John Carter of Mars
I grew up on Edgar Rice Burroughs novels, and John Carter of Mars was probably my favorite. Even over Tarzan. Carter was an eternal warrior and I loved the science fiction background, especially while I was growing up in the 1970s and the space race was the thing.
I read an article today that talked about the upcoming movie (2012). I hadn't really paid attention to Taylor Kitsch, the guy playing John Carter, because I'm going to see the movie anyway, no matter who's starring. But I have to admit, Kitsch has a good look for the character. I can definitely see him as John Carter.
