Darth Vader Finale Confirms Anakin Skywalker’s “Dad”
Looks like the long standing rumor has officially been confirmed as canon in last week’s Darth Vader # 25 by writer Charles Soule and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli.
In this week’s issue, Darth Vader’s soul goes on a trip to the not-so-afterlife where he meets the people in his past both good and bad that shaped his life in one form or another.
And then comes the most crucial part, finding out his parentage. We all know that there was no father per se when Shmi Skywalker conceived Anakin. She let that fact known when Qui Gon Jinn showed interest in taking the boy with him to train under the Jedi order.
Then in Episode III, Darth Sidious, going around as Chancellor Palpatine told Anakin the story of Darth Plagueis the Wise who found a way to cheat death and create life…
In Darth Vader # 25, Vader finds out through some sort of vision who his “father” is.
That bastard Palpatine orchestrated everything for the Sith to finally one-up the Jedi and rule the galaxy. Palpatine used what he learned from Darth Plagueis and used it to create a weapon thst would tip the balance towards the Sith…
And his name was Anakin Skywalker.
Lets look at that panel one more time.
Darth Vader # 25 is out now in your local comic shop. We highly recommend this title folks.
