Boba Fett Is a Bad Bounty Hunter

Who’ the most fearsome, ruthless, unquestioned greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy far, far away?

We have no idea, we just know it’s not Boba Fett.

That’s right, Boba Fett isn’t merely overrated, he’s awful at his job. In fact, we’re not even sure he know what his job is, since he never seems to actually do it. His accomplishments throughout the entire Star Wars universe, from the movies to cartoons to comic books, aren’t mediocre, they are non-existent.

Our Dan Casey explains why the Mandalorian-armor wearing clone son of Jango Fett has consistently failed to live up to his grand reputation. Sure, your initial reaction might be that we’re nuts, that Boba Fett is awesome. “No disintegrations!” you’re probably yelling. But yet, have you ever, you know, seen Boba Fett do that? No, no you haven’t.

So what have you seen him do? And not just in the films, but in The Clone Wars cartoon series or even the Star Wars comics? Here’s the list of every super awesome thing Boba Fett has ever done in any canonical source:

  • He looked cool

That’s it! That’s the list.

Because as Dan explains, his only real badass moments have come from places that are no longer canon. Yeah, the Expanded Universe’s greatest victim is Boba Fett’s street cred.

“Boba Fett? Boba Fett?”

More like, Nobig Fett. Or maybe we should have went with Bo-bah Fett? Boba Feh? Boo-ba Fett?

The Empire Strikes Back came out in 1980, man. You’ve had 37 years to do something to earn your reputation. And no, being ret-conned to escape the Sarlacc pit does not count.

But what do you think? Are we being a little harsh on him, or does he actually suck? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
