Which I have every right to believe, too many people ruining star wars as it is. Loved the original trilogy, hated the additions. Not exactly keen on the prequels except for episode 3.
The problem with droid jesus is that he jumps around too much, you'd think he'd be a lot easier to nail down.

Normal people can't right, but then Maul isn't an ordinary being.

cauterization from being bisected is not going to stop internal organs from falling out, even if he was able to grab something

Again your missing the point. Its not about how realistic their survivals are, but what they're revivals bring to the franchise. We can't just revive every Dom, Dick and Harry because we can - there has to be some reasoning behind it.

Comics certainly can!

This is one of my biggest objections to the EU, nothing is original. Create a new character for crying out loud! This reviving clearly dead movie characters needs to stop. What next? Chewbacca?

I can kind of understand Fett, he was supposed to be a tough guy who got a sucky death. But cloning the emperor? No thanks, just do something new that fits into the star wars universe.

I would take a guess as its the same with comics, making new characters can never really go well because people wanna always see the original characters. This is probably why(along with fans) Boba came back and Maul did too. Its why no one in the comic world ever stays dead, Superman will always be Kal-El, Batman will always be Bruce Wayne etc etc

Some EU characters were well done, Thrawn trilogy had so many great ones, X-wing series had some good ones too. So it can be done. Its a shame that some stuff such as "where was Thrawn all this time?, really?" it was an inconsistency I couldnt get over.

Anyway I digress, as far as the films show us, Maul was handy with a double sabre and knew a little telekenesis. That was it, a minor character that was another pawn of palpatine, now just dead. Let him be.

Same with Windu, don't bring him back either

Two words, Savage Oppress. And have you seen TCW? Watch those episodes and tell me Maul is a sucky character and Sidious lackey. Watch them!

Really, no one can complain that Maul is nothing short of awesome.

For Thrawn, read this.

While Maul could have remained dead, he has added much to the show. Mace on the other hand would not add anything to the EU, and it would bring up several questions.
