yes, Anakin would a have been the sith apprentice he had hoped for had he not been virutally destroyed by Obi-Wan. However, Vader was still pretty much one of the most powerful Jedi/& Sith ever..next to Palpatine. I am still amazed when I think of Palpatines power in the Dark Side. I just wish there was more imformation on his Master. That would be cool if there was video game, book, or comic book about that history.
