Star Wars Takeover Month has officially begun, and what better way to start than with another round of Who Would Win in a Fight? I've got an interesting matchup for this week, but first, let's see who won the vote in last week's quarterfinals...
Quarterfinals Week #3 Results
As one reader correctly predicted, Darth got mauled. With a stunning 100% of the vote, Luke Skywalker crushed Darth Maul to advance to the semifinals (which will be held next week)!
The choice last week may have been clear-cut, but this week, I'm pitting a non-Jedi up against a Sith--Chirrut Îmwe vs. Kylo Ren.
Chirrut Îmwe may not own a lightsaber and may have lost his vision, but this Rogue One character wields the Force like a boss. Armed with only his staff and lightbow, Chirrut has taken down everything from Stormtroopers to TIE Fighters. He's not a Jedi, but his connection to the Force is strong--his famous saying, "I am one with the Force and the Force is with me," shows how deep and meaningful his relationship with the Force is. His death at the hands of the Empire was nothing short of tragic, but his contributions to the Rebellion were major. Check out some of his best moves:
Kylo Ren may be more accurately called an aspiring Sith Lord--or, perhaps, an aspiring Darth Vader. He's a little rough around the edges as far as honing his feelings, but his unbridled anger and hatred have struck fear in the hearts of his enemies and have proved to be an asset to the First Order. One of his most impressive abilities is using the Force to torture victims and coax valuable information out of them. His training may not be yet complete, but his Sith potential is on full display when he kills his father, Han Solo, and when he battles Rey on Starkiller Base. Check out his most memorable fight (so far):
All right, you've seen the contenders, and now it's time to vote! Who would win in a fight? Chirrut Îmwe or Kylo Ren? Voting is open until 11:59 P.M. on Wednesday the 6th, so don't wait to choose!
