NOTE: This post includes spoilers for The Last Jedi
Kylo Ren from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and J.D. from Heathers, the galaxy’s two moodiest boys have a lot in common: they’re both cynical outcasts who feel connected to a popular girl and think the right thing to do is murder a bunch of people. J.D. and Kylo both wear lots of black, and carry weapons on their person at all times (of course Kylo Ren would have brought his lightsaber to school to threaten jocks). They both started off with murdering a couple of classmates and then moved on to planning bigger explosions. When they’re upset, they punch the wall and cry (*bam bam bam*).
And, even on a deeper level, both Kylo and J.D. feel abandoned by parental figures: Kylo by Luke Skywalker (who contemplated killing him when he was a kid) and J.D. by his mom (who he feels abandoned him by committing suicide). They are two genocidal peas in an emo pod.
For the sake of this quiz, I’m including J.D. quotes both from the 1998 film Heathers and the excellent Heathers musical. Kylo has quotes from both Force Awakens and Last Jedi. Blast some My Chemical Romance and let us know how you do.
