So, let's drop in on superherodom's kookiest kouple to see what just rolled off the drawing board:
So. Reed Richards has invented...the telephone. And he's made it bigger and bulkier. Granted, it's a visiphone...but with no visible screen.
And he's using it to contact a furniture store. "You know, Reed, we have a regular telephone.." "Quiet, you!"
Ah well. Let the man invent his little rubbery heart out, won't you? After all, it's not rocket science.
Whoops. Never mind.
