I never really thought about where the Conan stories were set. He just seemed to float anywhere from Rome to the Middle Ages and from the Tropics to Northern Europe. The names were familiar, sure, but in sort of the same way that some movies are “inspired by true events”. Truth be told, my conception of Conan was shaped by the Frank Frazetta book covers more than anything else. Those have Conan using pseudo-Viking weaponry – frequently including a horned helmet – and fighting bare chested in all climes, including in the snow.
Re rape: I have no doubt that, while Conan is sometimes shown being kind, rape and pillage was a big part of his lifestyle. Of note, there’s a scene in the first Schwarzenegger Conan movie where he is put in a cage with a woman and literally jumps her. If not rape, that’s at least massively non-consensual. (It’s also played for a laugh, which is disturbing.)
Other than that, not much to say, although I did appreciate that you called out the absurdity of him being so grievously wounded and then going Super Siyan. As a kid, that part was the fun part.
FWIW: If you think about it, the variety of types of combat that Conan survives gets ridiculous. A while back, I asked HEMA expert Matt Easton of the Scholagladiatoria channel what, if any, set of kit might give him a reasonable chance of survival. He was kind enough to consider the question.
