#9- Doctor Aphra

Feature Detail

Created for Marvel’s Darth Vader comic, Chelli Lona Aphra, aka Doctor Aphra, quickly rose in popularity and spawned a comic book series of her very own. The character is an archaeologist who was recruited by Vader after the events of A New Hope, and if her ties to the greatest Star Wars villain of all time aren’t enough to pique your interest, she also has her own pair of murder droids, 0-0-0 and BT-1. Of course, Aphra has since fallen out of favor with Darth Vader, but that hasn’t stopped her from continuing to captivate readers in her ongoing series.
