"Skywalker is mine, Domina Tagge. But you'll have the pleasure of knowing you delivered him to me... and of dealing a great blow to his cause!"
―Darth Vader[src]

Star Wars 36: Red Queen Rising is the thirty-sixth issue in the Marvel Star Wars series of comics.

Plot summary[]

The Millennium Falcon is captured by an Imperial battlecruiser near Monastery, but Princess Leia causes a distraction on the cruiser allowing them to escape. But Baron Orman Tagge has also broken free of the life support capsule on the cruiser, and hides himself aboard the Falcon before its escape from the Imperials. Meanwhile on Monastery, Luke Skywalker is preparing for his presentation before the elders in the Temple of the Sacred Circle, but once he arrives Domina Tagge reveals to him that they have already decided against him. Luke objects and Darth Vader sees an opportunity to challenge the young Rebel to a duel of lightsabers. But Domina surprises both of them by forbidding them from battling in the temple, instead she arranges for the duel to take place in the Crystal Valley. At the end of the issue, it's revealed that she planned this duel from the beginning, and was manipulating both Luke and Vader. Her hope was that both combatants would destroy each other, so her family would eliminate not one but two rivals.
