Why Iron Man and Mr Fantastic’s First Inventions Are Owned by MCU’s Damage Control

Deadpool just revealed that Damage Control is the true inheritor of Tony Stark and Reed Richards’ life works.

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Deadpool Infinity Comic #1, now available on Marvel Unlimited.

Deadpool’s attempt to sneak into a auction for most of the Marvel Universe’s villains was prompted by an information leak from the true owners of Iron Man and Mister Fantastic’s patents. In the event of their deaths that is. Which has already happened. Quite a few times in fact, so the actual legal rights are a bit up in the air.

But the question of who owns the intellectual property isn’t as important as the question of who Tony Stark and Reed Richards settled upon as the best candidate to look after their life’s work. The two geniuses thought it over long and hard and selected Damage Control to be their beneficiary, as revealed in Deadpool Infinity Comic #1, by Gerry Duggan, Lucas Werneck, Geoffo, Rachelle Rosenberg and Joe Sabino. Inadvertently, this also foreshadowed Damage Control claiming alien tech in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As two of the brightest minds in the universe, Tony and Reed have plans for a lot of possibilities, including their deaths. They’ve both spent a lifetime cultivating scientific research, discoveries, and technology. In the event they weren’t there to look after their tech, it would be easy to see how it cold fall into the wrong hands or be twisted into something monstrous. So the two settled that the patents should go to people they trusted. In this case, that meant the patents would go to one another in the event one died before the other. But they also had to consider the possibility that they might both die in the line of duty. With their jobs that’s just an occupational hazard.

So they found their ideal third party to look after their technologies. Damage Control first debuted in Marvel Comics Presents #19 by Dwayne McDuffie and Ernie Colon as a construction company that specialized in rebuilding the damage left behind by superpowered battles. It would later go on to become the premier archival site for unclaimed technology and weapons left behind by villains and heroes alike. Tony Stark trusted them enough to be a main shareholder, so he has vetted them personally and can vouch for their credibility.

And seeing as how both Iron Man and Mister Fantastic died during the “Onslaught” event, the patents for their tech would then have gone to Damage Control. And while their resurrections would complicate the legal work, the company was the best choice when compared to more militant organizations like S.H.I.E.L.D. who have a history of infiltration or misusing their advanced technology. Even trusted allies such as the Avengers really aren’t ideal candidates. Aside from their constantly changing roster, most other heroes comprising the Avengers aren’t in the same league of intelligence as Reed and Tony.

Ultimately, it came down to the question of who would be least likely to misuse their technology. From there the next question would be about who would use their technology the least. And Damage Control would be the first name on their lips. Their whole reason for existing, aside from cleaning up the messes superheroes leave behind, is to keep dangerous weapons and tech out of the wrong hands.

So while the temptation to use those patents would be there, Damage Control could be trusted to curb that desire in favor of the greater good. And in all likelihood, the Reed’s patents would probably pass over to Valeria Richards when she was old enough. But their choice of beneficiary also highlights why Damage Control appeared in the MCU as the group that handles clean up after a major attack like the Battle of New York.

They’re perfectly equipped to handle the job and contain any potential threats. And most importantly, Damage Control possesses the dedication to keep the public safe from what remains of individuals with great power.
