Percy Jackson and the Olympians star Walker Scobell says he thinks Percy Jackson would beat Harry Potter in a fight.

Just like Harry Potter before it, Percy Jackson and the Olympians has an intensely loyal fandom who have grown up with the franchise.

Now, Walker has opened up about comparisons between Percy and Harry and revealed that he'd like to see them fight.

Walker recently appeared on Josh Horowitz's Happy Sad Confused podcast and, during the interview, he was asked which comic book hero he'd like to see Percy battle against. Josh then gave him the option to team up with a hero instead and Walker said: "I think there's only one team up option: Spider-Man."

As for versus, Walker added: "I do want to see Percy versus Harry Potter at some point. It wouldn't be much of a fight though."

Josh then asked Walker to explain what he meant by that and Walker said: "Oh my God, I'm sorry but I'm just gonna elaborate on this real quick. It would not be a fight at all. Oh my gosh."

He ended by saying: "I don't know how you could say Harry Potter would win that."
