Tarzan comes from the Greystokes family. A wealthy and respected family in Europe. Both of his parents were stranded with this infant on the coasts of Africa. They soon died leaving John as a defenseless toddler. But luckily a tribe of Great Apes adopted him, raising him to be like them. He quickly bared the name, Tarzan, which meant White Skin in the Apes native tongue.
As a Child
From early childhood he had used his hands to swing from branch to branch after the manner of his giant mother, and as he grew older he spent hour upon hour daily speeding through the tree tops with his brothers and sisters.
He could spring twenty feet across space at the dizzy heights of the forest top,and grasp with unerring precision, and without apparent jar, a limb waving wildly in the path of an approaching tornado.
He could drop twenty feet at a stretch from limb to limb in a rapid descent to the ground, or he could gain the utmost pinnacle of the loftiest tropical giant with ease and swiftness of a squirrel.
Though but ten years old he was fully as strong as the average man of thirty,
-Tarzan of the Apes
By the age of ten he was leaping 20 feet and was comparable to a grown man in strength. Of course he grew stronger and wiser as stated later in the books.
Here he is as a child besting the strongest and best fighter in his tribe. Just to give you an idea of how he was.
IMHO, Tarzan has the better physicals. Strength, durability, agility,etc.
The butt of a gun breaks over his body.
Easily lifts a giant over his head.
Evades the strikes of a Great Ape and works around him.
Dodges shots from multiple gunmen in close quarters.
While I know the Boss is strong and fast, he holds no candle to Tarzan in any of those departments. The only edge I give Snake is fighting prowess. It'll give him the edge, but ultimately Tarzan can evade and strike, break any hold, or just straight up over power him.
I'll go into more detail with the setting and gear later. Until then, your turn buddy.
