If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week we’re taking a look at the five baddest “Darths” from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Even though Darth Vader has been an absolute cultural icon for almost four decades, for years fans just assumed “Darth” was supposed to be his first name. Which makes sense, because it doesn’t really sound any weirder than "Han" or "Obi-Wan" or "Boba". But then we found out “Darth” was a title, like “captain” or “assistant manager”. Not only that, but apparently there were tons of other Darths in Star Wars history, and today we’re pointing our red lightsaber at five of the all time baddest.
