One of the things that makes Han Solo such a great character is how little we know about him. We know he’s a Corellian smuggler with a long history before we meet him in the Cantina on Tatooine and he won the Millennium Falcon gambling with Lando. And while we’ve heard tons of rumors about a movie possibly filling in those innumerable holes, this week Lucasfilm dropped a massive piece of information about Solo’s past in the pages of their latest Marvel comic.
We won’t spoil it above the jump, but it’s in Star Wars #6 and it’s a game changer. Go and read the comic now or, find out the Han Solo past reveal below.
Massive spoilers for Star Wars #6 below.
In the comic, Han and Leia are on a mission to find a new home for the Rebel Alliance. They will, eventually, settle on Hoth but that hasn’t happened yet. Solo sets them down on a remote planet that he says only he knows about when a mysterious ship follows him there. It’s as if this person has been waiting for him and knew he’d return.
The person’s ship, which looks like the back of the Millennium Falcon and the front snout of an X-Wing comes onto the planet, spots solo with Leia and fires. Solo is scared, runs, when this happens.
You’re final major spoiler warning.
HAN SOLO WAS MARRIED?!?! And remember, these comics are 100% considered part of the Star Wars canon.
The Solo/Leia storyline in this issue ends with these frames so we don’t yet know if Sana Solo is lying or not. But Han’s reaction seems like she isn’t.
By the way, since we’re already spoiling things from this issue, it features an awesome battle between Boba Fett and Luke Skywalker in Ben Kenobi’s hut on Tatooine as well as the moment Darth Vader finds out the name of the person who blew up the Death Star. That being his own name.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ve got to be reading these comics. They are absolutely incredible.
But as for Han Solo, can you believe this?Cool Posts From Around the Web:
