Did you get a chance to watch John Carter in theaters? We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the movie. If you didn't get a chance to watch it, here is your chance to not only win the movie but some other prizes as well.

Disney is offering a prize pack for TWO winners.

2377385-jc_prz.jpg

The prize pack includes:

  • (1) John Carter Blu-ray Hi-Def + DVD Combo Pack
  • (1) CD Soundtrack
  • (1) The Art of John Carter: A Visual Journey (SRP $50.00)
    Written by Josh Kushins, Introduction by Andrew Stanton, Afterword by Ryan Church

And, if I remember, I'll even throw in some Comic Vine stickers and buttons (if I have any left).

== TEASER ==

To enter: you just need to tell us what would you do if you were transported to Mars. Would you use your powers to fight in the war? Would you use them for personal gain? Would you do whatever you could to get back to Earth? The choice is yours.

  • Two winners will be chosen at random.
  • One entry per person.
  • And our lawyers insist the contest is open only to those in the United States. (Yes it's a bummer but our hands are tied by all the legal red tape).
  • The contest will begin immediately and end Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at midnight PT.

The contest unfortunately is only open to residents of the United States.

I'd be Mars's Superman. Plain and simple. Why come back to Earth when I could essentially be a superhero?

If I were transported to Mars I would definitely fight in the war, if only to get on the good side of Dejah ;) Then I would take my rightful place of ruler of Mars and jump around the entire planet stopping crime and takin names

If I were transported to Mars, I would use my powers to try and get back to Earth, but help people along the way like a Martian version of the Quantum Leap series...because it is only when you are helping others that you are truly happy.

I would hang out with Arnold in the Mars colony red light district and make plans to restore an oxygenated atmosphere to the planet.

Honestly, I think I'd have too much fun leaping around the mountain ranges and be completely oblivious to the war going on.

@Illuminatus said:

Ironically enough when I had the chance to interview talent for the movie I asked Dafoe what he thought Norman Osborn would do if he found himself on Mars with those powers. He just laughed and said I was too creative. Norman Osborn of Mars. I'd see that.

I would use my powers to stop all the blood shed. After a few years I would get the Tarks and The Red and Blue factions to all play nice and come back to earth and rule this planet in my name.

I would fight in the war for personal gain. and that personal gain would be finding a way back to Earth... Oh and gold. (Do they have gold?)

I know one thing I definitely would not do and that would be try and return to Earth. On Mars I would be for lack of a better word "superhuman". On Earth I would be just like everyone else. In the end I would probably fight to end the war.

It seems as though John Carter had some abilities like the golden age superman. Being the devout superman fan I am, I'd probably do the superman thing...cape...and...all...

If I was transported to mars, i would try to help the residence. I mean, I would try to go home, but in the mean time I would help people. I always like to help people, so if I need to fight in a war on mars of all places I would do so. Plus I would apparently get superpowers, which is an added bonus!

I would do to bring about peace, and No, I probably would not do much to return to Earth. Though, it would be nice to hop back and forth. Many things on Earth that don't appear on Mars

I would teach the Martians basketball and own them at slam dunk contests. I will return to Earth during off season to read comics, see movies, and play the latest video games.

I'd set up a farm for the thoats. With my enhanced agility I could train them and develop the strongest, fastest thoats and all of the martians would come to me to buy their thoats. I'd call my business "You're really getting my thoat".

If I were transported to Mars these days, knowing what I know about time displacement, I'd enjoy myself!

I would court both sides of the war, seeing who was really in the right. Then, betray whoever the a-hole side was, and fight for the side of good with my super-human powers! Knowing I could someday return to Earth, I wouldn't try to become royalty or anything, but rather serve the people whenever I could and advise who's in charge! And honestly, the Tharks need some respect on the red planet, so I'd probably crusade for interspecies equality.

I'd take control of the Thark tribes (they're a much cooler bunch anyway) and use their combined might to take over the planet. Afterward I would rule a unified Mars, but continue to build my military for the inevitable invasion of Earth. And Dejah would make an excellent 'spoils of war' trophy ;)

I would leave a message for Arnold Schwarzenegger, in English, telling him that there is indeed air on Mar's. So in the future when he gets here, I can ensure that he discovers this early and beats the bad guys.

This is Paul's secret prologue he hasn't told anybody about. I'll convince him one day to direct it though....

Assuming I was able to survive on Mars and had powers, I would use my powers for personal gain. The power will go to my head and I will abuse them unmercifully. Just being honest. I would probably start out helping people with the best intentions, but then I'll start abusing them in small ways which will eventually turn into bigger things...then ill be a full blown villain lol

If I was transported to Mars I would die due to a lack of oxygen and the temperature

Mars is hostile to life as we know it. Temperatures on Mars can dip down to -87 degrees C, and rarely get above 0 degrees C. But the biggest pressure is the lack of an atmosphere. The atmosphere of Mars is less than 1% the thickness of Earth’s atmosphere. Furthermore, it’s made up of 95% carbon dioxide – this is poisonous to breathe.

On Mars, I would find a Martian dog thing and become the Flash for awhile and ..... RULE BARSOOM!!! and take Martian Princess as my companion! Also Super Jump for no apparent reason, with John William's Superman March being played every time I do something awesomtacular!

At first I'd freak out that I'm now on Mars. Once I get over the initial shock I'd try to use my powers for good but most likely end up screwing it up by trying to fix what I thought needed to get fixed.

Simple. I'd do whatever I needed to do to get back home to Earth, but I wouldn't be against some Dejah Thoris on the side. Frankly, I don't know that I could adjust to a life where people don't look like people and they probably eat space slugs...I would miss hamburgers too much. Silly American, right? Such is my sin.

I would definitely at first have fun with my powers. Maybe on accident id destroy some landscapes and stuff like that. But after my fooling around, id help the locals of mars take back what is theirs. I wouldnt be a king or anything id be a citizen just like them, if they would have me.

Transported to Mars with superpowers. Hm. I wouldn't be able to resist helping. I'd settle the war, then I'd probably be content to settle with a nice Martian woman - Dejah Thoris here I come! (I could have spelled that inappropriately but resisted the urge).

I have a nice life here, but nothing to commit me to coming back and foregoing a spectacular, super powered existence on another planet!
