Selevine. Selevine was created by the French author Serge Held and appeared in La Mort du Fer (1931).
Selevine is a Russian engineer who is working at the foundries in Morain when he observes a curious germ which seems to eat iron. He releases it into the world, with the result that first the French iron industry is devastated, and then the rest of the world is affected. Attempts to replace iron with plastics and other materials are unsuccessful, and civilization collapses.
