They’re here, they’re mad, and they’re ready to duke it out.
In one corner, he’s gray… he’s white… he’s GANDALF!
In the other, he’s got bells in his beard and a twinkle in his eye… it’s DUMBLEDORE!
Transcending Death: Gandalf!
Remember when Dumbledore died and everyone was all- HE IS THE PHOENIX! HE WILL RISE FROM HIS ASHES! Yeah, nope. Point to Gandalf.
Dumbledore has wisdom-packed brain nuggets like, “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities,” But Gandalf’s “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!” is unforgettable. Shake hands, gentlemen. This round is a tie.
Communing with Animals: Gandalf!
Fawkes is fine, but Gandalf can whistle for his horse, whisper to a moth, and summon a giant flying eagle to whisk him away from danger. He’d give Snow White a run for her money.
Unless Middle Earth was circulating a Gandalf lunch box that never got mentioned, Dumbledore’s trading card is prime branding. Before Harry had even met the famous wizard, he had Dumby’s card tucked in his back pocket.
So with a KILLER 3.5 to 1.5, Gandalf is our victor! Who do you want to see do battle? Tell us in the comments.
