Monday Night Match-Up: Dumbledore vs. Gandalf
Well, it’s about that time, my friends, for me to ‘nerd out’ for another Monday Night Match-up, but this time we are going to be doing something a little different from our normal DC vs Marvel! So far you have voted via social media that Oliver Queen would take the crown versus Hawkeye. You voted that Captain America would beat Batman. Thor was voted to beat out Superman. Deathstroke killedThe Winter Soldier. Sara beat Natasha by the mere single digits. Atom squashed Ant-Man in the final tally. Ghost Rider blazed past John Constantine for the win. Wonder Woman came out on top with a victory over Lady Sif. Deathstroke dominated once again against Frank Castle. Dare Devil pulled ahead of Green Arrow in a no-weapons melee match. Thor recently squashed the almighty Wonder Woman in an extremely close match. Colossus smashed Bane for a drastic victory. Deadshot out-shot Bullseye for an incredible victory. Katana sliced into Elektra for a brutal victory.
Did you hear how J.K Rowling is planning on releasing 3 more Harry Potter novels? I recently purchased my copy of The Cursed Child and I cannot wait to dive into it. Purchasing this new novel got me reminiscing about the old books, and I thought about how attached I really got to all of those characters. Especially Dumbledore. My heart literally broke when I read his death scene, and it was even worse seeing it in the movie. I began wondering who would be a good counterpart who could ‘duel it out’ with Dumbledore… and that brought me to Gandalf the White. An epic wizard battle? I would definitely watch that!
You know the drill everyone, if Gandalf and Dumbledore were to ‘duel it out’, wizard-style, who would win?!
Dumbledore (Skills and Abilities)
- Dumbledore’s magical abilities are unrivaled by those of anyone else in his world.
- He is also a master alchemist and was the person who discovered twelve ways that dragon’s blood can be used. Rather than needing the invisibility cloak, he is able to become invisible using his own magic spell.
- He can conjure Gubraithian Fire and do a number of other spells that not only serve to protect himself and others, but also that can inflict severe injury.
- He can teleport.
- Dumbledore’s wand is one of the most powerful wands in existence, giving him an extreme edge in a duel.
- Dumbledore is extremely intelligent and his experience with magic is extremely vast.
Gandalf the White (Skills and Abilities)
- As Gandalf the White, he is innately more powerful than any human or other mortal creature.
- He can create and control fire, create magical objects, and control non-magic objects. His great mental powers allow him to know and alter the will of others.
- He is an expert swordsman, and when combined with his magic in battle, he is almost unstoppable.
- Gandalf’s staff is his primary weapon of choice, and he can use his power to defeat almost any enemy he faces off with.
- Gandalf had lived for hundreds of lives of men, giving him an extreme amount of wisdom.
Jules Vote: Gandalf the White. He is timeless, and Dumbledore has yet to be resurrected after being murdered by Snape anyway.
