This is from Amazing Spider-Man Presents: American Son #4 by Brian Reed and Philippe Briones.

Because the armor was made for him, Harry causes it to fall apart with a vocal command.

Gabriel is arrested.

Later, Norah sees Harry and asks him about the painkillers she saw, which were prescribed for him before he was shot. Harry admits to having a problem, but that the whole thing with Gabriel cleared his head and that he's going to rehab and getting to help. However, the next scene shows him taking the pills again.

Yup. Born of a mother the same age as Harry. F'ed up.

I kinda like how Norman still has his followers. I can't wait for his series.

followers or not, saluting him seems dangerous.

I know the cat is out of the bag but can't we just chemically (or hell physically I'm not particular) castrate Norman so we don't have to deal with any more of his spawn?

He just needs to work out his issues within someone who can out-think him or out-muscle him or out-inner issue him. Say Bruce Banner?

So Harry's battle with addiction has officially reached its "Shake It All About" phase after a regulated battle between "In" and "Out". Pretty soon he'll be the new Howard Hughes, I reckon.

The armour could be turned off with a word by the person he was fighting? That's...really bad design. It's not hard to put vocal recognition in.

I don't think the first fixes the issue - you're going to touch people you're fighting a lot, so that doesn't help...

The latter just moves the same issue to how Gabriel was able to hijack it in the first place.

More Gabriel was an idiot for using armour that the person he's fighting against used first and knows better.

Well, sure, there's that too, but, unless the armour was intended for both of them, I think my point still stands.

If it was intended for Harry and only Harry, the ability to control it by voice command even when not wearing it is reasonable, but it really should have been keyed to him (and Norman, given daddy's paranoid streak), meaning Gabriel shouldn't have been able to take it over in the first place.

Even if it was intended for both, the ability for Harry to override Gabriel from outside with a simple vocal command is a questionable design choice, at best. (Unless it's some sort of pseudo-Darwinian attempt to determine which son is the fittest. Which, granted, I wouldn't put past Norman.)

It really does seem unwise. In a universe full of skrulls and shapeshifters like Mystique and people who are capable of mimicking voices, allowing a powerful weapon to be taken apart with a vocal command just seems dumb.

Good to see that everything Spidey-related continues to be gross and offputting.
