> I'm trying to create an exhaustive list of all the similarities between Star Wars and Civil War. Please add anything you noticed that I missed.
> (1) Stark uses a nanotech controlled assassin to start a war between America and Atlantis to unite superheroes under his leadership.
> Palapatine starts a war between the Republic and the Seperatists to unite the Republic under his leadership.
close enough, but palpatine took it quite a bit further than stark as the leader of BOTH factions
> (2)Stark creates a clone Thor to help him destroy the rebels.
> Palpatine creates a clone army to help him destroy the Rebels.
sure, difference is that thor wasn't supposed to go crazy wheras the clones were.
> (3)Stark has a red-suited extremely agile apprentice who serves him faithfully early on, then changes sides and nearly dies.
> Palpatine has a red-skined extremely agile apprentice who serves him faithfully early on, then dies.
yeah that's a stretch
> (4)Stark has an army of capekillers who try to enforce his will, but are notably incompetent.
> Palpatine has an army of Stormtroopers who try to enforce his will, but are notably incompetent.
stormtroopers weren't incompetant in the first trilogy it seems because the genetic stock was still strong. later on the clone army broke down.
> (5)Darth Vader beats Luke Skywalker to a pulp. Luke only survives because his friends flee carrying him.
> Stark beats Captain America to a pulp. Cap only survives because his friends flee carrying him.
yeah sure, plus you have skywalker (cap) beating down Vader (stark) than sparing him in the final act.
> (6)Vader uses mercenary scum like Boba Fett to help capture the Rebels.
> Stark uses mercenary scum like Taskmaster to help capture the rebels.
not quite the same as taskmaster was on a lot shorter leash than bobba fett and bobba fett is much much cooler than taskmaster.
