Tarsa. Tarsa was created by the Finnish author Lahja Talakivi and appeared in four novels in 1940 and 1941, beginning with Karhumies Tarsa.
Tarsa is a Superhuman Jungle Hero. As a young child Tarsa is orphaned in the northern reaches of Finland, above the Arctic Circle. But he is found by a female bear. She nurses and raises him, and her milk grants him greater-than-human strength. He acquires the usual Tarzan-type skills, albeit adapted for a snowy clime. As an adult “Tarsa the Bear Man” fights against the Soviets during the 1939-1940 Winter War.
