Eight Most Interesting Questions about Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra

The idea of the four elements is something that goes back to alchemy. Before chemistry existed, people used to believe there were four elements, but when chemistry came along we discovered the whole periodic table. I’d love to see a series that throws everything on its head by revealing that there are more than just four elements.

Q #1: Who is the best villain of both Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra?

A: There are so many good villains it’s hard to choose.  Haha.  You know, I’d say Azula is probably the best villain.  She’s certainly the most talked about villain, maybe even more talked about than Fire Lord Ozai.  Combustion Man was pretty hot too though.  And in Legend of Korra, you’ve got Amon, the season one villain, and Zaheer, the season three villain who’s a first of his kind.  Those are some of my favorite villains; there are lots of good villains though.

Q #2: Is Iroh the best character in Avatar, the Last Airbender?

A: It’s debatable whether he’s the best. But he’s certainly one of the best. He’s very kindhearted, and funny, and I think that’s what makes him so lovable. Aang is also very kindhearted, and funny. I think Zuko might be my favorite character, though. He has a terrific character arc.

Q #3: Is the new Netflix show The Dragon Prince a rip-off of Avatar?

A: No, absolutely not. It’s made by some of the same people behind Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra, and it has a similar feel to those shows, but it’s unique and very different. The show is set in a completely different world, with elves, dragons, and a medieval feel. It does feature strange creatures, such as the glow toad, but I don’t think there are enough similarities to even consider it a rip-off.

Q #4: Who would win Princess Azula Firebending Master Lightning generation from Avatar The Last Airbender or Fire Lord Zuko Dancing Dragon Firebending Lightning redirection from Avatar The Last Airbender?

A: This is a hard one! First off, it might depend on whether Azula is still alive in Fire Lord Zuko’s time, and if so, how her skills have grown. I think that Azula can beat Zuko at the ages and the time of when they were both in The Last Airbender series. By Legend of Korra, Zuko’s skills have obviously grown. I’d say he is probably powerful enough in Legend of Korra to defeat Azula as she was in The Last Airbender, but if he’s fighting Azula as an older, more skilled warrior in his own time during The Legend of Korra, I think she might be able to beat him, depending on if she got more powerful.

Q #5: What is your review of each season of Legend of Korra? I thought season one was amazing.

A: Season one was amazing. Season two wasn’t so great for me. Mainly, I didn’t like the changes to Bolin’s character, he seemed to get really stupid in season two. The villain of season two wasn’t very good either. There were a lot of plotholes, and it didn’t make sense why Korra could become a giant energy monster. I’m watching season three right now and it’s great so far. Can’t comment past that.

Q #6: If they did another sequel to Avatar The Last Airbender what would your idea be?

A: There are a lot of ways they could go with it. Personally, I think a sequel that focuses on a secondary or tertiary character could be really good.  For example, Suki was a really great character, I think it’d be great to see a show with her as the main character. Or, it might be interesting to see a show with Tenzin as a little kid. Another thing they could do is make a prequel series. I actually really liked the story in The Legend of Korra about how the benders got their abilities. I’d love to see more from that point in time. Another thing is that the Avatar shows all focus on the Avatar’s journey as they learn to master all four elements. I’d love to see a show set in a time when the Avatar has already mastered all of the elements, and everything related to being the Avatar, yet that’s not enough and they have to overcome other obstacles, just to mix things up. This could have an older Avatar too, on their last legs, that’d be cool to see. Also, the idea of the four elements is something that goes back to alchemy. Before chemistry existed, people used to believe there were four elements, but when chemistry came along we discovered the whole periodic table. I’d love to see a series that throws everything on its head by revealing that there are more than just four elements.

Q #7: If you could bend any element from Avatar: The Last Airbender what element would it be?

A: I’d probably bend water. Firebending sounds like a cool ability, but in practice I think it’s probably one of the least useful elements to bend, because it can only be used to attack. Earthbending is probably more useful than firebending, and airbending is a wildcard. Waterbending I like because it can be used to heal. Waterbenders can also freeze the water; it’s a very versatile skill. Some waterbenders can even bloodbend, which is probably the most powerful form of bending, period.

Q #8: Am I the only one who wanted Zuko and Katara to end up together in Avatar The Last Airbender?

A: No. I think there’s plenty of others who wanted them to end up together. I think Zuko and Katara could have been a good match, too. Mainly because Aang seemed too young and naive in the series to me to have any interest in a relationship, and Katara and Zuko did strike me as older, at least in terms of their personalities.

