How we think the fight will go


“You are just a man. I am a god.”

“I’m not just a man. I’m a Jedi Knight. I am a being of the Force.”

“But what is the Force if not a physical manifestation of the power of the gods?”

“Midi-chlorians.”

Mr. Wednesday looked confused. “What?”

“Don’t worry,” Revan said. “I don’t quite get it myself. We usually don’t talk about them. All you need to know is that I don’t think my powers come from you.”

“And you think that still matters? You won’t attack me.”

“Did you just wave a finger in front of you when you said that?” Revan asked incredulously. “I have the Force. My mind can’t be affected by an outside influence.”

“Interesting.”

“Right? It’s probably why they seeded me number 1 here, and not you…a god.” The tell-tale snap-hiss of a lightsaber being activated sounded across the stadium, and in a flash Revan was on Mr. Wednesday and the old Norse god—or rather, his incarnation—was sliced in two. “This was probably the other reason.

“May the Force be with you…”
