Ever since Marvel took over the Star Wars comics, the galaxy far, far away has featured some outstanding story arcs that have helped to expand Star Wars canon in the wake of the erasure of all the Star Wars Legends that came before. When it comes to Darth Vader, the Dark Lord of the Sith’s own comic book series has done a much better job of fleshing out the villain than any of the episodes in the prequel trilogy. In fact, the current arc in Marvel’s Darth Vader could have major ramifications on the future of Star Wars, especially when it comes to the power of the dark side and The Force in general.

Before he became James Bond, Roger Moore graced the small screen as The Saint, aka Simon Templar, a thief and master of disguise who originated in a series of books in the 1920s and quickly expanded into the world of radio, comics, TV, and movies.
