Is Star Wars: Legacy really as bad as a lot of people try and make it out to be?

>Is Star Wars: Legacy really as bad as a lot of people try and make it out to be?

No. When is anything?
>>
>>77645625
I like you and your attitude.
>>
>>77645588
Imo in many ways it's what episode VII should be. I swear they stole ideas from legacy though. Hans great granddaughter owns a junkyard, a lightsaber shows up, black guy appears and they go on an adventure to defeat a masked darksider.
>>
>>77645687
>Hans great granddaughter owns a junkyard
There's no evidence that Rey is even related to the original cast. The fact that she has a British accent leads me to think she isn't.
>>
>>77645724
There is a good deal of hints that she is Luke's daughter. Especially the Japanese trailer plus the very first trailer with Luke's dialogue.
>>
>>77646024
Abrams loves playing with peoples expectations, especially after everybody guessed Cumberbatch was Khan. He's obviously been doing a lot of misdirection in a lot of the marketing.
>>
>>77645588
No. Legacy created an interesting world. The Galactic Alliance, a ruling triumvirate of Jedi-Republic-Remant and the Sith hanging out in the background as well as Imperial Knight and Jedi Knights fighting them. It's just Legacy v1's protagonist Cade really had a horrible arc that pretty much froze his development after his first confrontation with Darth Krayt and basically stalled the story until Legacy War.
>>
>>77646089
Given how easily people guessed that one, I don't think it's really that difficult to come out and say there is a high probability of he actually being his daughter.
>>
>>77645588
Krayt and Talon were retarded. Other than that it was alright.
>>
>>77646125
I'm just saying, it wouldn't surprise me if Rey wasn't a Skywalker, but rather a relative of Obi-Wan
>>
>>77645588
That picture looks dumb.
>>
>>77646297
How so?
>>
I liked the setting, especially the sith army conflicting with the empire. It was the characters that faltered
>>
>>77645588
It seemed to undo everything that came before it just to do it all over again.
>>
>>77646484
Oh, so just like The Force Awakens then.
>>
>>77645588
It was actually pretty good, apart from Cade being an insufferable edgelord.
Liked the worldbuilding.
>>
>>77646529
Except without all the forced 'inclusiveness', yes.
>>
>>77646563
>forced 'inclusiveness'
back to /pol/
>>
>>77645588
Great ideas and setting with some 'meh' characters. Krayt was ok and I did find the revelation of his past interesting, though after that he's kinda boring. I wish Wyyrlok had been the main villain at the end. The concept of a Sith having a lineage and thought he could have been much better as a villain overall.
>>
>>77646582
Back to tumblr. I can do that too.
>>
>>77646563
How is it "forced"? Also, there were plenty of female characters and non-white characters in Legacy.
>>
>>77645588
I don't like how big the old eu is and how its filled with so much shit that doesn't feel Star Wars-y. You had so much fiction that entirely came from one or two guys that had done general sci-fi before and didn't put that much thought into the aesthetic.

The new canon literature is going to have an opposite problem where its limited by serving the movies, but the point is I trust the movie folk more right now to do new Star Wars stuff. That old samurai-looking guy in the Rogue One shot looks more interesting than any of those Literally Whos in OP's pic.
>>
>>77646656
The fact that they 'have' to have them and make sure everyone likes them instead of waiting for people to see the movie first. Legacy had those characters but wasn't getting news attention because of them.
>>
>>77646563
>Except without all the forced 'inclusiveness', yes.

Yes like fact that you had a female Rey expy as the heroine of Legacy v2 along with a black Imperial knight as a supporting character. Or with Legacy v1 you had Syn and Blue, his alien girlfriend.
>>
>>77646746
All articles about a female and a black protagonist have all been made by outside sources, at no point has Disney said "look how progressive we are!"
>>
>>77646746
>'have' to have them
Or maybe it's because they wanted to cast black people and women?
>>
>>77646666
And here we see people who shit on things willy nilly and drive people like OP to ask his question: The guys who don't actually read the material
>>
>>77645588
I don't think so, but it's nothing special. I absolutely hated Cade from beginning to end, though.
>>
>>77646815
Yes, because it has to be a black person. It couldn't be a native American, or an Indian, or any other kind of race. I just feel sorry for the character because very few will like him and he'll eventually get the axe.
>>
>>77646929
>I just feel sorry for the character because very few will like him and he'll eventually get the axe.
Literally the only people I've seen complain about Finn are memeracists on 4chan and reddit.
>>
>>77646646
Yeah, except only one of you 2 is actually shitposting.
Hint: it's you.
>>
>>77647022
You should see some real reactions, then. Not the staged ones on Youtube. There's a lot of disappointment on people's faces and eventually the money Disney gets will tell. Between 'progressiveness' and profits, they'll know which one to choose.

