Let's all discuss the, arguably, most underused amazing bad guy ever. Are you all excited for his return in the Clone Wars? How do you think he should have been dealt in the movies? Opinions?

Fewer lines and more Jedi killing.

I'm not sure why so many like him. I think his character is kinda pointless other than killing Qui-gon and getting defeated by a Padawan learner.

i loved Darth Maul in episode 1.

he was my inspiration to create a Zabrak, pole-saber wielding toon (Sith Assassin)



do i think he should be coming back? idk..

i dont really understand why? or how? he was cut in half and fell down a pit...i guess i missed something somewhere between episode 1 and now as to how he survived??...

that being said...ill admit i LITERALLY just started watching the clone wars series last night for the first time..so im only on like episode 4 of season 1 so perhaps thats why im lost? lol..


i do however agree Maul was by far my favorite bad guy from the MOVIE series, and his time was far too short..

I suggest you leave this thread, for there may be major spoilers, you'll see the return of Maul in sEASON 4. We first started to seeing him in Season 3.

I think people like Maul for the same reason they might "fall in love" with a dancer that they've only seen on American Bandstand. They can project every sort of attribute and ideal onto them without risk of being wrong, with none of that pesky "reality" to disappoint them.



For instance, I knew who Darth Maul was the first time I saw her. Yes, her. For I knew her to be a crossdressing woman, a former circus acrobat, who was unknowingly yearning to see her first snarky forum post. Yes, she had a cruel side, but once she met a man like me? All that seeming evil would melt away.

Any departure from that ideal in EU media is wrong, and going against George's canon, as far as I interpret things.

I don't know that I would say he was the best villain from the movie series, that would definitely be Vader, but I realize you said he was your favorite, and thats cool. I don't know how anyone could like Maul more than Vader though, other than the fact that Maul's story is so up in the air, while everything about Vader is known. Maul is just much more mysterious, and I can't wait to see Episode 1 in 3D!

because the CGI animated clone wars aint canon acording to Lucas, no, i dont look forward to it, and even if it were canon, he will return 2 more times in the future, just like team rocket,

first time durning the clone wars

second time as a assasin droid on tattoine,

third time as a clone

Source please, TCW has been given a Canon level below the movies, but above all other EU. Lucas himself has had lots of involvement in aspects of TCW, so to say that he doesn't believe it to be canon is false.
