Reed came from a relatively normal, suburban family. He had a mother and a step-father, as well as two younger half-sisters and an older brother. His father had left before Reed was even born, and he felt responsible for breaking apart the family. Something that set Reed apart from the others, is that he was born with the ability to remember absolutely anything he had ever heard or seen at any point in his life.
Smartest Man on Earth
When Reed was seventeen, he took a course that tested his abilities and intelligence. When his results came back, he was legally classified as a genius. The next month he entered a contest to see who the smartest teenager in America was, and he won the title. After graduating High School, he enrolled in college, but quickly dropped out after discovering he knew everything they were teaching. After dropping out, he entered another contest, this time for the whole world. After a few days of troubling contest, Reed was given the title, "Smartest Man on Earth".
Reed later joined NASA and instantly became their top scientist. after a week or two he met a beautiful woman named Susan Rosum, who tested animals to see if they could handle zero gravity, which she enjoyed, due to her love of animals. She and Reed became very good friends and they eventually began dating, and Reed felt he was in love. he had the wonderful idea to propose to her in space, so he requested that he and Sue take a flight into space to experiment on cosmic rays. NASA agreed, and the two of them went flying up within days.
