Marvel Showed Darth Vader’s True Form (But Only REAL Star Wars Fans Caught It)
Darth Vader’s true form is a humanoid depiction of the dark side, swirling with malignant energy equating to the Sith Lord’s presence across all of “Star Wars.” However, what happened to this version of Vader after he returned to the light side at the end of “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi?” Given their place chronologically, the comics never reveal this, but what if “Ahsoka” picks up where they left off?
It seems like a stretch, but with Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) coming face to face with Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) in the World Between Worlds at the end of Episode 4, “Part Four: Fallen Jedi,” nothing seems off the table. The former Jedi has been dead for a while, so we know the Anakin that Ahoksa meets isn’t her former master. However, it could be a Force representation of him, with Dave Filoni finishing what Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli began in the comics.
If this were to happen, don’t expect Anakin’s true form to be white like Darth Vader’s limbs. In his Force version, the Sith Lord’s limbs were white because they’re mechanical, meaning the Force doesn’t flow through them like the rest of his body. To better understand what a light-side Force form would look like, we return to the comics. In “Star Wars” #35, Soule, Madibek Musaekov, and Rachelle Rosenberg depict Luke Skywalker’s true form as a humanoid figure made of blue swirls, showcasing the character’s purity within the Force. If the Anakin in “Ahsoka” revealed a similar form, he’d likely be blue with a white hand instead of red.
