QI’RA: A Rebel Rises: Chapter Five

Coruscant was like a second home for Qi’ra. It seemed that the leaders of the Empire found her invaluable, especially after the loss of their greatest weapon, the infamous Death Star. In actuality, deep down Qi’ra was glad the pesky Rebellion had destroyed the Death Star. The planet-sized weapon gave the Empire too much power. It almost seemed unorthodox to wield such might.

The loss of the Death Star had also risen Crimson Dawn’s status in the galaxy, for the Empire looked to her to quell the rising opposition they faced across the galaxy. This was a development that upset the members of the Shadow Collective–the alliance of crime syndicates that Maul had once created, but she didn’t mind that the Empire looked upon the other syndicates as mere scum. If she was the one calling the shots, that was all she cared about.

She stood in a large room located within the Senate Building in Coruscant, surrounded by dour Imperials. The grim-faced men and women in their matching black and grey perfectly tailored uniforms regarded her with mild neutrality. They clearly weren’t appreciative of her presence and felt that she didn’t deserve to be there but she was their best chance at keeping the rebels at bay so they tolerated her.

Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Twenty-Five

Rose thought she knew her husband. And she did. She believed that but there was another side to him. One that he didn’t want her to know. And as much as she asked him about his escapades out there in the galaxy he never let her know what he did. He kept her in the dark and now the secrets were coming to the light.

Who’s Your Favorite X-Men Character?

(This is a repost.)

The X-Men are an awesome array of unique characters with incredible abilities. It’s only until recently that I’ve begun to actually care and pay attention to the different heroes and I have to say, they’re pretty awesome. Their movies aren’t as great or easy to follow (timeline-wise) as the MCU movies but if you like superheroes there are tons of heroes to get behind in this franchise. With this many cool characters to enjoy there will always be debate of who’s the best of the X-Men. And that’s why they are the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are the characters.

(My X-Men knowledge is limited so I will be listing the mainstream characters that I know.)

Cyclops

cyclops

Cyclops has always been a cool character because of his interesting eye beam ability and the same can still be said from this most recent rendition of the character. While I don’t know much about the X-Men I knew who Cyclops was in my younger age and that shows the impact this hero had on me as a child.

Mystique

mystique

Mystique is easily one of the coolest concepts of a character in the superhero world. The fact that she’s this shape-shifting alien-ish sort of being is remarkable awesome and it’s what makes her so cool. She’s also a great fighter as well. All in all, Mystique is pretty cool.
