Review for Harry Potter and The Invincible Technomage

Harry Potter and The Invincible Technomage

(#) BenRG 2007-12-08

Now this is a potentially very interesting story.

Harry Potter raised by the Marvel superheroes, already trained by Dr. Strange, The Scarlet Witch and Agatha Harkness. Potentially, the boy is already a decade ahead of anyone else at Hogwarts. When you add Tony Stark and Reed Richards' 'toys' to the mix, I suspect that Harry is going to shake up a lot of things, probably mostly without necessarily knowing about it.

We have only started but already things are going in a different way. I can imagine that a Harry who owes much of his training to Dr. Strange would have a more academic/ritual approach to magic, so Ravenclaw is a better approach than Gryffindor. I also expect to see Harry having a Grimoire and using wandless magic. It may also be interesting for Snape having to handle James Potter's son when he does not even use that hated name.

It has been a long time since I last saw anyone refer to Julie Power, Lightspeed of Power Pack. It may be interesting for Hermione when she realises that she has a rival... who is a superheroine ;-)

I will definately be following this story.

Author's response

- Thank you.

- Agatha was his principle tutor, with Stephen and Wanda putting in their two cents worth like most professional will when they meet a talented amateur, correcting technique, making helpful suggestions, making sure their resumes are up to date, like that. Harry won't be calling on Demons for his power, power he's got.

- I put him into Ravenclaw because of Tony Stark. This is a Harry rewarded for Academic achievement, not punished. This Harry wouldn't have a lazy chess playing eating machine (who runs out on his friend and love of his life when the going gets tough) for a best friend. Ron will be a bud, but not the best friend. Snape on the other hand will be Snape, and regret it in short order. This Harry will not stand for abuse, and will return the favor 10 fold.

- I always liked the Pack, and Julie (quite frankly) was the only younger than teen aged female Superhero (other than her sister Katie, which would be sick) available at the time (early 90s) for Harry to have the Happies over. Hermione will meet Julie and her siblings when she visits Harry in NYC in a couple of years. Could it be that Crookshanks isn't the only Granger with claws?
