal suit.
this WOULD render him completely impervious to an EMP blast.

however batman is also considered a complete genius much like stark in the field of science and could (given time) come up with a unique EMP type device that would effect ironman.
batman isn't invincible nor super-powered and could be taken down, but; batman + preperation > everyone

"The direct effect of a large EMP is to induce high currents and voltages in the victim, damaging electrical equipment or disrupting its function."

Damaging. You can't reboot **** that doesn't work.

Im sure Tony would have a lining of Copper in his Iron suit to counteract the effects of an EMP. Copper deflects Gamma rays
User avatar #276 to #210 - scant (08/21/2013) [-]
Copper would have to be several inches thick to null gamma rays.

If Thor shooting lightning didn't hurt his suit I feel that an EMP might also fail.
User avatar #167 to #166 - scant (08/21/2013) [-]
Different things. Detonating an EMP is not the same as striking a point with lightning.
User avatar #170 to #167 - tanisrapedmygoat (08/21/2013) [-]
I completely agree and understand that. But I'm too lazy to do the research. Starks suit is powered by an arc reactor and I assume that may be able to handle an EMP. Although who the **** cares cause its a comic book.

Well gee, it's a good thing you don't actually care, otherwise this conversation might not have been totally pointless.
User avatar #173 to #172 - tanisrapedmygoat (08/21/2013) [-]
well im saying i enjoy the conversation but I'm not gonna get into an internet argument about fictional characters lol

I think he has prepared for that, considering he took a full blast from Thor's hammer in the avengers and wound up getting a power boost. I mean I would think he has the money and mind to make his suits totally emp proof, but I haven't read enough iron man comics to make a justified reply, but in a death battle where neither has had prep time and has their hero attire on, I would have to say Tony. But if each had time to prepare, that'd be a really tough call.

Dam that baby's face get me e regime isee it

its a ******* super suit, dont you think he would have Anti-EMP equipment of some sort, his entire armor relies on it, of course he does.
User avatar #32 to #9 - lyiat (08/20/2013) [-]
Except, EMP shielding is trivially easy and common in real ******* life. Do you honestly think genius-level intellect, engineer extraordinaire Tony Stark would honestly forget such a glaring goddamn weakness?
User avatar #19 to #9 - traelos (08/20/2013) [-]
Surge protectors.

If he can build a suit with ******* lasers in its hands he can build a suit with surge protectors.

Alternatively he could have a system where when an outer layer is hit by the EMP it immediately shuts off every function of the suit and then reboots it. EMPs don't work on equipment that's turned off.
#118 to #19 - femalebreasts (08/20/2013) [-]
EMP works on equipment that is turned off, since the electro-magnetic wave induces the current itself, and frying transistors.

The only problem (and reason Continuo is right) with your defense is that it's not a direct natural electricity. The arc reactor itself would not stop, and would deliver a continuous current after the fact. that aside, you can make currents immune to emps by triple-copper-coating the wire. in other words, the emp would travel through the first two coats and leave the third, actual coating in which electrical signals alone.

My father was an electrician in the navy.
User avatar #175 to #16 - scant (08/21/2013) [-]
But can you triple copper coat circuit boards, or just wires? An EMP would effect every kind of electronic hardware in his suit. Doesn't matter if the Arc reactor keeps running if there's a mass of fried circuitry it has to power.
User avatar #219 to #175 - lordgeneral (08/21/2013) [-]
There are surprisingly numerous ways to circumvent emps.

How many can fit inside a man-sized suit that's already packed with hardware?   
Not trying to call you out or anything. I'm just working under the assumption that any sort of EMP protection would need to be significant enough to null the blast while small enough to fit inside the suit on top of everything else.

again, you've first got to understand how emps work. most of them just short out the circuits.

The triple copper wiring and other variances work by taking the new electricity so it doesn't interfere with the actual circuitry. It's called a Faraday box. My guess is that the Iron Man suit would easily work as a Faraday box, being tungsten and gold.

I think the major issue would be his missiles exploding and such

Wait,are we talking about the films or the comics.
#11 to #10 - scant (08/20/2013) [-]
I don't read comics, nor do I consider myself a fan of the movies.
I'm just stating facts. And if you tell me he managed to invent some device that can effectively ignore/repel the effects of a blast electromagnetic radiation then I'm going to tell you that Iron man is ******* stupid because no one can do that.
User avatar #17 to #11 - continuo (08/20/2013) [-]
In the comics it states that his machinery is affected physically by the emps and You need to login to view this link also says that he does require a period of time when hit with an EMP.He has however managed to decrease the tim to under a period of 10 seconds to return to maximum possible functionality.There is also the factor that he has enough energy in the arc reactor to power new york for a long period and his suit is made of millions of nano-machines that each hold a high level of computing power.I have no idea on the science-y part of the comics and the details escape me.If its the films though then what you said would happen big time and stark would fall flat on his face and get raped by batman.

Honest question, is an EMP different than being struck by lightning?

I am of course thinking of the scene in The Avengers where Thor shoots lightning at Iron Man and Iron Man absorbed the energy into his suit.
User avatar #13 to #12 - scant (08/20/2013) [-]
Yes. A plane can withstand getting struck by lightning, as the current is redirected down conducting paths in the fuselage. It doesn't interfere with the electronics. But an EMP creates a burst of electromagnetic radiation, which will penetrate the fuselage and **** up the electronics inside the aircraft.
Similar **** going on with Iron Man's suit, I'd imagine.
#14 to #13 - Clonious (08/20/2013) [-]
Ah, that's understandable. Thank's for explaining that.
