How Darth Vader Got His WHITE Suit

How Darth Vader Got His WHITE Suit

Hey Star Wars fans! Have you ever pictured Darth Vader, the epitome of dark and menacing, in something totally opposite, like a white suit? Thanks to the Star Wars Infinities comic series, we don’t just have to imagine. 

These comics explore alternate realities, similar to Marvel’s “What If?” series, where a single twist can flip the entire galaxy’s story.

The Legend of Vader

Before we dive into the tale of the white suit, let’s remember Vader’s iconic moment from the films. In the original “Return of the Jedi,” Vader, in his final moments, saves Luke from Emperor Palpatine, sacrificing himself in the process. 

It’s a pivotal scene that marks Vader’s redemption and return to Anakin Skywalker, albeit in his last breaths. This scene cements his legacy as one of the most complex characters in the Star Wars saga.

A Twist in the Tale

Our story takes a detour during “Return of the Jedi,” right in the heart of Jabba’s Palace. C-3PO is accidentally knocked over by Jabba, sparking a brawl that sets off a chain of events altering Vader’s fate. 

This domino effect leads to Vader capturing not just Luke but Leia as well.

The Duel with a Difference

Instead of the duel ending as we remember, with Vader’s demise, something unexpected happens. 

Vader loses an arm but survives the fight. Overwhelmed, he collapses before Luke and Leia, his children, revealing his vulnerability for the first time. Meanwhile, the sneaky Emperor Palpatine makes his escape.

With the Emperor on the run, Luke, Leia, and their father, Vader, now back as Anakin Skywalker, join forces with the Rebels. Their new mission? To track down and stop Palpatine once and for all. But here’s the coolest part: Anakin shows up in a brand-new, all-white suit!

Darth Vader in the White Suit

So, why the white suit, you might ask? It’s not just a fashion statement. The white suit symbolizes Anakin’s return to the light side of the Force. He’s shedding his dark past and stepping into a role that represents hope, purity, and a fight for good.


With the comic’s adventurous twist on Darth Vader’s tale wrapping up, it’s natural to wonder what comes next. 

While the Star Wars Infinities series concludes with Vader donning his white armor, symbolizing his return to the light and his new allegiance with the Rebel Alliance, let’s dive into some predictions. 

How might this monumental change impact the galaxy, relationships with beloved characters, and the balance of power? Join me as we explore the potential ripple effects in the Star Wars universe.

1. Vader and His Kids

First off, Vader’s relationship with Luke and Leia gets a total makeover. Instead of being the father they fear and fight against, he becomes the dad they team up with.

Imagine the trio planning their next move against the Empire over a family dinner aboard the Millennium Falcon. With Vader’s insider knowledge and the twins’ bravery, they’re an unstoppable force.

2. The Empire’s Reaction

Now, picture the Empire’s shock. “Lord Vader has turned WHAT color?” From the stormtroopers to the highest-ranking officials, confusion and chaos spread. 

Some might desert, realizing if Vader can change, maybe they’re on the wrong side. Others might double down, vowing to avenge what they see as Vader’s betrayal.

3. The Rebel Alliance’s Dilemma

Over at the Rebel Alliance, it’s a mix of skepticism and hope. “Can we really trust Anakin Skywalker?” they’d ask. After all, he was their biggest threat. 

It would take some convincing (and probably a few heroic deeds) for Vader to prove his loyalty. But once he does, the rebels’ morale skyrockets. Having the galaxy’s most feared warrior turn into a champion of the light? That’s a game-changer.

4. Palpatine’s Predicament

As for Emperor Palpatine, losing Vader is a major blow. Not just because he’s lost his right-hand man, but because it’s a bad look. 

If Vader, his most loyal servant, can see the light (literally), what does that say about the dark side? Palpatine would have to scramble, maybe even stepping into the battlefield himself more often.

5. A Ripple Through the Force

Lastly, let’s not forget the Jedi of the past and what they’d think. Obi-Wan, Yoda, and all the Force ghosts out there would be beaming with pride (and probably saying, “Told you so!”). 

Vader’s return as Anakin, decked out in white, symbolizes what they’ve always hoped for: redemption.

Wrapping Up

So, dear Star Wars fans, next time you watch Darth Vader in his dark armor, remember there’s a story where he chooses light, family, and a snazzy white suit. 

It’s a fun “What If” adventure that adds an exciting twist to the Star Wars saga we all love. May the Force be with you, always!
