There is little doubt that General Grievous is one of the most memorable characters in the Star Wars Universe. But what exactly does the villain look like under all that armor? A new Star Wars comic book has just unveiled Grievous and his true face is truly shocking.
Spoilers Ahead! You Have Been Warned!
In Star Wars: Age of the Republic - General Grievous #1, the villain is out to add two more lightsabers to his growing collection. He ambushes a Jedi Master and their Padawan who searched for the planet Ledeve to find a mysterious Force temple.
Grievous is especially keen to capture the two Jedi at the temple since it would be extremely humiliating for the Force users to be defeated in their own sacred place. The villain goes about desecrating the statues of past Jedi Masters. However, it isn't long before the Force anomaly that resides in the temple confronts him for his actions.
Upon finding the heart of the temple, Grievous enters believing he could defeat the Force anomaly. However, he is gravely mistaken as he finds himself helpless in its presence. The Force anomaly ultimately restores Grievous to his original state before he was turned into a cyborg and his true face is truly surprising.
We were certainly expecting Grievous to look reptilian but his true face is still unnerving. Nevertheless, the encounter with the Force anomaly might make the villain reconsider his destructive attitude.
The synopsis for the story reads as follows:
"THE FEARSOME SEPARATIST GENERAL STRIKES! In his hunt to kill Jedi, GRIEVOUS stumbles across a power greater than he imagined. What secrets will the killer cyborg find inside a lost Jedi temple? Can Grievous strike a blow against the very FORCE itself?"
The story is titled Burn and was written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Luke Ross. Star Wars: Age of the Republic - General Grievous #1 is currently available on digital download.
