    They could do like how they did with maul kind of, Show up, have a couple episodes, then back to main story, then maybe next season he shows up again.

    Kun actually dual wield two sabers in his first appearance sparing with Silvar, Crado, and Master Vodo hen makes a lightstaff after he becomes sith.. Luke duel wielded in the marvel comics in the 80's with a shoto length saber. Komari Vosa duel wielded in the bounty hunter game which came out around the time of Aotc. duel wielding was well established before tcw.

    Woo... Look how he's wielding them too. Reversed. Like Starkiller. Or Ahsoka.

    It's been that long I forgot he did that. Maybe I was wrong about the COD thing.

    Do you know which Marvel issue? I started collecting those a couple years ago and I have them all through somewhere in the 40's so far.

    You forgot Asajj Ventress, who also utilizes reverse grip at times:

    I guess dual-wielding sabers with a reverse grip qualifies well for the Rule of Cool.

    You have around 50 issues to go its in issue 96. He builds the shoto to counter Luminya's Light whip. he uses it again during the Fotj book series.

    It's bad enough he exists. Keep him out of the show.

    Yeah, no thanks. He's just another "more special than everybody" generic white hero dude and Rebels doesn't need that. He's canon, fine, but leave him to TFU and let's get some new people.

    While I'm one of the smaller number who like the character and don't feel tat TFU causes irrevocable continuity issues, I don't think that he has a place in what's been indicated for Rebels. And the timeframe puts Rebels before he should really be a factor by a couple years.

    He'd essentially fill the same role as the inquisitor at this point, which makes his character unnecessary (baring a fan-service cameo)

    TFU 1 maybe could work if they make him less powerful and get help from Rahm defeating vader and the emperor .

    TFU 2
    No.

    Also, it depends if TFU 3 happens. I know it got scrapped, but the original game draft is probably still sitting on a shelf somewhere.

    I am going to be EXTREMELY angry if this show renders Starkiller non-canon. Would be just another slap in the face from Disney. They can include him if they want (I hope they do) but please don't contradict the original TFU.

    The proposed 'origins' story of the Rebel Alliance, for Rebels, already massively contradicts the events of the first part of TFU.

    Are you kidding me? Before I get all angry though do you have a source?

    @Darkslayer

    Here is the premise described:

    "It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes"

    If Starkiller were to appear he'd have to be massively nerfed, and the novel of TFU showed well enough that, that just doesn't work. With his ridiculously over-the-top badassery taken away, Starkiller is just a terribly flat, boring and unengageing character. Okay, you can say, that the series could have more time to develop him, but that just wouldn't be Starkiller anymore. Starkiller is a ridiculously overpowered and flat character, and I like him that way. However I wouldn't care if he was erased from continuity.
    On the other hand, the plot of the game is flat-out stupid, so I'll be outright glad, if that's erased. Note, that, although I might sound very critical, for the most part I actually liked the game. But only as a game. I never considered it as something that fits into canon on any level, on any way.
    So no, I don't want anything from the game to make it into the series.

    He was only overpowered because it was a game. LA's probably know players want uber maxed out Force powers; heck, even SWTOR had insane level of powerful Force users.

    The thing is everyone in TFU was overpowered. Even stormtroopers could withstand damage and face foes that would mean instant death in the "normal" SW depiction.

    Probably any halfway decent Jedi or Sith, if they appeared in the TFU gameverse, could replicate Marek's "star destroyer trick" for example.

    I think we should reserve judgement. Doesn't mention anything about the Alliance. Just says some guys will run around in a starship called Ghost.

    See the interview with one of the executive producers; suggests the rebels are a bunch of organised teenagers, lots of infighting and rival groups.

    I saw it. Did nothing do confirm Starkiller is out. Anyway, if they change the Rebel Alliance to being started by a bunch of teenagers then my worst fears regarding the Disney acquisition will have come true. So far my thoughts are: They cancelled The Clone Wars for THIS?
