    [Sondage] Tarzan vs Conan: and one shall be king!

    Plus iconique, c'est dur!

    Le seigneur de la jungle contre le roi d'Aquilonia


    Tarzan's jungle upbringing gives him abilities far beyond those of
    ordinary humans. These include climbing, clinging, and leaping as well
    as any great ape, or better. He uses branches and hanging vines to swing
    at great speed, a skill acquired among the anthropoid apes.

    His strength, speed, agility, reflexes, senses, flexibility, and
    swimming are extraordinary in comparison to normal men. He has wrestled
    full grown bull apes and gorillas, lions, rhinos, crocodiles, pythons,
    sharks, tigers, man-size seahorses (once) and even dinosaurs (when he
    visited Pellucidar).

    He learns a new language in days, ultimately speaking many languages, including that of the great apes, French, English, Dutch, German, Swahili, many Bantu dialects, Arabic, ancient Greek, ancient Latin, Mayan, the languages of the Ant Men and of Pellucidar.

    He also communicates with many species of jungle animals.


    Despite his brutish appearance, Conan uses his brains as well as his
    brawn. The Cimmerian is a talented fighter, but his travels have given
    him vast experience in other trades, especially as a thief;
    he is also a talented commander, tactician and strategist, as well as a
    born leader. In addition, Conan speaks many languages, including
    advanced reading and writing abilities: in certain stories, he is able
    to recognize, or even decipher, certain ancient or secret signs and
    writings. He also has incredible stamina, enabling him to go without
    sleep for a few days.

    Another noticeable trait is his sense of humor, largely absent in the
    comics and movies but very much a part of Howard's original vision of
    the character, particularly apparent in "Xuthal of the Dusk", also known as "The Slithering Shadow."

    He is a loyal friend to those true to him, with a barbaric code of
    conduct that often marks him as more honorable than the more
    sophisticated people he meets in his travels. Indeed, his
    straightforward nature and barbarism are constants in all the tales.

    Conan is a formidable armed and unarmed combatant. With his back to
    the wall Conan is capable of engaging and killing opponents by the
    score. This is seen in several stories, such as "Queen of the Black Coast", "The Scarlet Citadel" and "A Witch Shall be Born".
    Conan is not superhuman, though; he did need the providential help of
    Zelata's wolf to defeat four Nemedian soldiers in the story The Hour of the Dragon.
    Some of his hardest victories have come from fighting single opponents
    of inhuman strength: one such as Thak, the ape man from "Rogues in the House", or the strangler Baal-Pteor in "Shadows in Zamboula".
    Conan is far from untouchable and has been captured and defeated
    several times (on one occasion knocking himself out drunkenly running
    into a wall).

    Un duel épique quel que soit le milieu adopté! Dans la jungle, ça tourne à l'avantage de Tarzan, mais en terrain dégagé, celui-ci aura fort à faire face au barbare. Si Conan arrive à chopper une lame, je crois qu'on peut dire bye bye à Tarzan par contre.
