Darth Vader vs Emperor Palpatine: Face-Off

They are the two greatest threats to the galaxy. First up, the Jedi Knight formerly known as Anakin Skywalker – Darth Vader. As the Galactic Empire took hold, many began to tremble at his very name. He brought an iron fist down on those who refused to join the Empire and gained a dangerous reputation because of it. If you were unlucky enough to be an admiral aboard his ship, you could easily be strangled from a job… and your life.

In the other corner is the shadowy figure behind the entire empire. Emperor Palpatine was able to leverage the Republic into giving him complete control of the Galactic Senate to fight the Empire. They had no idea at the time that he was responsible for both. He was able to grasp ultimate power and would not let go of it, even after death. He could persuade those with a dark heart to join his side with just a few words. The entire universe feared him as he could send a massive army or blast from the Death Star to wipe them out with a single command.

Although they had a mild skirmish in Return of the Jedi, we never got to see what would happen if Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine went head-to-head. Let’s solve that problem right now here at … FACE OFF!

This episode of Face Off is written by Bryan Wolford, narrated by Shawn Knippelberg and edited by Ric Solomon. But don’t let us have the last word – tell us in the comments which one Star wars Sith Lord is your favorite – Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine?
