Leave it to the folks at Inverse to unmask Luke’s questioning nature in Star Wars. For a guy who bought into the Force as soon as he had a lightsaber in his hands, he’s not afraid to ask questions.
Luke Skywalker is that kid from high school who constantly asked questions in class. What? How? Or my personal favorite, why?

Death Star needs two torpedoes down a rather glaring design flaw (I believe we will be thanking Jyn’s father in December for that)? Damn right Luke Skywalker has questions. Toss in Darth Vader yelling ‘WHAT?!?’ and it’s comedic gold.
