Do you remember the part where Frodo offered Galadriel the ring? She wants it The way she reacts tells us immediately how the ring will corrupt her. She goes dark. She fights back the urge to take the ring. She knows the ring's power will corrupt her and bring destruction to all around her. That's not a Mary Sue. A Mary Sue might behave more like all of a sudden and against any known canon be presented in a say a prequel as not an Elvin sorceress queen but this unstoppable warrior princess of her youth who climbs up mountains stabbing her sword in the rocks and is never in any real danger or offering cause for concern. A Mary Sue is bad writing. Galadriel in LotR was good writing. See the difference? That's also character development from a character who's lived a further several thousand years where the Rings of Power are a thing. Corrupting is what the ring does. Gandalf also won't touch it in Fellowship. This Series takes place before all that. She's only motivated by Revenge by the death of her brother by the hands of Sauron. Is Legolas also a Mary Sue? Because the only thing, based on the first two Episodes, that would indicate that is her easily defeating a Troll in the first few minutes of the pilot. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
