-Has a cool design people liked
-Was probably the only thing most people liked about the Star Wars Holiday Special
-Was shown to be effective in ESB in small ways (Vader saying "no disintegrations", Fett spotting the Falcon on a destination to Bespin, Fett showing up with Vader on Bespin, Fett getting to transport Carbonite Han to Jabba)
-Ends up falling in the Sarlacc Pitt during the fight in ROTJ
People compare Phasma to Boba Fett in order to defend the poor way Phasma was depicted in the ST, but Phasma:
-Has a cool design
-Orders the villagers to be killed
-Is easily ambushed by Finn, Han, and Chewie and then thrown into the garbage compactor
-Has confrontation with Finn in the next film and is easily taken down by him.
People trying to defend JJ and Rian's take on Phasma by going "b-but Boba Fett" are fucking brainlets.
