Star Wars and Star-Lord


It's been cool to see the expansion of some Star Wars locations, first on The Mandalorian, and now on The Book of Boba Fett.  It's been cool to hear the history of Tatooine (once a water planet?) and see the interactions of the different tribes and factions that call it their home. I look forward to finding out if Fett can tame his territory through respect rather than fear as those before him have.

Now that Disney owns both the Marvel and Star Wars franchises, this one could happen rather easily.

Or cross-overs with Disney itself: how about Maleficent vs. Doctor Strange?

By the same token, Ross; since Luke, Leia, and Starlord are technically all Marvel characters, shouldn't they have been balanced out with a DC (or even some indie-pub) character? As per your usual preference?

@Anonymous: maybe someday he'll do a Deadpool/GL Hal Jordan mash-up (with Ryan Reynolds photo-captures) just for you.

Ross said...

As long as its a team up that should have happened but hasn't, it fits!

I think we can also look forward to seeing some expansions of established Star Wars locales on Ahsoka, The Bad Batch, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and other upcoming series. The movies have given us great breadth; the series are giving us more depth.

Now, speaking of photo-capture covers, I think we could get one with Sophia Di Martino and Ezra Miller as the two individuals who screwed up their respective multiverses: Sylvie and the Flash?

I do favor the GL/Deadpool pairing, though, whether it's done photo or comic. It's much the same reason as I yearn for a Jim Gordon/J. Jonah Jameson pairing (well, plus it'd be a decent reason to bring back the Spidey-Signal!).

Here's another fun possibility (maybe for April Fool's Day): Pinky and Zoot.

Or how about Pinky and the Brain...and the Brain? ;)

This is quite fitting because the first time I encountered Star-Lord was as a reprinted back-up strip in Star Wars Weekly.

@Ross: is that a thinly-veiled way of saying it'll never happen? ;-D

Bob Greenwade said...

@Daviticus: Well, there's a long-standing idea around here of bringing together Pinky and Monsieur Mallah.

Ross said...

I was answering the question about why I didn't balance this cover out with a DC character.

Oh! Sorry; my bad.

@Bob & Daviticus: With maybe each one putting a contract out on the other...and the Hit Monkey accepting both?

Bob Greenwade said...

@Cary: Nah. It's fun enough seeing Pinky & M. Mallah both hunting for their respective Brains.

But maybe Hit Monkey and Deathstroke can each have a contract on the other, only to find out that they were hired by the same person.

@Bob & Cary: Two-Face would be the perfect antagonist for such a double-cross.
