Hell the only things that have faded into popculture from the prequels are Vaders "NO", Darth Maul, and Jar Jar Binks.

I think that speaks for itself right there.
True, the classic trilogy had so many great characters that have been integrated into the culture that somewhere there's always a SW reference in songs, TV, church, school, funerals.

Out of the prequels absolutely no mention of anybody only embarrassments.

yeah I think we can close this thread now. Thank you I'll be here all week.

A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
