- Since there is no Conan respect thread, I decided to make one

- Here are some of Conan's best feats, they are all from Dark Horse Conan

New feat, here Conan easily lifts man in the air and snaps his neck, to make this even more impressive prior to this Conan was in the swamps eating only rats and drinking rain and having fever and hallucinations.

Fact: I have more Conan titles in my comic book collection than any superhero.

I didn't know this thread existed intil just now. It's about time. Conan is my absolute favorite character. To anyone who only knows him from the comics, READ THE ORIGINAL STORIES by Robert E. Howard. They're amazing. For all the slobbering praise characters like Batman & Wolverine get...well...people need to recognize that characters like that are only pale imitations of the original. Most people on comics forums don't really know anything about the character, and it's a shame. Conan's awesome.

Conan runs faster than wild dog, after he eats it he managed to kill 4 soldiers with ease. In one scan he threw the man several feet at his friend, to show how badass he is, he even says the man to say hello to his Stygian gods and the main god of the Stygians is Elder god Set.

Here Conan managed to kill 15 or more armed killers that wanted to murder him. He is only 17 years old here and he said that he has followed the deer through the autumn woods without crushing the leaf, that implies some serious skill in the woods.

@El_Nastro: Agreed on all points! Although Batman and Wolverine are both awesome too!

Conan's the original black-haired, blue-eyed, muscular, hard-drinkin', blade-wielding, berserker raging badass. (Sorry Wolverine)

Me too. Nearly the entire run of Savage Sword and up to date on the tpb for the DH series. Have a few sinle goodies I have collected over the years as well.

A gripe: Conan is waaaaay to low on the recent Comicvine Top 100 Fantasy and SciFi List

Red Sonja wasn't even on it or the runner's up list. Dubious.

I liked some of the issues and my favorite was #6, I hate the art especially with Vasilis Lolos and Cimmeria story arc was really bad, but hopefully the art will be better starting with issue #12.

I just received word that Tim Truman,Tomas Giorello, and Jose Villarubia are signed on for Dark Horse's adaptation of "Wolves Beyond the Border"! If this Conan team can remain on the King Conan series of books for the forseeable future we should get some great stories!

Capabilities

PHYSICAL 

STRENGTH

ENDURANCE

WILLPOWER AND PSYCHIC RESISTANCE

REFLEXES

Classifying "faster than the eye can follow" as FTE, because most definitions of "follow" would just mean "comprehend" or "observe", or, if it means "track the movement", doing so with speed Requires one to move essentially FTE

So yeah, now that we got that out of the way, some dodging n stuff

SPEED/AGILITY

SENSES AND AWARENESS

SKILLS AND INTELLECT 

A lot of people say Conan has no skill. This is false. He often uses very simple, instinctive styles, but he has Spent some time perfecting his skills in Martial Arts

It's also worth noting he has a lot of experience fighting, going way back to when he was young, as he fought a wolf and killed it with his baby teeth

STRIKING

GRAPPLING

KNIVES

SPEARS

ROCKS

AXES

BOWS AND ARROWS

SWORDS

INTELLIGENCE

STEALTH

Conan can sneak up on animals and Picts, and has a few feats to back that shit up

@super_soldierxii - Here is the full list.
