I'm assuming novel vs story and movie vs movie?

I'm no expert and it's years since I read LOTR but isn't Aragorn effectively superhuman in the novel?

Agreed that movie Aragorn loses to Conan, although he was one tough motherfucker

Yeah, he's got the blood of a race of people with enhanced stats and a 200 year lifespan.  I can't really remember the details from back when I was into LoTR and researched this stuff, and it is surprisingly hard to unravel via wiki.  Near as I can tell he's descended from the first or second race of men created by the elder gods/angels, which were later "increased in body and mind" by a god/angel.

Not to be outdone, movie Aragorn can one-hand toss Gimli and make it look easy.

Conan mistakes Aragorn for a tall dwarf woman.

Not sure about easy ... how much does Gimli weigh anyway and how hard did Aragorn toss him (*snigger*)?

I'd guess Gimli could've been as much as 200lbs in his armour.

There was that beastly deflection of Lurtz' thrown knife, which was even more impressive because Viggo Morgenstein did it for real

I'd say Gimli was about 200 pounds when you factor in his stoutness, his armor, and his weapons, yeah.

Looking back at the scene, he reaches down to Gimli with one hand but when it cuts to the actual throw, it looks like he might've used both hands.  Either way, it's a decent toss.  Conan could easily do the same but I think it's worth pointing out.

Aragorn is line of the Dunedin or something like that.

He’s supposed to be 6’6 and moderately low end superhuman. (Like how Batman would be I the real world). I think.

Book Aragon dismisses book Conan out of hand

His kill count by the time he becomes King is insane, and that's fighting orcs in numbers Conan couldn't touch on his best day
