Due to Legend of Korra being the big buzz in June and July of 2012, I had this idea that is similar to a battle thread where you guys and gals talk about who is the better Avatar. It's a bit late, and I apologize for it.

Synopsis

First off, let me do some background info on these two series.

For those who are new to series, the original Avatar series revolves around Aang who is the new Avatar that disappeared from the world 100 years ago. Katara and Sokka find Aang imprisoned in an iceberg. After freeing Aang, the siblings aid Aang to help him master all of elements in order to defeat the Fire Lord and to end the war.

For Legend of Korra, here's a synopsis written by Wales:

Seventy years after the Hundred Years War, Avatar Aang has passed on and the time has come for the new Avatar to be selected. Finding a young waterbender named Korra, it is evident she is the new Avatar as she sets off to begin her training of the four elements. Already having mastered fire, earth, and water at a remarkably early age, she has one element left to master: air. With a mass shortage of airbenders in the world, the responsibility is left to a man who knew Aang too well: his youngest son Tenzin. However, Tenzin cannnot train Korra in the South Pole so she must relocate to Republic City; the iconic city Aang and Fire Lord Zuko created to be a center of peace in the world between benders and non-benders.

However, Korra quickly discovers that beneath the beauty of the city lies the underbelly of crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to tear republic city apart. Knowing that her responsibilities involve keeping the city peaceful, she discovers new allies in the form of pro-bending brothers Mako and Bolin and an even greater threat than she ever could have imagined. The leader of The Equalists, Amon. Behind the mask is a scarred man who has a power that makes even the quick tempered and fierce Avatar crumble to her knees.

Aang

Aang
Aang

Personality: Aang is a pacifist at heart, and he tends to avoid conflicts and solve things without fighting. He is not a serious person. He would rather goof off and do things fun before getting down to business. Though, he is determined to protect his friends and save the world.

Bending: Aang didn't master all the elements. Firebending is pretty difficult for him. For advanced bending, Aang can freeze water, but he cannot bend metal like Toph or shoot lightning like Zuko.

Korra

Korra
Korra

Personality: She is the opposite of Aang. She's blunt, aggressive, and a bit hotheaded and rather use action to solve her problems.

Bending: Unlike Aang, she pretty had every element under her belt except for air. Due to her personality and fighting style, she cannot master airbending well or tap into the Avatar State. She does not have a strong spiritual self like Aang does. In advanced bending, Korra does not have any skills.

I'll leave it at the point.

Who is the better Avatar? We can talk about character wise, strengths, and more .

Thank you for reading this blog.

Hello, everyone! Welcome to the first blog of the Legend of Korra reports. I decided to titled it as discussion. Let me know if there's a better title until we catch up to the current episode and we call this Weekly Legend of Korra.

This blog is dedicated to the fans and wiki editors who are working on Legend of Korra. Please everyone give them a round applause to the wiki editors. Let's go over the first two episodes.

Plot

Episode 1: Welcome to Republic City

Forty years after the death of Avatar Aang, the new Avatar was discovered in the South Pole; a waterbender named Korra. Displaying talents at an early age, she is sent to train for her life to become the Avatar of this cycle. With three elements down and one left to master, Korra must turn to a master who can help her realize her potential and carry on the legacy of Aang.

Episode 2: A Leaf in the Wind

As Korra grows accustomed to life in Republic City, she begins training to master the art of airbending. As challenges mount for her in her new environment, Korra becomes enamored with the latest sport: pro-bending. Tenzin tries to keep her on the right path but the two continue to fight until a realization is made that causes everyone to see things in a new light.

Discussion

What did you guys and gals find good and bad? What things did you miss from this Avatar the Last Airbender series that this show lack?

Good

  • Refreshing Changes: Korra is a strong female protagonist who is the opposite of Aang. She is a bit brash, reckless girl who fights rather than run away.
  • Pro-bending: Legend of Korra brings some action with a tournament that pits three bending disciplines together.
  • Legend of Korra's sense of humor is just bright as its predecessor.

Bad

  • The transfer between two series is pretty rough. For those who have not read Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Promise, the questions that are left unanswered still remain elusive in the first two episodes. Viewers do not have a chance to hear Katara's story on Zuko's mother. Don't worry, the show will fill some gaps as it progresses.
  • In ElfenLied1012's review of Legend of Korra: She and fans talk about how the setting in Legend of Korra lacks the sense of exploration and experiencing different cultures, philosophies, and different martial styles. There are more things she points out. Please check out her first impressions.
