And yet again, the oppressive hegemonic patriarchy rears it's ugly head.

No Marie Curie? No Linda Lovelace? No Admiral Grace Hopper?

Does the Stephen Hawkings one come with an S&M kit?

Sorry. I mistook the Marie Curie action figure for Bride of Frankenstein.

That'd be funny. Also, Erwin Schrodinger's should come with a cat.

The concept dolls were created using digital paint and manipulation techniques.

In other words they don't exist.

Schrodinger's action figure shouldn't have clear plastic on the box. So he can be in there and not at the same time.

Edward Teller, of course. At least according to Farkistan.

My Edward Teller figure would have an Atomic Death Grip, and would crush that damm commie Oppenheimer's trachea.....

/My diorama. Let me show you it....

Isn't it a little bit of a misnomer to call it a Stephen Hawking "action figure".

Also, many of the people aren't "great scientists" so much as "pretty good scientists with a talent for explioting the media".

/has an Einstein action figure
//mom insisted on buying it for me

Ah yes. I didn't even get into evolution denialists.

I guess this issue needs to be addressed: by "superviilain of science" do you mean those who use science for evil or those who oppose science?

I figured the latter, as the heroes were those who progressed science, so the villains would be those who hold it back.

Stan Lee could do those diabolical villians that oppose science. Frank Miller could do the deeper, more complex "science for evil" bits.

So.....Let me get this straight.

3 farking rows of physicists and mathematicians, 4 chemists, 3 biologists and 1 engineer.
No Borlaug.

Your list is skewed!

Last time Richard Dawkins actually did science was his research on digger wasp behavior in the late 1970s. Everything since has been popularization and polemics.

Borlaug is a villain. He made it possible to side step the natural process of famine as population control. Our ever over-crowding planet thanks him.

It's not so much overpopulated as poorly organised and containing too many people with bad tempers.

For Series 2, they would need Witten, Werner von Braun, Louis Pasteur, Isaac Newton, James Hutton, Robert Jarvik, Galileo Galilei, Nicolaus Copernicus, Frederick Banting...

William Shockley? He was the closest you could get to an actual evil genius; super smart but a crazy paranoid, uber-pain in the ass.

Eugenics was a fairly common viewpoint among scientists of the Era. Look at Watson.

I was thinking more about his management style and douchebagstic self-importance. His eugenic point of view didn't help
