What if history’s most celebrated scientists hadn’t used their discoveries for the betterment of humankind but to fight each other in a Mortal-Kombat-esque game? That’s part of the premise behind this series of gifs that artist Diego Sanches made for Brazil’s Superinteressante magazine. 

The game, Science Combat, is said to be ‘in development’, and it has 8 playable characters.

Albert Einstein

Marie Curie

Stephen Hawking

Charles Darwin


Isaac Newton

Nikola Tesla

Two characters are yet to be disclosed.

But wait, that’s not all. Check out these superpowers!

Darwin’s Evolution

Einstein’s Relativity

Hawking’s Wormhole

Hawking’s Black Hole

Newton’s Optics

Newton’s Gravity

Pythagorean Theorem

Tesla’s Teleforce Death Ray

Tesla Coil

And once you defeat all your opponents, you face the final boss – Divinity, because science’s biggest nemesis is religion, right?

Who can take the form of many gods, like Ganesha

And even Thor

Best for the last though – Omnipotence!

Please make it happen!
