Starkiller/Galen Marek (Legends)
This was an easy pick for me honestly. Starkiller is such a great character that casual Star Wars movie goers know him. He became famous due to the popular, “Force Unleashed” games. Starkiller has influenced pop culture with his awesome games and storylines. For this reason, I’d give him a 2/3 for pop culture influence. This directly leads to his popularity within the Star Wars community. Starkiller is VERY popular and for good reason (3/3). He has the single best storyline in Legends, and I’d argue his storyline is on par with the Skywalkers’ storylines if not better. Marek is a force sensitive discovered on Kashyyyk. Darth Vader raided Kashyyyk and was confronted by Marek’s Jedi dad. After Darth Vader killed his force sensitive parents, he discovered infant Marek’s affinity in the force. With this discovery, Vader saw opportunity to eventually overthrow the Emperor. He raised Marek from infancy to become the powerful, “Starkiller”, but Starkiller was eventually betrayed by Vader once the Emperor discovered him. Owning his name Marek, he sought a different life (as a Jedi). He found a washed up Jedi named, “Rahm Kota”, and they two, joined the Rebellion. Marek eventually defeated Vader in their final confrontation and nearly killed the Emperor, but like most challengers, the Emperor dispatched of him. While it may be due to Video Game mechanics and the Emperor’s aging, I’d say Starkiller gave the Emperor a better fight than Yoda did. My brief summary of his life doesn’t do him enough justice. His storyline is on par, if not better than Anakin or Luke’s. For this reason, his character design is a for sure 3/3. Starkiller is great and is interchangeable with the number 3 in my list, but I’d say him not being canon holds him back from further pop culture influence and from higher placement on this list.

There is no mercy. Our location is, “New York City” in the MCU. The “Avengers” start on Earth while the “Imperials” start in space. Both parties have their standard equipment and skill sets. This imperial fleet is comprised of 6 Star Destroyers which are equipped with variations of vehicles (AT-AT, AT-ST, Tie Fighters, etc) and loads of troops (Stormtroopers, Deathtroopers, etc). Neither interference nor help are allowed.
Q: If the force was real how would you use it? 🤔
