I wrote this a while ago and sent it to a friend of mine who is in the comic industry, she was too busy to do anything with it -- and so I am only I, but I thought it would be fun to share it with the world.
I haven't decided if Sergey Brin (Google Co-Founder) is more like Bruce Wayne, or Tony Stark -- but he's apparently training to be a super-hero.
I think it'd be fun to see him in the next avengers movie! when the world is attacked by demigod from a parallel universe; frankly he is the guy I want on our side. From the article above the following are a few initiatives he's actively involved in:
*Autonomous Self Driving Cars
*Heads up Displays on Glasses
*Having a computer with technical blue prints and maps of every building
*Space Ships that are mining asteroids
Oh, and when he's NOT working on geeky stuff he's a fitness nut who is intent on being super buff.
So he's basically a real live cross between Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark. If you don't believe me, then let me point out a few more data points that were not in the article:
This guy is a pilot! He currently owns a fighter jet that he parks on a nasa base (moffet field). Did I mention he's also a bit of a recluse as well? At the Google I/O conference he introduced all his friends who are clearly very well versed in skydiving, rappelling, and stunt BMX riding!
The comic or movie was an idea for one that loosely parallels the lives of the Google founders (but is set a few years in the future after the two CEO's have come to an impasse and split in their quarrel, one who is corrupted by wall street and pulled to "The Dark Side", one who holds true to the "don't be evil" Google motto).
Since Sergey has nearly unlimited money, and he is only one lab accident, or love-interest-gone-horribly-wrong from being a super villain! So the story could be told either way.
Frankly I think it'd be much more fun to watch than "The Social Network."