Ten Most Interesting Questions about Percy Jackson

Percy is like the weird kid who nobody pays attention to in school, then he goes off to camp half-blood and suddenly everyone pays attention to him because now he knows who he is.

 

 

Q #1: Could Percy Jackson win a fight against any of the Avengers?

A: He might be able to hold his own against some of the weaker Avengers.  Against the likes of Iron Man and Captain America he’d definitely be toast.  One weakness to consider is the fact that his sword, Anaklusmos, can only affect gods, demigods, Titans, giants, and monsters.  Since most of the Avengers are humans with superhuman capabilities, the sword wouldn’t work on them.  Would the Hulk be considered a monster though?  If Thor is a god or even a demigod then it would work on him.  Percy does also have the benefit of being able to control water, but the Avengers have all faced worse than that.  Percy is much younger than any of the Avengers, which means that he would not be as physically strong as them.  If he let any of them get up close, he’d most certainly be toast.

Q #2) What would Percy Jackson be like if the series was written by George R.R. Martin?

A: Percy Jackson would probably die at the end of the first book.  Luke would have succeeded in killing him, and book number two would be about Annabeth rising to fill Percy’s shoes.  By the end of the first trilogy Grover would be in charge of camp half-blood, Clarisse would be recruiting an army to help Ares take over control of Mount Olympus from Zeus, and Kronos would have taken over the underworld and killed Hades.

Q #3) Is there going to be another Percy Jackson?

A: It depends what is meant by another Percy Jackson. I think there could be another book. At some point in the future I think it likely will be another attempt at a movie, or maybe a TV show, given the popularity of the series.

On the other hand, there likely will be and already are other characters and series like Percy Jackson.  They’re not exactly the same, but Percy Jackson is a very inspirational series.

Q #4) Could Percy Jackson get his sword pen through airport security?

A: I’d say definitely yes!  The sword is magic, and airport security isn’t equipped to deal with magic.  It can transform into a pen, so it’d look relatively harmless when passing through.  And, I suspect, the government shutdown would make this even easier for Percy.

Q #5) Who would win in a fight between Green Arrow and Percy Jackson?

A: Green Arrow.  And it’s not even close.  He’s an ordinary human, which means Percy couldn’t harm him with Anaklusmos.  Percy’s only option would be to fight him at a distance, but unless there was a huge body of water nearby, Green Arrow has the agility and training to easily avoid any water Percy might attack with.  Plus, Green Arrow has a whole assortment of arrows.  He’d easily win against Percy Jackson, even at a distance.

Q #6) Why does Percy Jackson suck?

A: This is a great question to answer now, since we’ve now established that Percy would lose in a fight against Green Arrow, and likely lose in a fight against most of the Avengers.  Percy Jackson would suck going head-to-head against superheroes, because that’s what they do all day is fight.  Their bodies and their skills are superior.  Percy, however, is incredibly bright.  What sucks about him is his raw power, but what rocks is his intellect.

Q #7) How attractive is Percy Jackson?

A: I’d say he grows more attractive as the series goes on.  Percy is like the weird kid who nobody pays attention to in school, then he goes off to camp half-blood and suddenly everyone pays attention to him because now he knows who he is.

Read more.

Q #8) What if Percy Jackson died?

A: It depends when he died.  At the very best, Annabeth would be horrified, but the world would go on.  At the very worst, the gods would start a war and America would crumble.

Q #9) If the gods go to Hogwarts, which house would they be in (the gods in Percy Jackson)?

A: Zeus and Poseidon would be in Gryffindor.  Hades and Ares would be in Slytherin.  Athena would be in Ravenclaw.  Hermes would be in Hufflepuff.  I think Dionysus would be in Gryffindor, but he’s a harder one to pin down.  Artemis would probably be a Ravenclaw like Athena, and I think Apollo would be a Hufflepuff like Hermes.

Q #10) Who would win in a fight, Percy Jackson or Katara?

A: Two water-benders facing off against each-other!  This is most certainly the closest matched two people we’ve examined in a fight so far.  Like against the others, Percy would not be able to use Anaklusmos against Katara, but she doesn’t usually have a weapon either, so this would just put them on even more equal footing.  Percy’s advantage, however, comes from the fact that water heals him, without him having to do anything.  Just being in water heals Percy, whereas Katara has to actively water-bend in order to heal herself.  Even if Katara did use water-bending against Percy, it couldn’t harm him, because water heals Percy.  Katara would not be similarly advantaged, so I give this win to Percy.
