Promotional shot of Darth Maul actor Ray Park, which SuperShadow claimed to be a picture of himself

"The site and the person who runs it, have absolutely no relationship with Lucasfilm or George Lucas. The person who runs it has never met nor talked to George Lucas. So-called information, 'scoops', and interviews on the site are complete fabrications. Lucasfilm has taken action against the site several times when it has attempted to solicit fans' money under false pretenses."
―Pablo Hidalgo[src]

SuperShadow is the alias of a Star Wars fan who ran SuperShadow.com, a website that fabricated insider knowledge and claimed that SuperShadow was a close personal friend of George Lucas, and one of the leading Star Wars fan experts in history.[1] According to a Whois search on GoDaddy.com, the SuperShadow domain is owned by Mickey Suttle. Despite the valid domain name,[2] the website has since gone offline.[3]

When the website was online, SuperShadow would often post so-called Star Wars news, images, FAQs, spoilers, and even plot outlines for future Star Wars films, many of which he claimed originated from George Lucas.[4] This led to enough controversy that Lucasfilm's Pablo Hidalgo commented in Star Wars Insider 90, released in October 2006, that SuperShadow had "absolutely no relationship with Lucasfilm or George Lucas" and that the information on the site "are complete fabrications." Hidalgo also revealed that Lucasfilm had "taken action against the site several times when it" solicited money from fans "under false pretenses."[5]
