SFX Presents The A-Z Of John Carter: C

Your guide to the world of John Carter , a letter a day until release

C is for Clark Kent

Or as he’s known on his home planet, Kal-El, known to our world as Superman. Superman is another character heavily influenced by the John Carter Of Mars novels. A man from another planet finds the abilities he has on his home planet are heightened and superior his new planet’s inhabitants (check out the gravity-defying leaps Carter maked in the trailer below) and like John Carter, Superman also falls in love with a native girl.
