Should they bring Anakin Solo back. I think they should. And no, it's not to lat to bring Anakin back. There is just something about his death I have always hated. Well, actually, many things. I know that they decided against bringing Anakin back using Flow Walking because of the box of worms it would open. But there are many ways that they could bring him back that would not opne such a box of worms. And many reasons why they should. I thought I would see how you all fell about bringing Anakin back. But first here is my reasoning why I think they should bring him back. Come back for that kiss. While that may not be exactly what Tahiri said to Anakin just before his death. It was the gist of it. That was the worst part of Anakin's death. And there were many bad parts. If you ask me that's just begging for Anakin to come back. "Remember, you two are stronger than the sum of your parts. Together you two could" he pauses "No, I've said enough. Together, that's the important thing. Now go." Master Ikrit said that to Anakin about him and Tahiri just before he gave his life so Anakin could escape. So far nothing has come of it. But it still could mean something. For all we know he saw Anakin's death and rebirth and knew he couldn't say anything about it to Anakin. Luke saw Anakin and his sibling leading the Jedi. The cruelty of Anakins death. Firstly as I mentioned before the kiss, or lack there of. Secondly his and Tahiri's relationship just got started. Plus he died without ever making up with his dad. Han was still giving him the cold shoulder over Chewbacca's death. His death was not fitting. He had so much left to do and he didn't really accomplish anything in his death. Everone else had at least a fitting death. Vader died being redeemed. Chewbacca saving people. Mara defending her son. Anakin's death, taking a few Vong with him. Not even that many. Look at Ganner Rysode, he took thousands of Vong with him. Anakin a few dozen. He even failed to take Nom Anor down with him. Plus it wasn't even a case where had he not sacrifice himself the mission would have failed. He could have lived and they still would have completed the mission. Leia name him Anakin to redeem the Anakin name. He never got the chance. Sure the Jedi of this age and his family will remember the name Anakin for Anakin Solo, but not the people at large. In fact, the Anakin name was just dragged further down with the ship Anakin Solo used by Darth Cadeus. A total disgrace to him. His death didn't really affect the over all story as most others death. Where Mara's death secured Jacen as a Dark Lord of the Sith, and even Ganner's death allowed Jacen to stop the World Brain. Anakin's did not really affect anything. In the end it was Vergere's torture and all the wars Jacen has seen that caused him to fall. He would still have fallen if Anakin had stayed alive. Tahiri Veila. Her life has sucked. First her parents are killed in front of her eyes. Next she gets captured and tortured by the Vong. Then her true love is killed before her eyes. Used by her loves brother. Convicted of murder. And many other horrible things. Only really good thing in her life was Anakin. And they took him away. Tahiri deserves to have Anakin back and live happily ever after. They bring bad guys back all the time. Palpatine died and came back multiple times. Darth Krayt died and came back. Darth Maul came back, a decade later like what it would be like if Anakin came back. Even Boba Fett came back. He was killed in the movie, yet he miraculously survived and came back in the books. So why can't a good guy come back. With Jaina married to Jagged and taking the Fel name only Allana has the Solo name. And when she becomes Queen she can no longer be a Jedi. The Solo name has become just as important to the Jedi as the Skywalker name. They need to keep the Solo line in the Jedi. You can totally tell early in the New Jedi Order series that they did not plan to kill Anakin. His death just feels rushed and they leave so many plots open involving Anakin and the visions of him being a great Jedi. How epic would be be to see the interactions of Anakin with everyone after coming back after this time. Him meeting a teenage Ben. Everyone would be over joyed to see him but then it would get awkward with him adjusting to the present. Being able to see that kiss Tahiri promised Anakin. To much angst in the New Jedi Order series and beyond. Not many happy moments. People need more happy moments. And Anakin's return would be very happy. That's all the reasons I've got off the top of my head. If you have more please share them. There is hope. Troy Denning thought of bringing Anakin back. And if a author, more importantly the one who killed Anakin thought of bringing him back that mean there is hope. Now to address some of the problems I've seen people have with bringing Anakin back. Some say it get's old to bring people back all the time. I agree. Thing is, this isn't like superhero comics where they bring people back all the time. I haven't seen one good guy brought back in Star Wars. Only only like three bad guys. And only one of them was officially dead. That would be Palpatine George Lucas did not order Anakin's death. He just told them not to have him as the hero of NJO. Anakin Solo was not a simple character. His fear of his name anf many other things made him complex. The box of worms it would open. All they would have to do is make it next to impossible, or even impossible for anyone else to come back that way and vala, no box of worms opened. If you have different problems with his return just post them, I'd love to show some ways to get around them. Just make sure your post are helping the discussion. Something along the line as saying Anakin suck so don't bring him back does not help the discussion. All of you who do think Anakin should come back I would love to see your posts. I would love to see why you think it would be a good idea to bring Anakin back. It would also be great if you try to let Del Rey, LucasArts, Disney or who ever is in charge of the books that we want Anakin Solo back. Through email or any other way you know how. Some one should even make a petition to bring Anakin back. Here is to the hope that they bring Anakin Solo back.
