Co-Founder of Tesison Energy and Hypertropolis
In the real world, Edison died in 1933. In Adventure! he did not die until at least 1953, making him well over 100 years old when he died. Our Hypertropolis game takes place in 1933, and Edison is currently 86 years old. Other than that, everything else in his Wikipedia article, other than the feud with Tesla, is fact.
