Is Percy Jackson better than Harry?

Thorpe: Percy Jackson & the Olympians was hugely inspired by Greek mythology. Not so much with Harry Potter. The fact that Harry Potter is not solely based on one thing, makes it far more creative than Percy Jackson. J.K. Rowling had a constant creative outlet, while Rick Riordan was limited to the Greek Mythology.
