** Which is just silly; Barsoom and Mars both have the same surface gravity (0.38 of Earth's surface gravity, so John Carter would only be able to lift a bit over 2.5 times more than what he is capable of on Earth.

* EmotionEater: At one point he explains that he (and by extension all Therns) feed off of the negative emotions of other life forms. Thus making the Therns a kind of PsychicVampire race.
