Harry Potter World Cup: Voldemort Vs. James

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!

All of this has happened before and all of this will happen again in the epic showdown between He Who Must Not Be Named and Harry’s father James Potter, who once again find themselves dueling not just for their lives, but for eternal glory in the Harry Potter World Cup. It’s the final match of the Diagon Alley division’s second round, and it’s sure to be one for the books.

Voting for all second round match-ups will close on Friday, July 1 at 12:01 AM EST, which is only a few hours away — you’re running out of time to vote, so get to those polls now! You can follow all of the duels right here.

(2) Lord Voldemort vs. (7) James Potter
The Dark Lord killed him before, so why shouldn’t he be able to do it again? How about the fact that this time, the murder of James Potter wouldn’t come down to skill and surprise alone, but also fan support, and I’m not certain he has it in this match. If enough people rally behind the resurrected James, the Potter clan could rewrite history and finish Voldemort off here and now. They say the only thing Tom Riddle fears is death; if I were Tom Riddle, I’d be afraid right now.
