And best of all, he is JustForFun/OneOfUs. His lectures frequently reference science fiction movies (he's especially a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan) and comic book characters (he collects ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'', ''Franchise/GreenLantern'', and the ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica''), and [[http://www.space.com/18348-neil-tyson-superman-krypton-planet.html helped DC Comics name the star that Krypton orbits]] (red dwarf [=LHS=] 2520 in the Corvus constellation) and even makes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oo0qsauXeI a cameo appearance]] in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. He provided the title for the WebVideo/SymphonyOfScience songs ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akek6cFRZfY Onward to the Edge]]'' and ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGK84Poeynk We Are All Connected]]'', and appears in the videos. He appeared in season 4 episode 7 of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' as well as in season 5 episode 16 of ''Series/StargateAtlantis''. And as Sagan's successor, he hosted ''Series/CosmosASpacetimeOdyssey'' series. He even guest narrated on WebVideo/CinemaSins' Everything Wrong With series to help provide scientific inaccuracies with the films, ''Film/{{Gravity}}'', ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' and ''Film/TheMartian''. He plays Waddles the pig on ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' when he becomes hyper-intelligent (Waddles is normally "voiced" by Creator/DeeBradleyBaker). Something of a recurring character in ''WesternAnimation/FutureWorm'' and cameoed in the season 8 HalloweenEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''.

He has been criticized by some for being a little too casual with facts when presenting popular science. On one occasion, he misattributed a quote to George Bush and argued that Bush was disparaging Islam ([[http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/09/22/does-neil-degrasse-tyson-make-up-stories/ here's a summary of the controversy]]). In another case, critics argued that his series ''Series/CosmosASpacetimeOdyssey'' oversimplified the case of Giordano Bruno to make it a cartoonish story of good-scientist-evil-church. He has also gotten some flak for being too condescending or pretentious at times, especially on his Twitter. Regardless, he's done quite a lot for both the science community and the public, so it can be argued he's earned his spot on the shoulders of giants.
