Reed Richards is a dick because he knows that his universe, and all other universes save one, are fictional, and this informs his view of morality. At least, that’s how I explain that period where he was creating pocket universes and accelerating their entropy because before everyone in them died they made awesome music that Sue enjoyed.
WELL SO THERE’S THAT.

Tony throws great parties. Reed throws one party every couple of years, and they’re always BYOB.
Headcanon accepted. Reed seems like the kind of guy who would also call you up an hour before the party and ask you to bring food ‘cause he forgot.

Didn’t he also get in a fight with Sue and smack her around? Some time during the whole Namor thing.
To my knowledge he never hit Sue, but I haven’t read Fantastic Four in any detail. I did read it in reasonable detail during the Civil War arc, because I didn’t know any better, but I don’t recall him hitting her. That seems pretty far beyond the pale even for comic books.
I mean, Panther and Storm were punching each other as he annulled their marriage a couple of weeks ago, but they were in the middle of actual combat, it wasn’t like it was a personal fight that got out of hand.

“If you can’t tell Captain America what you’re up to, you probably shouldn’t be doing it” Thank you, Sam. This is now the moral compass of my life. Srsly.
I guess it’s not a bad one!

I dislike Hank Pym waaaaaay more than I dislike Reed Richards, but that comes down to my unnecessary amputation squick and the stuff that happened in Marvel Zombies.
I first encountered Hank as the abusive loser in Ultimates who tried to kill his wife with bug spray and then got curb-stomped by Steve Rogers, which I think permanently coloured my view of him. And it’s a shame because he’s actually kind of sweet in 616, even if he did build a robot that wants to destroy the planet and can’t seem to get his act together in re: Jan.
Fact: When Reed gets invited to potlucks, he always brings one bag of off-brand potato chips.
The fight with Sue where he slapped her did happen, but I finally tracked it back to a thing where she turned evil due to mind control, kicked everybody’s asses, and the whole thing was a calculated strategy to break the psychic hold. (My money had previously been on it being an evil duplicate/mind-control plot aimed at Reed.)
