Henry Wu in Jurassic Park

By Michael Crichton

Henry Wu

Still a young man, Wu is the park's chief geneticist. Obviously brilliant in his field, Wu's astounding ignorance about the biology of the animals he's making proves disastrous. He unknowingly engineers some of the all-female dinosaurs with the ability to switch their sex (frog DNA'll do that to you, apparently). Faced with overwhelming evidence that the animals are breeding, Wu refuses to see reason, dismissing the possibility because his own awesomeness couldn't possibly allow it to happen. His own awesomeness, unfortunately, doesn't prevent him from getting slashed to death by Velociraptors.
