    NJO Luke Skywalker has power, power, and more power with years of experience and being involved in deathly situations. Maul is strong but nowhere as strong as Luke at this point.

    Luke would cut Maul down...

    Master Skywalker would slice and dice Lord Maul.

    Luke would win. If Qui-Gon could come close, I bet Luke could do it.

    NightHawk_Andy: aldaric you make a good point....but isn't that just GL trying to make his new movie look good?


    You know that and I know that GL meant that but SW is an fictional universe...realworld motives can't be used in discussions. If Lucas says that vader was a sick old man and Luke was a half trained puppy, it means just that in the SW universe...budget concerns don't come into it.

    Yeah, I don't underestimate the power of the Dark Side, and is this case, the Dark Side is the money GL intends to make on Ep2, so I won't believe his words unquestioningly.

    Not only did Luke beat Vader down in RotJ, he has the greater understanding of the force. And this all depends on your idea of victory, of a win. What if Luke sacraficed himself to save Mara or somebody and thus loses to Maul?

    Granted, if Luke dies in the NJO, no matter what the cost, no matter who he saves, I will find it extremely difficult to find motivation to read anymore

    i was refering to the way maul fights . not like a little old man in a twenty year olds body. i guess thats just the way i envision luke fighting still . his attitude isnt there . if they took it to the vong , it woldnt be wrong.

    Ugh if there was ever a book that had Luke dying then I swear I will burn it and toss the damn thing out of the window. NJO has gone way down past what Bantam as done any lower and it'll just hit rock bottom. I will give it up all together if Luke or Mara or Han or Leia dies. Bad enough they had to kill Chewie!

    I'd like to see Luke win. If Maul won then we'd see something tragic like Qui-Gon's death.

    Luke is the most powerful Jedi ever. He beat Darth Vader who was using the dark side of the force, which gave him an edge in battle. If he could do that and not have to use the dark side himself, like Obi-wan did when fighting Maul, he should be able to kick Maul's butt. He's more powerful now then he was in ROTJ.

    Everyone talks about how old Luke is now, has it ever occurred to anyone that if this was ever going to happen Darth Maul would be like 75?
