Hello all you Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados!

Most Powerful Wizard of All Time
This week we are looking at the most powerful wizard of all time. Alas, there are many choices available in the nerdology world. These are the few we have nominated. So, without further ado, lets meet this week’s combatants.
The granddaddy of all wizards. Merlin has been in existence since c. 1136. Known mainly for the Arthurian legends, Merlin is one of King Author’s biggest confidants and the earliest known version of wizardry in pop culture.
Your wizard from the story filled with Sword Fights, ROUS (Rodents of Unusual Size), and Romance. Max is the wizard appearing in The Princess Bride. Miracle Max was played famously by Billy Crystal and is responsible for bringing our stories hero back from “mostly” dead.
Coming from the Dragonlance main series of books. He has been known as the book’s break out star. Raistlin is extremely intelligent and endowed with extreme magical power. In the process of gaining his power his body has taken the toll of the power making him weak physically. Raistlin’s quest for power eventually turns him evil but in the process results in him becoming the most powerful mortal on Krynn.
Harry is both a wizard and a sleuth private eye. He appears in The Dresden File books. Harry is an extremely powerful magic user compared to others in the same age range as him. He starts lacking the proper fine control needed to wield his power but learns to better control it as he takes on an apprentice.
Rand is popularized in The Wheel of Time series of books. He is so powerful that the character foretelling his birth died from the sheer force of it. Rand is known to be an even stronger Ta’veren then the character Artur Hawkwing, who is widely regarded as the strongest of the Ta’veren in recorded history. Rand is the only known soul that is woven out by the wheel of time for rebirth that is forseen.
Elminster is found within the Forgotten Realms world. The great Elminster has done it all in order to achieve his status. When originally learning the magical arts, he was transformed into a woman so as to better adapt to the arts. He has traveled to hell surviving tortures due to his sheer endurance and magical ability in healing. Furthermore, even when he lost his ability to use magic, he was still cunning and powerful due to his knowledge in general.
