Star Wars: The Mandalorian’s Baby Yoda Officially Exists in the Marvel Universe

Baby Yoda may have just recently been introduced into Star Wars' galaxy far, far away after Lucasfilm released Star Wars: The Mandalorian last year, but it seems like the Child's has already been confirmed to exist in the Marvel Universe.

Though it might be hard to imagine the space operatic universe of Star Wars to mix together with together with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it looks like Baby Yoda's gotten a superhero mention.

According to a report by Digital Spy, Franklin Richards gives everyone's favorite wrinkly, doe-eyed child a mention in the latest edition of his Marvel comic book, Empyre#0.

Landing on an alien planet, Valeria and her brother Franklin try to enter a casino and steal the establishment's goods so that they can bargain their way off the planet. However, when they try to make their way inside, they get stopped by a bouncer who tells the two that they're a little bit too young to gamble.

Franklin then explains that they're actually much older than they look.

"We're Valerians, an ancient race that ages very slowly," Franklin explains. "We're hundreds of years old."

It's a trick of course, and Valeria asks her brother how she comes up with the perfect con.

"Baby Yoda. If he can be 50..."

Either Baby Yoda exists in the Marvel Universe, or superheroes watch Star Wars shows like The Mandalorian. Either way, it's great to see that Baby Yoda's gotten so influential that he's made his wy to Marvel.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian is available for streaming on Disney+.
