Michael Faraday did so much more

I'm astonished that the article section didn't mention that Faraday also discovered electromagnetic induction and used it to invent both the mechanically driven AC electric generator and the transformer that are the basis of pretty much the entrire worldwide electricity supply industry!

That said, my vote is for James Clerk Maxwell because Faraday has already been on the £20 note
