Hey followers,

This be me, Nick. As my name implies I am male, and I am of the age of 20.

My blog primarily focuses around Star Wars and Marvel, both various comic series as well as live action film and television. Back in the day while it was still on the air, I reviewed and wrote commentaries for Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I still plan to do some writings on the series, but I have now shifted towards Marvel's Agents of SHIELD and plan to for the upcoming Star Wars Rebels series due out a year from now.

In general, if you enjoy power with a little responsibility or like to vacation in the galaxy far far away, you should have a good time.

This is also my personal blog. So there may be some whining/personal stuff that I post time to time.

I'm a pretty open dude. Send me some questions regarding whatever.

Overall, enjoy yourself. I do this as much for the people on here who seem to enjoy the stuff I do as for myself. I am always willing to talk. Have a good day!

Ranking The Marvel Cinematic Universe (Updated)

image

One could easily argue that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is easily the most successful experiment in modern pop-cinema. With soon to be nine films under its belt and billions of dollars in box office revenue, the cultural significance of these movies cannot be ignored. Perhaps, best of all, it reignited a new generation of fans passion for characters that have been around for almost half a century.

However, despite the undeniable success of the MCU, there are certainly some adventures that have been more successful than others. Because we all love a good list, I have compiled a ranking of each Marvel film from best to worst. I have tried to be as unbiased as possible, but feel free to sign in with your own opinion in the comments, replies, or reblogs.

That was the first Rebels trailer that actually got my hopes up to a degree.

a few clone wars questions: do you think anakin still would have fallen to the dark had ahsoka not gone into exile? Do you think, if ahsoka hadnt decided to leave the jedi on her own, that palpatine would have made a separate attempt to do away with her? Also do you think ahsoka being banished/leaving was part of palpatines plan all along or would he have rather had her killed (probably during order 66) or even maybe try to get her to go dark side aswell?

Oh wow, it’s really nice to get a Clone Wars related question after such a long time. (Makes me feel all the more guilty for procrastinating so much on those last couples reviews and articles).

I think Ahsoka’s importance to the Star Wars universe is largely just her personal connection to Anakin Skywalker. That’s not to downplay the quality of Ahsoka’s character, but in the grand schemes especially in the manner that Palpatine is concerned, she is a minor player.

How aware of Ahsoka’s relationship to Anakin Palpatine is aware of is up for debate. Any interaction our favorite Togruta and the Supreme Chancellor have is minimal at most and while I’m certain that both are aware of eachother’s existence the extant of each party’ relationship to Anakin is likely another story.

The way I see it, if Palpatine wanted Ahsoka removed prior to Anakin’s fall than he likely would have executed a plan to have it done. As it were Palpatine was not actively removing any Jedi from the picture prior to the events of Revenge of the Sith, even those that would have posed a significant threat to his plans such as Mace Windu or Yoda. Although different, Anakin and Obi-Wan’s relationship is another significantly strong Jedi relationship that, again, Palpatine allows to continue uninterrupted. If Palpatine was not concerned about Anakin’s close friendship with a prominent Jedi Master, who was also one of the best swordsmen of his era, than I doubt Ahsoka would have been very threatening to him.

Why Palpatine took this approach is up for debate. However, it’s entirely possible that Palpatine continued to let Anakin have strong personal relationships seeing as these were clearly his strongest weakness. Whenever Anakin slips to the Dark Side in The Clone Wars it’s not due to arrogance or bloodlust, but often due to anger or a sense of protection towards those he cares about. This is again what is the final step towards dooming him in Revenge of the Sith.

As for whether Anakin would have still turned if Ahsoka remained with him through the war? It’s murky, but I find Anakin’s fall to be an inevitability. Ahsoka’s presence did not sop numerous Dark Side activities on the part of Anakin throughout The Clone Wars. If Obi-Wan and Padme could not stop their brother and husband from losing the light, I feel as though Ahsoka would have difficulty as well.

However, it is also not like Ahsoka was not alive during the events of Revenge of the Sith. Her life post “The Wrong Jedi” is a blank slate, but we do know that she lives. Seeing as how the events of the final entry in the prequel trilogy are so climactic and galaxy changing, I find it hard to believe that Ahsoka would not have been aware of the genocide of the Jedi Order or the rise of the Empire. I also find it hard to believe that she would not have attempted to contact Anakin to some degree. We’ll just have to wait and see I guess.

For the final part of your question, I do not think Palpatine would have allowed a Dark Side Ahsoka to exist for very long. Palpatine in many ways is shown to be one of the most traditionalist Siths we have seen throughout the Star Wars mythos.The Rule of Two appears to be an aspect of Sith philosophy that he places a great deal of respect towards, but is also essential to the success of his long term plans. I do not think Palpatine would have viewed Ahsoka any differently than Asajj Ventress, a useful tool but if unchecked a possible danger.
