Re: Samuel L. Jackson Wants to Return as a One-Handed or Ghost Mace Wi

The Savage Opress thing always amuses me a little, not so much because the humorous action figure packaging described him as "Darth Maul's Brother" while the other characters in the set got better and more interesting descriptions , but because some of the same people who decry characters that are derivative of others or bringing old characters and ideas back in new stories were some of the first to say how cool and awesome Savage was in The Clone Wars.

But as we all know too well from being sci-fi/fantasy afficionados, decrying and denouncing something on the one hand while embracing and celebrating something else very similar on the other is a trademark of our beloved little society. If they ever found a way to somehow purge hypocrisy from the human genome a big chunk of the sci-fi/fantasy community (as well as mankind in general) will shrivel up and cease to exist.
