  • What Are The Differences Between Gandalf The Gray And Humbledore

    When it comes to the battle between Gandalf the Gray and Albus Dumbledore, it’s a very hard choice for a sci-fi nerd like me to pick a favorite. With so many pros to both I had to debate a lot about which one was the best, but I would have to say that Mr. Gandalf, hands down, is the best and most helping wizard of all time. In the next few paragraphs I will explain to you the key points why I think Gandalf the Gray is the best choice. Character portrayal is a very important part to look at between both wizards, it’s who they portray and what kind of character each wizard is. Gandalf is portrayed as the mentor with a warm, sometimes scolding grandfatheresk demeanor. Though he has a soft side he bounces back between friend, advisor, and leader. Dumbledore is portrayed as a gentle man of stature. While he extenuated the more fatherly quality, Dumbledore was a much more secretive, exhausted, and uncertain wizard. He literally had to pluck memories from his own mind. Gandalf doesn’t hide the horrific facts of Frodo’s journey to save middle earth; he simply stands by his side and shows him the way. Dumbledore is very good at hiding the truth about the certain evils in and around Hogwarts. Knowing that Dumbledore is so secretive makes me unable to trust him as a character. Experience and bravery is another key point to debate. Gandalf spends his entire life on the road fighting endless evils to protect the world of Middle Earth; this makes him a lot more experienced in battles.…
