— Arnold Schwarzenegger played "Conan the Barbarian" back in 1982, and now "Game of Thrones" hunk Jason Momoa is picking up the sword. But can he compete with the man who went on to become The Terminator and The Governator? Here's the tale of the tape.
Taller (about 6'4", compared to Schwarzenegger's disputed 6'2").
More facial expressions including a wider variety of glares and snarls.
Extensive wardrobe choices: strappy leather kilts, sashes, pants and wrist-bandages with unknown functions.
English is his first language. (Dothraki is his second.)
Awesomer hair, possibly thanks to creative man-extensions.
With Lisa Bonet, makes babies with effortlessly cool names like Nakoa-Wolfe Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.
Broader body, more likely to crush than outmaneuver.
Extreme proficiency at wide-mouthed yelling.
Really cool — if completely decorative — leather headband and crazy-weird fur bikini. Looked really rugged in 1982 but has aged into what the bachelorette party stripper shows up wearing.
Employed natural gift for word-mangling as a star-making, audience affection-building technique.
Successfully fought Grace Jones in the sequel. Even today Momoa might not be able to best her.
With soon-to-be-ex-wife Maria Shriver, had children with Kennedy-approved names. With housekeeper, made baby nobody knew about until recently.
Who'd win in a fight, these days? Probably Momoa.
Who's winning more tabloid headlines? Not even a question. Schwarzenegger.
