If Imperial Spy Jahan Cross has an operational number, I would not be surprised if it actually was 007. Because the character of “Cross, Jahan Cross…” is very much based upon James Bond, and as much has been said by Dark Horse about this central protagonist of the new Star Wars comic series, Agent Of The Empire.
Espionage storylines aren’t anything new in the realm of Star Wars. We’ve had many characters that have taken on the “spook” roles in the past, including fan favorite Mara Jade. However, I believe that with issues #1 and #2 of Agent Of The Empire, we have something quite different. While the Bond influences are obvious, explicit, and meticulous; I also detect hints of Jason Bourne and Mission Impossible here and there.
