    See, those are Edison, Tesla, Twain and JP Morgan. And there are many ways they can be connected.

    But I shall assume you’ve got your good and bad a wee bit mixed up, and say the connect is the awesome graphic novel ‘The Five Fists of Science’ in which Tesla and Twain are shown as the good guys, and Edison and JP Morgan are shown as the bad guys.


  2. After googling and wiki-ing I landed up here!
    The good=Tesla+Edison(famed war of currents)
    The Bad=J P Morgan+Mark Twain(of the War! prayer fame:) )
    Connection
    Five Fists Of Science the famous comic novel

    Or was it the fact that Jp morgan and henry ford were against the idea of tesla’s electric car?

    I’m confused :-\

    In The Five Fists of Science (2006) a graphic novel by Matt Fraction and Steven Sanders,Nikola Tesla teams up with Mark Twain to battle the evil forces of Thomas Edison and JP Morgan.
    I think the photos of Edison and Twain should be swapped for Bad and Good respectively.

    1. Edison & Tesla
    2. Twain & JP Morgan

    Edison apparently cheated Tesla – bad friends.
    Twain and Morgan helped him, though Morgan later withdrew his funding.


  10. Phani

    The Five Fists of Science(If we swap Mark Twain and Edison)


  11. Pankaj KR

    Graphic Novel “Five fists of science” in which the good Nikola Tesla and Mark Twain take on the bad forces of Thomas Edison and J P Morgan.

    There is Tesla (in good) and there is Edison (in bad)…
    I guess the answer is that \’The Bads tried to prevent the inventions of the Goods from making it big in the market\’.


  13. The Five Fists of Science! the graphic novel.. Nikola Tesla and Mark Twain V/S Thomas Edison and John Pierpont Morgan.

    War of Currents.. George Westinghouse and Nicholas Tesla on the side of AC… Thomas Edison and J P Morgan on the side of DC.

    The graphic novel – “The five fists of science”, with Tesla and Mark Twain as the good guys, and Edison and JP Morgan representing the forces of evil.


  18. BiGFooT

    War of the Currents – Tesla, Edison, Westinghouse and “dunno-who-that-chap-is”.

    This is the famous ‘War of Currents’ with Edison on the DC side and Tesla on the AC side.

    1. is Mark twain (who often financed Tesla’s scientific experiments)

    2. is Edison and JP Morgan(who used to finance Edison)


  20. gammafunction

    ERROR:
    1. is mark twain and Tesla
    2. is Edison and JP Morgan

    War of the Currents.
