Boba Fett (Explained in a Minute) | COMIC BOOK UNIVERSITY

August 12, 2019


Hey, guys, Professor Bill of Comic Book University
and I’m going to explain Boba Fett in about a minute. Boba Fett’s first appearance was in the
dreaded “Star Wars: Holiday Special” on November 17th in 1978 on CBS. He’s the brain-child of George Lucas. He was created, as much as he was born, on
the planet Kamino by the Kaminoans, genetic researchers who were charged with creating
a clone army for the Old Republic. They used the genetic code of the Mandalorian
bounty hunter Jango Fett as the template to create these clones. Boba was one of these clones, but unaltered,
allowing Jango to train him his own way. After witnessing Mace Windu decapitating Jango,
Boba sought revenge against the Jedi Master, developing a deep hatred for all Jedi. Later, he was something of an arch-nemesis
to Han Solo. In modern continuity, while Boba was swallowed
by the Sarlacc in the Great Pit of Carkoon on Tatooine, it was revealed that he’d survived
the encounter. In the comics, it was revealed that Darth
Vader, after his defeat at the Battle of Yavin, where the first Death Star was destroyed,
commissioned Boba Fett to capture the force sensitive pilot who was responsible for the Rebel victory. Fett tracked the young pilot down and captured
him, but the pilot was able to use the Force to escape. Though Vader was displeased as Fett’s failure,
he could not dispute Fett’s prowess. More than that, Fett was the one to tell Vader
the boy’s name: Luke Skywalker. Boba Fett is an incredible human specimen
able to surpass most living creatures in physical feats, being almost on par with force sensitives. He uses an old set of Mandalorian battle armor
in honor of his father, which he decorates with trophies from his bounties. Fett uses a wide range of weapons with various degrees of lethality from nets to blaster carbines and flame throwers. He uses a jetpack with a projectile launcher
that he can use as either a magnetic grappling hook or an anti-vehicle missile. He is the most efficient bounty hunter alive
and has proven to be very difficult to kill. And that’s Boba Fett in about a minute.