>You should see some real reactions, then
I have never met a single person in real life who has expressed disappointment over there being a black lead in Star Wars. Probably because I don't live in the US South or Europe.
>>
>>77646929
Why wouldn't people like him? Boyega is a good actor and we know practically nothing about Finn's personality, maybe he's a really likeable guy.
>>
>>77645588
Needed less of the Yuuzhan Vong. Less as in none. None of them, anywhere, ever. They're by far the worst part of the EU.

Also, yet another "Jedi Order almost wiped out" plot. Ho fucking hum.
>>
Did Ostrander do some stuff in that title? it's probably good
>>
>>77646656
>How is it "forced"?
It's got a lot of mitochlorians.
>>
>>77647174
Jedi seem to range from unkillable gods to having the durability of tissue paper.
>>77647158
It's all about being able to relate to the character and being able to project yourself into his/her role in the story. The only people who are going to relate to Finn are the few handfuls of black boys who actually like Star Wars.
>>
>>77647154
>>77647094
I just want to say that outside of 4chan I haven't seen anybody talk bad about the new movie. It's absolutely nothing but progressives, and nostalgiablind fanboys talking about how great it's going to be and how Star Wars has /never/ had a prominent black or female character.
>>
>>77647325
>how Star Wars has /never/ had a prominent black or female character.
Wow.
>>
>>77645588
>that red sith lady thing
Yum Yum
>>
>>77647278
I've related to black characters before. It's about the situation they find themselves in and how they react to them, not their skin color.
>>
>>77647325
>how Star Wars has /never/ had a prominent black or female character
Literally never seen this. Whenever somebody is being a memeracist about Finn people will always bring up Lando and Mace.
>>
>>77647278
>the few handfuls of black boys who actually like Star Wars.
Star Wars is a normie franchise you idiot.
>>
I just want Thrawn
>>
>>77647418
I never said it was part of a secret club, but the majority of people who like Star Wars are White.

>>
>>77646344
Not him but let me jump in. Does that one guy have a blaster in one hand and a lightsaber in the other while wearing Darth Vaders pants with an earring in each ear AND a jheri curl? Yeah I think that one character tells me all I need to know about this comic.
>>
>>77646211
What if Obi Wan fucked that Mandalorian girl and had a baby? What if she's Qui Gon's great great (great?) granddaughter?
>>
>>77645588
are those guys supposed to be Red Skynauts?
>>
>>77647653
>thinking abrams cares about the prequels and tcw

He was pretty much was shown openly shitting on George Lucas in a video.
>>
>>77647394
Eh, Darth Maladi is better.
>>
>>77647584
You mean Cade? Well, he is the worst character by far.
Sadly, he's also the protagonist.
>>
>>77647901
>He was pretty much was shown openly shitting on George Lucas in a video.
Source?
>>
>>77647653
>What if Obi Wan fucked that Mandalorian girl and had a baby?
If that had happened Rey would need to be older than Luke and Leia. Do people just not consider the timeframe when they say stuff like this?
>>
It's good because of the setting, but the main character ruins it
>>
>>77647481
Go back to /tv/
>>
>>77647584
It doesn't though. Why don't people actually read comics anymore before talking shit? Is it a teenage thing?
>>
>>77648299
Cade is pretty awful, to be fair
>>
Did Darth Caedus get any comics? I thought that was a cool story line back when I used to keep up with the books.
>>
>>77648498
To be fair a lot of Skywalkers males are terrible. Look at Darth Caedus or Prequel AOTC Anakin.
>>
>>77648708
>Did Darth Caedus get any comics? I thought that was a cool story line back when I used to keep up with the books.

