I can't bring myself to hate Tarlokk
Well airbending mostly isn't suitable for actually dispatching enemies. You'd need a wall or a cliff or something nearby and then push them into/off of it to do any appreciable amount of damage. It's more defensive and disruptive than offensive. It seems overpowered because it allows Aang to stay in the fight almost indefinitely but if it weren't for his other elements he'd almost never actually win any fights.
http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Airbending read up the "Weakness" part
So i love these series how long will AVATAR: THE LEGEND OF KORRA? last for and would there a third one?
Have a slight feeling Amon will come out and say he had nothing to do with the capture of Korra. That Tarlokk is up to something, and point out corruption in the bending leaders, someone is lying what happened to Korra.
I see some sort of anarchy soon.
True. So maybe he can't air bend but still gifted by being avatars kid and master of chi blocking. I feel like the "third eye" chakra gate which he targets can block chakra flow and stop bending.....there is some theory that this creates the "illusion" that you have lost your powers but it's not true. Dunno.....but Bumi and Tarlokk would prob be similar age growing up and could have had some rivalry......tarlokk using his bloodbending on him at an early age made amon/bumi see just how powerful and evil bending can be in the wrong hands and so wants to stop it.....along iwth whatever happen to that yakune guy.I thought, according to the lineage picture that was brought up several pages back, that Bumi was a non-bender?
Edit: Dug up the picture, it was quite a few pages back!
I'm starting to get that the equalist aren't the disease, they're a symptom.
with korra's apparent inability to connect with any of the previous avatars i think there is something seriously wrong in the spirit world.
and i think i know which spirit amon learned the bending-blocking from.
Highly doubt it's Koh. Even though he's angry about avatar Kuruk trying to slay him (he stole Ummi's face for a good reason) and he's always trying to steal faces, he holds no personal grudge against any other avatars...Koh eagerly helped Aang when it came to saving the ocean and moon spirits.
"Didn't we have some fun...though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said 'Goodbye' and you were like 'No way' and then I was all 'We pretended we were going to murder you'......that was great"
Korra cant contact the spirit world because it requires meditating and calmness correct?
Its the same reason why she cant learn airbending, and why contacting the spirits was so easy for Aang.
Once she learns how to calm herself down contacting the spirits will be easier.
Im 100% sure to be hoenst tarrlok is not amon, they ARE related in some way but are not the same person.
I said it once and I'll say it again and again, Amon is a misunderstood good guy.
For the fact that korra cannot contact the spirit world, it has to do with the same reason she cannot airbend, she cannot focus/be calm
