Did you know I have over 23,000 posts here over 12 years? Every single one of them is me not wasting my life arguing about a fandom that makes other people rich.


I guess calling yourself out on your hypocrisy 9 mile style is a clever move.

Says the one getting visibly angry over this ....

If you're gonna be a dick to people and start lecturing them on why you think that people on a ****ing EU Star Wars Forum are taking their discussions seriously ... wtf.

Vader's definitely more powerful than Dooku, but not by a lot. It'd be a hell of a fight.

And I'm only speaking in terms of power since obviously Snoke doesn't use a lightsaber.

Don't say f*ck, it makes you look visibly angry despite not being visible.

The most powerful force user we have ever seen in the films, clearly. Snoke truly is worthy of the title supreme.

I'm withholding judgement until I read the novel.

Personally, I can't decide if he's sub Maul or greater than Palpatine, rofl.

Yep, we need way more context and far less interpretation.

Yeah there's nothing (much) stopping the author from saying "Snoke is even more powerful than Palpatine", but as of now the evidence doesn't support it.

Even if that happens, how seriously are we taking that? The adaptations aren't even Canon in the respect "Canon" is described by the Story Group as content that future works are beholden to, yet these adaptations aren't. There's an entire scene in The Force Awakens novel where Rey and Poe Dameron meet, yet they don't meet for the first time until The Last Jedi. The Last Jedi could write how Snoke is the Son of Mortis resurrected but that doesn't mean it has any weight.

So, anyone want to tell me what guys like Maul, Kenobi, or Dooku have done that's in the league of taking two force users in seperate parts of the galaxy, and then physically bridging them?

Telekinesis isn't the only kind of feat you know.

^ He's got a point. Far beyond Maul/Dooku or even Vader level for sure, at least that specific feat is.

Yep. I’d take novelisation Canon with a grain of salt.


But tbh that might extend to most of the novels and comics. Even source books. They’re just good for greater insight it seems.
