Though i really liked anakin's alter ego, mssr. darth vader. he was an infinitely cool motherfucker! with the fist of death, remotely controlled! he invoked fear & respect & whatnot! and he was seriously intimidating! had i met him in person, i'd have weed my pants.
but then along came the older, seniler version of george lucas and fucked mssr. vader up the ass! seriously! how can i now look at episodes 4-6 and gush over the coolness of mssr. vader? i will always remember the prissy little emo-anakin and the coolness factor? it plummets to absolute zero! i weep.
