In the Star Wars movies, Anakin Skywalker is a no-show in the dad department. He’s off doing his Darth Vader thing and puts himself back into Luke’s life in the worst way possible. In the wonderful alternate universe book Darth Vader and Son by cartoonist Jeffrey Brown, we see pictures of what Darth Vader would have been like as a good dad:
The force is strong with your swing, son!
Patience, old Skywalker.
“Dad, do Banthas also have midi-chlorians?”
I scream, you scream, we all scream: “NOOOOOOO!”
It takes FOREVER to get to Alderon!
Or the horrible Wookie equivalent.
Even worse, it’s a talking Jar-Jar.
