    A lot of TLJ reminded me of the Dark Horse comic, Dark Empire but I was too busy to re-read it until tonite. DE appears to be the first (?) occurrence of a Force Avatar. Luke uses it to trick Leia into leaving him behind on the planet Byss, where he's become the Emperor's new apprentice. I saw a lot of other parallels with DE II as well. I'll post more detailed thoughts. But did anyone else catch this?

    I did. Mentioned it on the forums right after people started complaining about the movie. I got dismissed because “DE isnt canon.” That may be true, but it doesn’t change the fact that it is from Legends. And more than a few things have been pulled up to become canon.

    Grand Admiral Thrawn anyone?

    Yeah, and in DE it was supposed to be a dark side ability...and it was not fatal. (Really dumb, but the director/screenwriters wanted to off Luke to give room for the «new»)

    There were other interesting things going on in that comic too, like Leia’s developing force abilities, and her potential. Even a comic executed that better than the superman scene we were served.

    There’s also a scene with Luke vs an AT-AT...and they have some arms traficking going on to both sides.

    Just finished my re-reading of Dark Empire comics (only DE I, not the II) after a long period of years (since the 90's) and I found this old thread that I think its interesting.

    First of all the phrase that they used in TLJ: "We are the spark, that will light the fire that will burn the First Order down.”

    I think RJ took this from the comics or its a big coincidence. When the old jedi lady gives to Leia the lightsaber.

    And later, how it what said before here, the force projection of Luke. He was not the real physical form, actually he was always in Biss (Exegol?)

    Also Palpatine super powers at the end of the comics are very similar of what we see in TROS, affecting the Rebels starships.
