Marvel's EMPIRE STRIKES BACK: Adventure. Excitement.

I wanted to post this for May the Fourth, AKA Star Wars Day. It is a page and a half from the "Treasury Edition" of Marvel's adaptation of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. And I'm posting it because I have a question about Yoda's original opinion of Luke Skywalker.

Foolkiller #1




"In a way, it’s kind of a “Dexter”-y plot set-up — you have an antihero who’s a vigilante, who enjoys getting into the minds of these people that, on face value, he would just shoot in the face. That’s the basic plot set-up. It’s really a fun set-up, and I get to do a lot with it. I think the main underlying sentiment that makes it a fun book to write is, besides Deadpool, a lot of these Punisher-type characters are very un-self-conscious and very serious. Greg is kind of affable at this point, because he gets this new lease on life. The whole premise is, he never really enjoyed it — he had a pretty horrible existence as the Foolkiller — so he’s offered a chance, in a way I won’t detail too much, to have this job as a shrink, and to have a sort of normal life. He wants that.

If anyone read my “X-Men: Worst X-Man Ever” miniseries, that was about being an outsider in the mutant community. For Greg, he’s kind of an outsider in the normal person community, because he was a friggin’ vigilante and he’s actually a lunatic. I think all of my work will probably have that theme. If you read any of my creator-owned stuff, there’s always some kind of fish out of water-ish scenario, because that’s my neurotic thing."

The other time last year a Jason Aaron-written book told tales in parallel.

It was two months after the same kind of thing'd been done in Doctor Strange.

It was The Mighty Thor #7, part two and the conclusion of " The Strongest Viking There Is ".

It was during Thor's second round with the titular dragon-blood-empowered pawn of Loki's.

The God of Mischief told the flashback to 896 A.D.

He told it characteristically. )
