Galen Marek, pronounced /ɡeɪlən ˈmæɹɛk/ and codenamed Starkiller, was a male Human apprentice of the Sith Lord Darth Vader. A powerful Force-user who lived during the era of the Galactic Empire, Marek originated from the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk as the sole offspring of two Jedi Knights—Mallie ...read more.
I can't see how Galen Marek isn't the most powerful sith and jedi of all time. He beat both Sidious and Vader one after the other and if he was evil and lived on then all the future heroes starting from Star Wars: A New Hope to Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi would've fallen and he would've taken over the whole galaxy! The only sith that matches him would be the very first Sith Lord who was known to have skin that can't be penetrated by mere blasters.
Why do people keep saying that he lost to Darth Sidious? I am honestly super confused with that. Play the game for crying out loud, Sidious only killed Marek because Marek was willing to sacrifice himself to save the rebel leaders. Also, why is Darth Vader above this guy? Even though some people may have doubts of Marek beating Sidious, there is no doubt he beat Vader pretty damn badly. Galen no doubt deserves to be #1.
the guy pwned
i hate how they killed him
he was easily the best jedi or sith ever
i mean, he took out vader AND palpatine!
totally should have lived
yes imma biased but he could beat revan with one hand behind his back!
if he turned to the dark side, he would have killedn Obi-Wan, turn Luke into his apprentice and kill Palpatine and rule the galaxy right afterwards, plus in the light side he is also the most powerful Jedi in all of star wars
Ok I can't believe he isn't number 1! I mean the guy ripped a star destroyer out of the sky without any help, when unleashing his full power he is nearly invincible, beat Darth Vader and Darth Sidious showing him standing over sidious all mighty and stuff, easily the most powerful force user and blademaster as seen when he is unleashed! The guy was more powerful than anyone even Marka Ragnos who was basically the god of sith! His power equaled estimating around 10 yodas when using his full potential since Yoda had to struggle a little bit lifting an X-Wing when training Luke Skywalker. People have to get the facts straight and look Marek up. You will be suprised! Even Sidious said it himself "He was more powerful than ever... " so tag along people.
Even thigh he himself was very powerful, his clone was even better. He took out war droids all the time. Two sabers, more powerful force attacks, and get this his lightning and repulse could cause people to disintegrate. Plus he has special saber crystals for everything. From corrosion to flames.
Galen marek had the potential to be the most powerful force user in history (wookipedia) he was able to pull a star destroyer right out of the sky without any help when Lukeskywalkers entire Jedi order could only pull 20 out of the sky which means he is as powerful as 50 Jedi (do the math 1000 divided by 20 equals 50) and finally was able to beat both darth sidious and vader and would have killed them had gen. Rham Kota not stopped him
I agree. He beat everyone who came across his path. The Emperor, Vader TWICE, Proxy in all his training modes, ripped a Super Star Destroyer from orbit and slammed it into a planet, and when he was revived as a clone, became even stronger with his control of the force AND use of the lightsaber. He SO should be number 1!
Defeated multiple Jedi masters was trained by Darth Vader defeated him but spared him in the end nearly defeated Darth Sidious fought more elite foot soldiers than anyone ever in Star Wars history pulled a star destroyer out of orbit and crashed it into a planet a feat no other has accomplished and did this all at the age of 17
Galen Marek is easilly the most powerful sith or force user in Jedi and Sith history. He was able to decimate countless imperial armies by himself, not to mention he defeated Rahm Kota, Kazdan Paratus, Maris Brood, and the Emperor and darth vader SINGLEHANDEDLY. Hell, he even managed to overwhelm Shaak Ti and his former master Darth Vader in lightsaber combat, both of whom were two of the greatest duelists of their time. Also, Marek was able to defeat PROXY's training modules replicating some legendary duelists such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. He was even able to telekinetically grip and change the direction of a falling Imperial I-class Star Destroyer and force it to the ground. And let's not forget Starkiller, the codename given to a clone of the late Galen Marek, who was said to be even more powerful than the original Marek was.
Galen Marek is probably number two or three, this is pathetic that he's nr. 9, I mean come on. The dude ripped a stardestroyer from the sky, killed more Jedi and Sith than anybody in his era, all strong opponents mind you.
Galen MArek is a beast! He never lost a battle in his life and at the age of 17, he managed to beat both Vader and Sidious on equal footing. Sidious fanboys may disagree but the truth is the truth. "In the end, only two known beings have been unambiguously capable of seriously combating Darth Sidious on equal terms without aid: Yoda and Galen Marek. " (Taken from wookiepedia on Darth Sidious's page) Yeah so sorry Sidious fanboys, your precious ugly old man got pwnd by the most powerful force sensitive ever known.
Seriously? Marek after Maul, Sidious and Vader? The guy destroyed both Sidous and Vader (and Maul was already dead). He was the only known practitioner of Sith Seeker and one of the few to use Sith Storm. A bonus mind you-he never finished his Jedi training, how much more powerful would he have been if he had.
Even as a child, Marek was able to pull Vader's light saber from his grip and while still an apprentice was able to beat Vader and battle Sidious to a draw. He also crossed from Sith to Jedi and back again and retained his powers. Marek definitely ranks above Vader and could arguably be ranked above Sidious. Because of the divide one of the most intriguing and tragic of all the Siths.
Star Killer deserves a live action spin off movie, and is one of the coolest and most powerful Sith / Jedi that ever existed. He did Vader's dirty work of killing off the rest of the few Jedi hidden around other planets and nearly killed his own master.
Pulled down a star destroyer, for one. And why is he below Vader? He is capable of killing Vader. He went toe to toe with Sidius. Killed numerous Jedi. He pulled Vader's lightsaber out of his hand as a kid! Vader thought he was a full fledged Jedi and he didn't even have training at the time! That's just a few of his feats. This makes him one of the best dark side users, or even force users in general, ever.
He wasn't really a sith. More of a dark jedi in the first half and a jedi in the second half. - Therandom
Tore a Star Destroyer from the sky with the force, killed many SURVIVORS of the extinction of Jedi after Order 66, mastered many force powers, and had the ability to defeat Darth Vader and Darth Sidious
All in all, starkiller would kill anything he was pointed at and I mean anything. From Gorog to Sith Emperor. Vader and Sidious feared, Sidious more because he knew what starkiller could become. Although Vader trained marek, I don't think even he knew what he would create.
For one thing he defeated three Jedi masters and Vader and Sidious themselves. And what adds to a army of storm troopers. And he pulled down a star destroyer from space.
He was Vader's final apprentice. He killed Shaak Ti and blinded Rahm. Then, he turned around and created the rebellion
He defeated Vader and sidious and pulled a star destroyer out of the sky on his own... How the hell are sidious and Vader higher?
He grew in his abilities over such a short period of time. By the time he died, he did not show any sign of a halt in his abilities and power.
Trained in the ways of the sith and jedi teachings you can believe he is a real threat having defeated darth vader and the emperor and countless more in one story arc/video game. Starkiller revitialized what it means to use the force and be a star wars fan.
As young as he was, he was able to defeat his master, the master of his master, and any Sith or a Jedi. He had powerful abilities and very good saber skills.
