When I was child I read a lot of comics books, tons of them. I started doing my first budget managment figuring out how many monthly series I was able to afford. At that time I was mostly a Marvel fanboy, following all those series about mutants, avengers, etc... One of my favourite one was Fantastic Four. I read and re-read those comics by John Byrne and Walt Simonson. My favourite between the Four was Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic. I love his scientific approach to live and when fighting against super-villains. At that time I could never even dream about Mr. Fantastic using one of projects I have been working on as one of his gadgets/inventions:
- "Come on!, Fer! this is a product placement issue."
- "Yeah, and superheroes don't exist."
