I was wondering the other day, with all the futuristic technolgy they have in the marvel U alone, from aliens to tony stark, they should have some pretty wicked appliances for everyday people not necessarily a flying car because some might argue that it would be so expensive to procure or to produce, but I haven't really seen any evidence(maybe you have) that the everyday man has benifited in any way from all these wonderous new inventions. It just doesn't make any sense to me but then again I might have overlooked something you haven't in which case please enlighten me.

They do....but once they can afford a fly car, they decide to become a super.

Silly question.

@Sovereign Vance: why is that silly, I mean most of the citizens have the same boring technolgy we have in the real world, just doesn't add up

I would assume that tech would be extremely expensive.Regular Cars are expensive.It's possible the comic companies are trying to be realistic.

@Hawk:  thats a good point, did you ever notice most millionaires in comics are either super heroes or super villians

That's not true..we just don't know the other millionaires because they aren't important.

forget the big expensive tech, there isn't even minor improvments in everyday civilian life, with technolgy in their world, that is leaps and bounds beyond ours, does that really make sense to you?

I think it's smarter to keep Civilian life as is.It ruins the fantasy that any of this crap could actually happen or the Earth-616 is the real world.Our world.

@Sovereign Vance:  are you freakin kidding me, if anything it would add  realism if normal citizens were affected by the outcome of all this new tech, and to say that keeping them in the dark enhances the fantasy that  hundreds of super heroes could inhabbit our world, that just doesn't make any sense

No i'm not kidding you.If the normal everyday tech in comics advanced above ours..how would the be more realistic? Most of the tech that his been made in comics has been for special use only.Iron Man isn't going to pass out suits,Pym isn't going to sell Pym pockets.Iron Man sells his tech because that's his business but only to shield and the military.There is no point of going further than that.Most superhero\villain tech is made on a "mission basis".

@Sovereign Vance: it would be a more realistic depection of a world affected by aliens and super heroes, screw that it's not ours exactly, our world doesn't have thunder gods from valhalla battling giant robots in cities, and I'm not talkin about everybody owning a freakin iron man suit, I'm talking about improved appliances dedicated to making everyday life easier, not so normal citizens can battle super villians, You are missing the point

@King Saturn:  Oh man if you're worried about people driving bad, imagine all the pieces of sh** that would fly around like jack***es, I think the crash and burn ratio would go Wayyyy up.

@Sovereign Vance:  oh and by the way, I just found a website that listed the vast majority of millionaries in the marvel universe, Guess what they all had in common, they were either super heroes or super villians

Whatever the website is probably only listed superheroes because nobody cares about civilian millionaires in comics.

actually stark industries sells all kinds of stuff....they really aren't that big of a military supplier any more....remember the first arc of Invincible Iron man where everyone is running around with those sweet looking Stark tech phones?

I think they don't because we are supposed to have the illusion they are in a world similar to ours
