Why is Rey so powerful with the Force? New Star Wars comic might explain it.

Ever since The Force Awakens, Star Wars fans have wondered how Rey was naturally so good at using the Force. Some accused the character of being conveniently gifted with powerful Force abilities, going so far as to refer to her as a “Mary Sue.”

The question of where Rey’s Force powers came from was dodged in The Last Jedi, much to the dismay of many Star Wars fans. But now a new Marvel comic book might have some answers.

In Darth Vader #10, the titular Sith Lord faces off against Jocasta Nu, the… Jedi librarian. Nu was a blink-and-you-miss-her character that first appeared in Attack of the Clones that later went on to a slightly more prominent role in the Clone Wars animated series.

Yes, yes, a Sith Lord facing off against a elderly librarian doesn’t seem like much of a fight. In fact, it sounds pretty laughable.

But it turns out that Nu has powerful fighting skills to rival her knowledge of (whatever they use in outer space instead of) the Dewey Decimal System.


Now, the really interesting thing about Nu’s dialog is that she says “The Force is eternal. It cannot be ended, it cannot be stopped” and “it will always find its vessels.”

This bit of knowledge jives with the ending of The Last Jedi, where it seems that the galaxy is teaming with Force sensitive individuals and that the end of the Jedi Order was not the end of the Force itself.

So it can be assumed that Rey is so good with the Force because the Force still needed vessels, and that she may have been gifted with a crazy amount of power due to the Force needing to balance itself against Kylo Ren and Snoke.

Or not. Who knows? The new Disney Star Wars canon is pretty confusing.

Darth Vader #10 is on sale now in comic shops, or digitally through Amazon and comiXology.
