Edit: Wouldn't it be crazy if Amon draws his power form mental energy? The more people who are focused on something that are not benders he can draw from and so on..
I just noticed Yakones necklace in the flashback, might have something to do with it? Looked like some kind of moon-ish thing going on!
Well I think Amon might be avatars second piece... somehow avatar could be split in 2 bodies- Korra with water,earth and fire bending and Amon with energy,air bending...
I have a question about bending....every type of bending has like a special type:
Water has Blood
Fire has Lighting
Earth has Metal
but what does Air have?
You can look at them as extentions but I think you should view them as different kinds of bending really.
But I think Air gets closest to being able to blow general stuff in the direction, aka you could earthbendish with air cuzz you blow rocks to them.
Otherwise, I do not really know.

If it hasn't been invented yet, honestly the only highly advanced form of airbending I could think up would be vacuumbending (creating voids in the air), or possibly some way of returning someone's 'last breath', essentially bringing them back to life.

As far as lightning and bloodbending. There's been 70+ years since the techniques have been out. It stands to reason that during that time they may have become much easier to learn and master.
I asked this myself a lot of pages ago (the vacuum thing for airbending) and have to say they're already doing it, the airscooter would be a vacuum since he makes the air spin around. This velocity should make the rest of the air move aswell and create a vacuum in the middle.
Imo Amon isn't the bad guy, I think he has a "blue demon/devil Zuko" thing going on and will turn. Also Aang discovered his ability after the sealionturtle showed him how to do it. Wouldn't it be possible for something similar happening to Amon?
How Amon is able to avoid bloodbending, imo it's due to his power being able to divert bending away (That's how it was portrayed when Aang took away the firelord's bending with the beam's coming out of him), the theory that he's part cyborg seems weird since all automated/moving parts use hydraulics/steam which can easily be bent by waterbenders.
Also water has 2specialties: healing and bloodbending both are rare and we know that Kora can heal and that it's still "uncommon", in a magical plot twist Katarra will learn Kora how to bloodbend to arm her vs the bad guys
For air specialty I'm thinking about atmospheric pressure. Lighting is strong vs water/metal, bloodbending is strong vs everything, metal is strong vs water/fire and presure is strong vs everything due to being able to "drop" projectiles
P.S. (is it saturday yet? )

That's my point of view on it at least.
