You're dealing with a character that created the most sophisticated weapon in human history from missile parts while working with a broken heart in a cave for 3 months. Is it really that unreasonable to assume that this character created a suit that could do that kind of stuff?
Sure Tony Stark is a genius - but there's gotta be a limit somewhere. Faceplates with enough rocket power to travel over 1000 mph to trek the 800+ miles in mere minutes should be one of those limits.
You make it sound like, just because he's Tony Stark, it's okay if he builds something nonsensical. In Iron Man 4, Tony builds a echtoreimager so that he can play ball with his Dad. In Iron Man 5, Tony builds a machine that turns the moon into a Burger King. But it's all okay because he once was in cave where he built a quisinart using only stone knives and bear claws. I don't think so.
There has to be limits. One of my favorite bits in Iron Man 1 and subsequently IM2 with the suitcase; was how much time and effort it took to put the suit on. Now he only has to think the armor on and there it is. Boring
. Heck, as it is, Stark never even has to wear the armor again as he has perfect remote control (and the Jarvis AI is even better at it than Stark is).
I liked the movie - but if something bugs me in a movie, it suppose it could be "fan nitpickery" (or it could be silliness by the filmmakers)(I side with the latter
