They just know the Force is going ''nuts''. Also interesting, each scenario still results in the forces of Good defeating Evil, just with the plots changed significantly.

Rather, he becomes a ''superhero'', and life actually goes from strength to strength for him. On the other hand, once again, it is his own ego that causes the driving complication of his life.
