StarWars.com’s third annual This Is Madness Star Wars Character Tournament has come to an end with Luke Skywalker emerging victorious over his father, Darth Vader! Vader was last year’s champion. Let’s hope he’s gracious in defeat… unlike his grandson.
Here’s how the results shook out:
Luke Skywalker, legendary Jedi and hero of the Rebellion, defeated the evil Darth Vader to win the championship in This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament, StarWars.com’s annual competition in which fans vote for their favorite heroes and villains. This marks the first title win for Skywalker — and a notable one, coming against his biggest nemesis and last year’s champion. This tournament also marked a huge turnaround for the Jedi; in This Is Madness 2015, he did not even make the tournament, losing a Play-In matchup to Ahsoka Tano, and had previously never made it past the second round. But with a powerful appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, his popularity seems to be at an all-time high. In an amazing run, Luke had decisive victories over major characters in each round, including wins over Hera Syndulla (89%-11%), Han Solo (58%-42%), and Obi-Wan Kenobi (54%-46%), before his ultimate triumph over Vader, a 64%-36% shellacking.
Not bad for a Jedi who had previously withdrawn from the galaxy. Congratulations, Master Skywalker! I was pulling for you all along. 🙂Powered by Sidelines
