  • [Undocumented] The Brainiac Goggles no longer hide the Engineer's hardhat.


  • The word "brainiac", originally derived from the name of a super-intelligent supervillain from the classic Superman comic, has come to mean a very intelligent person. It is a portmanteau of the words 'brain' and 'maniac'.
  • Diplopia and strabismus are both real medical conditions; the former causing the affected to see one object as two, and the latter having one or more eyes misaligned.
