Ultimate Tarzan!

The best Tarzan isn't the one that we always get in endless reboots, jumping on an elephant's back and yodeling like a loon, taking down greedy and sadistic men with surprising viciousness.

The best Tarzan is the one that Philip Jose Farmer takes to the natural endpoint, where Tarzan is some kind of immortal time traveling jungle god,  his animal growls reverberating across deep time, hyped up on super science and red meat and living forever as a pure creature of power. He's last seen heading off in a space yacht into the great expanse of the universe with Jane, and will probably still be there at the end of time.
