The Dark Side is looking pretty tempting right now.
That’s because a new image of Kylo Ren, the new villain from Star Wars: The Force Awakens has landed. And it’s pretty awesome. Brandishing his pantended cross-guard lightsaber in a menacing pose, Ren is practically begging the rest of the galaxy to get on his level.
The super villain posturing certainly makes sense for his character. As director J.J. Abrams recently revealed, Kylo Ren is, among many things, a big fanboy of Darth Vader. Ren is reportedly so influenced by the late Sith lord, that his mask is influenced by Vader’s. Now that’s loyalty.
