: In my last topic, where I asked if Venger could ". . .
: do what he threatened to do?" I qualified my question with
: the assumption that the world depicted in the cartoon was
: "our world," and that there would be no native wizards
: or superheroes there to challenge him.
: But what if there were wizards and witches native to Earth to
: oppose him? What if Venger had to deal with Harry Dresden?
: What about Balthazar Blake from Disney's 2010 movie,
: "Sorcerer's Apprentice?" For that matter, what about
: the Halliwell sisters from "Charmed," or Endora and
: Samantha (or even an adult Tabitha,) from "Bewitched?"
: Speaking as a Harry Dresden fan, I'd have to answer honestly
: that it really depends on when in Harry's career he crossed
: paths with Venger. Around the time of Storm Front or Fool
: Moon , Venger would probably mop the floor with him. But once
: Wizard Dresden picked up Soulfire and the backing of the
: Archangel Uriel himself, well, I think Harry would have the
: advantage in the fight. Besides, if something were to go wrong
: in a battle, Venger's tendency is to snarl and retreat until he
: can figure out how to get the situation under control. Harry is
: much, much more adept at taking the most spectacular misfire and
: improvising to turn the whole thing around to his advantage.
: Plus, there's always the home-turf advantage. Harry Dresden has
: a lot of very powerful allies besides Uriel, and they aren't
: afraid to gang up against the threat that Venger would pose.
: p.s. Did you know that the D&D cartoon got a mention in one of
: the Dresden stories?
No, I did not know this, Kryschenn. Please provide more details for the benefit of myself, and everyone else here at Helix Town Square. That sounds very interesting, and makes me wonder how many other fandoms have alluded to the D&D cartoon . . . .
