I should add that my belief in Palpatine's superior power is based on the fact that there where no other Sith with which to compare him at the time (I referred to Vaders limitation as a force user due go his augmetics), the fact Luke survived aslong as he did was only because Palpatine wanted him to suffer and his raw strength in the Force, if he had wanted Skywalker dead, he would've no doubt expired very swiftly.
yeah.. but when he was first introduced, knowledge of the old republic and the previous empire had not been revealed to us, so we thought the emperor was the only one that could only use force lightning, turns out he wasn't afterall, is htis accurate?
