Sure, she had a hard time, because Zannah is physically weaker and less proficient in close quarters combat than Bane; sorcerer-types generally struggle against juggernaut-types of the same class in one-on-one battles. Although, that being said, considering that Zannah won that fight, I wouldn't really call your "utterly overpowered" description accurate in the first place.
Not as strong as hers, as it turned out.
Funny how when Zannah summons tendrils on Ambria it's a "massive amp," but when Kun does it with help on the infinitely stronger nexus of Yavin IV, it's an accurate demonstration of his power.
Even if this was true, it stands to reason that whoever her apprentice was would also have to deal with this ability when they overthrew her. The fact that they prevailed regardless, when Zannah didn't, means that the lineage still became stronger.
Yeah, that impression of yours is stupid and wrong. Bane intended to take the Huntress as his apprentice because he felt Zannah would be incapable of killing him; ergo, he thought she had the potential to surpass both Zannah and himself. Besides, on what basis do you believe that the Huntress--who had no formal force training--had already reached a "considerable degree" of her potential ability as a force user?
Since he fundamentally disagreed with the principles of the Rule of Two, Millennial would've had no reason to challenge Cognus for her position. And once again, what the hell does Cognus's half-trained dropout apprentice have to do with Tenebrous, who was a genuine master in the Order of the Sith Lords?
Gean surpassed him, which is why Gravid was literally dead.
Sure, but you're missing the big picture. We're using Bane and Tenebrous as reference points, yeah? Bane spent a grand total of twenty years acquiring Sith knowledge. Even if we grossly exaggerated Gravid's impact and said that he erased all of the Order's knowledge other than what Gean personally knew, Tenebrous would still have hundreds of years of accumulated knowledge to work with from after that conflict. Unless you mean to say that Bane is somehow dozens of times more productive in searching for knowledge than his stronger and more affluent successors, Tenebrous still leaves him in the dust.
You realize that Plagueis could use sorcery, and that Bane couldn't, right?
Uh, the fact that there were thirty successive generations of Sith, with each stronger than the last, is a pretty damn good reason to believe that there was a massive gap between Bane and Sidious, yeah.
Sounds like a shitty argument.
