Harry Potter World Cup: Dumbledore Vs. Ollivander

Welcome to MTV’s Harry Potter World Cup! We’ve selected 64 of the best “Harry Potter” characters and matched them up in a series of duels for a chance at magical glory, but it’s up to YOU to decide who the greatest “Potter” character of all time is in this pool of wizards and witches. Will the Death Eaters destroy Hogwarts, or will good triumph over evil? In the end, the choice is yours, so keep voting at MTV Movies Blog and make your voice heard!

We were this close to seeing another historic duel between longtime rivals Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald, but the second-greatest dark wizard of all time proved no match for wand master Ollivander by the end of the Harry Potter World Cup’s first round. With one victory already under his belt, can Ollivander pull off another upset to defeat the beloved Hogwarts headmaster in this second round of the Godric’s Hollow division?

(2) Albus Dumbledore vs. (10) Mr. Ollivander
There’s no question that Ollivander knows his way around a wand, but when it comes to spell-casting and wizarding accomplishments, he pales in comparison to the esteemed Professor Dumbledore. Simply put, Albus is one of, if not the greatest wizard the world has ever seen. Combine his natural skill set with his popularity in the “Potter” fan community and the outcome seems predetermined. Then again, I would have thought the same of Gellert Grindelwald last round. Ollivander could have some surprises up his sleeve…
