As I indicated earlier, I do not like John Carter. He is the squarest of all square jawed manly man heroes and I have never liked the pulpy square jawed hero type. (I generally prefer the snarky sidekicks or the grim yet reliable sidekicks. They are more interesting and I almost never want to hit them with bricks.) I also dislike him because of his being or having been a Confederate, but that’s an entirely different rant.
Actually, he just discovers that the gravity is lighter.Part of my (snarky) over view of Burroughs A Princess of Mars.
