Theoretical physicist, patent clerk, statesman, philosopher, amateur violinist, father of modern physics, superstar, one of the smartest humans in history, and the most famous scientist of the 20th century.

* ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'': In "Out of Time", time traveling villains convince the Nazis to attempt to kidnap Einstein to use his genius to win WWII. The Legends rescue him, but Professor Martin Stein is [[BrokenPedestal disappointed]] to find his idol is a DirtyOldMan. Stein ends up punching him out when he refuses to cooperate with them.

Born in Ulm, Germany, Einstein was the son of an engineer. He was gifted in math and science from an early age. (The urban legend that he failed mathematics in high school was completely untrue. He did fail the entrance examination to The Zürich Institute of Technology, [[CripplingOverspecialization because the exam was in]] ''[[CripplingOverspecialization French]]'', [[CripplingOverspecialization a language he read poorly]][[note]]On the other hand, [[UsefulNotes/DichterAndDenker Wernher von Braun]] ''did'' fail ninth-grade algebra, so you can use that to cheer your kid up about his bad grades if you like.[[/note]]) [[TeenGenius He first started thinking about relativity at the age of 16]], as he tried to imagine how a light wave would look if he traveled with it at the speed of light.[[note]]The idea of relativity was sort of "in the air" when Einstein was growing up in TheGayNineties, as the similarly-multitalented Austrian Ernst Mach was articulating it at the time. There is no question, however, that Einstein's contributions were revolutionary [[/note]]

* He was OneOfUs. The next time you feel bad because you're obsessed with a "kid's" show, remember Einstein was a fan of the early 1950's TV puppet show and ''WesternAnimation/BeanyAndCecil'' precursor ''Time for Beany'', which was a kid's show heavy on ParentalBonus. He reputedly interrupted a high-level conference by announcing, "You will have to excuse me, gentlemen. It's ''Time for Beany''."

He was also noted to be a fan of comics, several times during his days as a patent clerk he was often found reading them rather than working.

*After getting the shit kicked out of him, the time cop of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' finds Einstein, whom he believes to be Rick, and assaults him shouting "you dont mess with time". Upset, Einstein states that he will mess with time, writing E=mc2 on his board as he gets up.

* Einstein has often been accused of plagiarism. It is true that other scientists had written about relativity before Einstein. In fact, relativity as a concept is first considered by ''Galileo'' in 1632, although Galileo's work didn't include anything like time slowing down as you speed up or lengths contracting. It was [[CoolOldGuy Hendrik Lorentz]] that first came up with the idea that light speed is constant, and it was [[TheSmartGuy Henri Poincare]] who originally came up with the equation E = mc[[superscript:2]], only he wrote it as "m = E/c[[superscript:2]]". But to Einstein's credit, he was the only person to realize that relativity can be applied to the entire universe. Also, Lorentz and Poincare made very different physical assumptions than Einstein - namely the existence of a perfect reference point and the [[ScienceMarchesOn Luminiferous Aether]]. Though [[TheObiWan Lorentz]] and Einstein would become friends, Einstein never got over (what he perceived to be) Poincare's scientific conservatism.

* In ''Literature/TalesOfMU'', Einstein's quote "God does not play dice with the universe" is referenced during a discussion on whether or not there's a god of magic (which leads to the inevitable [[RandomNumberGod comparison to rolling dice]]).
