Topic: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

The subject line pretty much says it all, I just want to know how many people think it is possible that Jodo Kast survived the end of Twin Engine's of Destruction? I like to think that an older wiser Jodo Kast walked away from that last encounter and continued his life of Bounty Hunting with a little more anonymity than before. And before anyone just says that the final frame of him shows his arm limply poking out of a pile of rubble and he is therefore certainly dead, keep in mind that the Fett-man was swallowed by the Sarlacc.

"Home is where the armor is."

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Yea, but Jodo was poisoned, bloody beaten and blown up by an explosive jetpack. The rubble went and crushed him. There's a difference between that and the Sarlaac. Sarlaac slowly digests you, even if Jodo had survived the rubble, he would have died from poisoning. The vial containing the antidote was probably smashed.

And thanks to the BFFC Comic Scans. Here's my point.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

I quite like the idea, although you'd have to be damn good writer to turn out a believable scenario.
Jodo might be a nasty little git, but he's cute.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Yeah, Maybe the dead Jodo was merely a clone...

yay!


And seeing as you can't hear me actually saying that, I assure you there is no emotion or excitement in that "yay"

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

I'm sure someone will write a story of how he somehow survived (perhaps he ate his weetbix that day). But honestly I think that was the true death of Jodo Kast.

He was too smug and arrogant to have the cool calulating mind of Boba Fett. He was just a poor mimic.

Lol Boba must have lots of weetbix every morning smile. But yea Kast must have died and i dont think many people would want him alive anyway.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

There is always the possibility (in comics anything isn possible) that some other Boba enemy (maybe wrapped in bandages alluding to Dengar) saves Kast at the last second and they become hellbent on destroying Fett at all costs. So not only would Kast be a fake Fett, but his new friend would be a fake Dengar. Creating a sort of Bizzaro world in the Star Wars Universe.

ps. 95% of that was sarcasm.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

I just realized how much that comic reminded me of Saw. Horrible way to die.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

That's actually a very good comparison, I never noticed that before....Boba is actually a complete %$&hole.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Well not really, think of it this way.

In Saw the guy is just a machanist, he want to control people and see them suffer.
Boba was really just taking his respect and identity back. He was going to kill him no matter what, but instead he gave him a chance to live if he was really as good as Jodo thought himself to be.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

I was going to say, judging by the comic strip up there, the chances of surviving are slim to none.

Anyway, I thought Jodo Kast was actually Thrawn, wearing Mandalorian armor. There was a book about it, if I remember correctly.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Thrawn impersonated Jodo, because Jodo was a great bounty hunter. Everyone here deems to think that Kast was a horrible hunter and fighter. Boba barely beat him, and he was a former soldier.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

This is how I see it.

1. We do not know what Boba poisoned Jodo with, they only effect we observed was instant paralysis. So we do not know if the poison itself was lethal.
2. Boba does not rely upon the poison to kill Jodo, he also leaves the damaged jetpack alluding to the possibility that the poison is not fatal.
3. We do not know what happens when the jetpack detonates, Jodo may have managed to get the antidote, and just not made it clear of the jetpack explosion.
4. The final frame shows Jodo's arm poking out of the rubble, and while clearly some rubble fell on him, it does not appear to have been a great deal. The final battle sequence takes place in a large room with a cathedral-like ceiling, Jodo is left there poisoned with his soon-to-explode jetpack. But, if that jetpack explosion was sufficient to bring down part of the structure, that would have completely buried Jodo. The fact that a part of him is exposed leads me to think that he managed to get to the perimeter of the detonation and only had small amount of debris fall on him.

Finally, I never thought of Jodo as stealing Boba's identity. In his character sheet it mentions how he patterned himself after Boba, NOT how he pretended to be Boba. Secondly, in Twin Engines of Destruction, it is at first Dengar who merely assumes that Jodo is calling himself Boba to get the higher bounties; and later Boba is informed of this from Dengar and decides to deal with Jodo. And when Boba sets up his ambush, he contracts for Jodo through the House Benelex Bounty Hunter's guild. He doesn't ask for Boba Fett and get Jodo Kast, he asks for Kast and gets him. I got the impression that it was merely the uninformed layman that mandatorily assumed that any Mandalorian armor-wearing bounty hunter was Fett that instigated the misunderstanding between Fett and Kast of who-did-what-to-who.

All in all, I think Kast was a pretty cool younger version of Fett. And I don't think it is all that unreasonable to think he survived, starnger things have happened in Star Wars. Neither do I think he was some cheap hack, he killed the previous owner of his mandalorian armor, Bobb Feskitt, who was a Mandallion Giant raised as a Mandalorian and was definitely not a pushover.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Well stated maphestus! Obviously you've done your homework smile

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

I would like to think that somehow, he managed to survive, but I can safely say that the comic book writers would never, ever bring him back.

Kast originally did try to impersonate Fett, but not by the time of "Twin Engines." The reason he asked for Jodo was because very few people new that Fett was alive.

Boba doesn't lie, if he says that the poison will kill him if the Jetpack doesn't. It will.
Unfortunately, I haven't read it in a while. I'm probably wrong and there's no line.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

I don't see where Boba says the poison will kill him. And I don't get it when Maltese Kentaiba says Jodo was a one shot. He has parts in several stories and he is an important guy for the paper and dice RPG. The guy you use when you want a GM in Mandalorian armor but not be as unstoppable as Fett.

"Home is where the armor is."

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

The only other Jodo I can think of was Thrawn.

While those short stories you were talking about were a role playing game and two others ones I couldn't find any information on. Tatooine manhunt was his first appearance, and then the last one besides Twin Engines was a video game for the Playstation(I think it was the playstation)

I said that I wasn't sure Boba said anything about it being poisonous. I haven't read the story in ages.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Even if Kast didn't mean to steal Fett's identity, and even if he earned the Mando armor all on his own. He still allowed people to think he was Boba. Obviously the rumor Dengar heard had to come from somewhere, and there is no chance that Kast had no idea that he was be mistaken at least a few times. If he had tried to seperate himself from Fett in some way (maybe change the armor color or at least remind people he is Jodo Kast) then Fett may have gone a little easier on him.

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

I think Kast used Fett's name initally to gain the respect and higher payout that Fett got. But you're right his armour did distinguish him as a different hunter to Fett, you just had to know what to look for... wink

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Jodo was the one who made Dr Evazan so ugly....


Dr Evazan (for those who don't know) was that pig nosed bloke in the cantina in ANH, the one who says "I don't like you either, you better watch yourself, we have the death sentence in 12 systems."

Re: What are the chances Jodo Kast survived?

Well Life didn't turn out too well for Jodo or Dr Evazan very well...

on a side note, just thought it was funny that in film analysis we are watching ANH and the cantina sequence just occured, and I can't stop myself from telling people stupid facts about the movie =P.
