galactic emperor

When I make too many pun jokes in front of my friends.

alkja  asked:

I You know, I believe I have read a vignette/ficlet or something where Obi-Wan killed/helped kill Palpatine, saved the galaxy, ended up in a coma for a week or so and when he woke up Bail was "Soooo, you're not gonna like this but... the Senate is kinda useless, nobody knew what to do except bicker and we needed someone in charge but nobody could be trusted and everyone was panicking so... you broke it you bought it: we made you the new Emperor. Congratulations?" [cont]

Imagine: dramatic battle between SC!Kenobi and Palpatine (and assorted allies). Palpy dies, Obi-Wan is wounded and at the first safe chance collapses and goes in a coma. He wakes up, remembers the Sith Lord is dead, the Galaxy is safe, the war is probably gonna end soon, he did his duty. Blessed Force, he did his duty. He’s free. They don’t need him anymore. He can go back to be just a Jedi among Jedi. But why is everyone so weird around him? [cont] 

And then up pops a delegations of Senators and surely they’re there to tell him he’s no longer need as SC but no. No, they’re not. They tell some incredible tale of Senate disarray, failsafes of Palpatine’s going off and state of emergency and… some obscure law (!!!) and a vote (!!!) and… “Galactic Emperor”? The Senators are booted out by the medical staff when they burst in to stop Obi-Wan from tearing everything apart trying to escape.

sdfghjkl! Obi-Wan would lose it if they tried it, lmao.

Evil Ultramen

One of my favorite fictional tropes is the evil duplicate.  You know, the dark reflection of a hero or group of heroes.  Like the Nejirangers from Denji Sentai Megaranger

Or the Shocker Riders from Kamen Rider

It should come as no surprise that there would also be evil Ultraman villains that resemble the heroes in some way.  Some might be fakes or robot copies but some are actual evil version of our heroes.  Here are a few in all those categories!

5. Fake Ultraman/Alien Zarab

The very first evil version of Ultraman is from the original 1966 series.  Episode 18 “The Brother From Another World” introduced us to the seemingly benign Alien Zarab. However, as with most aliens in the series, his intentions were secretly sinister and included discrediting Ultraman.  To this end, he transformed himself into a faux-Ultraman and attacked the city.  In his Ultra-Form his eyes were much more slanted, his features pinched and sharper and he has curled toes.  He was defeated when the actual Ultraman showed up to put an end to him.

4. Robot Ultraseven

The first robot duplicate on our list, this robotic version of the hero of 1967′s entry in the Ultra Hero franchise was created by the Salome Aliens.  They wanted to use the power of Ultraseven to attack the world and conquer it for themselves. To this end, they kidnapped Dan Moroboshi and forced him to reveal the secret of his beam attack so they could install it in their copy. The robot worked as planned but Dan escaped from their intended deathtrap, transformed into the real Ultraseven and made short work of his mechanical doppelganger. It was featured in episode 46 “The Duel: Dan vs. Seven”.

3. Ultraman Shadow

Ultraman Shadow was another evil Ultraman robot copy.  This time, it was created by the evil Alien Lady Benzene in the 1997 movie Ultraman Zearth 2 to defeat Ultraman Zearth who had thwarted the ambitions of her race previously. Though incredibly powerful, it was eventually destroyed in battle with the titular hero. It bears a slight resemblance in the face, eyes and ears to the Fake Ultraman/Alien Zarab but has a dark blue and yellow color scheme.

2. Evil Tiga

Evil Tiga appeared in episode 44 of Ultraman Tiga “The One Who Inherits the Shadows”.  He was a fusion of one of the ancient Ultra Warriors (much like Tiga himself) and a human being, Keigo Masaki. His intentions were not to protect humanity but to use the powers of the Ultra Warrior to guide humanity to a new, brighter future under his leadership.  However, he was not able to control the power once fused on went out of control, leading to a confrontation with Ultraman Tiga.

1. Ultraman Belial

Once, Belial was a young and powerful Ultraman but he tried to steal energy from the Ultra Spark that gives all Ultramen their powers and keeps the Land of Light alive. He was also infused with evil Reionyx energy, giving him the power to control monsters and twisting him entirely to evil. After a massive battle, he was imprisoned but released years later to carry out his revenge.  He was defeated by Ultraman Zero but escaped into another universe where he set himself up as a Galactic Emperor, Kaiser Belial and began conquering planet after planet until once more stopped by Ultraman Zero, this time backed by a group of allies he collected known as Ultimate Force Zero.

“That Anakin had built C-3P0 from spare parts was not known when the original trilogy was first released. But the events in The Phantom Menace suggested new possibilities for a moment on Cloud City that was not revealed in The Empire Strikes Back.”
-Star Wars, Panel to Panel, pp. 68-69

Darth Vader: I did not summon him. His spies followed you here. What is thy bidding, my Master?

Darth Sidious: You have forgotten your place, Lord Vader. By taking this boy as your apprentice, you have betrayed me. Now you will kill him, or I will destroy you both!

Starkiller: Master… We can defeat him together… 

Darth Sidious: Do it now, Lord Vader! Strike him down and prove your loyalty to me!

Darth Maul comic series coming in 2017

A Darth Maul comic book is being unleashed on Star Wars fans in the new year, though the fan-favorite Sith apprentice is more leashed than they’ve ever seen him.

Written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross, the five-issue Marvel Comics miniseries Star Wars: Darth Maul (to debut in February) takes a look at the tattooed villain’s younger days before his short-lived appearance in the 1999 prequel film Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. On tap for the antagonistic warrior: lots of rage, a need to take revenge against the Jedi, and problems taking orders.

The comic finds Maul an untested warrior under the training of Darth Sidious, who would later become the Galactic Emperor. Told to stand down from engaging with Jedi yet, Maul hunts down the worst of the worst in the cosmic underworld to vent his frustration.

After learning a young Jedi Padawan named Eldra Kaitis has fallen into the hands of a crime lord, Maul seizes an opportunity to test his skills against a real Jedi but also maybe turn someone else to the dark side.

“And when this is over, the Republic will place the banks under the control of the Supreme Chancellor”

-Darth Sidious, “Star War: The Clone Wars”

anonymous asked:

In a Toontown/Who Framed Roger Rabbit AU, how do you think the Star Wars cast (From Clone Wars or Rebels) would react to learning that Mickey Mouse in now technically their boss?

That’s an interesting question for a very interesting AU, I must say! XD
But the only thing that comes to mind at the moment is this scenario:

am i kicked out of the fandom yet?
