Topic: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

Other than being a copycat, what do you think makes Jodo Kast a second rate hunter? Surely if there was no Boba Fett he may have found the niche Fett has. What do you think?

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

I think he just wasn't as skilled a bounty hunter as Boba Fett was. I think if Fett were out of the picture he still may have not been a great bounty hunter at first, but may have gotten better and gained a better reputation...

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

I've never read about Jodo Kast, actually, I've only heard what others say about him. Going on that, I'd say that if the only way he can "be a good hunter" is to impersonate someone and use their reputation, he's not all that skilled a hunter to begin with.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

I think that he WAS pretty good. He did, after all, come fairly close to tieing with
Boba 'da Fett (I have been wanting to say that all day). Durge could not even do that when Fett was twelve. I still despise him almost as much as the clowns. That gives me an idea for a new signiture!.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

I think the fact that he tried the easy way, stealing some one else's rep, shows a character flaw that would run through everything Kast did:  he's got the drive thru mentality - I don't want to stand in line, give it to me to go.  Stands to reason, everything he'd do would be affected by that thought process, meaning, you'd get a cut rate hunter.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

Then again, the idea to impersonate a very dangerous but very impressive bounty hunter may have been a stroke of genius.  Madness, yes, but genius all the same.  (Don't shoot me.)

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

I aggree with Ursula.  He sorta signed his own fate by stealing Boba's name and perading around as him.  If Jodo would have tried harder and strived to be a different entity then Fett, I think he possibly could have gotten som serious rep. Although I still believe that he'd be second to Boba. In my eyes, Jodo had no real ambition, except living off the fame of others and using it as an easy credit scheme.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

i read a fan fic about Jodo recently and it was brill(Kast Aside by Melinda McMahon) . but kast  seems to strike me as a man with serious identiy crisis, for example he may be a weak character, but in trying to be Boba fett he is trying to be stronger in his own mind. That's my take on it, as well as that he does it to reap rewards of Boba's rep.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

Jodo Kast was an idiot. How stupid do you have to be to impersonate the single most infamous man in known space just to borrow his reputation? He didn't have what it took to do things right on his own, so he stole from Boba Fett to compensate for what he lacked. The mere fact that he did what he did proves that he was not good enough.

If Fett hadn't killed him? Bossk would have. Kast was blundering and overconfident: a deadly mistake to make as a Bounty Hunter.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

I don't mind him, he was tryin to make an image for himself by using someone elses, if he'd lived longer maybe he would have tried for his own image and dropped the whole pretend i'm fett so i can get the big bucks easy bit. Over all, he kinda reminds me of Bossk, instead of tryin to kill him he tried to be him though, it's that second best mentality.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

He was second rate because he was killed, you can't be good if you get killed, plus he was just riding Fett's reputation, that's how he got known.

Kenobi, D'harhan, Cassus Fett, Jango, Mereel, my dog, most of the Mandaorians, Palpatine, Maul, Gallandro, Chewbacca, and many others all were killed, and they were all good. Boba Fett nearly died in the Sarlacc.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

Yea, but still he escaped, that's what makes him better than all of them. Plus u can't ride someone elses reputation and be the best, you have to make your own.

Even Georege Lucas couldn't kill Boba.

Hahahaha!  Now that's good!  lol

But as far as Kast is concerned, I also haven't read any of the stories about him, but somebody who tries to ride the coattails of somebody that dangerous is either brilliant (and has a short lifetime) or stupid (and has a short lifetime).  It'd be like someone claiming to be Carlos the Jackal.  How long do you think he'd live?  Long enough to experience a lot of pain, I'd bet.

What Would Boba Do?

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

It's Jodo Kast week, in memory of the gruesome way he bit the bullet and was blown up by a jetpack, poisoned, and crushed

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

He was shot with a posion dart and Boba left three viles next to him, one contained the antidote. Boba rigged Kast's jetpack to self destruct, and told Kast that if he was Boba, then he would surive. He isnt, and he never. The jetpack exploded and collapsed the roof of the temple they were in(i belive they where on Nal Hutta in an abndond Hutt temple/clan house).

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

That happend in Twin Engines of destruciton, which(in my opinion) has the finest example of Boba's character. If any one wants one i have a list of sights where you might be able to get one

I personaly think that the "Death, Lies and Treachery" trilogy showed the greatest example of his character, but I do think that anyone who does not own "Twin Engines of Destruction", should buy it.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

I don't have Twin Engines of Destruction. I saw it once a long time ago but I passed it up (being stupid and not a Fett Fan at the time) and I've never seen it again. sad Of course I haven't tried amazon or ebay yet.

Re: Jodo Kast: Second Class?

Death Lies and Treachery...very nice graphic novel. 
Though the author makes a very grievous error that permeates the entire comic...
