Geology in the Movies – Coarse-grained villain
Instead of talking about geologists in the movies, my contribution to The Accretionary Wedge #7 is a real quick post about my favorite geology-related villain in a movie — Sandman from Spiderman comics.
How awesome is that? This is a villain for a sedimentologist … he’s made out of particles between 0.0625 mm and 2 mm in diameter. I’m not sure what the sorting is.
I suppose the next-favorite geology-related villain would Lex Luthor as played by Gene Hackman in the first Superman movie with Christopher Reeve. His whole plan was to jump-start the San Andreas Fault with some warheads. Yes!
