The My Little Pony Killer: Is it bad that the first fictional character I thought of was Superman?


Krypton had a red sun, not twin suns.

Having majored in political science, I feel I'd be a better science editor for the Fox News website.

Two inner suns would be totally meh as far as I'm concerned. The system described in TFA has two suns closer than our sun and Mercery, which we can almost never see. Such a setup would be almost indiscernible from what we have here. That said, if our Jupiter was a sun...now THAT would be cool.

Or better yet, if Earth was a moon of a Jovian planet, a la the planet in Predators. Holy cow!

Nem Wan: Since the prequels established Vader knew the address there, I suppose it's been retconned that he personally ordered the Lars' execution over the radio or something. It makes more sense that it was just the stormtroopers being ruthless and that Vader didn't know till later, if ever.

Yeah, I was always bothered by that. I just supposed lucas wanted to make the point that storm troopers are evil, but to have them consistently act in that fashion for the rest of the movies would have cut into his toy sales..

So...Leia is a dude?

Does that make the kiss between her him and Luke more awkward?

Poor Aunt Beru. Owen? That farkwad had it coming if you ask me (which you didn't).

Humble farmer on a dull, hardscrabble planet.
Shelters an innocent boy, for decades, from literally the most powerful and evil men in the galaxy.
Pays for it with his life.
What a jerk.

/do you feel bad now?
