From the real world we see Soviet 'biologist' Trofim Lysenko, high flying and deep diving Auguste Piccard, wacky alien communicating Nikola Tesla, Dr Stanley Milgram, Sidney Gottlieb, Madame Curie, explosives technician Jack Parsons (and his connection with L Ron Hubbard), coax cable inventor Oliver Heaviside, and tv inventor Philo Farnsworth.
Fictional characters include Dr Evil, Dr Julius No, Professor Calculus (from Tintin, and he's based off Auguste Piccard), Captain Nemo, Lex Luthor, Dr Moreau, Victor Frankenstein, Seth Brundle (The Fly), Dr Jeckyll (and Mr Hyde), and Futurama's Hubert J Farnsworth.
The recaps of these characters, both real and fictional are educational and trivia filled. My only complaint is the absence of Doc Brown of 'Back to the Future' fame. If you have read brainy robot guy Wilson's other books, be sure and read this one. Totally capable of having a sequal to include other mad scientists (or even just really angry ones).
