Thumbs up Linux Torvalds compares to which science fiction character?

If you had a choice to choose the most similar science fiction genius or innovative character that closely resembles Linus Torvalds, who would your choice be?

The categories you can get a character that compares closest to Linus Torvalds includes all the mediums: Books, Plays, Television, Movies and Commercials.
