Gandalf. 7,000 year old man who can duke it out with orc dudes and come out without a scratch.
Also he hits people in the head with his staves.
You will get 3 questions that are true or false. For each correct response, I will deliver a dose of a muscle relaxant and "Happy Stuff". For each wrong response, I will slap you across the face and inject you with a heavy dose of a toxin that causes extreme pain throughout your body without damaging your brain or organs.
Question one: Is Edward Cullen a vampire, true or false?
Seriously though, Dumbledore is crazy awesome in his own right, and so is Gandalf, but the eternal place of "Old Mentor Figure" goes to Old Obi-Wan Kenobi. He doesn't just have ANY big stick, he's got a BIG STICK that uses a cyclic stream of plasma that's contained and recycled within the handle, and it GLOWS BLUE MOTHER*******!!!
Here's a few keys points you're all forgetting:
-In case you guys had forgotten, Dumbledore too has a sword.
-Who cares if he's got "the fastest horse in middle earth!" Dumbledore can apparate. You know, instantaneous transportation. I highly doubt a horse can beat teleportation at its best.
-GANDALF DIED AS WELL.
-Dumbledore sacrificed himself. He wasn't frail. He chose to die. Gandalf was killed by a flaming cow. Big deal. Dumbledore could kill a big, flaming cow in his sleep.
There were other points, but I've got something to do. I'll post again later.
Oh, and thanks ZS. I'm surprised I've kept at least 10% of the vote the whole time.
