It seems even Shakespeare succumbs to the temptation of Mary Sue.

Of course Mary Sue isn't restricted to Harry Potter.

2013-04-17 Rerun commentary: I've removed the second link above, since it now seems to go to a dead page. Nowadays of course, I'd have linked to Wikipedia and TV Tropes instead.

That's the Hogwarts Express in the background, by the way. I got the LEGO set shortly before making this comic, and wanted to find a way to use it in the comic. That's set 4708, the first LEGO Hogwarts Express set. They've since released five (count them!) newer versions of the train.
