CLASSIC IMAGE: A NEW PATH IN A DARK BATTLE...
The moment we'd all been waiting for since 1977, where, in the confines of the Bespin Carbon Freezing Chamber, Luke Skywalker confronts Darth Vader and finally plans to kick his butt for murdering his father, the eventually named Anakin Skywalker, and mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi. As we soon discovered, and admired scriptually, however, the events emerging from this classic encounter didn't turn out anything like Luke, or the audience, expected. Instead, our poor young hero, eventually having to be rescued by his friends, got his ass whooped by the Dark Lord, lost a hand and found out that Darth Vader was his actual papa!
Not a good day by anyone's standards!
