There’s just something about the ebony mask of Darth Vader that instills a sense of dread.  Maybe its the shiny insectoid eyes, maybe the helmet giving him that glowering pseudo-expression…  Heck, it might be the terrible echoing of his breathing apparatus, sound like an asthmatic ghost that wants to murder you in your sleep, I dunno.  What I do know is that his merciless killing spree at the end of ‘Rogue One’ is one of the more terrifying moments in any Star Wars flick, and even his death at the hands of his master is pretty impressive, leading to today’s Dark Lord of the Query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds Faithful Spoilerites that, while Disney may have deactivated the Expanded Universe canon, we embrace it, even stupid stuff like Lumpy on ‘Life Day’, asking: What’s the most terrifying Darth Vader moment in any of the Star Wars media?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
