[[http://comicsbyshaenon.free-forums.org/comicsbyshaenon-forum-6.html The Mad Scientist Wars]] is an ongoing {{Fanfic}} story, set in the same universe as the webcomic ''{{Narbonic}}''. It also added ''GirlGenius'' into the canon some time ago, and with the recent character originating from Literature/{{Discworld}} is becoming the strict Universe equivalent of a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover. That is, the ''canon'' may involve several different Universes, including original characters' backgrounds, but no characters from any of these works [[spoiler:except Jane Narbon's parents]] have yet to actually appear.

It started as a series of increasingly silly comments on the comments sections in the Narbonic Director's Commentary, before moving to its own forum, where it has--pardon the pun--''mutated'' into a sprawling, ongoing work.

So far, the plot has been divided into "Chapters"--each one, after the end of the very beginning's more chaotic start, run by a different player, who assumes the role of 'GM' for the duration. At 16+ chapters and over two full year of dedicated play, the game has currently spanned [[ArchiveBinge 275+]] pages of posts. (Luckily, a condensed Plot Summary is in the works for [[ArchivePanic new players]].)

* BadassBookworm Most members of the Tinker family fit this trope-- they tend to be bespectacled, lab-coat wearing geeks who can kick your ass six ways to Sunday, save the world, and do it with ''science''. Dr. Andrew Tinker is probably ''the'' definitive example- he's an ''English Professor''.

We swear, it's BetterThanItSounds. Despite the silliness, a lot of effort goes into it. Character development has occurred over time, loads of extra material and backstory has been worked out--even a full explanation of the combined time line from two different canons being used.
