Do people give Bellatrix too much credit?
Now, I'm not making this 问题 to "hate" on Bellatrix. In fact, she's my 最喜爱的 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 说 that Bellatrix could fight Hermione, Ginny, Luna, McGonagall, Tonks, Professor Sprout, and Amelia 识骨寻踪 and still either win 或者 at least be equal to all of them together.
First of all, Hermione, Ginny, and Luna could hold her off together equally. 唐克斯 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 识骨寻踪 was 说 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 识骨寻踪 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.
