When you come across a guy like this :

'"So why do you think you’re John Carter?" I asked him.

"Because I am."

"Why not Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon–or the Scarlet Pimpernel for that matter?"

"Why aren’t you Doc Savage or the Shadow?" he replied. "Or James Bond for that matter?"

"I never claimed to be a fictional character," I said.

"Neither did I. I am John Carter, formerly of Virginia, and I am trying to return to my princess."

"Stark naked in a blizzard?"

"My clothes do not survive the transition, and I am not responsible for the weather," he said. '

You might think he is nuts. Later events leave you doubts.
