It seems Marvel’s The Final Jedi comedian e book is the present that retains on giving. Not solely has it already given us Admiral Ackbar’s final phrases and Common Organa’s area flight from her personal perspective, it now lastly places to mattress the query of how Rey was capable of get the higher hand on Luke throughout their small battle on Island of Ahch-To. In line with Marvel Comics Star Wars: The Final Jedi #four, it seems to be a mixture of luck and clumsiness on Luke’s half.
Within the movie sequence, Luke pulls Rey’s workers from her palms earlier than she Drive-grabs his lightsaber and he falls to his again, utilizing the Drive to catch himself earlier than he fully hits the bottom. Within the comedian e book, there may be one small panel which clearly exhibits how this got here to be.
Take a look on the web page under, particularly the small panel on the suitable aspect…
There you’ve gotten it “Mary Sue” followers. In line with artist Michael Walsh and author Gary Whitta, it is a minor slip that causes Luke Skywalker to finish up on his again and never the all highly effective Rey. This one small element clearly will not change the minds of oldsters who firmly consider Rey is actually a “Mary Sue” character however hopefully it no less than causes haters of the movie to focus their vitality on one thing else. Their insistence that Rey is progressing too shortly and utilizing this scene from The Final Jedi as proof for that argument appears perhaps moot now. And whereas I perceive this maybe will not fully change your opinion on Rian Johnson’s model of Luke Skywalker, it hopefully gives you some resolve on the subject of this scene anyhow, it did for me.
