Re: Star Wars VII - The Force Awakens

Yes, I know. I don't like that. As much as Star Wars is already not based in science, a laser sword that flickers with flame is that much more not based in science. Star Wars is Fantasy. Sayng something in it is not based in science is sort of missing the forest for the trees. These are wizards fig...

Back when Jesse Plemmons was in the lead for the character it was rumored he'd be Luke's son. But then Boyega swooped in. So who knows.

If the rumors about Luke's son are true, and John Boyega being the only Jedi are true, here's hoping Boyega is Luke's son. Which would be fantastic because Boyaga is great.

Stephanie's run as Batgirl was awesome and the book was something very different for DC. I think it's a damn shame they went back to Babs, which stripped the DCverse of a really cool disabled character.
