I'd like you to give a good explanation of what you think is wrong with it.

Han even uses a light saber in the original trilogy when he's forced too. Have you seen the original trilogy, OP?

DarkHorse adapted Splinter of the Mind's Eye, which also featured Luke crossing blades with Vader between ANH &ESB.

They put the characters in a situation where a weapon that is supposed to be incredibly rare and requires a ton of innate skill and training to use is their only means of defense. I mean, sure, Leia piloted the Falcon a few times but that doesn't mean she can fly a goddamn X-Wing into the Death Star.

As for the other panel, well that's just bad dialogue and it re-establishes the Splinter of the Mind's Eye mistake of having Luke and Vader meet before Cloud City. If Vader has no idea who Luke is, he would just straight up murder him.

On top of that, they tell us they're sweeping away the Expanded Universe to get rid of all the silly shit and maintain a better continuity, but then they approve this shit.

He doesn't get away with anything though.

His family and way of life is destroyed, he's made a slave, then he's constantly haunted every night by his ancestors yelling at him to quit being a fuck and fulfill his destiny.

Oh, and once everyone figures out who he is he gets chased to the ends of the galaxy by everyone who either wants him to save them or they want him dead. Then he spends a good while being tortured so he can understand the "One Sith" better.

Is he a perfect hero? No, of course not. That wasn't the point of Legacy though. Legacy was about how normal people have to walk in their predecessor's footprints if they want to or not.

He's a junkie for it though. It's not like he was living on a beach.

In the issue where Han, Leia and Chewie have lightsabers, they're trying to free Luke from a Hutt who is obsessed with Jedi culture who has a bunch of lightsabers on display which R2 steals. As they come to rescue Luke an emp gets set off and all blasters are disabled. R2 gives them the lightsabers which still work and there you go. It's a bit contrived, but it's all explained. Han and Leia both spend the entire time talking about how bad they are with the sabers.

I don't mind the Vader page, but I can at least see the argument for not liking it. The lightsabers complaints are so clearly from people who didn't read the book

why does R2 work after an EMP
>>
>>77845223
I don't see the problem here, Anakin and Vader being separate persons have been danced around all the time up and until the point where Vader reveals in Empire that he is Anakin. Consider the guy being ambiguous on purpose, and it makes sense even in canon.
>>
>>77845762
>why does R2 work after an EMP

Or the lightsabers, for that matter.
>>

The problem is that it's contrived. It's a silly situation the characters should have never been put in.
>>
>>77845223
Ah, back when Star Wars canon was just like five dudes who didn't talk to each other.

Now we have a proper authority and a corporation to give us things like "an homage to Attack of the Clones set between Episodes IV and V".
>>
>>77845743
Ah shit, maybe I need to reread Legacy.

I distinctly remember him getting dragged back into the war kicking and screaming.

Reminder that in the EU, Vader and Luke fought before Empire as well except Vader was defeated by tripping and falling down a hole.

Yes, they too printed Star Wars comics. Star Wars sucks.
>>
>>77845689
It's more than a bit contrived m8. It's also incredibly convenient that the blasters were disabled while R2 and the lightsabers (which contain electronics) weren't.

Splinter of the Mind'a Eye, Leia also uses a lightsaber in that book and there is sexual tension between her and Luke in that book.

To be fair that book came out before ESB and it was one of the first ANH sequels that Lucas had entrusted to this sci fi writer in case ANH underperformed, but it didn't and ESB happened so SofME is like an alternate universe were Leia, Vader, and Luke aren't related.

>>77846702
And an excerpt f r om that book

The Princess pressed close against Luke. He tried to comfort her without appearing anxious, but as the darkness closed to a stygian blackness around them and the night sounds turned to sepulchral moans and hootings, his arm instinctively went around her shoulders. She didn’t object. It made him feel good to sit there like that, leaning against her and trying to ignore the damp ground beneath.
Something called out with an abyssal shrillness, startling Luke from his sleep. Nothing moved beyond the dying fire. With his free hand he tossed several shards of wood onto the embers, watched the fire blaze again.
Then he happened to glance down at his companion’s face. It was not the face of a Princess and a Senator or a leader of the Rebel Alliance, but instead that of a chilled child. Moistly parted in sleep, her lips seemed to beckon to him. He leaned closer, seeking refuge from the damp green and brown of the swamp in that hypnotic redness.
He hesitated, pulled back. She was an aristocrat and Rebel leader. For all he’d accomplished above Yavin, he was still only a pilot and, before that, a farmer’s nephew. Peasant and Princess, he mused disgustedly.
His assignment was to protect her. He wouldn’t abuse that trust, no matter his own hopeless hopes. He would defend against anything that leapt out of the darkness, crawled from the slime, dropped from the gnarled branches they walked under. He would do it out of respect and admiration and possibly out of the most powerful of emotions, unrequited love.
He would even defend her from himself, he determined tiredly. In five minutes he was fast asleep…

I think what actually annoys me most here is that the author has Han do the "I'd settle for a good blaster, haw haw, get it, because I said almost the same thing in the movie, get it yet, huh?" thing.

You don't need the force to make or use a lightsaber.
The reason Jedi/Sith use the creation of a Lightsaber as a right of initiation is because you need to be that powerful/trained in the Force before you can use one without lopping your own arms and legs off.
