Why Continuum Chronicles: The Rebecka Trilogy kicks the snot out of Star Wars 21. Heros, SW: Luke Skywalker, force user, pilot; LOTR: Short, shoeless, hairy Frodo looking worried all the time Rebecka Costillion has Agents Snow, Tac, Empryean 1610, Nimbus and many more super powered women dressed in skin tight field suits kicking butt 20. SW: The Millenium Falcon, LOTR: A Horse Continuum Cronicles (CC) has The Orion, waay cooler than the Falcon 19. Unlike Gandalf, Obi-Wan does more than make rooms brighter Obi-wan wishes he could handle a sword like Rebecka does 18. The force is the ultimate power, while the ring does little more than compliment a fancy outfit. All Mesh have a variety of powers some of which makes the ring and the force look silly. 17. Star Wars: Chicks with blasters. LOTR: Chicks with swords. Who'd win at ten paces? There are more tightly clad, super powered, butt kicking, HW wielding women in the first page of Continuum chronicles then in all of SW, Alias, LOTR and Superman combined 16. It takes half as much time to type "SW" than it takes to type "LOTR". CC, tie 15. In Star Wars, Christopher Lee was beaten by an butt-kicking Jedi named Yoda. In LOTR, he was beaten by a slow-moving tree named.... oh, who cares what his name was. HE WAS A TREE, for crying out loud!! Christopher Lee is strangely absent from my book. 14. George has better fashion sense than PJ. Mmm, flannel. I am the creator of CC and I wear Star Wars T-shirts I win 13. because lucas's filmic vision is an original construct, while jackson's is mere adaptation Mine is also original and if this book were on film it would be the best EVER! 12. Three words: Slave Girl Outfit Mesh Fieldsuit (also very yummy) 11. Luke's second cousin, twice removed (on his mothers side) didn't tag along and almost get every one killed Rebecka took no relatives with her, but several other Mesh operatives caem, all very cool. 10. In LOTR, short guys with pointy ears run away like pansies at the sight of danger. In Star Wars, short guys with pointy ears KICK butt!!!! No short guys with pointy ears in CC, another bonus! 9. There were no AT-AT's at Helm's Deep, were there? Hmmm? SW gets this one, I don?t have a AT-AT equivalent in my book, so it wont be tripped by a rope either! 8. Natalie Portman's abs There?s an entire corporation of women who are in shape and look good in my novel. 7. A sword can't melt through a blast door, much less the gate to the Mines of Moria I have women with projection powers that can melt that door! 6. Thrill as an old man tries to figure out how to open an old door! 5. Hrmph. I did not see a SINGLE half-naked elf dancer ANYWHERE in Rivendell... Half naked women (or more) all over the book. 4. At least Star Wars has an actual villain, not some stupid burning eye sitting on top of a tower. (Ed: Really!) My story has Zarah and shed kick Vader?s butt! (assuming she could get her hands on a lightsaber. Her ?sword? wouldn't stand up to a lightsaber I?m afraid.) 3. When Luke left home, he got over it. Rebecka was partially responsible for destroying all of existence. (still has a few issues to work out on that one) 2. Taun We is hot. Yeah, you heard me. Rebecka is hotter And the number one reason why Star Wars is better than LOTR... One word, Lightsabers. CRAP! I lost to my own argument, theres nothing cooler than lightsabers in my book, but I came up with something pretty close?.
