Were Ancient Sith More Powerful?

If you missed it earlier this year, The Stupendous Wave has another great video in his Star Wars Explained series on YouTube that talks about the Sith empire.

Well, now’s the time to put some thoughts into motion and this video is going to help you out with that. Are you a new canon Star Wars fan who only knows Darth Vader as the strongest Sith? Are you an old school fan with a rich knowledge of Sith history? Either way, you’re going to love this video and how he breaks it all down for you.

Top 5 Female SITH from Star Wars

While many people know the male Sith lords, fewer people know about the great females of the Sith. This was an equal opportunity universe and there were just as many female powerful Sith as there were male. In fact, some of the females rose to power, overtaking their own masters, or leading independently in their own right. Here’s a great video I happened upon that lists some of the top five female Sith from Star Wars. One reason I love this video so much is that he pretty much picked my picks. If I had to create a top list, it would include the same ladies. In fact, I would have picked the very same one for 1st place. The title Lady of the Sith is the female equivalent to Lord of the Sith and there have been quite a few of them over the generations of Star Wars lore….

Then there are those who think it would be alright to have a bit more color in the Force, on either side. Whatever your stance on saber colors, it’s a fun little video that will probably teach you a few things. It’s just under 6 minutes long so it’s great for watching during a break and it won’t take up a lot of your time. If you like it,…
