Tarkin is Ripped?

Grand Moff Tarkin is one of the more memorable villains in the Star Wars trilogy even though he technically died at the end of the first movie. He’s been involved in several books and comics since then as well as an appearance in Rogue One.

Tarkin was played by Peter Cushing, a character actor often suited to playing villains and characters in horror movies. Cushing always seemed to be of slight build. Fairly thin.

A new Tarkin comic dropped today, and this photo of Tarkin with his shirt off is circulating. In the context of the story Tarkin takes his shirt off to show another Imperial officer his scars. The twist of the story is, he’s ripped! Who would’ve ever thought.

Is Tarkin being in ridiculously good shape a little over the top or are you cool with it?
