Did Anakin deserve the rank of master

Did Anakin deserve the rank of master?

I wish we got some sort of alternate universe Star Wars that showed Anakins story had he been able to reach max potential. That'd be fun as fuck just seeing him go around dicking everyone.
The Mortis arc showed us what would have happened. When Anakin reached his full potential he became something like a nexus for the Force, no longer bound by the light or the dark but existing above them and in command of them.

It looked cool, but it was the total opposite. It was not a "oh look how strong Anakin is!" moment, but a "shit Anakin is terrifying" one. He didn't stop at simply saving his friends, he went beyond that to subjugate the very living embodiments of the light and the dark sides of the Force. Literal gods, conceptual beings, and he made them kneel to him.


Anakin would have been a monster far worse than Palpatine.
He didn't deserve to be granted the rank but the council approached the situation poorly. They should have acknowledged Anakins distrust in them and could've put more effort into dispelling the issues he had with being rejected as a Master instead of just being like "lol no, ur not ready"

I mean it costed them pretty much everything in the end so I don't believe it was worth it to shun him away.

It kinda draws parallels to a school shooting in weird ways. Instead of acknowledging the situation and dealing with it, they just ignored it, and it costed them practically everything.

I still don’t understand why Vader was supposed to be this force Jesus. Lucas was really out of his fucking mind.
He didn't deserve the rank. He was admitted to training late and was by far the youngest on the council. He wasn't nearly mature enough to be granted the rank of master.

Yep.

Anakin had the potential to be God.

It's actually brilliant.

It's a satire of the Chosen One trope.

Vader had the potential to be this transcendent being but instead he grew up to be Palpatine's lackey because he couldnt get past his own flaws.

All the potential he had as a kid went to waste.

Sure, he ended up killing Palpatine but he also killed off the Jedi Order on the way there.

Its a net loss.

Vader is kind like if Jesus decided to listen to Satan in the desert.
If you see Clone Wars then you know the answer is yes.
it was all bullshit politics. Granted him the council seat so they could keep a closer eye on his actions, but didnt let him be a Master because they didnt respect him.
Yeah, and considering everything he did in The Clone Wars, he had a right to be upset. They didn't even know about Padme and based it only on his youth, his atypical recruitment, and (this is the only legitimate concern they had) his closeness to Palpatine.

It would have been less disrespectful if they just didn't let him sit on the council at all. What they did was a clear power move and showed only negative feelings towards him. In the end it only led him closer to Palpatine.

If everyone on Era would just watch the CW that'd be great.
