Don’t believe us? Check out these 5 ways Luke Skywalker is operator AF.
5. He lost a limb in combat and kept fighting.
Some might lose a limb and just get out, but not Luke Skywalker — he gets a new hand and carries on with the plan of the day.
4. Luke completed a black ops mission before he even joined.
Before he even signed that dotted line, Luke infiltrated the Death Star, a major enemy base, disguised as one of them. Which brings me to my next point…
3. He saved one of the most important leaders of the rebellion.
Only an operator could infiltrate an enemy base and manage to save the highest-profile captive — a rebel general.
2. He could pilot an X-Wing without any training.
Luke may have had experience flying a T-16 Skyhopper, but he really had no proper training to fly an X-Wing. Despite that, he hops in the cockpit and flies a combat mission anyway.
1. Luke destroyed the enemy’s weapon of mass destruction with two shots.
Without his targeting computer. Not only was he not trained to pilot an X-Wing, but he takes out the enemy’s most prized accomplishment, the Death Star, with two shots.
What are some other things Luke Skywalker has done that would make him a certified bad ass?
