My main fear in this retcon, reboot, whatever you want to call it. Are they going to take Vader from being an IBA Sith killing Jedi 5 at a time, and turn him into some kind of sad anti-hero full of remorse and grief. I don't want wussy vader. I hope the new book is good, I really do.

They probably won't, in fact he'll probably end up being more powerful than before or roughly the same.

I hope he remains the same. He was strong but not ridiculously overpowered with no flaw character like some other crap characters in Star Wars...

I doubt you'll have to worry about Vader becoming a Mary Sue character

People like to throw that term around a lot don't they?...I guess i'll never understand when you guys keep typing out 'overpowered' and 'ridiculously' terms in relation to SW characters.

At any rate, he probably will be more powerful, in fact he really should be considering who he is. Especially since Marvel is getting the comic rights next year...what they are gonna put out(more than likely if anyone knows/reads Marvel comics) is gonna make what Darkhorse has done to Star Wars comics, look like childs play.

But we shall wait and see.

Maybe because they don't make good stories...

"Oh my god, Exar Kun is unbeatable. What should we do?"
"Wall of Light"
"Uhm, what?"
"You know, that random made up power we just invented. Totally not deus ex machina..."

Ok...and? What stories don't at times, have a deus ex machina? It also wasn't made up on the spot, it was mentioned before it was actually used.

Just sayin'
Too strong protagonists are boring, for obvious reasons. And too strong villains lead to deus ex machina. I'm glad you have no problem with this but I hope you can understand why others might not like it.

I can and I have been spoiled by DC/Marvel comics, so I have a hard time seeing any SW character as 'overpowered' or 'ridiculous' by comparison.

I expect the Vader we'll be seeing is the Vader we see in the movies i.e. nothing will change.
