Podcast Stardust #87: Darth Vader 1 & 2

by Podcast Stardust

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss Greg Pak and Raffaele Ienco’s take on the Dark Lord of the Sith with a discussion of Darth Vader 1 & 2.

The third volume of Marvel’s Star Wars stories featuring Darth Vader have begun. The Dark Lord of the Sith is not pleased that Luke got away. Even worse, despite his strength, he perceives Luke as weak. Therefore, Vader vows to get revenge on those that stole Luke from him, hid him, and made him weak. The adventures starts now and we are ready to talk about it.

On this episode we discuss:

  • Darth Vader’s motivation for investigating Luke’s past,
  • Why Darth Vader wants revenge now,
  • What the Emperor thinks of Vader’s quest,
  • Sabé’s desire for revenge,
  • Why Sabé would work with Darth Vader,
  • Whether this is what Padmé would want this, and
  • Where this story is going.
