Luke was the very embodiment of “A Hero’s Journey,” and that message to me, during my childhood, was one that forever stuck with me throughout my life. The character of Han Solo, portrayed by the legendary actor Harrison Ford, also stuck with me throughout my childhood for completely different reasons. Unlike Luke, who represented abstinence and virtue, Han Solo was a maverick. From his earliest on-screen presence, the audience was introduced to a morally ambiguous character, who would murder a bounty hunter in plain sight when confronted about his debts.
