Spanish artist Guillem H. Poniluppi has created a series imagining what would happen if Darth Vader and his 501st legion of Stormtroopers went up against the Queen Alien and her Xenomorphs. Spoiler: it’s pretty epic.
The illustrations depict various battles – all bloody and brutal – pitting iconic science fiction characters against each other.
“The brave soldiers of the 501st Legion: Vader’s Fist, the pride of the Empire, was fighting in the remote planet LV-426 against the Space Cockroaches,” wrote Guillem.
“Every soldier from the 501 is braver than ten of those abominable creatures. But the beasts look like they are not giving up.”
I’m thinking about playing hooky to watch the new Star Wars. Anyone seen it yet? How was it? How does it rank amongst the other Star Wars??? NO SPOILERS PLEASE!
10. Kit Fisto
A powerful Jedi knight and one of the order’s greatest generals, Kit Fisto led the armies of the clones against the droid army—but where he becomes invincible is underwater. His underwater lightsaber skill and dexterity is legendary and a real beauty to gawk at.
General Grievous crossed paths with Kit Fisto once, and Fisto almost killed him—but Grievous captured Nahdar Vebb, Kit’s apprentice, and blackmailed him.
On his last evening alive, the great General and Legendary Swordmaster Kit Fisto and Mace Windu went to arrest Senator Palpatine—Darth Sidious.
Only against this Sith Lord did Kit Fisto perish.
Before Darth Bane the Sith had been a large cult containing numerous Sith Lords and apprentices. However after Bane created the “Rule of two” all of this changed. In previous Sith Empires in-fighting plagued the Dark council as varying Sith Lords jockeyed for power. Bane saw this as a weakness that needed to be eliminated if the Sith were ever to become powerful again. Thus he created a rule which stated that at any time there may only be a Master and their apprentice. He stated that “Two there should be; no more, no less. One to embody power, the other to crave it.” The apprentices lust for power would ensure that when they were strong enough in the way of the dark side they would kill their own master and then find their own apprentice to continue the cycle. He was solely responsible for changing the structure of the Sith order with a rule that later a thousand years until the rule of Darth Sidious.
