This was in a comic book, which conflict with Vader's true abilities in the movies. G-canon overrules C-canon, if that's what people will go at.

The suit made Vader much less able than he was before that. This is supposed to be like Vader's mind in Anakin's unmutilated body. Not that Vader really improved much once his will and body were broken.

Also, there's nothing to confirm that "Older SW Jedi/Sith > Newer Jedi/Sith"
Lucas had never addressed this, as he had never expected KOTOR to come into existence when he created Star Wars. If he says that Anakin was the most powerful Jedi, but another from the KOTOR era showed himself superior, then the superior canon creates a flaw in the logic of it all.

Not really. They're projecting what Anakin would have become if he wasn't Darth Vader. Then on top of that, whether he was superior to Revan. One speculation upon another.

2) More natural potential does not equal Superior Force Abilities. Anakin was a Guardian, and thus never developed much focus and a range of different abilities. Revan was a Consular who studied under many Jedi Masters, and at Malachor and Korriban. See where I am going?
Well you should assume that Anakin would have learned more fighting techniques eventually. But you do have a point that Revan was more skilled.

So Revan used finesse, which could topple extreme levels of raw brute strength. Anakin on the other hand was like superman. Invincible, but was nothing without his super strength.
