Do people give Bellatrix too much credit?
Now, I'm not making this câu hỏi to "hate" on Bellatrix. In fact, she's my yêu thích villain in the whole series, and she's very intriguing and complex.
That said, I think people give Bellatrix too much credit. I recently talked with someone who đã đưa ý kiến that Bellatrix could fight Hermione, Ginny, Luna, McGonagall, Tonks, Professor Sprout, and Amelia Bones and still either win hoặc at least be equal to all of them together.
First of all, Hermione, Ginny, and Luna could hold her off together equally. Tonks was a highly skilled Auror. McGonagall was almost on the same level as Voldemort and Dumbledore, who both were obviously stronger than Bellatrix. And Madam Bones was đã đưa ý kiến to be an especially gifted witch, who put up a very good fight against Voldemort, and it took McGonagall, Kingsley and Slughorn to be equal to him. So again, McGonagall is stronger than Bellatrix. So including McGonagall, Tonks, Sprout, and Madam Bones in the fight when Hermione, Ginny, and Luna were already equal to Bella (if Hermione was using a proper wand, they would've won) is just ridiculous. Bellatrix does not equal every other powerful woman in the series.
