Did you get a chance to check out Glenn Walker’s piece about the legendary Avengers time travelling villain Kang from earlier this week? It’s turned into quite the conversation starter out there on Twitter and quite honestly, gave me a whole new insight into one of Marvel’s most notable villains. It also got me thinking about some of the other characters out there in the pop culture world that have had their own obsessions with time. After mulling it over, I put together a list of some of my favourites:
Sarah Connor – Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Give a hand to the amazing Linda Hamilton – she knocked it out of the park when she went from mouse to lion for her role as Sarah Connor, trying to protect her son John from anything that gets in their way as she prepares him for Judgement Day and Skynet.
Doc Brown – Back To The Future
1.21 gigawatts! That’s all it took for Christopher Llyod’s Doc Emmett Brown to create a Delorean that can travel back in time. Well, that and a while mess of plutonium. That’s heavy.
Wormholes, time travcl and talking silver rabbits. Jake Gyllenhaal’s Donnie Darko deals with all of them in one of the best films about all of those subjects from the past decade.
