    Okay, I'm actually annoying myself with how much bitching I'm doing here, but it needed doing. I fell asleep twice my first time reading through "Fallen Angels" #1, and a third time on the second reading. That really should be enough of a review for the issue, but I'll say more because it's...

    Disillusionment with corrupt political systems and increasingly impotent judiciary? :awesome: Maul wasn't all that critical to the long-term plan. Okay, but the need for it doesn't change the intended purpose of the original. You're sort of implying that the creation of the second Death Star...

    @Clement Rage That really doesn't sound very different from what I thought I've been proposing all along. Obviously you start small, doing some Jedi mind trickery on those slavers who aren't Force-resistant, to get the ball rolling. Learn how to locate and disable transmitters, free who can be...

    Oh, right, I forgot to mention that mine came. XD They're awesome!

    I find him really entertaining in everything he's in, so I can't help you with that. :monster:

    @Roger I guess I was unclear. I was responding to the argument that trying to free the slaves shouldn't be attempted because their slavers may kill them in a "if I go down, they all go down" kind of move, in the event mind tricks don't work on them to prevent it. Palpatine intended precisely...

    Clearly not the attachments thing at any rate. =P Well, we're in full agreement on almost all of this, especially that last sentence. Where we differ is that I don't believe they did the best they could. Certainly you grow up and realize it's more complicated than that, such that it won't...

    The project with Tom Holland as Nate is still going forward, but Mark Wahlberg is also coming back as Sully.

    @Obsidian Fire @Roger I think there's truth to both your assessments. Anakin was arguably predisposed to the outcome that came down, but the Jedi Order's ways in general and handling of him specifically didn't help avoid that. One might say they shouldn't have given him special treatment...

    I am seriously late on getting out my review of "Excalibur" #1. I've had most of it written for over a week, but just haven't taken the time to finish with formatting it. So I now find myself needing to put out a review for three books, as "New Mutants" #1 and "X-Force" #1 came out last week...

    But what if I already walked away from the PT with a low opinion of the Jedi Order back in 2005? It only makes him look better by comparison in the sense that he is elevated somewhat from where he was before. The rest of the order remain where they have been. No denigrating is needed for the...

    One thing I should acknowledge that I don't think I have is that, yes, the Resistance does very much feel different from the Rebellion in some difficult-to-articulate fashion. I think that's just an unavoidable consequence, though, of certain narrative decisions involving key characters also...

    "And then pretty much leaves it at that." The council gives him intense scrutiny, but doesn't bother to find out anything about him? That's not going to convince me they were more competent in these matters. Lars purchased her. Slavery wasn't ended. Yes? Are you advocating for ignoring...

    You asked what I feel is being paid off. I'd like to think of it more as a legitimate analysis of what we've seen so far and where it's all heading than headcanon ... but I suppose it is technically that right now. We now know Qui-Gon had been trying to get the Order to address slavery for...

    Well, no. Perhaps I failed to be clear, but any suggestion like that was at least intended to be considered through a lens of when it would be sound tactically and time permitting. Fair enough. Wasn't it this very willingness to be reduced to leashed attack dogs that put them in the position...
