"There’s also a lot of Uncanny X-Men to Jason [Aaron]’s Wolverine & The X-men. Good guys and bad guys, each telling their own story, each readable by themselves, each feeding into one another." - Kieron Gillen on collaborating with the main Star Wars title

There were a few too many "In a very special episode of Star Wars" moments (as Aphra learns about the importance of friendship and Leia learns a valuable lesson about not-micromanaging her friends), plus I'm not quite sure that this is the best point in his character narrative to do a "Dark Luke" story, since he's yet to be shown the Dark Side properly, and you'd think this might be relevant experience for that, but this still managed to be a fun little crossover with plenty of action and a new villain you can hiss at with a clear conscience.

It's also nice to see that Luke is generally shown to be, well, likeable. That he's a friendly, outgoing person given half a chance, and even Aphra warms to him.

Though their twin status only applies in retrospect it's interesting to compare that whilst everyone respects the hell out of Leia (which is more relevant for her role), people seem to LIKE Luke. (They'll presumably respect him later when he's more of a Jedi, but I wonder if they'll like him as much. This Luke you'd go for a drink with, Jedi Luke... probably not so much)

I'm less convinced by Aphra feeling that bad about betraying him, it's sort of her thing, but it's worth it for Triple-Zero rubbing her nose in it like that! :)

It doesn't have to be true, saying it is just has to bug her ^^

Also he's surprisingly emotionally aware for an evil killer droid.

True, but I think it IS true, she genuinely seems to like Luke (based on her interactions in this arc) either because of, or in spite of, him being a weird combination of almost painfully naive small-town, fluffy-haired farm-boy from the arse end of a a hell planet, a hero of the rebellion, staunch ally when he didn't need to be, AND an aspiring Jedi who is therefor useful to her.

If she didn't put some weight in his opinion, she wouldn't be so irked by him.

And yes, 0-0-0 actually speaking of ANY human as having positive qualities which don't involve inflicting pain or death (Which are positive values from his POV), even if it is just to hack Aphra off, is very unusual.

If we were to add Anakin into the mix, I think you could say everyone (with some exceptions, of course) admired him. You have Obi-wan saying he was a great pilot, Ahsoka recalling him as an amazing teacher, etc.

Forgive me, but why are we mentioning Anakin in this context? (There's probably a valid reason but I'm blanking on it)

Because Anakin is their father so i think it is valid to include him in the reading.
Anakin: admired by people
Leia: respected by people
Luke: liked by people

Oh, fair enough, but then I think you have to add Padme, who was loved by people.

I was actually going to say "padme: who?" as a joke. but that actually fits pretty well the interpretation that, character-wise, Luke is like Padme while Leia is Anakin.

That's a fanon I sort of subscribe to. They started in similar points to their parents and but ultimately embraced their other parent's destiny.

Leia started as a princess and became a general.

Luke started as desert planet farmboy and became a Jedi Knight, traditionally a peacekeeper.
