Famous Scientists Get Special Powers in Awesome 8-Bit Style Animations
Scientists are already changing the world for the better, so they don't really need to be given superpowers to make them any cooler. That being said, when we heard that designers had given some of the world's greatest scientific minds their very own special moves, we were more than a little bit curious.

Created by Diego Sanches for a project called 'Science Combat' over at Brazilian Publication Super Interssante, the animations below are the first stage of what will eventually become playable science heroes that use their creations and discoveries to defeat their foe in Street Fighter style combat. And before you say it, we know these aren't true 8-bits, but that's definitely the vibe we were getting!

Charles Darwin


Special Move #1: Evolution


Special Move #2: Natural Selection


Stephen Hawking


Special Move #1: Wormhole




Albert Einstein


Special Move #1: Relativity



Special Movie #2: E=MC2



Nikola Tesla


Special Move #1: Teleforce Death Ray



Special Move #2: Tesla Coil




Isaac Newton


Special Move #1: Optiks



Special Move #2: Gravity



Marie Curie


Special Move #1: Radium



Special Move #2: Polonium



Pythagoras


Special Move #1: Pythagorean Theorem



Special Move #2: Tetractys



Honestly, I would play the heck out of a video game that allowed me to pit my favorite science hero against a host of big bads, so hopefully Science Combat becomes playable soon. My personal favorite has to be Darwin though. Seeing him transform using his powers of Evolution brought back some serious memories of that classic fighter, Killer Instinct.....that's not a bad comparison to have.
