Silver Surfer Vs. Darth Vader

Continuing from yesterday's tale, we have a story that also hearkens back to STF #40, in which Vader met Galactus.  Who says this isn't the swingin' Super-Team age of cohesive continuity?

I think one of the biggest challenges for JJ Abrams' new Star Wars installment will be to find a villain as iconic as Darth Vader. It's going to be hard to top that voice, appearance and air of mystery.  Even though he wasn't a comic book character, he was pretty much like a super-villain from the comics for me - he had a costume complete with helmet, gloves and cape, powers and even a secret identity.  No wonder I was so fascinated by him as a kid.

Wow! That is an awesome cover!

It should be interesting to see what story J. J. Abrams tells. This isn't a "reboot" of an existing franchise, this is a full-on relaunch. This is more a revival. After Jedi, Star Wars went back to books and comics. Jedi was a pretty clear cut The End. So, it will definitely be interesting to see what new direction he takes the franchise in. The mark he makes will be long-lasting.

So, really, no pressure at all then.

When it comes to heavyweight villains, Ben Solo was definitely a Kylo-ton, at least. ;-)
