* EightiesHair: Near the end of the series, Luke ended up with a mullet.

* EightiesHair: Near In the end of the series, infamously bizarrely-drawn last issue, Luke ended up with a mullet.



* ArtShift: Starting with the adaptation of ''The Empire Strikes Back'', the art changes from Carmine Infantino's loose, angular style to a more detailed look with much closer likenesses to the film characters (usually veteran inker Tom Palmer over Al Williamson or Walt Simonson.) The last issue also has a strikingly different style than its predecessors.

The last issue also has a strikingly ''strikingly'' different style than its predecessors.predecessors. For example, for some reason Luke's gone from a slim short-haired figure wearing mostly black and wielding a lightsaber into a perpetually shirtless mulleted wall of beef toting a BFG he never once fires.

* EnemyMine: Leia and Luke are forced to combine forces with a squad of Imperial commandos to survive a hostile planet in a 1980 storyline. While one of the commandos is a complete scumbag their overall leader is portrayed as a sympathetic WorthyOpponent who just happens to be on the wrong side and Leia even tries to persuade him to defect. [[spoiler: He refuses, using a MyCountryRightOrWrong arguement.]]

* TooDumbToLive: After being blinded by Darth Vader, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Orman_Tagge Orman Tagge]] became obsessed with defeating him, procuring a lightsaber and training endlessly with it. He also had a dirty trick in mind that he planned to use if it came to that, which he was [[http://images.plurk.com/f86a25c446b7468d6de5a8495d8aa553.jpg forced]] to use [[http://images.plurk.com/95a2c33a71edb1d1bc682b6fe26bc713.jpg on Luke]] - namely, he planned to ''have the lights go out'' during the fight. With his cybernetic replacement eyes, he'd be able to see in the dark. The poor man never understood the power of TheForce...

* UnwantedHarem: Luke around Zeltrons, at least until he apparently gets used to them. "Chanteuse of the Stars" has him actively fleeing from hot red women who think he's the most beautiful man they've ever seen. Eventually one of them (Dani) becomes a close, platonic friend partly because she fell for someone else and so stopped chasing him and partly because she went through a lot of CharacterDevelopment.

* HeroicBuild: This was very much a Marvel Comic, and the art often followed this aspect of Marvel's house style. Particularly obvious in the "corner art" depiction of Luke on the cover of every issue. With a bit of art touch-up, the "swordsman" would be indistinguishable from Marvel's ConanTheBarbarian.

* {{Badass}}: Luke once duels Orman Tagge, who'd been training with a lightsaber for almost as long as Luke's been alive, ever since Vader forced him to get cybernetic eyes. Luke had only ever dueled with remotes, but he called on the Force and over matched the other. Tagge pulled a [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty trick]]... it didn't work. Later, Tagge was in shock.
--> "…h-he didn't ''kill'' me…! ''Didn't''…need…to…! Controlled stroke so ''perfectly''…destroyed my cyber-vision…without harming ''me''…! He…was ''that'' good…! Th-that…''good''…!"

* OffModel: The initial miniseries was rushed out quickly with two artists working in tandem. The results were some ''very'' inconsistent looks for the characters. In the first issue Luke looks more like [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse He-Man]] than Mark Hamill.

Marvel ''Star Wars'' eventually ran [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_%28Marvel%29 for a total of 107 issues and three annual specials]]. It ended in 1986. The series covered the events of the movies as well as stuff happening between them and eventually after them, making it an ExpandedUniverse before the StarWarsExpandedUniverse as we know it today.

* AdventurerArchaeologist: Han Solo had a tendency to go on adventure-filled treasure hunts in lost ruins in this series -- [[Franchise/IndianaJones even before a certain Harrison Ford film was released in 1981]].
