I'm sick of seeing the Cool Billionaire Inventor character. Billionaires aren't cool; they're universally out-of-touch, self-absorbed, and profoundly unimaginative. Show me Tony Stark inventing something that already existed; except it has app integration, it's too expensive to benefit normal people, and five immigrant workers died in its construction.

Reed Richards has the brilliant idea of some sort of urban transport where multiple people can ride to the same destination together, saving money and fuel. Brilliant!

@nosimpleway Yes! I feel like Bruce Wayne is off to a good start by having Literally Just A Car except it doesn't have to obey traffic laws and only he can drive it.

@teg
Does this also apply to e.g. T'Challa and Namor, who are utterly loaded but also depicted as being largely responsible leaders of their respective nations?
