Jason Bourne is the main character of a successful book series and a successful movie series. However the thing is the two versions both have similarity along with differences. The point of this thread is to compare and contrast the two to give a look at the character as a whole. However due to reasons of author change after the third book and the new author decided to try to emulate the movies in the direction Bourne went for the purpose of this article we will cover all the Bourne movies and only the first three Bourne books. Similarities:
They are both named Jason Bourne
They both marry a woman named Marie
Both found in the waters near France
Both suffered amnesia after Gun wounds
Both belong to a US Government organization known as Treadstone
Both took the name Jason Bourne as a alternate Identity with the real being David Webb
Both trained master assassins
In the books Jason Bourne was a Vietnam war veteran while in the movies he was station in the middle east
Marie survives longer in the books as in the books she survives the trilogy while in the movies she is killed in the second movie.
Bourne was the leader of a group of soldiers who went and did things off the record in Vietnam. The group was called Medusa.
Bourne was recruited into Medusa after his Friend Alex Conklin found him after his family was killed in a air strike.
Bourne wasn't a true assassin in the books he merely took credit for the kills of others to draw out Carlos the Jackal
Bourne never paid Marie to drive him in the books he actually kidnapped her
In the books Bourne turned himself into the government early on and was framed for the murder of his brother by the Jackal afterwards
Bourne in the books is on "friendly terms" in the books where they sometimes use him in emergencies
Bourne can't speak russian in the books
In the books by the time Ultimatum takes place Bourne is in his 60s while in the movie version in his 30s till the newest version where is is about 50 something
Bourne is far deadlier in the books actually daring to storm into a Marine base because he thought something happened to his wife.
In the books Bourne suffers dissociative personality disorder where the Webb and Bourne identities fight for control. Eventually they create a balance with the other. However there is a much more dangerous identity known as Cain who represents the Bourne of Voetnam. This identity in bloodthirsty and goal driven. He won't stop till his goals are reached even at the cost of death. Fortunately this identity was "killed" and was never seen after it's one appearance in Supremacy.
This is a work in progress I will finish more at a later date.
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.

Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
