Marvel Comics bolstered its line of Star Wars titles with a brand new Darth Vader series.
This new volume takes place right after the closing moments of Revenge of the Sith, picking up when the movie ends.
The first issue fills in some of the details that get lost in the runtime of the films. Revenge of the Sith never reveals what happened to Yoda’s lightsaber after his battle with Darth Sidious.
In the issue, Clone Troopers bring out a collection of lightsabers from the fallen Jedi, gathered after the execution of Order 66.
The Troopers toss the sabers into a furnace, and Amedda reveals that he himself has Yoda’s lightsaber.
The Grand Vizier tosses Yoda’s saver into the furnace and then sets it ablaze, proudly proclaiming “Thus tyranny ends.”
The burning sabers explode creating a large beam that engulfs the entire furnace, signifying the destruction of the Kyber crystals within. And so the fate of Yoda’s and many other Jedi’s lightsabers is revealed.
