    Default That's One Bad Ass Princess Leia (Spoilers)

    Princess Leia. Okay, she's a sharp shooter when the Stormtroopers, and she'll strangle a Hutt in self defense, but what about when it comes to cold, hard warfare and she has to deal with an Empire enemy in cold blood?

    You'll find out today in Star Wars #1 as a downed Leia tracks the Tie Fighter that took her down.



    Finds the craft in question....



    And then finishes the job.



    No words are needed...

    I was enjoying this excerpt until the last panel. Dunno: feel like "coolly executing a downed enemy by headshot" is a little more hardcore than I normally think of Leia, or enjoy imagining her.

    Being a bad ass is in her blood since Anakin Skywalker was in the Weapon X program with Wolverine. Yes that is my pitch for when Marvel takes over the license, why do you ask?

    Leia was hardcore and badass enough. A gutshot followed by a double tap just seems overboard.

    Might I remind you of that scene by the bunker door in ROTJ?

    Someone told me once that Leia doesn't miss a shot in the entire OT. Never bothered to check, myself.

    Is this the new Marvel series? Will Darkhorse survive without the license?

    I agree. Between that & the inevitable switch to Marvel, I think I'm reconsidering my initial idea to use this book as an entry back into Star Wars comics.

    She's a deadly aim. All the more reason to question why she needs to shoot this guy 3 times.

    George Lucas (who retconned Han shooting first) must be spinning in his grave
