Why were jungle heroes so important in the early 20th Century?

I can’t possibly be more excited about Captain America: Civil War. One of the major reasons is that it will be the movie debut of one of my favorite Avengers, if not my favorite Avenger: the Black Panther, a jungle king hero in the style of Tarzan, who is interesting because he combines the usual tradition of the jungle hero with scifi elements. For instance, when going on a jungle expedition, his load bearing Askari porters are all secretly robots, which he uses to keep his equipment and panther costume. The Black Panther was added to the Avengers because writer Roy Thomas was a huge Tarzan fan and wanted a Tarzan type hero on the team. But what’s interesting is how rare jungle heroes are now, compared to how huge they were in the early 20th Century.  

Why were jungle heroes such a big thing in the early 20th Century?

There were several reasons: 

There was a belief that two major trends of the early 20th Century, urban living and repetitive industrial jobs, stole men’s masculinity, and only by a return to the primal wilderness could we get it back. 

The two figures that represented manliness the most in this era were Theodore Roosevelt (who founded the National Parks system) and Tarzan. This belief started to express itself in many other ways. For instance, this was also the age that the Boy Scouts were founded, and boys started to go to summer camps.

The average person didn’t travel, so wilderness settings were unfathomably exotic. Try to imagine a world with no air travel, where transatlantic commercial flights didn’t exist until 1939. In 1920, a ship could take 6 days to travel from New York to Paris. If travel takes that long, it means that, usually, ordinary people didn’t do it. Could YOU take two weeks off your job just to head to Paris and come back? It’s pretty accurate to say that the average Westerner, before 1940, never traveled internationally for pleasure. 

Here’s a serious question many people might not have considered: in today’s world, why do we love space travel? Because it’s unusual, outside of the ordinary world outside of our windows, and because anything can happen there. For the same reason, people who never traveled thought of the jungle, which might as well be the surface of the Moon.

The public started to have a lot of contact with exotic animals for the first time. Let me be clear: Zoos were not new in the early 20th Century. Zoos have been around since Roman times and Ancient China. But zoos open to the public absolutely were new. The average person on the street having the leisure time to visit a zoo, that was new. A huge mass of people living in large cities where zoos existed was also something that was new. These three factors combined made the public zoo-mad. If you ever watch a 1920s-1940s movie, notice how much time people spend in zoos on dates and for other events.

All that said, it doesn’t surprise me that jungle heroes would start to make a comeback in 2016. Not only do we have the Black Panther in Marvel, there’s also a Jungle Book movie, we also have a big budget Tarzan film. If there’s a defining spirit of our age, it’s anxiety over the ability to make a living. It’s now true that automation has finally reached a point where more jobs are lost due to machinery than will be regained in tech jobs, a trend that every sign shows will continue forever, resulting in stagnant wages and a gig economy of zero-stability part time jobs. Even driving will be replaced by self-driving cars and trucks eventually. If you define masculinity, and your worth as a man, by self-sufficiency and the ability to take care of your family, something that is gradually being eroded, it’s easy to see why the return of jungle heroes would have appeal. 

Ladies of PoI Art/Fic Challenge

To celebrate Person of Interest’s many incredible ladies, we decided to hold an ongoing challenge for all artists and writers of the fandom. 

While we adore all the badass ladies that the PoI writers have been throwing our way recently - and let’s admit, since the beginning of the show the ladies have been freaking awesome - there is so little we know about them. What does Zoe Morgan do when she’s not busy being the coolest? Was Joss Carter a nerd when she was a kid? Is Iris Campbell secretly a robot assassin? Who knows?

The idea behind this challenge is to rectify that lack of stories about our fantastic ladies by creating more and more stories, headcanons and art about them. Let’s celebrate their diversity - be it queer, women of color, coming from rich or poor backgrounds… Let’s all flood our dashes and the PoI AO3 tags with stories and images of the best ladies on TV.

To join us in this challenge, it’s really simple. Pick a table of prompts and a character, send us an ask to claim it as your own, and write, draw, gif, etc!
