Video Game Villains War
Creation and Assassination
Dr. Eggman creates Dark Samus as one of his doppelganger minions. At first, Dark Samus is a highly obedient warrior, heading out to murder Dr. Neo Cortex, one of Eggman's rivals. Cortex takes the coward's route, sending his minion, Crunch, to eliminate Dark Samus. Crunch tries to harness his energy in a earthen ball, but Dark Samus blasts it open. The two exchange blows, with Dark Samus being launched back from an attack from Crunch's wind form. Eventually, Dark Samus manages to annihilate her foe with a wave of Phazon. When Crunch lurches up, stunned, Dark Samus guns him down.
A New Faction
Dark Samus soon tires of Dr. Eggman and his allies, leaving the faction entirely. She joins up with Darth Vader and the Galactic Alliance, even becoming the Sith Lord's new apprentice. Her services are soon required, as Darth Thanaton, a Sith spy for the Galactic Empire's enemies, is sowing dissension in the ranks. Dark Samus arrives to terminate him, but Darth Thanaton's Force Lightning proves to be a difficult power to surmount. She blasts him away, but Thanaton reprises his assault. Injured, Dark Samus fires one last shot as Thanaton approaches her with a lightsaber. The shot is lucky; Thanaton falls to the ground, where he is soon exterminated by the other members of Darth Vader's Dark Council.
