A scientific war dwarf

I was playing City of Villains with Deb and Anthony on Sunday night, and we were discussing an irregularity in one of my characters. Basically, he looks like a barbarian dwarf, with a war hammer and a shield, but he got his powers through a "Science" origin. We discussed as follows:

Anthony: "So why is your mace/shield barbarian guy is Science origin?"
Me: "I don't know. I haven't figured out his story."
A: "He bashes people on the head, for Science?"
M: "Perhaps he was accidentally brought to the present through some time-travel experiment."
A: "But that doesn't explain the origin of his powers, just his presence."
M: "His powers came through the experiment. With Science."
A: "Science is awesome."

PS - Science is awesome.
PPS - Especially if it can bring super-powered barbarian dwarfs into the present.

It's science.

There are some great "for science" quotes floating around the web. One that I particularly like is "I'd like to anesthetise your buttocks. For science." but I can't find the original article. It was something about discovering that pilots fly better when they can feel the plane movements through their seats.
