My opinion is the same as everybody else's: That it depends on the user. If you have a dual wielder that is always on the offense, then they are superior, but put them up against a single-saber user of the same aggressiveness, they will likely lose. Dual-wielding requires time to master and even then, one slip-up and the fight is over for the DW, which is why all jedi/sith should train in both lore-wise, just in case.

The is likely the same idea is the double-bladed vs single-bladed saber debate.
Han Solo: Great, kid. Don't get cocky.

Actually he could be cannon, his OP abilities probably not. I mean if he was cannon i could see him doing some of the things talked about, but he could of been cannon, just tone down his ablities.

Plus I love the reverse blade sith shien form. Just sick.

Uhm, I'm pretty sure TFU games, and books are cannon aslong as it isn't the alternate endings.

Starkiller is canon. The over the top stuff is game mechanics and is not canon. if you want a clearer vision of Starkiller and his "realistic" Force usage, read the TFU books;he's a lot less Force God in them.

So Maras in a nutshell. Hit you like a refreshing slice of lemon wrapped around a solid gold brick, yet still manage to maintain a soft squishy center......... well damage mitigation skills aside which you could say is a sudden build up of rage to increase strength, thus the sudden (allbeit temp) increase in defence.

I don't really know which is superior but I personally prefer single-bladed single lightsabre.
