A few weeks ago I was having a conversation with a friend, following many many Star Wars references.  (Not least of which was naming our entry to the Spudwood Derby, Darth Tater.)  We began debating who would win in a fight.  Luke Skywalker or Harry Potter.  (Said friend is not a fan of HP.)

We ultimately decided it would be Luke.  I mean, he has the Force.  He may be a whiney kid, but he can kick serious tail when it comes to a fight (so long as the Emperor doesn’t get involved with his lightning bolts).

Why Luke would win:

1- He has the Force.  All he has to do is tell Harry that they’re not enemies.  Fight over.
2- If all else fails, Luke can just pull out his blaster.
3- Luke can deflect spells with his light saber.  Those spells can be bounced back at Harry.
4- Luke can dodge spells.  Those Jedi acrobatics?  Awesome.
5- Luke has C-3PO and R2D2.  All he has to do is re-install those jet packs in R2 and he can distract HP.

Any other reasons you can think of?  Do you think differently?  Argue for your side in the comments!  (Prize?  Title of biggest nerd.  I’ve held it for a long while.  It’s a little heavy, but it’s fun.)
