    Default New Doctor Aphra comic brings back old Marvel villain

    https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Domina_Tagge


    Although the central bad guy is her nephew Rennen, Domina and her family-relatives of the Death Star general who perceived the Rebellion as a threat in the briefing room scene-were recurring antagonists in the original Marvel series, which had the Tagges basically being an elite galactic family. I wouldn't be surprised if she showed up in some later issues.


    This isn't the first time old Marvel canon has been reintroduced by Disney-the Cloud Riders from SOLO were inspired by a group in the comics; and the bounty hunter Valance has also been reintroduced. Also, the Darth Vader comics revealed that General Tagge did not die on the Death Star (He's not really seen late in the film like Motti and Tarkin are) and that he was the commander of the Executor before Vader. Vader kills him at the end of the series.

    I remember one brother had his own lightsaber and was blinded by Vader, another was a mad scientist, an Imperial admiral, and their little sister who tried to get Luke killed after Vader manipulated her into thinking Luke killed the first brother.

    I think originally the admiral was intended to be the Tagge from the film. It's also a bit weird that he's a general whereas in the film he's referred to as a commander with a starfleet (by an Admiral, no less!) I think it's because the lines were swapped somehow. Then again this is Star Wars, where general ranks are pretty much thrown out like candy.

    Jerjorodd was also a Moff officially but only referred to in ROTJ as "Commander" as well. I'm guessing it's in part because in earlier drafts of ROTJ he was portrayed as more of a Grand Moff Tarkin-style rival.

    This latest run of Aphra is just plain bad.

    I think it's been okay so far.
