There were quite a few in the Legends continuity. Some of the earliest novels, the Han Solo Adventures from the late 1970s, focus on the titular scoundrel and don't feature Force-sensitive characters at all or only very little. Likewise, the Lando Calrissian Adventures published a few years afterward focused on Lando's escapades and not on any Jedi or Sith ...

Two of the recent standalone Star Wars films; Solo: A Star Wars Story and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have minimal references to the Force. Obviously these are Star Wars films so there's not no mention (Darth Maul makes a cameo in Solo and Chirrut Imwe appears to be a Force user of sorts in Rogue One) but neither film centers on The Force as a topic, nor ...

I offer this as a supplement to TheLethalCarrot's answer. Incredible Hulk #376 (1990), is a bountiful source of whacky partial transformation. The mind of Bruce Banner is a turbulent mess and three identities are battling for control: Banner, Green Hulk, and Grey Hulk. That battle takes on strange results... ...and... Ultron Forever: New Avengers (2015) ...

Since the Force is such an integral concept in the Star Wars universe, one would be hard pressed to find no mention of the Force in any Star Wars material. Perhaps the closest one can come to Force-free content is in Thrawn (2017), the first novel in a new Thrawn series by author Timothy Zahn. **** POTENTIAL SPOILERS **** Grand Admiral Thrawn, a high ...

In FF issue 250 Skrulls are said to be worst than nazis! Once they are discovered as Skrulls in this issue, Ben Grimm doesn't have to hold back (as most heroes do in fights) and ends the fight quickly. Most Skrulls are evil. They are superior to humans (which they flaunt) plus they have super-skrulls who can go toe-to-toe with most heroes. Never heard of ...
