What makes Boba Fett so great?

This is something that I have never figured out. Why do people think Boba Fett was so great and that he's the coolest? What did he really do in the movies? He flew out with the trash and followed the Millennium Falcon to Bespin. That's pretty much it besides getting eaten by the Sarlaac.

I know there's books and comics but Fett was popular even before all those came out.

I just don't get it.

I think people liked him because he was mysterious he had the Bad *** persona about him. He pretty much was the guy that wouldnt take **** from anyone even the empire or the Sith.

He doesnt have force powers, eliminating mary sue special sparkly rainbow power force thing.

Making him one my favorites...


OH and he survived the Sarlacc...crawled out after he was considered "INEDIBLE" by the Sarlacc because he was such a ****** man with brass balls for testees.
As of right now, i'm rash free.

Think of it a a juxtaposition thing; When Lano meekly complained about Vader altering his deal, Vader responded "Pray I don't alter it further", When Fett protested with a little more force "He is of no use to me dead" -- Vader didn't say "tough deal with it, this is my terms" he said "I will see to it you are compensated"

Besides beating Vader in a fight on Maryx Minor what else do you need to know about Boba Fett? Dude is straight ****** and takes **** from no one and basically told Vader f-you with no repercussions.

Then he turns around later and helps Vader so they have a sort of professional respect for each other.

He may not have force powers, but he still has turned into a gary sue by the fans/authors.

He's the epitome of a noob.

Great gear, max level, but still dies to a static AOE.
