What Would Leia Say?! A New Star Wars Comic Reveals a Shocking Han Solo Plot Twist

He was a space scoundrel in more ways than one, apparently!

Han Solo has a lot of backstory in the Star Wars universe. He's an orphan, a smuggler, a member of the Rebel Alliance, a friend to the Wookies, and he once successfully made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

But a new comic suggests another line for his personal resume: Married man.

A panel from a new Star Wars comic book that was released this week suggests Han Solo was a space scoundrel in more ways than one.

The comics tell the canonical story of what happened to our heroes between Star Wars: A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Obviously, the comic series is just part of the massive media lead-up to the new Star Wars movie that comes out this December.

A description on Marvel's site says Han Solo is in hot water -- something of an understatement, given what the panel reveals!

Sana Solo
Marvel

A beautiful woman with black hair and brown skin descends from a spaceship bearing a blaster and says, "He'd just lie. It's the only thing he's ever been good at. I should know. The name is Sana Solo. I'm his wife." *record scratch*

Given the amount of flirting between the two in Episode 4, Leia would be well within her right to be a little pissed to find out that scruffy-looking nerf-herder is also a two-timer.

Of course, as on Earth, space marriages are probably complicated. Maybe they're in a marriage of convenience for the galactic equivalent of a green card or a solar tax break. Maybe they're separated. Or maybe Sana is lying. But it represents a big shift in the fandom's knowledge of one of its favorite characters, which suggests Marvel isn't afraid to shake things up. That's either a good sign or a very, very bad one, depending on how much you trust Marvel and J.J. Abrams to helm the next generation of Star Wars films.
