If they can keep his head protected while its fully exposed, then they have supernatural powers.

But seriously, if he can fight superman in them, then yeah probably.

Depends what you mean with more powerful.

In terms of physicals (not counting speed): Yes

Versatility and energy attacks/missiles, etc: No

@thor_parker82: I agree, however I would say Lex suits are physically superior (at least strength, not sure durability).

Superman slapped Lex when Lex and his suit were taken over iirc. But he'd do the same to Tony tbh

I'd say about as good as the earlier, bulkier Iron Man suits.

You can't scale to Superman because typically when Lex is fighting Supes, he's using Kryptonite. Lex's Superman armor (second pic) isn't his own creation from what I remember, so it doesn't count.

Only thing I can imagine that gives Lex a step up is the fact that his head is protected when it's exposed

This is pretty much factual

Lex's suit is good for only one thing, to fight a Kryptonian, nothing else

I do think Lex is smarter though

They are, however I would say Durability goes to Iron Man. Iron Man have no suit that can contend with Lex in strength that he made himself.

@kgb725: Scans that Tonys god killer can withstand the attacks of an all out Superman level character?

I’d say about on par. They both have a lot of different suits that they build for different purposes so it’s hard to directly compare. Tony can probably build a Superman buster that would perform as well against Clark as Lex does.

Naa. Lex’s Suit is specifically made to counter Superman, Iron Man’s suit is more versatile.

Iron Man has also made a suit with his face apparently completely exposed, yet protected by graphene, which Tony mentioned is stronger than most steels on the planet.

I genuinely doubt that, pretty sure that's not the case.

What makes you think that though ? Interested to hear your opinion.

Tony has carried cargo ships and nuclear reactors on his shoulders, lifted part of a city, held the helicarrier on his shoulders again, and his suit during the superior era stomped and ripped to shreds the very same Hulkbuster suit that gave World War Hulk a good fight, see for yourself.

Does Lex have something that compares ?
