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!
