    Hey guys, I was thinking about Anakin and who he compared to in mythology and I realized something scary - he parallels The King!

    Consider the following:

    Background:
    Elvis - Grew up in backwater Tupelo, Mississippi with a poor family.

    Anakin - Grew up in backwater Tatooine in a slave family.

    Discovery:
    Elvis - When he sings on a record as a gift to his mother, a recording exec takes note.

    Anakin - When he pilots pod in Boota's Eve race, a Jedi Master takes notice. (The prize money went to his mother.)

    Love life:
    Elvis - Fell in love with 13-year-old brunette cutie while in the Army.

    Anakin - Fell in love with 14-year-old brunette cutie (later marries her while serving in the Clone War.)

    Evil influence:
    Elvis - Col. Tom Parker controls his every move.

    Anakin- Darth Sidious controls his every move.

    Oedipal undoing:
    Elvis - Went to pieces and was never the same after the death of his mother.

    Anakin - Went to pieces and was never the same after the death of his mother.

    Eternal yes-men:
    Elvis - "The Memphis Mafia."

    Vader - Imperial officers.

    Fashion plates:
    Elvis - Wore a cape during the 1970s.

    Anakin - Wore a cape during the 1970s.

    Surly sons-in-law:
    Elvis - Lisa Marie marries Nicolas Cage.

    Anakin - Leia marries Han Solo.

    Hope you enjoyed!

    LOL
    Pretty good, Matt.

    Does this mean Anakin goes to the Dark Side when someone steps on his blue suede shoes? ;)

    Anakin and Elvis are both divine-born to Goddess priestess and go through the classic 5-point Birth, Empowerment, Love, Old Age and Death.
    The are sacrificial Horned-God kings.

    Great point!

    Another Elvis/Anakin connection: Both had elaborate personal transportation. Elvis had his private jet, Ani had a TIE fighter and Super Star Destroyer. Elvis ruled the world as king of rock, while Ani rocked the galaxy itself.

    I want to welcome you to the boards, James, and welcome you and Matt to the Chattanooga FanForce site. Together, we can rule the galaxy...err, rule the FanForce. :D
