    Would be great and Chloe Bennett sounds great for the role. But certain droids must be in it. 000 in real would be fun^^

    Just described her but okay dude. Enjoy the haterade. She doesn't even need the droids to be cool.

    The rest of us will be jazzed about Doctor Aphra.

    I still have yet to read a story featuring her, although I've obviously heard of her. I haven't read a SW comic or novel in quite some time, but I'd be willing to give it a shot and learn on the go.

    She was really fun in the Darth Vader series but her own solo series is really good. You don't need to read the Vader stuff to get the Aphra solo story BUT it does shed light on some references.

    You kind of proved my point so it's not really haterade.

    I'm sure all eight of you will enjoy it. Did you see what I just did there? That is an example of "haterade". Now you know

    I'm not sure about Indiana Jones, more like Nathan Drake from Uncharted, kind of a thief with a heart of gold but also a lot of archaeological knowledge. I don't Indy was ever technically a criminal.

    Probably a more apt and recent analog for Doctor Aphra.

    Are you kidding me? "Morally inverted Indiana Jones" may be a shorthand (and inspired more then one element of the character's stories), but you can do a pretty dang good job summing her up without comparisons. Heck, some of Aphra's own lines from the comics do just that.

    So, with Bennett for Aphra, who for Triple Zero? Anthony Daniels (voiceover or otherwise). Alan Tudyk?

    Full reading order to date in trades is as follows. A lot of these comics are collected in the oversized hardcovers and omnibuses for their respective series, but I'm sticking to the trade paperbacks to keep things simple. (Following some of the Darth Vader stuff might be easier if you also read the first two Star Wars trade paperbacks that take place alongside them, but it's not essential, so I'm not listing them.

    1. From a Certain Point of View anthology (short story collect set during ANH gives Aphra her own story, "The Trigger")

    2. Darth Vader Vol. 1: Vader

    3. Darth Vader Vol. 2: Shadows and Secrets

    4. Vader Down (Star Wars/Darth Vader crossover miniseries

    5. Star Wars Vol. 3: Rebel Jail (Aphra breifly switched series)

    6. Darth Vader Vol. 3: The Shu-Torun War (Aprha isn't present, since she's doing Rebel Jail at this time, but it is important to understanding the story when she returns in the next story)

    7. Darth Vader Vol. 4: End of Games

    8. Doctor Aphra Vol. 1: Aphra

    9. The Screaming Citadel (Doctor Aphra/Star Wars crossover miniseries)

    10. Doctor Aphra Vol. 2: And the Enormous Profit

    11. Doctor Aphra Vol. 3: Remastered

    12. Doctor Aphra Vol. 4: The Catastrophe Con

    13. Doctor Aphra Vol. 5: Worst Among Equals

    14. Doctor Aprha Vol. 6: Unspeakable Rebel Superweapon

    16. A seventh trade collecting the last issues of the series is set for release next year (possibly called "Rogue's End"). A one-shot called Star Wars: Empire Ascendant will cap up Aprha's story when it releases next month. The series is set to relaunch next year, although details remain unknown.

    Could see that; he did play the Fugitoid in TMNT 2012 (although I think it was more because of his Doctor Who resume then anything else).

    Wouldn't have any chance of actually happening – but Zak Koonce of Auralnauts, voice of Creepio, the likely inspiration for Triple Zero

    All of them would be great, but the most pressing Question is: Who could voice his little Buddy^^?

    And I can say just by Looking at the Sales and that Disney is perhaps making a series About her, that a lot more than 8 People like her.

    Morally very shady engineer/archaeologist. Definition without the dreaded examples.

    Aphra is an improvement upon Indiana Jones

    A lot of SW characters/plots are pretty archetypal, by design. But they still work because they have fun spins put on them

    Aphra is like that to.
