See, for the longest time I wanted these fights between Didact and either of these two characters, Either Ultron, another psychotic robotic villain, or Iron Man, a genius in a badass set of armor. Issue is, Didact Hax stomped back when they were 8A, and when he got upgraded to 7B, Ultron and Iron Man went to 7A, so fan-freaking-tastic.
Anyway, 7A+ Iron Man vs 7B Didact since Ultron stomps due to being a machine, speed is of course equal, both are Bloodlusted.

Didact's hax is far more effective against biological beings. So Iron Man wouild be a good Hax vs AP battle, with The Didact being blooslusted of course.
Also, Don't forget the Didact has a 5-C key now...
Now that he's bloodlusted, he'll spam his teleportation the same way Prometheans do whenever they see an attack coming. So The Didact could evade Tony's attacks and not get One-Shotted instantly. While also throwing Homing slipspace breaches that I'm not sure if Tony could counter.
That and the Composer....
It will absolutely transmute Tony into data, and it will rain down from the sky without warning. The AOE is far too large for Tony to escape.
Though Tony could still One-Shot if the Didact made a mistake.
Depending how this goes I may but him against Kessler or Cole :^)
Since both are bloodlusted, Iron Man is likely to start with spamming homing projectiles and repulsor beams, and Didact is likely to start spamming homing Slipspace portals. Since speed is equalized, I could see Iron-Man avoiding a few BFR’s, but Didact could also teleport away from Tony’s attacks, making sure he doesn’t die instantly.
Even if IM can avoid the slipstream portals, I’d argue that he eventually gets caught in the massive AoE blast of the Composer. Didact with high difficulty
The composer is a blast from the albeit little I've seen from Halo 4
Issue is, it's trying to affect someone that's covered in 7A+ armor
...Oh fuck it I'm already too far in
TBH I know I'm not allowed to vote, granted I have gotten a lot, and I mean ALOT more apathetic when it comes to people debating on their own thread, but legit I see this as inconclusive.
Assuming the composer can affect Tony through his vastly more durable armor, it goes down exactly as you said the fight would, only now the Armor has nobody in it and Didact has a new armor to work with.
If it doesn't affect Tony, this fight turns into a borderline stomp in his favor with Didact unknowingly fighting someone with a huge AoE that can one shot him and his only way of winning being Slipstream BFRs which he doesn't know.
Yeah, The Composer pretty much ignores durability. The only reason Master Chief survived it was by virture of a genetic mutation he received. Same with The Didact. Armor won't block it, unless it has been shown to block Transmutation attacks on the level of The Composer.
