Star Wars fans, a group colloquially known as Starbronies, are famous for taking things extremely personally. What Star Wars fan hasn't had their life completely ruined by a Star Wars film that doesn't fit their expectations of what a Star Wars film should be? From Return of the Jedi to the Prequels to Force Awakens to Last Jedi to Rise of Skywalker, each subsequent Star Wars film finds a brand new segment of the franchise's fandom to enrage, seemingly worse than the previous film that people were enraged by. But has anyone ever considered that the characters might feel the same way?
Just check out this preview of Star Wars: Darth Vader #1 from Marvel Comics, in which the titular Vader visits his old home and is totally traumatized by scenes from the Prequels.
Can you imagine how mad Darth Vader would be today if he had lived to see the third trilogy? Worse than sand, IMO.
Star Wars: Darth Vader #1 hits stores on February 5th.

"JOIN ME, AND TOGETHER, WE CAN RULE THE GALAXY AS FATHER AND SON!"
THE TRAGEDY OF DARTH VADER CONTINUES!
In the shattering climax of The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader infamously reveals his true relationship to Luke Skywalker and invites his son to rule the galaxy at his side. But Luke refuses — plunging into the abyss beneath Cloud City rather than turn to the Dark Side. We all remember Luke's utter horror in this life-altering moment. But what about Vader? In this new epic chapter in the Darth Vader saga, the dark lord grapples with Luke's unthinkable refusal and embarks on a bloody mission of rage-filled revenge against everything and everyone who had a hand in hiding and corrupting his only son. But even as he uncovers the secrets of Luke's origins, Vader must face shocking new challenges from his own dark past.
Writer Greg Pak and artist Raffaele Ienco unleash Darth Vader on his dark quest of vengeance and discovery this February! With covers by InHyuk Lee!
