    Default Nikola Tesla Vs. Albert Einstein

    Nikola Tesla:

    The first true mad scientist, bizarre and eccentric, but with such a keen understanding of electricity that we can almost single-handedly credit him with the development of the modern age of technology.


    Albert Einstein:

    When you speak the word "Scientist" he's the person who comes to mind. Physicist with great hair most reknowned for relativity, and establishing the equivalency between energy and mass. Also played a pretty good hand in the creation of the Atomic bomb, not quite a royal flush, but better than three aces.


    [hr]

    Two of the greatest scientists in history face off in a battle of SCIENCE! These men are not motivated by fame or fortune, indeed their motivations might not even be wholly understandable by any of us. The only thing that is certain is that they wish to destroy their rival.


    Rules of Engagement:

    At their fingertips are every device ever attributed to them, including both stuff they actually made, and inventions credited to them as a result of folklore or popular culture. This means Tesla has access to Tesla cannons to defend his base, and can launch balls of energy from his Tunguska Cannon across the Antlantic Ocean to light up the Russian sky, while Einstein has nothing less than the Grandpappy of explosives, the Atomic Bomb itself.

    Both Scientists has been scooped out of their respective timelines by super-advanced cultures with an immense (and completely equal) industrial base with which to produce machines to oppose the other scientist. These cultures and entirely composed of humans, oppose each other completely, and are willing to genocide each other without any remorse so long as they don't also die. They have access to equally skilled bureaucrats and generals which will carry out their orders with great efficieny and strategy. Indeed, the only difference between the two is the scientific marvels they can equip their forces with, and use on each other.

    Both have access to time travel.

    Gentlemen, who wins?

    Einstein loses badly, because Tesla was a vampire with powers over magnetism and is backed by a nigh invulnerable robot scientist. Both can survive a nuclear apocalypse. He also possess a cloning machine.

    Whoever uses time travel better.

    I'd say Tesla. He has the range on Einstein and can blast him with lightning bolts from across the Atlantic while Einstein is trying to get his bomb over to Tesla. A stealth fighter might give Einstein a chance, if he has access to one, but with just their inventions and WWII era technology Tesla's lightning blasts can win it.

    Tesla waits for Einstein to build an atom bomb, then detonates it with a blast from his Tunguska Cannon, all while hundreds of miles away. Einstein dies in the blast, Tesla takes over the world.

    Both of them lose to Thomas Edison, who ruins them both first by a smear campaign, and then proceeds to beat them with their own technology, since he decided to steal it.

    I wouldn't count on that.

    Someone earlier mentioned Tesla has his son, Dr. Atomic Robo Tesla.

    They didn't mention that Robo employs one Jenkins, former Majestic 12 operative, and one of the deadliest individuals in serialized fiction.

    His performance against Lovecraftian entities is impressive.

    Fighting vampires, he's terrifying.

    Against humans, well, it's just unfair.

    Einstein was very much a pacifist. I'm unsure as to Tesla's attitude towards violence, although pop culture Tesla constructs death rays, but Einstein would not deign to be part of this sort of thing.

    Tesla, however, was a Time Lord. So, he would have a Tardis.

    Popculture and myths aside, Tesla would still have an advantage of being applied physicist instead of a pure theoretician like Einstein. Einstein never worked on atomic bomb to begin with - his whole involvment was the letter he wrote to US president.

    On the other hand, Tesla did build coils strong enough to blast lightnings 7 meters long. He is the guy, who invented alternating current in it's whole - engines, power plants, wireless energy transfer and many, many more directly applicable things.

    A draw. Einstein never believed in violence, and Tesla was such a meritocrat he thought only the brightest and most successful people should be parents (his sad life meant he excluded himself from this list) and recognizing Einstein's genius, would no doubt consider it a terrible loss if the man was to come to harm by his science.

    They then team up to defeat Thomas Edison before engaging in a timeline-spanning battle of wits with GLaDOS.

    Most of those aren't properly mad. Archimedes gets points for inventing the first Death Ray, though.
    However, there's Frederick the second.
