OBI-WAN KENOBI May Have Created A Minor Marvel Comics Continuity Issue With This Week's Finale

Obi-Wan Kenobi's season finale didn't disappoint, but some fans believe Ben's new costume may create something of a continuity dilemma due to a comic book released by Marvel back in 2016. Check it out!

At the end of this Wednesday's Obi-Wan Kenobi finale, the Jedi Master returned to Tatooine and embarked on a new mission to learn how to live on after death courtesy of his fallen Master, Qui-Gon Jinn.

While he'll continue to watch over Luke Skywalker, Ben has realised that the boy is safe with his Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru and is clearly more in touch with the Force now than ever before. With his new outlook came a new costume that we're sure will have rung a bell for many of you. 

The outfit actually originates from a statue released by Sideshow way back in 2012. That was the same year Disney acquired Lucasfilm, but it wasn't until a 2016 comic book that it was added to the current Star Wars canon. The issue, by Jason Aaron and Mike Mayhew, told the story of how Obi-Wan rescued a young Luke from Jabba the Hutt's thugs during the Great Drought.

However, there may be a slight continuity problem here. 

The story is set prior to the events of Obi-Wan Kenobi, but with Ben using the Force and Owen warning him to keep away from Luke, it arguably contradicts too much for us to later learn that the adventure actually took place after the TV show. It could be retconned, but doing so might further confuse matters.

Whether this shows that Marvel Comics' Star Wars stories aren't overly important in the grand scheme of things is hard to say, but even though Lucasfilm signs off on all these plot decisions, no one can blame them for not being beholden to events that play out in comics only a small percentage of fans read. For purists, however, there's a chance this will prove problematic. 

Still, we're loving Ben's new look and hope this is a sign Disney+ plans to continue his adventures on Tatooine in Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 down the line...
