Book Summary: “FORTRESS VADER” continues! The Tale of LORD MOMIN! Plans are drawn…a foundation is laid…and darkness rises on MUSTAFAR!
Book Review: This was yet another fascinating issue of Vader's series.

In our last issue, Vader found Alva Breene dead and her assistant wearing the helmet of the Sith Lord Momin. Vader kills the assistant and takes the helmet. Vader leaves the ship and heads to the cave where he had been previously meditating in. There he asks the helmet what it is and the helmet responds with, “I am Momin. And everything I did was guided by one simple principle.” And with that, the helmet unleashes a psychic outpouring into Vader giving a flashback history belonging to the Sith Lord.

After the history lesson, Vader briefly flirts with the idea of placing the helmet on himself but at a last minute, he decides not to and tosses it to the side. When invaders arrive, Vader engages them. He destroys all but one and places the helmet on them.

I won't go further as I do not wish to give up any ending spoilers but this series is quite entertaining and it continues to entertain while we get to see Vader grow into becoming a real Sith Lord. Vader is a complex character and this story adds another layer especially now that the helmet has a mind of its own.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the flashback scenes and I hope that Marvel will divulge a little more into Lord Momin's life. I think that would be quite a fascinating tale to be told.
