So I was just browsing and apparently Luke is ridiculously powerful.

Now I used to read Star Wars novels a long time ago and I don't remember that Luke had all this craziness going on. Can someone explain what makes him so powerful? What abilities does he have? How did he become the Super Man of the force? Doesn't have to be long but a short summary would be nice.

The Chosen One (Anakin Skywalker) was to become the most powerful Force user to ever exist. His son (Luke Skywalker) inherited his father's potential and realized it. But before he reached that point, he had collected several Holocrons that allowed him to learn from some of the greatest and wisest Jedi to exist. He became a master of the lightsaber and a master of the Light Side of the Force.

I encourage you to check out his wiki page and brush up on what you know.

As I see it, actually Luck is The Chosen One; Mace himself in ROTS raises the question that the prophecy might have been misread. Anakin wasn't The Chosen One. Luke was. And hence, yeah, he is ridiculously powerful.

No Anakin was the Chosen One, he just never reached his full potential. Luke meanwhile had Anakin's potential being his son and reached it.

Disagree. First off; the prophecy had nothing to do with someone reaching his full potential, but about someone restoring balance. And why have Mace say the line about the prophecy possibly being misinterpreted? That line was put in movie for a reason. And if Anakin had been the Chosen One, he would exactly had brought balance.
But it was Luke who brought balance. = prophecy misread = Luke was the Chosen One.

The potential wasn't the main point in being the Chosen One. The Chosen One, has immense power that is being the most powerful force user ever that no one else could ever attain. The main point of the Chosen One, was defeating the Sith and he did that by killing Palpatine thus he was the Chosen One.

What I am merely stating here is, that Luke reached what Anakin could have reached if he had stayed a Jedi.

Anakin= Destroyed the Sith, but didn't reach his potential however he was still the Chosen One.

Luke= Rebuilt the Jedi Order and reached what his father could have been. But that doesn't make him the Chosen One, it just means he reached and gained immense power.

Well, I've always said that whatever George Lucas says re Star Wars must be the case. So I will have to accept that in this case, too. I didn't know George had explicit confirmed that Anakin was the chosen one.
I still maintain though that it would make more sense to see Luke as the Chosen One, and that George is becoming less and less coherent.

No, you are wrong.

Anakin was always the Chosen One, even as Darth Vader, but it took his son Luke to redeem him and be the catalyst for Anakin fulfilling the prophecy, which was to end the Banite line of Sith Lords who had unbalanced the force, they themselves were established by the Sith'Ari Darth Bane and his 'Rule of Two', it is believed the greatest of the Sith's events happened a decade before the Phantom Menace when apparently Sidious and his master enacted a ritual to create another being of unlimited power, basically another Sith'Ari.

The Force counter-attacked the Sith's corrupted powerplay and created the Chosen One, who was destined to destroy the Sith Lords, the Sith had unbalanced the force with the immense shift in Dark Side power, that clouded the Jedi's powers, Anakin ends this when he kills himself and the Emperor, ending the Sith threat.
