Luke Skywalker nearly died while Darth Sidious tortured him with Force lightning. Force lightning was an offensive technique which involved a discharge of electrical energy from the practitioner's hands  and was capable of inflicting severe pain on the target of this attack as well as possible disfigurement.
Force lightning occurred in at least four colors ; blue,  green,  yellow,  and red. With his powers amplified by a Force dyad, Sidious unleashed a storm of Force lightning upon his enemies on Exegol. A Jedi and Sith could deflect the lightning with a lightsaber ; a powerful Jedi Mastersuch as Yoda was capable of deflecting the attack using Force deflection  but only for a short while and with immense effort. In Rey's case, the force of his own reflected lightning Lightning Hands what ultimately destroyed Sidious.
Other dark side wielders besides the Sith were able to harness the ability. Mother Talzin conjured her own version of Force lightning that was powerful enough to block Sidious' lightning. Snoke's use of Force lightning varied from previous practitioners as he projected energy against the floor, causing it to bounce upward and knock the target off their feet. In some cases, the intensity of Force lightning was so high that the victim's skeletal system glowed and could be seen Lightning Hands his or her skin—as demonstrated with Mace Windu  —or even through heavy armor.
Although its use was officially forbidden by the Jedi Order light-siders like the Jedi could also use this power. Dooku, during his time as a member of the Jedi Order, utilized it spontaneously during a painful Force vision to kill some Presagers of Hakoteiwithout any known prior training  and also used it on Shenda Mol to save his Padawan Qui-Gon Jinn whilst on Numidian Prime.
Rey briefly unleashed a blast of Force Lightning on a First Order transport she believed was carrying Chewbacca on Pasaana while she and Kylo Ren were both trying to bring the transport to themselves with the Force, and in her anger, she accidentally unleashed lightning upon it, destroying it immediately.
A variant of the ability, known as chain lightninginvolved a burst of lightning that would spread from the first target to those around them. Another variant used by Sidious was the power Dark Auraa miniature storm of malevolent Force energy and lightning surrounding its producer that tortured and slowed the movement of all caught within its radius.
There has been a debate Lightning Hands the consequences of Force lightning in an individual. In Revenge of the Sithafter having been bested by Mace Windu, Darth Sidious uses Force lightning against the Jedi Masterwho repels it with his lightsaber, deflecting it on Sidious and disfiguring and scarring the Sith Lord 's body. In his mind, it was Sidious' own fault that his disfigurement took place, assuming that he overexerted himself, causing the Force lightning's voltage to be higher unlike when he later attacked Skywalker.

Well worth the read. Tesla's contributions through his inventions are amazing toay although he was more than years ahead of his time. What a great mind! I was unaware that he had such an impact on our country. In spite of previous comments, after twice reading Lightning in His Hand over the last 20 years, I find it to be the best available biography on Nikola Tesla.
Neither Inez Hunt or Wanetta Draper pretend to be technical experts regarding electrical theory or electrical engineering. The life of Tesla is told chronologically from his early childhood in Smiljan, Croatia.
The human side of this brilliant scientist and inventor unfolds poignantly and beautifully,with particular emphasis on his electrical experiments in Colorado at the beginning of the 20th century. Also included in this new edition are previously Lightning Hands photographs provided by the Tesla Museum in Belgrade. Margaret Cheney, author of "Tesla: Man Out of Time", wrote to Inez Hunt in the early s, praising "Lightning in His Hand", stating that she could never have written her book on Tesla without having Lightning's superb documentation, and praised Mrs.
Hunt for having produced a book "beautifully written. You will not be disappointed, and will come to know Tesla intimately, Lightning Hands. This book shine extra light on the life of Tesla. Nikola Tesla's life makes for interesting reading, and the best you can say about this book is that it has an interesting subject.
Oh, and it has a nice front cover. If this book is the only one you read on Tesla, that's a pity, because this is a very bad book, being poorly written, organized, and edited. The authors clearly have almost no grasp of Tesla's technical accomplishments, but they don't let this stop them from attempting to cover them. The result are discussions of Tesla's inventions that are so vague and confusing that it's often hard to understand what the big deal is, or so obviously inaccurate as to be worse than useless.
Or often, both. If that's not enough, even on non-technical details they are also prone to repeating themselves, to leaving obvious questions unanswered, and wandering from one topic to another like a leaf blowing on the wind.
That's an unfortunate and rather dramatic mistake from what's otherwise a sterling institution. I have to assume that since the authors of this book were locals, the selection committee didn't think it necessary to actually read the book before proceeding. Tesla was a unique person with an interesting life. If you're interested in learning about Tesla, look somewhere else. Anywhere, really, you could hardly do worse than to choose this book.
