SFX Presents The A-Z Of John Carter: G

Not-so-little green men from Mars

G is for Green Men

Also known as Tharks, The “Green Men” of Barsoom are tusked, 9-10 foot tall, four-armed creatures, who are tribal and primitive. Historically a once-great race but now nomadic and dispersed; their survival-of-the fittest beliefs often fuel their aggressive, combative behaviour. They use their tusks in in challenges to power, interlocking them confrontationally.

The story of John Carter has influenced films we all know and love, from Star Wars to Superman . To introduce you to the world of John Carter we’ve put together a full A-Z which will run all the way through to 9 March when John Carter hits cinemas, so make sure you check SFX every day until then.
