5 Star Wars characters who should get their own Marvel comic series

1 of 5

Many Star Wars characters have had their stories told through Marvel one-off issues or miniseries. Here are five more who should also get their own comic series.

Since Marvel took over producing Star Wars comics from Dark Horse in 2015, several Star Wars characters have gotten their canon stories told. Recent Star Wars comic series featured classic characters like Darth Vader and Princess Leia as well as new faces like Poe Dameron and Doctor Aphra.

But Star Wars is a big universe, and there are a lot of characters who deserve to have their stories told in comic book form. In this article, we present five heroes and villains we want Marvel to feature next.

5. Qui-Gon Jinn

Qui-Gon Jinn gets overlooked a lot, probably because he only appeared on-screen in one Star Wars film (The Phantom Menace) and then again briefly as a vision in The Clone Wars. But that’s a flimsy reason. This character has so much potential for great stories, primarily for the reason that he is a dark horse within the Jedi Order. He consistently defies the Jedi Council’s orders, and not just in the matter of training Anakin Skywalker. His apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi, even makes the comment in The Phantom Menace that if Qui-Gon would just conform, he would have a seat on the Council himself, an admonishment which implies that Qui-Gon has disobeyed the Council more than once.

We see proof that Qui-Gon is an unorthodox Jedi in The Phantom Menace, but we still don’t know why he turned out this way. What events shaped his point of view? Why does he believe so strongly in the prophecy of the Chosen One? These are questions which could be easily and effectively answered in a comic series.
