With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to stop and reflect on some of the greatest fathers in cinematic history: The Godfather, Felonius Gru from Despicable Me, and the biggest daddy of them all, Darth Vader. This Sith Lord coined the phrase: “I am your father.” And from 1980-1983 had the world wondering if it were true. If it were possible.

Turns out it was true. Anakin Skywalker was the proud father of the twins Luke & Leia. Sure, in the original Star Wars, he tortured his daughter. Then spent the next two movies trying to kill his son, succeeding in cutting off his hand. But in the end, he saved his son from being finger tasered by The Emperor. There was still good in him. And a happy ending was had by all.

As a kid, he may have saved Naboo with a “Yippie!” and a lucky shot. But he turned into a whiny teenager and a murderous young adult. Obi-Wan Kenobi told Luke that Darth Vader “helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights.” Though all I recall seeing was him killing a bunch of little kids in Revenge of the Sith. But hey, he was redeemed in Return of the Jedi. Of course by then, his kill count was off the charts.

And he’s a great role model as a grandpa. His grandson, Kylo Ren, wants to finish what Vader began. Leia and Han’s son inherited his grandfather’s killing gene.

So no, Darth Vader is not going to win father or the year. But hey, he’s still one of the coolest bad guys in movie history. His image, even in silhouette, is terrifying. His one liners are darkly comical. And the red glow of his lightsaber, especially against his black frame, is pure art. So I’ve rounded up some great Darth Vader T-shirts. Not just for Father’s Day, but for every day.

You don’t know the power of these T-shirts….
