Pity poor Darth Vader, still a victim to the poor choices he made and pupil to a mentor who’d just as soon kill him as maliciously smile at him.
On second thought, spare no pity for poor Darth Vader.
He’s in a purgatory of his own volition, a hell in a machine shell that his lack of foresight and inability to keep emotion at bay has wrought.
Such is the predicament that writer Charles Soule, penciller Giuseppe Camuncoli, inker Cam Smith, colorist David Curiel and letter VC’s Joe Caramagna have placed the Jedi formerly known as Anakin in and there’s no hope he’ll ever get out of it.
Which is good, just even, given the concluding chapter of “The Chosen One” has Darth Vader triumphant and then subservient despite having completed his task of acquiring the weapon of a Sith.
