Harry Potter is no longer the cherubic little boy with the round glasses and bedroom under the stairs. Over the last nine years, our beloved young wizard has grown up and is about to face the ultimate challenge in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' -- beating Lord Voldemort and saving his quickly crumbling wizard world.

But Harry was forced to become an adult long before the 'Hallows.' Though at first he was coddled by his professors and given an easy welcome to the world of heroic crime fighting, that all changed in 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.' Harry was almost literally thrown into the boiling pot of adulthood, forced to battle in the Tri-Wizard tournament and start feeling real adult loss.

'Goblet of Fire' started the string of fallen heroes, which -- as we know -- continues through each remaining book. Now that Potter has to truly set out on his own and prepare for his battle with Voldemort, we thought we'd go back to his first real battle with the evil wizard, and the year that forced him to grow up.
