    While there is some truth to this, in terms of her archeological background, in terms of archetype she's much closer to Han. Without the heart of gold, as it were.

    Which shouldn't be the least bit surprising, considering how she was introduced. In Darth Vader (vol 1), Vader puts together a crew that is intentionally designed to mirror Luke's. Vader as the Skywalker, Aphra as dark Han, TripZero as dark 3P0, BT as dark R2, Black Krssantan (or however you spell that, I never get it right) as dark Chewie. There's no direct analogue for Leia, but in terms of being a link to the larger organization they represent and occasional motivation, the Emperor serves more or less the same purpose.

    Yeah, I would agree that she's more an inversion of Han (a bad person who sometimes does good things), but the Indy parallels have been pretty strong, too (estranged father, Easter eggs, like "it belongs in a..." line and the boulder).

    Oh, absolutely. I think it's perfectly natural to dip into that well, in terms of being referential. There's exactly a zero percent chance that Kieran Gillen didn't have that specifically in mind when he made his dark Han analog an archeologist. He loves being meta. Of course his dark Han analog would reference Harrison Ford's other iconic role. To be perfectly frank, having read as much of his work as I have, I'm honestly a little shocked she doesn't have the hat too.

    Well, she does have the old aviators' hat with goggles. Not a fedora, but it does echo the old pulp adventures that Indiana Jones was an update of.
