Deep Thoughts: Who is Han Solo?

Han Solo is one of the greatest characters in the Star Wars Universe because we don’t know much about him.  In our first introduction the the character he is hanging out on Tatooine in Mos Eisley and we learn from Obi Wan Kenobi that  “Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.”

It would seem that we really don’t know anything or at least we thought we did.  Well, Marvel has decided that they are going to let us in on a little secret, but we will have to wait for in Star Wars #6, but things are about to change drastically for this character.  In the current comic we see Han and Leia are on a mission to find a new base of operations for the Rebel Alliance, which as we know they eventually settle on Hoth, but this is filling in those gaps. During this mission Han Solo sets them down on a remote planet, but realizes that a ship has been following them. Now one could think it is Boba Fett since there is a little history there and Jabba set a bounty on Solo, but then you would be mistaken.

Now if you don’t wish to be spoiled I would suggest not readying forward, but if you just can’t resist this is for you.






You still don’t have to go forward, but you know you want too.


WHAT!!!!!! SOLO IS A MARRIED MAN!!!!  and with the re-alignment of Star Wars Cannon this is now official.