No DH and Del rey were not talking to each during that time because of issue going back to NJO. If they were Caedus and Krayt probably would have been the same character.
>>
>>77648753
Makes sense. I think I only read the first volume of Legacy because I thought Caedus would be the villain and didn't read any more because I was disappointed with what I got.
>>
>>77647174
> Yuuzhan Vong the worst
I am truly glad you never read the bug novels. Those three were as bad as the 197 Vong turds combined.
>>
>>77648719
3 out of 6/7 if you count Vader as separate from pre-fall Anakin ain't bad
>>
>>77645588

I've pretty much only heard good things about Legacy. Volume 1, anyway - volume 2 never got any kind of reaction at all.
>>
Is legacy even canon? Also where is my recommend star wars reading list?
>>
>>77650460
>Is legacy even canon?
Used to be, not anymore.
>>
>>77645588
Dammit, i would hit a Twilek chick with a crowbar so damnd hard
>>
>>77646560
Even parts of Cade's edgelording were interesting, namely Skywalker force ghosts telling him to stop, especially Anakin's whole "The Dark Side: Not even once" talk.
>>
>>77650633
Geez man, that's pretty violent. What'd they ever do to you?

You know who was hot? Delilah Blue.

Zeltrons in general, Blue had some really cute pout faces.

I've only seen the legacy art and it looks like a lot of it went back to the pulpy influence of the original trilogy, aside from some of the Sith designs. Can you guys confirm?

Are they Tamaranians of the Star Wars Universe?
...are they prominent in any specific volume/issues? Cause I am largely turned on right now.

pffffft... theres nothing better than a blue Twilek chick, as i said i would hit on on any time
>>
>>77650811
A major villain in the KOTOR comics is a Zeltron
>>
>>77650511
For a given value of "used to"
Nothing not in the movie was ever canon.
>>
>>77648826>>77650811
Empaths that thrive on making sentients happy. In any way they can, Blue is concidered an odd one for being in a monogamous relationship
>>
>>77651594
...and now they are erased from Star Wars lore?
>>
>>77651619
Nah, they're canon. We don't know much about them so they may be different from EU Zeltrons but they're definitely canon.
>>
>>77651619
I think there was one in one of the new books
>>
>>77651619
>>77651864
>>77651969
A male Padawan Zeltron was mentioned in A New Dawn.
>>
>>77652312
>male Zeltron
Why even bother?
>>
EU>>>Disney Wars.

Disney Wars canon adds nothing and is focused solely on pandering to nostalgic OT manchildren.
>>
>>77645588
Legacy was fantastic. Fuck the haters.
>>
>>77650811
They are in the very original Marvel SW comics. But also Kotor and Legacy.
>>
>>77653639
Well, yeah, that's all Marvel is these days. They barely branch off of their big heroes and just make legacies for those same big heroes. They're scared shitless to experiment with their Star Wars stuff.
>>
I liked it. But then, I liked the Yuuzhan Vong, and original Darth Bane (before he went Asian-mode), and a lot of other EU stuff.

But yeah the books went to unbearable-shit mode after the Vong saga.

>nostalgic OT manchildren
Wait, are OT fans manchildren or normies? You guys are never consistent with these accusations.
>>
>>77645588
Like Kotor, it would have worked out better as its own alternate universe instead.
>>
>>77656099
It more or less was it's own universe. Nobody did anything with it until Ania's book came out at the last second.
>>
>>77653711
>>77653639
I imagine they're not allowed to do very much, since the movies are in the process of being written and filmed.

But since it's Disney and we're going to get a Star Wars movie every year until the sun explodes, maybe they'll never do anything with it.
>>
>>77656099
Well now it is
>>
I enjoyed Legacy. It's probably dated even now as it modernised the Star Wars aesthetic with trends of its time (mid to late 00s) with tattoos, edge etc.
>>
>>77656344
What?
>>
Never read any Star Wars comics. Is this one worth reading or are there better ones?
>>
>>77656672
I loved Legacy, but that's just me. Tales of the Jedi is universally liked, and Crimson Empire (the first one) is good too.

"Worth reading" and "better" are completely subjective. It's entirely up to you.

I loved Legacy and I love plenty of Star Wars comics. So you should read them and decide for yourself.
