Yeah but that's a post-set explanation.
I'm pointing out how there's a hole in that idea as an EXPLANATION.
The set comes first, remember?
And how would he still have the powers if he had to switch out the two armours?
And why didn't we ever see him switch out the armours in the comics?
Why wasn't it mentioned he switched armours?
Why does biosector01 only say he has the golden armour?
Why are there this many questions?
Maybe because the adaptive armour was SUPPOSED to not be an issue and then it was haphazardly brought back in later.
