Only 10 year old Star Wars fans think Boba Fett is all that cool. Most Star Wars fans will tell you Han Solo is the man. Better then anything in Trek.
Oh shit. I think, wait hang on let me check, yes it appeares that it is indeed now 'on'. Last time I established that the Borg were indeed more bad ass then Boba Fett. But now a new challanger has arisen from Lucasland. Han Solo. OK then, let's take a look at Mr. Solo.
I mean what did Solo ever really DO? When we first meet him he's dodging creditors like a college drop out running from a student loan. His ship is a run down peice of shit held together with duct tape and a DirecTV satilete. He stumbled into helping Skywalker and bailed at the first chance he got. He returned to shoot one ship in the final battle in New Hope. Thanks Han. Hell, in Empire he unwittingly leads everybody into a trap. "No guys it's totally cool, Lando is a stand up guy, we'll be fine"
I'm sorry but if he was so awesome he wouldn't owe half the galaxy money. He would have friends who weren't ready to sell him out at a moments notice. The competent space pirate/smuggler/whatever wouldn't be running from creditors, he would be out collecting money people owe him. Han Solo was nothing but a two bit loser who lucked into being a hero. As far as I can tell Luke would have been better off hiring the proto Bucky O'Hare known as Jaxxon.
Yeah, that's a real thing in the Star Wars universe. Jaxxon the green space bunny. Another smuggler and sometimes friend, sometimes rival of Han Solo. I bet Luke and Leia never would have had to rescue him from Jaba.
