Hey Venom, just stopped by to mention that this was a good choice of posting. Also, to agree with you 100% about him. No doubt a genius, Tesla was ridiculed by Edison when Tesla offered the concept of alternating current, rather than Edison's direct current. Can you imagine the amount of wiring we would need if we used DC instead of AC as our energy grid. I don't think there would be any copper or aluminum left on the earth...LOL If I remember correctly, Edison used AC to show how dangerous it was, by shocking animals and inmates to death, to try to destroy the practicality of AC. Tesla would also "one-up" him with the invention of the induction motor. Although often described as being strange in his several of his ideas, he definitely fits the word, "visionary".
