I hope there’s a nice copy of this Star Wars #50 variant left at Newbury Comics tomorrow... I had the pleasure of meeting @johntylerchristopher at @dmcomics a few years ago, we talked about how The Clone Wars series had restored my faith in The Galaxy, and how he mainly consumes TV and movies as radio dramas, since he’s too busy drawing to actually look at the screen! I hated Palpatine so much he upset my stomach as a kid, but now he is one of my very favorite characters. He and Vader both have tons of devastatingly funny lines, and my beloved Emperor has the best laugh in the galaxy. It actually surprised me by coming out of my own mouth recently! 🖤 #emperorpalpatine#palpatine#johntylerchristopher#marvelstarwars#starwarscomics#forcelightning#bestlaugh#greatest#sithlord
Force lightning was a purely offensive, energy-based attack that channeled Force energy down the user's limbs, hurling arcing bolts of electricity from the wielder's fingertips or palms; Force lightning could be executed with either one or two hands. Users skilled in controlling the intensity and force of their lightning could render a target unconscious with only a short burst, or kill a person instantly with a single, powerful blast. Darth Bane's lightning, for example, would often electrocute his opponents to death on contact. Darth Sidious could conjure lightning so powerful that not only would it instantly kill its target, it would also physically hurl them backwards. Force lightning could be blocked with a lightsaber, However, some of the technique's most exceptionally powerful practitioners, were capable of producing blasts that contained enough kinetic energy to tear an ignited lightsaber from their opponent's grasp. One of the most notable examples of this was seen during the duel between Darth Sidious and Yoda, where Sidious disarmed the Jedi master with a particularly powerful lightning blast. Force lightning could also be absorbed and redirected by a Jedi of sufficient skill; Yoda demonstrated this ability by both deflecting and absorbing the dark power during battles with Darths Sidious and Tyranus, using nothing more than his own two hands. Luke Skywalker attempted this, and succeeded for a short amount of time, before the Emperor's attack overwhelmed him. Some Jedi could use a variant of this power called Electric Judgment, It showed up as yellow or green energy instead of blue or white. This power was uncommon and controversial among the Jedi due to its use having intrinsic association with anger and aggression and its similarity to Force lightning #StarWarsLegends#ForceLightning
This was a very uncontrollable variant of Force push.
The Force user blasted the target with Force push, sending the object through the air. The user then generated a large ball of Force lightning. The Force user allowed the lightning to expand freely, until it was no longer under his or her control. They would then blast the Force lightning ball after the target, hence "Sith Seeker". The lightning exploded on impact with an opponent or object.
The only known practitioner of Sith Seeker was Galen Marek, from the Force Unleashed Seires.
