Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

November 14, 2005

Aww, yeah! Having been a Spider-Man fan since way back in the day, I am totally excited that Sandman is the new villain for Spider-Man 3. I have contended for a while that the CGI effects for his flowing, morphing limbs of sand would be truly awesome.

I once quoted Spider-Man (the movie and the original comic) on a take-home exam in Old Testament Foundations class. The question was on Hans Walter Wolff’s classic article “Kerygma of the Yahwist” (again, if you don’t know what those words mean you’re probably better off). In short, the Yahwist’s kerygma is that “with great power comes great responsibility,” especially a responsibility to take care of the poor. Wow… what a blend of Biblical scholarship and popular culture, huh?

Well, I’m excited.
