Dan Zehr recently asked patrons of Coffee With Kenobi, “What makes stormtroopers so cool?” He asked his question in conjunction with a giveaway of 99 Stormtroopers Join the Empire by Greg Stones. I answered with a few of my observations about stormtroopers, but the question got me thinking about stormtroopers in general. Stormtroopers are indeed popular. Go to almost any comic convention, and you will find the 501st Legion, the costuming group featuring the Empire that raises money for charity. Many, if not most, of the 501st’s members costume themselves in the white armor of the stormtroopers. Fans flock to get their picture taken with the stormtroopers. So, what it is about stormtroopers? What is the public perception of them? Why are they so popular. Here are some of my own thoughts on the subject.
