People in olden times talked about Merlin.
In more recent times Crowley.

But who is the most powerful Magician of our times???

Who are some famous magicians...

Harry Dresden, although Harry Potter might be close (given that there are hints that Dresden's father wasn't human that could put him more into Merlin's realm (ie Merlin Satanspawn)).

Stephen Strange used to be fairly powerful, but he's lost a lot of kick when he lost his role as Sorceror Supreme.
Zantana Zantara is fairly powerful, although she's also copped a power drop recently.
The Sorcereress of Greyskull is currently dead.
Gandalf the Grey/The White is currently also dead.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

David Copperfield. He somehow gets attractive young ladies to keep marrying him. You can't tell me that some sort of enchantment or dark sorcery isn't involved.

Does anyone still practice real magic now-a-days?  I thought it was a dead, and well-imitated art at this point..... :P

i don't think powerful is the right word to use here.
they have no power per se - they are illusionists who prey on the gullibility of their audiences

That's a power like any other. There's a mentalist aspect to it. The power to affect people's minds. Derren Brown comes to mind. He has repeatedly filmed himself being able to do things like pay for goods with meaningless pieces of paper, and far more bizarre things, just by affecting the mind of the person he was conversing with. It is such a real power, and like any, can be used for good or bad.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy

I only know from the people I know personally.   Famous people are often mostly hype.

i don't consider that power. i guess if one is affected by such things then it is, but i see it as backhanded trickery

I've heard he is good at making things disappear. :innocent:
