it's never stupid to compare anyone to anyone else.
Comparing Bella's ability to perform magic to Hermione's ability to perform magic won't make a person look very smart, but it's up to them. As long as a person is honestly thinking about the words they are projecting, they should be successful at comparing the two.
It isn´t. Two persons can be diferent and be compared. tu can compare Edward and Neville por saying Edward is a vampire and Neville isn´t. Edward is taller and más atractive. They have nothing to do with each other but still u can compare them.
It is stupid to think Bella could be on the same level of awesomeness as Hermione. Hermione is a human. According to Jo Rowling, muggles are human without powers, and witches and wizards are human with them. Even if Hermione didn't have magic, she would still be better. Bella is whiny; she is so ungrateful for what she does, and all she really cares about is Edward's looks. Have tu read how many times she describes his 'flawless face' and his 'smoldering eyes.' Only one person can have a smolder, and that's Flynn Rider. Hermione is a strong female character who does not let her emotions really get in the way of anything. If she did, she would've left with Ron o flung herself off a cliff like Bella did. No, she chose to stick to her promise to Harry and help when he needed it. That's a true friend. Hermione won't let anyone push her around. If Ron tried to rip the engine out of her car, he would not hear the end of it. Hermione can take care of herself, but Bella is in constant need of Edward on which to depend. So, obviously, Hermione is the most practical choice. After all, she was voted the 2nd strongest female character in literary after Jane Eyre. Bella won't make the parte superior, arriba 10,000 because she's such an awful, bland character who gave up her friends (Jessica was a little bitchy, but Angela was nice) and her family for Edward.
I don't think it's stupid to compare any character with another. Usually it can be quite thought provoking, and considering this is a debate spot, comparing is sensible. There's always something to compare.
