The authors of the Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith comic book series finally decided to tell the world the story behind mysterious birth of Anakin Skywalker, who became one of the most recognisable characters not just in the Star Wars franchise, but also beyond it.
Warning Spoiler Alert!
In the 25th and final issue of the comic book series the authors confirmed Skywalker's mother's words from Episode 1 that Anakin didn't have a father at least not in the conventional sense. Instead, the Emperor Palpatine "created" him right in Shmi Skywalker's womb.
So in Disney's new canon, within Darth Vader issue 25, a HUGE change has rolled out. Instead of Anakin being truly "The Chosen One" created by the Force, turns out Sidious actually manipulated midichlorians in Shmi's womb and essentially IS the father of Vader. #StarWars pic.twitter.com/Tsb9vhofC1— Josh (@joshuadelung) December 21, 2018
Remarkably, while most Star War fans were satisfied with the tale about immaculate conception that Anakin's mother told in the Phantom Menace, others thought about another explanation.
One of the alternative theories suggested that the Emperor used the force to create an ultimate sith. It was based on Palpatine's own words from the 3 episode of franchise, where he said that one of the sith masters of the past could create life using the force. It seems the supporters of this theory were right after all.
