Marvel And Its Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy!
In Which We Discover That What Lilandra Really Wants To Be Empress of Is The Local Sephora, That Xavier came to Cairo for the Sex Tourism, but Stayed For The Astral Sex Tourism, That Twilight’s Bella and The Smith’s Morrisey Have Both Just Arrived To Tell Xavier To Cheer The F*&^ Up!

The first issues of the Marvel adaptation worked off an earlier version of the script that included several characters that never made it to screen: Camie, Fixer, and Biggs Darklighter. (Actually, Biggs goes on to be “Red Three” and is killed during the battle of Yavin, but his connection to Luke is cut from the original theatrical release).
