22. Poe Dameron

Poe Dameron is a flyboy introduced in The Force Awakens. He didn’t get a ton of screen time in that movie, but made up for it in The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. He’s proven himself to Leia and his skills as a pilot are reminiscent of those Luke shows off in the first trilogy.

Even though he doesn’t have a leading role in either movie, Poe quickly became popular enough to sustain a solo comic book series. Star Wars: Poe Dameron, and Charles Soule has done a nice job giving us more background on the character. With all of the new things being thrown at us these days, sometimes it’s hard to keep up with all of the content, but Poe’s comic book series is worth reading if you feel that you haven’t seen enough of him in the movies and want to dive deeper.

Oscar Isaac’s portrayal of Poe onscreen is endearing. Poe knows he’s a great pilot; he’s not overly annoying about it. He’s one of the people the Resistance can count on, and he showed that with his bravery and determination even after General Leia passed on. Even though the Skywalker saga is over, we’re sure Dameron would continue to lend his support to bringing peace in the galaxy even after the defeat of the First Order.
