Was Amon and Yacone Related to Hama from The Last Airbender?

One of the most mysterious episodes in The Last Airbender happened to introduce one of the most frightening characters in the entire series: Hama. When Hama was younger, she resided in the Southern Watertribe along with Katara’s grandmother Kanna. She lived the life of a normal water bender until the Fire Nation attacked her small tribe. Slowly, the Fire Nation soldiers picked off each waterbender one by one until Hama was finally captured.

From there she remained imprisoned, with no plans of remaining captive for long. She invented and perfected her skill of Bloodbending and used it to escape. From there she became the insane Inn Keeper that we all know her to be. Her reign of Bloodbending ultimately ended with her in handcuffs while she crackled with laughter, reiterating the fact that her job was done.

So her role in the series is done, right? Her legacy stops right there? Not necessarily. I think her insanity might have been hereditary.

Support the Development of a Legend of Korra Lego Set

With Christmas right around the corner, the time of giving is now (NOT getting). If you’re a Legend of Korra fan or a fan of Legos, you currently have the opportunity to make dreams come true. Someone by the alias of GlenBricker has recently started a Lego Project in which he or she has created a Legend of Korra Lego set that contains Korra, Amon and the Mecha Tank that we saw Hiroshi Sato use to attack Team Avatar.

Unfortunately, the project will only stay an idea until Lego decides to begin production. And the only way for Lego to begin production is if the idea gets 10,000 supporters.

That’s why I have come to you, my readers, for help. This project currently only has 231 supports so it obviously has a long way to go. But with your help, maybe we can get this project jump started. Besides, choosing to support this project is entirely free of charge and extremely easy. Why wouldn’t you do it? (Don’t be a Grinch!)

Here’s what you have to do:

Community Opinion: Who was the Better Villain Between Fire Lord Ozai and Amon?

Christmas Korra

December has finally arrived in 2012 and even though the world is supposed to end pretty soon, the future is still packed with loads of fun for Legend of Korra fans. December 25th is rapidly approaching and Old Saint Nick is currently busy preparing tons of Legend of Korra merchandise for us avid ‘Korra’ fans.

That means games, posters, action figures and quite possibly DVD’s.

My cousins and I actually plan on tracking Santa Claus this year on the popular satellite tracking website Norad Santa. It’s loads of fun for the older ones that love the Christmas season, and perfect for the younger ones that still believe in the jolly-old man with the big red coat (he IS real).

Anyways, with Legend of Korra news slow once again, I thought it would be a good idea to launch another Community Opinion post. The last one was a great success and I wanted to thank all of you who commented and shared your opinion with us. The general idea for this particular Community Opinion post is the same: Use the comment section below to interact with other fans and talk about the discussion topic at hand. Don’t forget to state your opinion!

Now for the topic:

How Amon Used Bloodbending to Take Another Person’s Bending Away

We all know the effects of bloodbending. We know how it can be used to manipulate the human body into doing terrible things. But one thing that might not be so clear is how it can be used to take away bending.

The series didn’t do the best job of explaining the process, but nonetheless, the process does make a lot of sense. Bloodbending is extremely dynamic, so it only makes sense that it can be used to take away bending.

In order to fully grasp this concept, you need to understand the idea of Chi and how it works in the Avatar World.

The Legend of Korra Book 2 Speculation: The Villain

This is a series where we speculate everything there is to know about Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. We have currently covered speculation on the book’s setting and character development. Today we focus on the book’s villain.

At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Mike and Bryan revealed a lot of information regarding Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. One of the major reveals was the identity of the book’s villain: The Dark Spirit, who will be voiced by Grey DeLisle, the voice actress of Azula.

Despite the fact that we know little about this future antagonist, we can certainly speculate (and most likely confirm) that this new antagonist will be a spirit residing in the Spirit World. One important factor we cannot confirm, however, is the threat level of this new villain. In case you are unfamiliar, the threat level is essentially how threatening or dangerous a villain is to society.

So far, every villain created by Mike and Bryan has been a threat to society. Ex-Fire Lord Ozai had an entire Nation fighting with him while he tried to take over the entire Avatar World. Amon used his power of taking bending away as leverage in order to gain support as he tried to eliminate benders in Republic City.

So how exactly is The Dark Spirit a threat to society?

Amon’s Identity was Actually Confirmed in January

The season finale of The Legend of Korra aired this passed weekend and it certainly exceeded my expectations. We did not cover the final two episodes as much as we hoped, since I was out of state this past weekend with no computer access, but pre-episode coverage does not matter too much in my opinion. In the end, it doesn’t matter how many write-ups you read or trailers you watch: It’s the final product that matters. But that was the past, and right now we have a few things ahead of us. One of them being a real head smacker: Amon’s identity was actually revealed in January, and we knew about it.
