OK, here is the latest buzz that I JUST figured out from starwars.com!The reason Anakin has to where that suit is because he actually fights Obi-Wan and Obi injures him...he can't stay alive without the suit so an unknown person (we don't know yet) gives him the suit and that's how he stays alive!!!

You just heard that now? Better late than never. It's been known since ROTJ.
What ? Oh dear, I was damn sure anakin had had to wear this suit to hide a hideous attack of acne...:uhoh:
LOL, good one Apollyn!
Actually, he wears the suit to hide the fact he is a whinning little snot nosed punk in episode 2...it's an inferiority complex.
Anakin Skywalker was consumed by the dark side, being led there by Senator Palpatine (later the Emperor), and he attacked his master, Obi-wan.
Obi-wan injured Anakin badly and he fell into a lava pit. Later Palpatine recovered him and saved what was left of Anakin. He built that suit so that Anakin could survive, as he was seriously wounded. That's when Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader, the sith lord. :rock:
ok the thing that happened was he was dueling Obi-Wan on a volcanic planet and obi wan hit Anakin which made him go back and then he fell into a volcano where then the molten formed around his body turning him into Darth Vader because he then had that suit because that volcano was a sith/Dark Volcano. Thats what it said happened in one of my books lol
Haha, no, I think Palpatine added the suit to Anakin...even George Lucas ain't cheesy enough to have a volcano give the bad guy his costume.
