Cover picture for the articleAs witnessed in the original Star Wars trilogy, Darth Vader served as Emperor Palpatine's faithful apprentice, but as Luke Skywalker grew in power as a Jedi, Palpatine made it clear to Vader that he had hoped to recruit Skywalker as a Sith, a plan which ultimately failed. Despite Vader tossing him down a chasm on the Death Star II, Palpatine shocked audiences by returning in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, a feat made possible through the use of cloning, though the most recent issue of Star Wars: Darth Vader hints at Palpatine having a grand plan to clone Luke if he couldn't convince him to join the Dark Side.
