After his first appearance in 1912 in an American pulp magazine, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ literary character TARZAN became one of the most significant pop culture characters of the 20th century and the first quintessential superhero. Published in over 20 books and translated in more than 35 languages, the story of a feral boy raised by great apes was an immediate sensation, spawning radio shows, newspaper comic strips, graphic novels, multiple TV series and over 50 movies.
Though the vine-swinging TARZAN proved hugely popular among audiences, he was often met with much controversy and criticism. Despite the many heated debates surrounding TARZAN, the character nevertheless became a versatile vehicle for highlighting important topics including animal cruelty, colonialism, slavery and the current morals of society. Even TARZAN’s primivist “return to nature” philosophy remains relevant today, further illustrating why this legendary figure has endured generations of cultural change and continues to be such a compelling and timeless hero.
