Luke at His Strongest?

Does anybody know when Luke reached the peak of his power? I'm pretty sure he never lived up to his full potential, but I want to know when he became the most powerful Luke Skywalker ever.

Was it in Legacy of the Force? Because he was in his 50's at that time. Or was it right after Palpatine was defeated after he was reborn?

Definately LotF, unless the writers give him another OP power I think he's set.

well, he now knows at least 2 awesome forcepower he didn't know in LOTF, so i'm going to say FOTJ Omen Luke is currently his peak, and still getting stronger.

At least in force-power that is. Kinda like the longer Sidious had to learn, the stronger he got.

Not sure if you mean in pure combat though. If you do.... Then i'm still withholding judgement till we see how he dies, cause if he dies in a glorious enough way, THAT could still be his combat peak.

Haven't read FOTJ yet, working my way through the Novelisations since they hold many secrets.

still think he could do that to the CIS by cloaking himself, sitting on a rock, and floating his lightsaber around and killing droids. Only problem would be if they shot the saber handle itself and it got shorted out i guess. I don't see why he couldn't cloak that too sometimes though... like when he got too many of the droids together.

I simply can't see any number of useless battle droids. (who were always getting destroyed with 0 effort by absolutely everybody) taking Luke down.

Call me an idealist i guess.

Any problems with the idea of him cloaking himself?

Someone said thermal imaging. Show me where normal battle droids had thermal imaging.

Sorry, wrong thread, but it had to be said.

Or... Hide behind said rock and use Emerald Lightning and laugh as it chains together the entire army and fries them.

The Confederacy would simply level the planet Luke was on from orbit. Sorry, TJ, but a thousand Lukes wouldn't be sufficient to take on a galaxy spanning paramilitary force.

Hmm, 1,000 Luke Skywalkers should be able to execute massive force crushes on entire fleets I would assume. Or if they had access to a black hole to envelope the fleet in.

He'd probably damage half a dozen ships before the rest of the fleet, with great care and dilligence, rearranged his atoms.

Possibly, under the proper circumstances. But Luke would be far too busy dealing with a diet consisting of turbolasers and missiles.

i of course didn't mean capital ships or anything larger than regular battle droids.

That is what that thread specified.

You are of course correct in your above quote if the actual entire CIS was involved, but I meant all along, all the regular battle droids WITHIN the CIS, as specified by the thread.

ummm... the regular battle droids were clearly not getting smarter in ROTS. Ditto for the Super Battle droids. They were getting stupider by the minute on the big screen.

well, luke improves significantly for many many years after the events of DE. DE luke isn't even quite on the level of JA Luke. JA luke gets challenged by Gantoris (i think that was his name) gets owned by KYP, (Albeit Aided by Kun), and eventually is rescued by the students from his academy.

Either NJO Luke, LOTF luke, or FOTJ Luke would have to be considered peak at this time, but certainly nothing before those times.

Thats what Obi Wan says in ROTS. Merely quoting.

Space ship droids (actual spaceships) and later Buzz droids.

edit: Oddly, he also notes that the Republic is losing the war, and that hundreds of systems have been taken. I assume however that his musings have been retconned in the face of... all the CW cartoons.
