It’s an act of suicidal heroism that helps tip the entire Battle of Endor in the Alliance’s favour, but the pilot responsible for the Executor’s destruction—Arvel Crynyd, aka Green Leader—is basically an unknown. A random face attached to a giant explosion, whose actor wasn’t even credited in Return of the Jedi. This comic looks to change that.
