Is Gandalf the most powerful being in this picture Can't Post

http://dryponder.deviantart.com/...-Safe-Here-368578482

I found this image from Deviant Art and wondered if Gandalf was the most powerful one there? At first I thought he must be, because he's practically a god, but then I remember Thor IS a god.

So what do you guys think?

I might be safe there, [In reply to] Can't Post

but I'd also feel very inconsequential when surrounded by super-able beings!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....

"nowimŽ I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"

As long as Robocop is around, Gandalf will always be second best...

Nope [In reply to] Can't Post

Had to check the character guide in one of the links. Aslan is in the background on the left. Aslan was supposed to be God so that outclasses Gandalf.

Also, I see Morpheus (The Sandman), who is the Lord of Dreams, an embodiment of an abstract force of the universe. That's gotta be at least on par with a Vala. His role is similar to Irmo Lorien in Tolkien's work.

Not safe. [In reply to] Can't Post

In fact, very likely to be suffocated by burgeoning egos. AngelicLaugh

"It was just a sword, beautiful in the way of a weapon, with the jewels in the hilt set in gold scrollwork, and the blade glimmering and eager, as if it would fight of itself. Weapons are named for this; some are eager fighters, some dogged, some unwilling; but all are alive."--The Hollow Hills

I feel very safe.... [In reply to] Can't Post

sadly, Gandalf has proven somewhat destructible, while Hulk can have nukes dropped on his head and yet live......

Harry Potter and Gandalf would be a great team.......

and Thor is merely a representative of a highly advanced culture.......

...........do I hear thunder......

Go outside and play...
