While this zombie has slightly below average stats, his ability is truly what makes him shine. Any zombie he Conjures gains the Bullseye trait, allowing it to do damage to the plant hero without charging the Super-Block Meter.
Due to the many cards in the science tribe, there are many different types of zombies that can be Conjured by him. A few examples of incredibly devastating zombies with Bullseye are Zombot Plank Walker and Zombot 1000.
However, there is quite a high chance that Cosmic Scientist will Conjure a trick or environment, thus rendering the additional ability of giving the zombie Bullseye utterly useless. He may also Conjure zombies that already have the Bullseye trait such as Wormhole Gatekeeper. However, this does not mean the card Conjured will be useless, as he can Conjure useful tricks and environments like Laser Base Alpha, Area 22, and Rocket Science. There are also trick cards that are affected by his ability, such as Zombot's Wrath or Final Mission.
Bouncing this zombie with Firefighter or Secret Agent will allow this zombie to Conjure another science card. If you are Huge-Gigantacus or Super Brainz, you can also play Mixed-Up Gravedigger to reuse his ability.
Do not Bounce this unless necessary or it can ensure your win, as the zombie hero can replay this to Conjure another Science card.
You can also Bounce the zombie that has been Conjured by him to remove the Bullseye trait from them, but beware of zombies with "When played" abilities such as Gadget Scientist and Zombot 1000.
