Star Wars: Kylo Ren Dons Dark Version of Han Solo Costume

There is little doubt that Kylo Ren was trying to distance himself from his family and friends when he decided to turn his back on being a Jedi. However, a new Star Wars comic book may have confirmed that young Ben Solo inadvertently paid tribute to his own father Han Solo when he first joined the Knights of Ren.

In Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren #3, Ben was slowly being accepted by the Knights of Ren but there was still one thing that was holding him back. His new companions thought that Ben couldn't exactly join them as they set out on a mission to "find something to burn" if he was still dressed in his Jedi robes. However, Ren, the Knights' leader, ordered them to find Ben something to wear that will help him blend in with the rest of them. By the end of the issue, Ben is shown wearing a dark new outfit that made him look more like the Knights.

But wait, the outfit might be all-black but it also resembles a look that was once worn by Ben's father (via Comicbook.com). Check it out below.

It sure looks a lot like something that Han had worn in the original Star Wars trilogy considering that Ben also has a leg holster and padded shoulders. It's a subtle hint at the young Jedi trying to turn his back on his own family but somehow still paying tribute to his own father.
