What Type of Hero do you Prefer? the Han Solo type? Luke Skywalker type? or Princess Leia type?

Author

Since this is about the original trilogy, this is an opinion question for everyone: what type of hero do you feel you most gravitate to? The scoundrel wreckless, ladies-man charmer Han Solo type hero? or do you like the more kind-hearted, combative, sensitive but tough Princess Leia type hero? or lastly, the nerdy, force-oriented, passive, somewhat stubborn Luke Skywalker type? Which one and why?

I will say: I see myself or have always gravitated toward the Han Solo type hero. He reminds me of a John Wayne/Clint Eastwood badass type but in outer space and he seems to be a smooth talker who always gets the girl.

Which one do you feel your most like or do you gravitate to? Why?

The heroes never did anything for me, but if I had to choose one, I’d go for the princess. Back in the day, Carrie Fisher was really something special to look at.

Leia ruled! I still choose Han but Leia was totally awesome! I think I like her better than Luke to be honest! And Chewey is cool too! Good answer!

That’s not what the question is. Unless you just like looking at yourself in the mirror or something.

Thanks TV’s Frink. While I did commend Slavicuss on his answer to my question…you are correct. There is more depth to the heroes than looks. Good call! What hero are you most like or do you gravitate to TV’s Frink?

I’m the only hero I need.

I always thought Owen had good common sense. Luke should have listened to him.

Might have had a profitable moisture farm and could have retired to a proper tropical island.

Luke was a crybaby! He didn’t listen to Owen like you mentioned, he whined and questioned Yoda’s teaching, and even though this site has to do with the original trilogy, Luke was a coward in the new film…episode 8. Kylo Ren was his student and when he turned evil, Luke turned his back on the the Jedi! I mean…come on, Vader was Obi-Wan’s student and Obi-Wan didn’t turn his back on the Jedi! I liked Luke the least out of all of them.

Welp, guess I don’t need to bother with this thread anymore.

And I’m guessing you weren’t born in 1969.

I wasn’t born in 1969. I chose 69, 'cause ya know? The sexual position. Heh heh. I’m a dork. Why do you ask?
And also, why not bother with my thread? Did I say something offensive?

I guess I’m a weirdo who likes Luke’s character more than Han’s in all of the movies. His character is so relatable, while Han is really cool but not so relatable.

True…I didn’t hate Luke and you’re not weird! I just didn’t think Luke held heroic qualities. It drove me nuts every time Yoda tried teaching him something on Dagobah and he would 2nd guess him! I mean…come on…Luke, he’s a Jedi Master! Shut up and listen to him!

Cool picture! What is it of? Did my thread offend you or something? Why do you care if I was born in 1969 or not? Why did you say you don’t want to bother with my thread. Sorry if I sound dumb. I guess I’m not getting your humor.

Yes, he made a mistake but he got back on the correct path. That’s one of the main themes of the movie.

He thought that what you said was obvious. Remember that guy who said “the planet’s one big city” in TPM? That is what the picture is of.

This is a Star Wars site Snooker, I don’t have to “get out” as the guy in your black and white picture is motioning. So, I’ve never seen the movie he posted! Sue me! Hehe! I’m sure I’d enjoy it. There are people out there that haven’t seen certain films.

No need to be so hasty. He posted before your post, so it’s an understandable mistake.

I don’t know how I wound up in your “bad” graces in the first place! You never answered that question. All I did was post about Star Wars heroes and suddenly, me not having been born in 1969 seemed to piss you off! Hehe. It’s ok Dude! Chill out.

I guess I’m glad I’m in your good graces. Sorry I wasn’t born in the year you like.
