Which brain would you prefer? Bruce's knowledge of all the various sciences and learned martial arts or Reed Richards and his vast knowledge of well...everything practically. The only caveat is that you don't have Bruce's trained body, money, bat toys and as for Reed you don't have his powers, Sue's affection, etc
Personally, I would prefer Bruce's but in reality, either one would be leagues beyond pretty much every human on Earth, and I would probably end up being rich regardless. Inventing things like the fantasticar, batarangs, roofies (which would get me what I want from Sue anyway). And the floppy disk drive.
Bruce easily, with Bruce knowledge all it would take is determination to have the best of both worlds. With Bruce brain you can easily create a Batman like character all you need is determination. While Reed knowledge is impressive it's limited to science, tech and languages. It's not that I don't think someone can't be successful but to me I see a repeat of what Edison did to Testla.
I've always seen Reed as Nicholas Testla and Bruce as Albert Einstein. This is in the sense Reed is more imaginative and can create things beyond what currently know, but Bruce can take whatever science or tech is out there and move it forward to the next logical conclusion.
Exactly, which is why i choose Reed.
Batman has a billion dollar tech company to provide him what he needs.
With Reed's brain, someone would soon have a billion dollar tech company of their own.
My example is NOT about making money, TBC.
Its about what each character is actually going to be capable of in a real world scenario.
Your missing the point even-though Testla was a better scientist, Edison stole his inventions, became a multi-millionaire and receive credit for inventions that wasn't his. While Testla died sick, broke and alone.Someone with just Reed knowledge of sciences would get screwed patent-wise, business-wise and socially. That would never happen with someone with Bruce's knowledge, beyond the sciences, Bruce is also an excellent businessman, knows how to get women and a social lion in any situation he happens to be in.

Please why do I have to explain something that should be self evident? Testla was screwed over by Edison not b/c he trusted him after the first couple of times. Testla was screwed over b/c Edison was a better businessman. Edison cut off his line of credit from banks and ruined any company Testla partnered with. At the end Edison got what he wanted practically all Testla inventions for a song.
Without also having Bruce knowledge of business, no matter how smart Reed might be or you with Reed Knowledge of science would get screwed over. Watch the Wolf of Wall Street, Shark tank or the old Dallas TV show. Simply put without the knowledge on how the game is played in the business world the Sharks will eat minow. It has nothing to do with personality, it has to do with knowledge pure & simple.
Tesla/Edison is comparing apples to Dyson Spheres in this case. Business knowledge or no, either way you'd be so brilliant compared to rl standards that you'd be rich in a goddamn hurry. But Lol @ patent laws and such being a hindrance to someone who can create planet-destroyers and travel dimensions.
Wolf of Wall Street is a movie. It's interesting because it's different. Where I work is very much in corporate America. It's not a bunch of dudes with their d*cks out trying to game the system.
I'd pick Reed and set to work first on prolonging my life indefinitely. I can learn anything I'm lacking, given time.
