    As would I.

    Now we can get back to our regularly schedule debate as to whether nor not everything we've ever read/played/watched from the EU will cease to exist come 2015.

    Bah. If my EU ends in 2015 I'll just go to a store and buy a new EU. Actually, every piece of EU I have will end after a couple of hours.

    I highly doubt the EU will be trashed... without it, the Star Wars franchise would of died long ago.

    Err, or I'm just suggesting that the best thing to do would be for authors to stop contradicting authors, but since we can't have that. retcons are better than the alternative. I do not want a reboot.

    Will Star Wars be part of "Marvel NOW!" ?

    Is anybody worried about SW comics with Marvel now that Marvel went and killed off Spidey in the last issue in a controversial manner? If they can mess that up and make such a decision, imagine what they might do to our beloved Star Wars.

    ...they will Order 66 our Quinlans, K'kruhks, and Cades?


    No wait. Waiiiit. What if...... what if they kill Daiman? In the Goodvalors Lounge. With the vibroknife.

    Marvel will scour the DH forums to deliberately contrive the most controversial death imaginable.

    He'd be back alive soon. And being the Creator of All, he would have a good excuse.

    Hasn't he died before? Or was that Ultimate Spidey?

    Anyone who thinks Marvel intend this at all as a "death of Peter Parker" story need only compare its marketing to that of the Ultimate one.

    Spiderman has died more times than I care to recollect... Cap died at the end of the Civil War... the Human Torch after that... Wanda died at the end of House of M... Charles dies at end of A v X... who cares. They'll be back next month, and we still won't have any better idea of how it all fits together.

    That's what some of you want for Star Wars? Shame on you.

    Madam, you take that back, you take that back right now![face_not_talking]

    A vibroknife... please.

    Only the Glove of Darth Vader can defeat Daiman. [face_shame_on_you]

    Maybe they should publish Star Wars graphic novels instead of Star Wars comics.

    Now that's a story I want to read about. What is the exact nature of the Glove of Darth Vader, if it is knowable at all? Why is the Glove the one object immune to the Creators will? Was the Glove truly created by Daiman? Did it simply grow beyond his seemingly infallible control, or was it created by another in defiance of His will? Can Trioculus use the Glove to destroy God himself?
