"With resources inherited from Lady Shaa and the help of acolytes desperate to aid me in my work, I designed a great engine. It was a weapon, of course, powerful enough to burn the city to ash."
―Momin, to Darth Vader[src]

Sometime prior to the Clone Wars, Sith Lord Momin used a superweapon to destroy a city. Momin intended to pour the Force into its engine and freeze the terrified expressions of its victims forever. However, when Momin attempted this, the Jedi intervened and his plan failed, destroying his physical body. Momin later came to see the project as a failure.


"It is hard to call that project anything but a failure."
―Momin, on his superweapon[src]
Momin city destruction

The superweapon destroys a city.

Using resources he inherited from the Sith Lady Shaa and the help of acolytes that were desperate to follow him, the Sith Lord Momin built the superweapon as a tool in his quest to be worthy of the dark side of the Force. It had the power to reduce an entire city to ash, but Momin had a more creative plan for it: he planned to pour the Force into the weapon's engine and freeze the horrified expressions of its victims in time. Momin took his superweapon to a city and prepare to execute his plan. The Jedi, however, boarded the superweapon, their presence disrupting Momin's focus. As a result, Momin missed his chance, and the superweapon destroyed the city before he could freeze it in time. When the Jedi found Momin, his body had been incinerated and his consciousness was trapped in his mask. When recounting the event to Darth Vader, Momin's conscience called the superweapon a failure.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Momin's superweapon first appeared in the 2018 canon comic Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 22: Fortress Vader, Part IV in a flashback. The comic was written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Giuseppe Camuncoli.[1]
