In the present paper we interpret the main character of Conan The Barbarian as a plausible representation of the nietzschean “superman”. We argue that Conan has qualities of the übermensch or superman as well of the “unhistorical” individual, defined by Friedrich Nietzsche. Based on the diverse texts of Nietzsche and his interpreters, we exhibit the moral behavior and the religious position of Conan and his nemesis Thulsa Doom inside the John Milius´s film. We also compare the film with another two characters of world cinematography (and imagery): Hercules and Mad Max. This comparison is made with the purpose of discern Milius´s efficiency to show the unique qualities of Conan as a nietzschean superman.
