Star Wars History Changes Forever With The Secret Mission of Jango Fett
Boba Fett is currently delving into the past of his esteemed father, while Star Wars unravels the forgotten undertaking of Jango Fett – a mission that is on the verge of reshaping the franchise’s canon and intertwining with the impending threat of Dark Droids. Today’s featured video delves into the Secret Invasion and how the Blip had a profound impact on Nick Fury. How prepared is he? How much did the Blip alter him? Well, actor Samual L. Jackson is here to provide the answers.
Arriving in August, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #37, written by Ethan Sacks and illustrated by Davide Tinto, will witness the main characters embarking on a “secret mission” involving Jango Fett. The cover art gives little away, except for the presence of Boba Fett and Durge, who joined the bounty hunter crew in issue #36, with the haunting image of Jango Fett’s helmet looming over them. Take pleasure in Marco Checchetto’s cover art and read the official summary of the issue below:
Jango Fett’s mission holds significance for Darth Vader’s Force visions.
Prepare yourself for the enigmatic and secretive mission of Jango Fett! The bounty hunters must confront the looming shadow of the sins committed by Boba Fett’s father. What secrets lie within the mysterious droid outpost known as THE HAVEN? Who is TARR KLIGSON, and what is his connection to Jango Fett? The mention of “Tarr Kligson” and the droid outpost may indicate a link to the Revelations one-shot from November 2022. In Star Wars: Revelations, Darth Vader was plagued with visions of the future through the eerie Eye of Webbish Bog. One of these visions portrayed Luke Skywalker and his Rebel Alliance comrades arriving at Kligson’s Moon, only to find it under attack by the droid revolutionary Ajax Sigma. The cyborg bounty hunter, Beilert Valance, also played a significant role in Vader’s visions, foreshadowing both his inevitable betrayal and his apparent connection to the impending Scourge – a zombie-like virus that will soon spread throughout the droid population in the franchise. It is highly likely that The Haven is linked to Ajax Sigma, and the crew’s journey to Kligson’s Moon will set them on the path foreseen by Vader in Revelations.

Jango Fett has the power to resurrect iconic bounty hunters from the prequel era.
Bounty Hunters has excelled in expanding the stories of Star Wars’ formidable bounty hunters, showcasing their treacherous missions. Not only has it provided depth to characters like 4-LOM, Bossk, and Dengar, but it has also introduced new characters to the lore while revitalizing Legends alumni such as Durge and Valance. However, the prequel-era bounty hunters have yet to receive such treatment, apart from those like Bossk, whose careers span both the Clone Wars and the Age of the Empire. The Darth Maul series from 2017, written by Cullen Brunn and illustrated by Luke Ross, did feature Aurra Sing and Cad Bane in supporting roles, but it noticeably omitted Jango Fett. If a lethal bounty hunter like Jango Fett kept this mission hidden, it is guaranteed to be mind-blowing. Moreover, since it clearly connects to the impending Scourge, it is about to revolutionize Star Wars lore by linking Jango’s prequel-era exploits to events just before Return of the Jedi. Not much has been explored about Jango’s life beyond his influence on his son, Boba Fett, and Bounty Hunters aims to rectify that oversight.
Marvel Comics will release Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #37 on August 30.
Boba Fett is investigating the past of his illustrious father, as Star Wars reveals the forgotten mission of Jango Fett – a mission which is about to reshape the franchise’s canon, and tie into the twisted upcoming threat of Dark Droids.
Coming this August from writer Ethan Sacks and artist Davide Tinto, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #37 will see its star characters explore the “secret mission” of Jango Fett. The cover reveals little, beyond a reminder that Boba Fett and Durge joined the comic’s bounty hunter crew in issue #36, while the ghostly helmet of Jango Fett looms over them. Enjoy the cover art from Marco Checchetto and the issue’s official summary below:
Jango Fett’s Mission Connects to Darth Vader’s Force Visions
THE HAUNTING SECRET MISSION OF JANGO FETT! The BOUNTY HUNTERS most contend with the looming shadow of the sins of BOBA FETT’S father! What is the secret that lurks on the mysterious droid outpost, THE HAVEN? Who is TARR KLIGSON and what is his connection to Jango Fett?
The name “Tarr Kligson” and the admission of a droid outpost may point to a connection to the Revelations one-shot from November 2022. Throughout Star Wars: RevelationsDarth Vader recieved a number of visions of things to come from the eldritch Eye of Webbish Bog. Among these premonitions was one of Luke Skywalker and his fellow heroes of the Rebel Alliance arriving at Kligson’s Moon to discover it under attack by the droid revolutionary Ajax Sigma. Cyborg bounty hunter Beilert Valance also played prominently in Vader’s visions, both foreshadowing his inevitable betrayal and his apparent possession in connection to the coming Scourge – a zombie-like virus which will soon sweep across the franchise’s droids. It seems likely that The Haven has a connection to Ajax Sigma and the crew’s journey to Kligson’s Moon will set them on the path foreseen by Vader in Revelations.
Jango Fett Can Bring Back Iconic Prequel Bounty Hunters
Bounty Hunters has excelled at expanding on Star Wars‘ fearsome bounty hunters and their various back-stabbing missions. Not only has it provided meaningful characterization to the likes of 4-LOM, Bossk, and Dengar, but it has also introduced brand-new characters to the lore while breathing fresh life into Legends alum such as Durge and Valance. The Prequel Era’s bounty hunters have yet to receive this treatment, not counting those like Bossk whose careers span both the Clones Wars and the Age of the Empire. 2017’s Darth Maul series from Cullen Brunn and Luke Ross did feature the likes of Aurra Sing and Cad Bane in a supporting role, however Jango Fett was conspicuously absent from the effort.
If a bounty hunter as deadly as Jango Fett kept this mission a secret, it’s guaranteed to be something mind-blowing, and since it will clearly connect to the oncoming Scourge, it’s also about to change Star Wars lore in a big way, connecting Jango’s prequel-era career to events just before Return of the Jedi. Little has been explored of Jango’s life beyond the influence he had on his son, Boba Fettand Bounty Hunters looks set to rectify that oversight.
