Han Solo Stormtrooper has always been recognized and known amongst the fandom, but never quite fulfilling the canon requirements. Until now anyway with the Star Wars comics.
Whether you have heard about in another blog, from a friend, or from the Solo: A Star Wars Story. Han’s time as a Stormtrooper has always been known, but it has never quite reached the level of canon but a Star Wars comic has gone and fixed that little hiccup.
Star Wars #58, by Kieron Gillen and Angel Unzueta, settles the issue of whether Han served as a Stormtrooper or some other faction of the Imperial Navy, in an exchange between himself and Leia.

Han comments how six months serving as a Trooper would make a certain someone a little more organized. Leia then replies back, still in disbelief that he served as a Stormtrooper. Han then goes on to explain how he became to be kitted out in the familiar white armor, reflecting back to the events that we watched play out in Solo.

This moment in the comic should settle the debate over what exactly Han was while serving the Empire, which has so far ranged from the sensible to the outright insane. This debate really should have been settled when Solo came out, but the best we could get was he served as a Mudtrooper. And when Disney was directly asked if Han was a Stormtrooper or not, the answers were rather vague.
Are you happy to see Han recognized as a Stormtrooper? Or do you not like the idea of our favorite scoundrel doing the armor? Or do you really not give a hoot one way or the other? Drop a comment just below sharing your thoughts.
