Yes! I found a way to cheat the eight marks of death; all you need is a crit partner, spell check and (BOOM!) those horrible omens are no more!
There are a lot of characters who resonate with us when we partake of visual and literary art, but there is always that one individual who we look at and go WOW.
For me, that individual is Albus Dumbledore.
He is the Headmaster of Hogwarts, of course, and the most powerful wizard, but he is also the weirdest character I've seen in a while. He floats around with grace and poise - never shows anger in times of dire; always smiles and is always one step ahead of you. But even though his mere presence is like standing before a wise, old king, Albus Dumbledore is also very quirky.
His fascination of sweets and gadgets is not the denominator; that honor goes to his somewhat...um..."crazy" way of holding a conversation and being distracted by various things, like a child would.
That simply heightens my admiration for a powerful man who isn't the cookie-cutter mold of perfection beyond reproach - even Cornelisu Fudge, the Minister of Magic, was quirky and he had to be perfect!
Another character I adore is the Omega-Level Mutant Dark Phoenix; not Phoenix, mind you, but her sinister alter ego (think Black Swan...).
Considered one of the most powerful mutants alive, this bodacious firebird is all power. But unlike some women who's alter egos ravage with kitchen utensils, her rage can destroy an entire planet.
Now that's what you call a BOMBSHELL!
Who's your favorite character from literature and film?
