The many fictional worlds of our fictional friends are full to the brimming with physicists, chemists, entomologists and multi-disciplinary geniuses whose work can only be described with three exclamation points: SCIENCE!!!  The Professor kept a gang of idiots alive for decades in the wilderness, Batman’s skills in the sciences allow him to survive in a world of literal supermen, and nearly everyone in the Marvel Universe has a doctorate in something.  (Otto Octavius’ Ph D is in, I think, gravy.)  But which of the eggheads is the eggiest makes for a fun exercise, leading to today’s tenured query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds that Miss Sakamoto that she is, indeed, good heavens beautiful, asking: Which fictional practitioner of “SCIENCE!!!” do you feel is number one on the periodic table?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
