>>104068853>That's why we're such successful inventors. We know what people will need before people even know they're gonna need it
The problem is that we've never actually seen Reed or Tony do this. Whenever they invent something, it was always something they needed right at that moment or Reed just sciensing for the sake of science, it was never "my future math tells me that people are going to need X in the future, better do that". Most of Reed and Tony's inventions aren't available to anyone else anyway. Reed in particular is fond of hoarding science and preventing the average men from gaining access to anything too advanced because "it's not natural" or "they're not ready".
Also, lol at Tony being OK with acting on his own predictions of the future, but God forbid if you act on some psychic Inhuman's intel.
