Oliver Sansweet is a minor character, and minor antagonist, in The Incredibles.
Oliver Sansweet was a man who had decided to end his problems by committing suicide. To that end, he leaped off of his bank’s building, and was plummeting to the ground, when Mr. Incredible intervened by leaping off of a nearby building and catching him. During the course of this action, both men flew through a window and rolled to a stop. At this point Mr. Sansweet suffered some sort of injuries.
Mr. Incredible realized that there was something wrong, and so he dragged Mr. Sansweet to the side, and hid him behind a desk. He remained there for a while, and was apparently rescued after Mr. Incredible’s battle with Bomb Voyage.
Complaining that his injuries caused him daily pain, Mr. Sansweet obtained the services of a lawyer, and launched a lawsuit against Mr. Incredible in Superior Court. In the end, the count case, known as Sansweet v. Incredible, was successful, and Mr. Sansweet was awarded a large settlement. Since, apparently, the supers were operating under the aegis of the United States government it seems that this money was paid by the government.
After that time, Mr. Sansweet disappears from the movie, and it is not known what became of him.
- The Wikipedia page, List of The Incredibles characters lists Mr. Sansweet as the, "president of a bank in Municiberg."
- Though Sansweet is a real surname, it was possibly chosen for this character because san or sans can mean “without,” making his name mean something like “without sweetness” or “bitter.” And, Oliver Sansweet was definitely bitter.
- Sansweet is one of the few characters to not appear in the video game, LEGO The Incredibles.
