Alright besides, Doom there is one other villain who's my favorite. Well besides my avatar. But the older more machine than man. Plus just as twisted and evil.

6 Six Scans From Purge: The Hidden Blade, one of Splinter of the Mind's Eye, and two from the original Purge.

Sure there was still good in him, but that light didn't flicker for twenty years which he spent killing some Jedi. Purge showed what we all wanted to see. Vader in full costume killing a group of Jedi. But it also showcased his drawbacks and yet also his greatest strengths such as adapting to his environments on the fly:

But Vader's weakness is always his emotions. The fact that he's too cocky for his own good. Like in the third entry of the Purge Saga. Here Vader was sent to "heighten" Imperial Walker production at a base. The Imperials in that sector are having trouble with the locals and the moment Vader hears the word "Jedi" be uttered. He goes a hunting. He easily takes out a padawan, but finds out there's still his Master out there. After taming the local wildlife he finds him:

And what thread honoring Vader's villainy would be complete with him disposing of a Imperial officer due to failure:

On the bright side at least he didn't cut the dude's hand off.

Sigh. Vader. Always Epic. Except without the armor. We do not speak of those atrocities.

The historians believe that there was a time when Vader was a pansy-ass whiner.

But surely, there was never a time when Vader wasn't awesome... Right?

Only live action, the cartoon versions are actually not bad. You actually get to see a little gradual and plausible darkness inside him, as well as the charisma that Anakin should always have had to make him even a notional hero of the Jedi.

Also some of the comic versions were ok. Not as good as the cartoons, but not bad.

Yeah I hated the fall of Anakin in the movie, the books and even some of the cartoons are actually good portrayals of Anakin and his gradual fall to the darkside.

Ugh, it irks me that the best things to happen from episodes 1-3 are all EU.

His incarnation in "The Clone Wars" is currently pretty badass.

Actually, that whole series is made of win. I can't wait for season 3.

My only issue with the clone wars show right now, is it throws EU continuity out the door at times.

I want to make the argument that they don't count because they are expanded universe or whatnot, but then I have to throw the comic versions in there. I'm so torn!

Seriously though I was only thinking of the live action one. The trauma made me forget all about the animated one. (That's a believable reasoning, right?)

You really should add the creators credits to your tags, as the art on the Purge pages is extraordinary, whoever it is.

It doesn't really matter whether they have or not. They should be in there as a) It's just how things are done, b) helps if anyone else has put work of theirs on s_d before and c) When next they do something, we're already covered.
