Some important tidbits this issue:
-It is reiterated that ALL members of the Inquisitorius = former Jedi.
-Jocasta Nu is still alive, and she is evidently one of the most knowledgeable beings in the galaxy, thanks to her previous status as the Jedi Temple's primary archivist.

Palpatine: "That crone could end everything we are trying to do. For you see... Jocasta Nu knows EVERYTHING Not just secrets of the light side of the force, but the dark side as well. Secrets that were not to keep. Secrets even of the ancient Sith... Jocasta knows them ALL."

DarthDuelist9
Thanks for posting it. It was enjoyable to see more of the Inquisitors and see how Jocasta Nu will present a danger to Darth Vader & The Inquisitors (since she's not a really good combatant).

Zenwolf
I see her being more tricky than anything combat wise when they meet. Or they just have it be something anti-climactic.

DarthAnt66
Full comic is here: http://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Darth-Vader-2017/Issue-7?id=124449

DarthAnt66
Really fun comic. I laughed when Palpatine said Jocusta was "barely competent" with a lightsaber.

Zenwolf
Also did I really just read that Jocusta restricted knowledge for only select Jedi? I get maybe the more deep Force secrets being reserved for Jedi Masters, because that's only logical. But from what the GI is saying, it sounds like it was more than that.

DarthAnt66
Jocusta's such a pretentious ******* to Kenobi in AotC, I wouldn't put it past her.

NewGuy01
Funny that Jocasta ended up being one of the last major survivors in Canon when she was literally the first to die in Legends.

Screw you! He was clearly looking superior.

Mendax
So is the implication that she knows more secrets of the force than even Sidious?

NewGuy01
More like she knows the whereabouts of Sith artifacts that Palpatine doesn't know about.

That's why the 7th Sister blade locked him and the two other Inquisitors were flanking him before the Jedi stepped in.

Kurk
It's so nice to see the plot focus around an enemy who's not the most powerful in the traditional combat sense. A great message of knowledge being power even if you're physically frail.

Kurk
Also this comic really strengthens my dislike for Vader. What type of irrational military leader cuts off the limbs of their own men? A man-child without any control of his emotions that's who. Even Palpatine reprimands him on stupid outlashes like that. I think to Shadows of the Empire where he was about to kill Xizor for no reason other than embarrassing him in front of Sidious. His immaturity reminds me of Donald Trump.

ares834
Xizor was a rival and a threat. He needed to be put down.

Well it's not as if him and Xizor were on good terms from the start anyway. But I'm all for being harsh and brutal with teaching as a Sith should, but yeah cutting off limbs seems a little bit...extreme.

It's clear that he was trying to push his own personal feelings onto to them with the whole "they need to feel loss" thing. We get that Vader is a miserable piece of sh1t, but the need to put that on others is a clear-cut sign of immaturity. Palpatine knows when to use a heavy hand and when to reward. Vader just does whatever he wants without any clear set of...."morals".

Xizor was trying to kill Luke. So, yeah, he was a threat to Vader's plans. Regardless of Palpatine's thoughts.

Kayce Beradun

Yoda

Quinlan Vos

Kirak Infil'a

Jocasta Nu

Ahsoka Tano

Ku??? ???ar

Na???? ????er

ares834
Vos is likely alive then. Can't say I'm surprised.

As for the last one:

Anakin Skywalker

That seems to be the intent, even if there isn't enough room.

DarthAnt66
It's interesting Obi-Wan is not a priority target. That's consistent with Rebels:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjigBxuXpww&t=1m16s

The Emperor wants Obi-Wan to live to fuel Vader's insatiable desire to kill him.

Hmmm, Palpatine must think highly of the ancient Sith if he fears their knowledge is enough to make the Inquisitors a threat to him.

There's a translation for Aurek Besh?

Meanwhile in Legends canon.

Course Vos is alive! Tbh I am wondering how Nu is alive. Her story better be interesting.

ares834
Not every Jedi is listed. Just some higher priority targets. And they may not be alive at the time. After all, Kirak is dead and he appears on the list.

DarthAnt66
Plus Barriss isn't even a Jedi anymore. She got arrested. She's in jail, probably.

