There is apparently a Darth Vader comic out there that is cannon for the movies and the latest issue confirms he DID have a father and it confirms a fan theory as well...I guess it works?

This reveal happens in Issue 25 of the current Darth Vader comic from Marvel, but could have repercussions in Episode IX and other future films.
Okay, so remember in The Phantom Menace when Anakin’s mother tells Qui-Gon Jinn that she conceived Anakin without a father? Well, that has lead to debate ever since over who, if anyone, was responsible for that. One theory was the Force did it on its own through the Midichlorians (Force bacteria). Another theory was Darth Plagueis, who was said to be able to use the Force to create life, was the mastermind behind Anakin. This theory was even alluded to in Revenge of the Sith in one of the few good scenes from the Prequel Trilogy.

However, neither of these have proven to be true. Instead, we find out that the Emperor himself influenced the Midichlorians to create his future apprentice. How did this knowledge come to be? Well, in the story, Darth Vader creates a tear in the fabric between life and the Force and is basically on a vision quest to see his past.
How does all of this affect the universe of Star Wars? Well, it can mean a lot. If Vader learns how to do the same, he may have created a new child of his own, one that may have then given birth to Rey. This could explain why Rey is so strong in the Force and give some fans a sense of closure about her power. I am not quite sure how I feel about this theory myself, but I can see where Disney could take advantage of these events in their next film.

I also find the whole tearing at the fabric of the Force thing to be interesting. Is it possible that Kylo or Rey use this to contact someone from the past or learn some secrets? What if this is how Rey finds out who her parents are? We have heard of rumors where she meets them and there is bright light involved which could mean they aren’t of the living realm. I guess we’ll see what happens in future issues of the comic and next year when Episode IX hits theaters.

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

It lends credibility to the rumor that Palpatine would show up in some form for Ep 9.

It ruins the idea that Vader is in fact Space Jesus. Which was supposed to be the whole point. The Prophecy, Balance to the Force, etc.

Then again the whole Disney Canon is so fucking stupid.

Someone document that on 12/21/2018 at 10:39 am, I agree with a statement Jeff has made.

Ok then... What made him pick Shmi as his choice to knock up. I mean, if I had that power, I'd be pointing my finger at every hawt chick and then laughing knowing I just knocked her up.

Regardless, Shmi wouldn't be one I'd do that to... For fear of ugly kid.

Neat. I thought people thought this anyway since before Disney bought Lucas.

Why would you want to knock up a hott broad without getting to do the dirty? Its all the negatives without any positives. Yeah, I gotta kid and I didn't even get to fuck.

I'm sure he "felt" it. I mean this is a story about fucking Midi-chlorians for heavens sake.

If I had that power, I'd make sure I felt it to.

If that's how they were going to do Episode IX, then they needed to have a Vader standalone exploring the idea. Just dropping it out of no where is going to be ridiculous. Why not follow the MCU template.

Also, if this turns out to be true then fuck you for spoiling it.

How is it a spoiler? It's in a comic you can buy. And it was a rumor BEFORE the comic released.

Yeah in a comic that like 5 people are going to read. I swear writers are getting their plot ideas from reddit at this point.
