Is Darth Revan the most powerful force user
Debate Rounds (3)
Darth Sidious was very strong in the Force. Even before he was trained in the ways of the Dark Side, he was able to hide his Force presence from Darth Plagueis. Then, he instinctively killed his family using the Force without prior knowledge of it (1).
Darth Sidious was very proficient with his powers. His Force Lightning could instantly reduce a victim to a pile of ashes, and was one of the most powerful Force Lightning attacks ever recorded. He even invented his own attack, called the Force Storm, that created a hyperspace wormhole and tore apart space-time. The attack could destroy entire fleets. Not only did he learn to create a Force Storm, he learned to control it. Luke Skywalker commented that the power could "kill planets" (2). It took the combined power of Luke and Leia Skywalke , two of the most powerful Force-users to ever live, to cut of Sidious' control over the Force Storm.
Although Revan was a very powerful force-user, he was not THE most powerful Force-user. Sidious is but one example of a force-user who surpassed Revan.

There are reasons as to why Sidious did not kill Luke with his Lightning. It was entirely possible for him to do it (1). One theory is that Sidious wanted to keep Luke alive to replace Darth Vader as his apprentice. Another theory is that Sidious wanted Luke's death to be slow and painful, and thus decreased the intensity of his attack. Sidious also tortured Darth Plagueis in a similar way shortly before Plagueis' death (2).
"As well, a force-storm could not be used in a battle" - Force Storms were used extensively by Sidious (3). During a major battle near Coruscant, Sidious created a Force Storm that swallowed entire Imperial and New Republic Fleets. Please tell me where you found this information.
"His combat, both saber skill and offensive force, was much greater" - Please provide evidence to back up this claim. Sidious is considered to be the one of the most deadly duelists of all time. Sidious forced Yoda, one of the strongest Jedi in the Order, to retreat during their duel. He also used techniques such as Force Rage to augment his abilities.