Zenwolf
Prob got executed like her Master.

Ohh she clashed blades with him? Wow.

Lol they were getting kicked around. He was holding his own against the 3 of them pretty casually tbh.

Darth Abonis
Na Er is probably Anakin Skywalker. I agree with Ares384. As for Ku Ar, we will probably find out later in the series. I however, love that Vos survived!!!

Given he never dealt with more then one of them at a time and by the end of it he was about to have to deal with an assault against all of them from 3 different directions, I don't think he was capable of handling them "casually."

DarthAnt66
Filoni said he wrecked them or something along those lines, IIRC.

UCanShootMyNova
Not what was shown.

DarthAnt66
Maul pretty solidly wrecked them, rofl. In fact, I thought you were trolling earlier suggesting otherwise.

AncientPower
Kun, Exar confirmed Canon.

If only.

NewGuy01
exar kun getting killed by inquisitors? sounds good to me

I wasn't. I really don't see how taking on one Inquisitor at a time, backing off and then repeating the cycle until he tired and got bladelocked by one of them allowing the other two flank him is "dominating."

godemperortrump
Yay more shitty Vader comics. We really don't have enough of Vader!

Total Warrior

godemperortrump
That would actually be a decent fight now that canon Vos is super OP compared to his Legends version

Darth Thor

DarthDuelist9
Could happen in the series considering it's all about hunting the remaining Jedi.

Darth Thor
^ Could do both, and have it crossover.

They didnn't/couldn't land a single hit on him. He landed hits on them.

LOL @ "backing off". It was a tight space and he was engaging 3 combatants simultaneously.

I didn't realize "getting blade locked" was some kind of defeat. In any case he Allowed her to blade lock him. If you do or do not remember he was trying to prove to Kanan and Ahsoka that he was on their side, so wanted to give them an opportunity to aid him.

However he was never in any trouble, given they couldn't land a single hit on him. And he certainly wasn't tried LOL

Well, Ventress landed hits on Obi-Wan & Anakin and Dooku landed hits on Obi-Wan & Anakin. Yet in bot cases the single opponent isn't massively better (even inferior in the first case) than any member of the team. Of course Maul's better than the Inquisitors but using that very brief encounter to somehow justify the idea that Maul could comfortably take 3 of them is reaching.

I said "Take on" all 3, not "Take" all 3. There's a difference. I also said he looked superior, which he did. And there's literally nothing supporting the idea that the 3 Inquisitors were > Maul.

Let's not forget how much his power against the Inquisitors impressed Ezra. The same Ezra who watched Ahsoka beat down 2 Inquisitors.

You also completely neglected the fact that in Star Wars media there's a constant returning idea that when we have a team of fighters against a single fighter (e.g. Ventress vs Obi-Wan & Anakin, Dooku vs Obi-Wan and Anakin) the single fighter suddenly lands far more hits compared to a one versus one confrontation. Imagine if we would exclude Anakin's fights against Dooku and look purely at both Dooku's confrontations with Anakin & Obi-Wan, we would definitely come to a far different conclusion for Anakin's power level. Who's to say that this situation is not the same?

Reaching Thor, Ezra's supposed reaction isn't really factual evidence. Besides, the same Ahsoka couldn't penetrate the Fifth Brother's defenses on Malachor, you know the one that kept Maul busy for a pretty long duration of time.

Tbh I shouldn't really respond to this because you've not given even 1 specific example. I personally don't remember any fight where Ventress is kicking Anakin and Kenobi around, and they don't land a single hit on her. Dooku - maybe. Of course Dooku actually is superior tp Obi-Wan and more skilled than Anakin.

Anyway in all those fights, they both land hits on each other (whether they be force pushes or kicks).

The Inquisitors were unable to land a single hit on Maul. And he was hardly being "driven back" the way you and Nova make out.

It's added fuel to my "evidence".

You yourself have failed to provide a single piece of evidence that the Inquisitors looked superior.

Ezra didn't see much of that.

Tbh at this point with the way things are going for Rebels, I doubt the writers are caring about consistenty with one's power, just wanting to instead tell a story.

And not always a particularly good one at that.
