Under the Marvel banner, it appears Star Wars fans will be given a fight that they may not have necessarily known they needed. As far as longed-for battles go, Chewbacca and Darth Vader may not have been high up on your list, but now that it’s been spoken into existence, it sounds like a pretty kickass idea.
And now that you’ve heard it, you can prepare to experience the matchup later this fall once Star Wars #74 releases.
In terms of practicality – while you can’t really say the grounds on which walking fuzz-balls and Sith Lords are really practical – a hand-to-hand fight with Darth Vador doesn’t sound like the best idea for the Millenium Falcon’s co-pilot. But a quick look at the cover for the upcoming issue indicates that this is exactly what’s going to happen come November.

Now, how could a Wookie possibly overpower a Sith Lord? Well, given that this is one of the teases CBR’s synopsis makes, you’ll have to wait and see. And here’s everything else you need to know about the upcoming comic:

To me, the force capabilities and lightsaber skill Vader possesses sounds like enough to take on anything, man or beast – I mean, did you see what he did to that Rebel scum at the end of Rogue One? But given my extensive knowledge of the LEGO Star Wars video game from back in the day, I also remember Chewbacca ripping Stormtroopers’ arms out of their socket with ease. So maybe this fight is more even than I’m giving it credit for.
But be sure to check out Star Wars #74 this November to see just how the mega battle plays out.
