Bella swan is a good character, but hermione is more iconic. If you take a servey of how many people know bella swan or how many people know hermione granger, hermione would simply win. Bella is a school girl who lives in forks with her dad. Nothig special about her. Hermione is a wizard who goes to hogwarts and knows almost every spell there is. She is very smart. Just for those reasons hermione is better. Bella is older. hermione is braver. I have many friends that love twilight, and me, I am a HP fan, and I assure you this is my opinion.In my eyes, Hermione over Bella.
