Darth Maul from Star Wars


My thoughts on Darth Maul

Darth Maul, at least for me, is the only good thing about the prequals and the rest of the new Star Wars franchise. He was a fascinating character and it is a shame that he was killed off so quickly and stupidly.

Maul was established as the best fighter, he finished off a Jedi Master without a problem and then suddenly is killed standing around looking confused about something so obvious that even the dumbest, lamest viewer knew what was going to happen next.

Still, as bitter as the ending was, I can attribute it to shitty and lame writing that will continue to happen as long as the masses just accept it.

Darth Maul is an awesome fighter, poetry in motion so to speak. Not to mention he is quite the looker, too. I think he is not given enough credit, whenever he showed up there was something to him, even if he wasn't fighting that made him special.

Brainpower:


Based upon what is seen in the movie, the result is not too flattering. I already mentioned the stupid death scene and for the rest of the time, he is just not showing any special thinking skills either. Therefore I give him (3 out of 10)

Physical:


To anyone who has seen there can be no doubt that Maul deserves full score on this one, he knows how to handle himself and even if he isn't fighting you can just sense him imagining strangling a jedi. (10 out of 10)

Skill:


While the movie offered little variety on his abilities, we know he can pilot various transportation devices, he is obviously trained well in all matters of the force and we can assume he is trained in all manners of other useful skills. (8 out of 10)

Presence:


Everything about Maul is striking: his looks, how he moves and the snarling sound of voice. Of course, there is also that thing about using the dark side of the force. (10 out of 10)

Sex Appeal:


What can I say - Maul is just smoking hot. I keep a stand-up version of him next to my bed - is anyone surprised that I give him a (10 out of 10)?

Toughness:


According to some new voices, he survived being sliced in half. In the comics he also gets injured badly and he is not bothered at all. He is trained to ignore pain and if you are still not convinced: Maul is tattooed everywhere - yes everywhere ... (10 out of 10)

Badness


Consider in Star Wars you seem to be automatically bad if you belong to the Dark Side of the force, I guess that gets him points. Even more so, that he will kill anyone if his master commands him and he will definitely enjoy it when he gets the order to get rid of a couple of Jedi. (10 out of 10)

Fanfiction involving Darth Maul


Personally, I write fanfic that is a bit OOC for him, but I really enjoy reading non-sexujal in character stories. However, I also like a bit of sexy times with Maul, if he is not too out of character. I think taking the time to have sex is out of character so that is the kind of liberty I take with him when writing my fanfiction.
