“(After) losing a game, that next game is a game you have to come out and be effective and fix things you did (wrong) the last game and just show our confidence and how we’re going to come back," KU junior Jalen Wilson said Monday night. "With a loss like that, you definitely regroup that night, talk about what you could’ve done better, but you can’t really hold onto losses too long. That’s the beauty of basketball.”

Or so it seemed. Star Wars: Revelations #1, by Marc Guggenheim and a range of artists, offers a series of dark side visions - and they prove the galaxy did not necessarily need the Jedi to defeat Palpatine.

Lady Qi'ra was no Jedi, nor was she even a Force-sensitive, and the methods she used against the Emperor were every bit as dark as those employed by his agents. If it was even possible for Qi'ra to defeat him, it seems Palpatine was not so strong in the dark side as he believed.
