Both characters are stubborn, intelligent and determined. Morgan Le Fey, of course, uses her qualities to ruin her brother, Arthur, and for evil. Morgan Le Fey enslaves and kills to get what she wants. Hank Morgan uses his qualities to try to change events during King Arthur's time to suit his own beliefs and opinions. By introducing technology and changing the political system of the time, Hank causes havoc.

I think the greatest difference between the two characters is what they are willing to do to get their way. Morgan Le Fey will do anything, including murder, to get what she wants. She is a well-known villain of King Arthur's time, and she uses her powers to ruin her brother and anyone who stands in her way. Hank Morgan isn't willing to murder to change things to his beliefs. Hank has a basic goodness in him that Morgan Le Fay is lacking.
