I'm a little confused, why would Revan or the EU version of Bane be in the Clone Wars in the first place? I mean you're talking about Clone Wars the show, right?


Yes.  Lucas of course created Darth Bane but the EU gave him his backstory and Lucas apparently really liked Revan's design (who could blame him).  During the Mortis Arc it was going to be reveled it was actually the Shades of Revan and Bane influencing The Son to rise against The Father.  They even got as far as preliminary animation but Lucas vetoed it because he did not like the idea Sith could leave behind any kind of Spirit....even though the EU established they can....its just not the same as The Jedi.  Sith are like "poltergeist" and tied to a place or object.  Here is the scene...notice Bane is in his Orbalisk armor.

*Double AHEM* If Georgie wanted to control that universe, then he should have pulled a Tolkien and been the sole writer. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut, he didn't.





Funny enough story, after my second viewing of the end of S6, I was not as displeased with Darth Bane as in my initial viewing. Not one thing he told Yoda differed from the EU story. This made it easier for me to swallow that what Yoda saw was an interpretation of Bane's spirit through the Force; which I won't argue, Bane was a terror.


I believe Filoni did say just that...it was a "vision" of Bane...not his actual shade.   Honestly I always found Bane's design to be lackluster.  Malgus is what I would picture for the Sith that survived all that crap.


I am x)
Love Jetman and Zyuranger (and Liveman). Though I first saw Zyuranger as power rangers... Had to wash my eyes with bleach after learning what they did with saber tooth tiger persona... xD


Yea, I was the right age when MMPR came out but I did not get the channel it came on...so I was out of the loop on it.  Kind of bred resentment but thats for another session lol.  I tried as an adult to watch MMPR but couldn't make it past the 5 min mark of the first episode.  Then I had a chance to watch Zyuranger...I couldn't for the life of me figure out how that got "Teenagers with attitude" from ancient warriors awakened in modern times to face their Enemy who killed the Dinosaurs.  And Burai was just a beast.  Now the modern MMPR comics are really good...they made it not hokey and shook things up.


Missed this eariler.

I fully understand that "ritual" can help focus the mind, but I don't hold to the mysticism. Like the "majicks" of the Nightsisters, it is just the Force. Superstition and ignorance in the society have built the belief that it's magic.

However, I will concede that some rituals actually DO have purpose. Case in point: creating a Sith sword. (Been watching a lot of Supernatural lately.) It is my belief that an enemies spilled blood would in fact be imbued with a touch of the dark side from their feelings of animosity toward you. Focusing your own mind on the dark side bolstered by the dark side within the blood would therefore enhance the Force properties of the blade.



This, of course, isn't totally necessary, but it does make the ends easier to produce. Vodo Siosk Baas (Exar Kun's Jedi master) preferred to use a Force imbued staff to fight with instead of a saber. Not clear on how he did it, as from what I have read, Jedi may be big on rites and ceremonies, but not too much so on ritual.


It always (for me) comes to there has to be something that can convince me only Force users can make Lightsabers.  But we've been down this road so often I think we've worn the top layer of soil off lol.   But that is something not enough cosplayers do...Sith Blades.

Very cool stuff, didn't know that even existed. So in a way, Revan was super close to getting into... I guess I'll label it as the "main Canon" back in 2011, obviously it was well before the Great Disney Purge.

"Remember what I told you about seeking after conflict, Padawan. We shouldn't go into this assignment with that mentality," Plo Koon said quietly.
     “I get it, Plo. But if I were to put odds on us brandishing our lightsabers by rotation’s end… well... you probably don’t want to know,” Saso teased back. Plo chuckled as the turbolift slowed and within moments they were heading for the Temple hangars.

Yep.  But Revan IS offcially canon now.  But in name only.  If they ever actually bring him in anywhere it might be completely different

Yeah I liked that too, wish we had more to Bane in Canon than just that little tidbit, especially considering the EU book trilogy was so bloody fantastic, but I'll take it... for now.
I find profoundly stupid that they wiped out all of these great stories so they would interfere with their "great new" narrative, but most of the good ones already don't interfere. Like the Bane trilogy. Or the first TFU. But then we are dealing with people that utterly lack creativity. I mean let's face it, they hear "Always two there are" and there that translates to "ONLY two there are EVER." I'm not opposed to it being a custom that Sith always work in master/apprentice pairs, but ONLY two at a time is just weak. Countless thousands of Jedi over countless generations were scared to death over 2 people?

Yes.  Lucas of course created Darth Bane but the EU gave him his backstory and Lucas apparently really liked Revan's design (who could blame him).  During the Mortis Arc it was going to be reveled it was actually the Shades of Revan and Bane influencing Son to rise against Father.  They even got as far as preliminary animation but Lucas vetoed it because he did not like the idea Sith could leave behind any kind of Spirit....even though the EU established they can....its just not the same as The Jedi.  Sith are like "poltergeist" and tied to a place or object.  Here is the scene...notice Bane is in his Orbalisk armor. 
Can't watch the vid anyway, but yes I did notice. However, Bane lost that armor long before he died. But again, I had no issues with it being left to interpretation that what Yoda saw was a representation. Same with the Mortis family; interpretations, visions only. Otherwise we fall into that whole "no one was supposed to be more powerful than the Chosen One" routine. And again, been watching a lot of Supernatural, those that meet violent ends often have spirits that get bound to a location. I believe that Sith of significant...determination could leave behind a presence in the Dark Side in a specific location, unlike Jedi spooks, that accepted death, and get to flit willy-nilly allover the universe.

Can't see the pic. What image of Bane are we talking about? Malgus I love for many reasons. He was a believer, which made him an unstoppable force.

I would so be willing to do a Sith Blade, but 1) I fear too many wouldn't know what it is, and 2) blades cause too much furor at cons. We have been over the saber thing, but for me the "connection" between the maker and the crystal is something small, not this huge personal relationship, with a bunch of touchy feely wooo-ooooo crap.

I'm not even a fan of the game series, but I know they will have a full scale nerd riot on their hands if they don't do the character justice. And Christiana will be leading the charge.

You want me, the ever-kind Star Wars fan to participate in a riot? thats how.

You cant just make one of the most complex SW protagonists of the franchise with a rich and storied history and lore and make a mistake when coming back to it.

Well with KK gone, I have less fear of those flying monkeys screwing it up, but they do still work for the Mouse.

Has that been confirmed, or is it still just a rumor?

For me it's Star Wars, Marvel/DC, and Middle-Earth (though the last has kinda faded because of how long it's been since I read the books).

The books are still in print, both paper and electronic formats.  It might be time for a re-read.
