Star Wars Insider #113

Posted By TFN on October 31, 2009



Issue #113 of Star Wars Insider has just hit the street, and the central theme to this issue is Sith, Sith, and more Sith.

StarWars.com has provided an excerpt written by Daniel Wallace from this issue that focuses on the story of "Mr. Dual Persona" himself - Chancellor Palpatine.

"Little is known about the man who was inarguably the most important political figure of the last thousand years. By design, all records of Palpatine's early life have been purged from public records, and historians are forced to judge the man by the impact of his creations. No figure created more grandiose works than the Galactic Emperor.

Palpatine is believed to have been born on Naboo, a quiet Mid-Rim world in the Chommell sector. Apparently never trained by the Jedi despite his Force sensitivity, Palpatine instead fell under the influence of a Sith Lord, Darth Plagueis. Under the Rule of Two -- one master, one apprentice -- Plagueis sought to continue the tradition through Palpatine."



Click HERE for the rest of the excerpt, and keep your eyes peeled for issue #113 at your local newsstand/comic shop.

UPDATE: Kristen from Titan Magazines sends us the following update regarding the Fan Vote that was held back in July for the #1 Star Wars villain:


Darth Vader Named Best Star Wars Villain

The imperious heavy-breathing baddie Darth Vader has beat out stiff competition to be named Best Star Wars Villain by readers of Totalscifionline.com and Star Wars Insider.

The Dark Lord of the Sith is played by David Prowse and voiced by James Earl Jones. His vast array of evil deeds include slicing off the hand of his own son, choking his staff to death, and ordering the destruction of Alderaan, though he does eventually save Luke from the wrinkled hands of Emperor Palpatine in Return of the Jedi.

The despicable Palpatine (also known as Darth Sidious) was voted into second place, while iconic bounty hunter Boba Fett received the third highest amount of votes.

The new villains-themed issue of Titan Publishing's Star Wars Insider will be released on November 3, 2009 (US) and November 19, 2009 (UK).
