Howdy, was wondering what people thought would be the ideal science based superhero?
This should start some interesting chains of thought, feel free to add onto other peoples ideas, make it a team effort! :) :) :)

Firstly, a hero is to a substantial extent defined by his opponent (or opponents) - although, this is not as simple as regarding the 'bad guy' as the foe.

A classic science based superhero was in many ways Sherlock Holmes.  His opponents were not really the criminals he was up against (they were merely the tools), his real opponents were the bumbling police officers who were to display the unscientific ways of failing to catch a criminal, when contrasted to Sherlock Holmes' supposedly very scientific means of catching the bad guys.

If you mean sombody with superpowers, then howabout sombody who could control the way molecules vibrate, in any way? perhaps he could condense the water in the air into ice spikes, and then ignite an explosion behind them to send them flying!
