Wizard vs. Jedi

There is a healthy debate going on in my family right now that we need your help with:
Wizard vs. Jedi. 
Who would win?
Let's say Voldemort and Obi Wan were going at it.  Voldemort is handy with a wand but Obi Wan has that whole mind control thing.
I have a feeling we're really late to this debate so I expect all of you to have a firm argument already prepared. 

And I'll just save you all the trouble and stuff myself in a locker.

Oooooo, let the debate begin. I'm so excited!

This is not going to be a popular answer, but look, here is the deal, Obi Wan is going to die. I'M SORRY! Understand, yeah, it's gonna be an awesome fight. I mean, light sabers and avada kedavras all over the joint! RIVETING STUFF! It's going to go down like this: Obi Wan and Voldie are duking it out: It's Voldemort throws out a hex, Obi uses the force to deflect/dodge whatevs, this goes on for quite awhile. I mean there could be any number of different settings, but the ending will always be the same: Obi Wan will let Voldemort kill him so that he can become a part of the force forever and help his protege (whether it's luke or harry or whoever) to actually defeat Vodemort for good. Is it sad? Yes. But that's who Obi Wan is, and we can't change him. Obi just marches to the beat of his own drum and we have to respect that.

Hmm, I think we're comparing apples to oranges in this specific example because you're comparing evil wizard vs. good Jedi. I think a fairer comparison would be evil wizard vs. evil Jedi (Sith) because I could see their motives being similar (both Darth Vader and Voldemort are concerned with living forever) and if their motives conflicted I could see a serious battle.

The Emperor vs. Voldemort... now that I'd like to see.

If it's a straight duel a la wizard's duel, the Emperor wins, hands down. He could use the force to flick that little wand right out of Voldy's hand and lightning him to death. However, I think Voldy's a bit more cunning and would find a way to take the Emperor out without a direct confrontation.

Okay, Stephen has informed me that I'm wrong. A good Jedi would OF COURSE fight a bad wizard. I guess because Obi Wan has had suicidal tendencies I'm predisposed not to trust him in a duel to the death. Yoda would destroy Voldemort, absolutely, though I would prefer an episode II or III Yoda.

-nerd rant over-

Yeah, Yoda would win.

I feel a little torn on this one. Voldemort is pretty stinking sneaky, but, considering the fact that he was defeated by a teenager, I think he doesn't stand a chance against a powerful Jedi. And I would like to see a fight between the Emperor and Voldemort, too. And if I were to choose the Jedi, it would be Yoda as well. He's my favorite. (We short people have to stick together.)

I'm sorry, I can't help much with this debate. I don't know who Voldemort is (I'm assuming he's from Harry Potter and I've yet to read the books or see the movies). I hope after telling you this that we can still be friends.

Laura said...

I'm not really sure either. I've just been introduced to Voldemort in the last few weeks and I'd really like to think he'd lose just because he's Evil and he looks funny. And Yoda is adorable!

I would like to throw another person in the mix...Wizard vs. Jedi vs. Jack Bauer (for those of you who watched 24). Granted, Jack doesn't have any magical or mystical powers, but I still think he'd put up a good fight.

I say Obi-wan dies THEN kills him.

The Other Mary said...

I say Voldy wins over Obi-wan. It's the Riddle vs. Palpatine conundrum that sets my head a-whirl.

Empress of Venus said...

Not to be pragmatic, but one of them was killed by a fellow Jedi traitor, and the other was killed by a rebounding spell of his own. So...
