— -- Some of the greatest minds in history are being given superpowers in an awesomely addictive new game called Science Kombat.

Let's take it a step further: Imagine those great minds were then pitted against each other in a hand-to-hand combat game with their superpowers used to battle each other.

The web-based game, which was released by Brazilian magazine Superinteressante, stars eight geniuses: Pythagoras, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Marie Curie, Alan Turing and Stephen Hawking, the only virtual contestant who is still alive today.

Each scientist's superpower is based on their contributions to the scientific world, so Stephen Hawking can sneak into a worm hole or fire a black hole at his opponent. Marie Curie can shoot polonium and radium with her hands, while Pythagoras can unleash a powerful Pythagorean theorem-style jump, sliding down the hypotenuse of the triangle and ambushing his opponent.
