Was Lurtz the strongest Uruk Hai ? Can't Post

I ask this because he put up a good fight against Aragorn before getting his head chopped off.
And i know the Beserker Uruk Hai's are supposed to be the biggest strongest Uruks, yet do you think Lurtz would best them in a duel

Probably not. [In reply to] Can't Post

Given Aragorn can kill Lurtz, but can't kill cave troll.

And Legolas can kill cave troll, but can't kill marathon runner Berzerker.

Therefore Lurtz can't kill Berzerker.

Maybe so [In reply to] Can't Post

But Lurtz will always be the most bad ass Uruk

Maybe first and more experienced.... [In reply to] Can't Post

But experience cannot conquer all progress. I think Saruman tinkered with the later models to make them better, so.... maybe not, but he still can kick some butt!!

Call me Rem. Rembrethil is a lot to type!!

Oh I love these stupid comparisons ;-) [In reply to] Can't Post

Let's take another one:

Isildur was able to defeat Sauron but was himself defeated by a generic Orc archer. Following your logic Sauron would be no match for an Orc archer right?

Oh I found another:

Gandalf (the Grey) wasn't able to defeat Saruman but Grima Wormtongue was and Legolas did kill Grima which makes Legolas AND Grima more powerful than Gandalf (the Grey)?

I could continue but I think my point is clear isn't it?

BTW: The Troll in ROTK who fights Aragorn isn't a Cave Troll, it's a Olog-Hai in full armor.

"There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power."
