13. Ray Park
Best known to Star Wars fans as, Darth Maul, the demonic-looking Zabrak apprentice of Darth Sidious and nemesis of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ray Park wowed audiences back in 1999 with his acrobatic moves and lethal skill with a double-bladed, red lightsaber.
Despite being split-in half by Kenobi’s lightsaber, Maul would go on to terrorize the galaxy once again thanks to the creative teamwork of George Lucas and Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels’ showrunner Dave Filoni. Park even reprised his iconic role once again in a memorable cameo shown in Solo: A Star Wars Story as the head of the criminal syndicate known as Crimson Dawn.
Besides being recognized as one of Star Wars deadliest Sith apprentices, Park is also known for portraying the equally deadly but heroic ninja Snake Eyes in the G. I. Joe films. It’s in connection to this character that Park got his writing credentials as a co-author of the comic book limited series G. I. Joe: Snake Eyes #1-4. The series itself is based in the G. I. Joe film universe and the plot has Snake Eyes being dispatched to Japan in order to uncover the identity of an impostor that is trying to frame him for a series of murders.
As cool as it is to see the actor do a comic book on Snake Eyes, it would be infinitely more awesome if we could get Park to craft a story for his more iconic role as Darth Maul. That would likely be an instant hit for Marvel on the same level as Keanu Reeves’ recent announcement of doing the BRZRKR comic for Boom! Studios. Man, now I really want it. Get to it, Ray. Us Darth Maul fans have spoken!
