Marvel Comics’ new series celebrates Boba Fett’s Mandalorian dad

Notorious Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett’s stock in the “Star Wars” universe has soared ever since his introduction in “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones” as the DNA donor to the cloned Grand Army of the Republic and proud papa of his unaltered replica, Boba Fett. 

Portrayed by Temuera Morrison (“Once Were Warriors,” “The Book of Boba Fett”) Jango’s coolest moment came on the watery world of Kamino in that 2002 film’s “Rumble in the Rain” duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and subsequent spaceship dogfight through an asteroid field. He was later slain by Jedi Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) at the Battle of Geonosis.
