Aang. This is no contest. Korra was a whiny entitled cunt who blamed everyone but herself for everything.

Benjamin Perez
Benjamin Perez

Aang. He had a solid maturation throughout the series, and forced himself to commit to a fight he himself had decided he wasn't ready for at the end

Korra wasn't too bad to be honest, but her character development reset every season and she was overshadowed by her supporting cast (episodes like The Sting show that Mako & Asami can support their own story just fine. Hell, just make the Mako & Asami show)

honorable mention to Avatar Wan (nigga done stole fire)

His circumstances were also a lot worse and he was a confused 12 year old from an era that ended 100 years ago in bloody conflict.

Korra was a hyper-competent young woman who had everyone bending (hue) over backwards to please her and win her love. Several of her villains just outright destroyed themselves without her having to do much.

Aang, and it's not even close.

I watched the first season of Korra and I only hung with it that long because I loved the first series. But where ATLA had an ensemble of well-defined characters with good hooks, motivations and conflicts, Korra is just a mess of a character. Clearly they want her to be headstrong and brash and kind of a bitch at first but it's extremely important that you like her so they vacillate a lot; even when she kind of jerks Mako and Bolin around in that dumb love triangle episode they pussyfoot away from having their heroine ever do anything to unlikeable. As a result she becomes a cypher, a blank with HERO written on the front instead of a character. With Aang you had some poignancy that he was just a kid who wanted to paraglide and hang with his buffalo and not deal with all this hero shit; Korra's main conflict is she's not as powerful as she wants to be and it's kinda fuckin boring.

She got some high end tittays tho so it balances out.

whiny

Outside of Season 3 he hardly "whined" as opposed to being upset about things like one of the remnants from his old life getting kidnapped. Even then, when he did actions like hiding the news of what happened to Katara and Sokka's father he was surely shown as being at least objectionable for it. While Korra does lovely things like threaten a judge, cheat with Mako, conspire with Zuko's grandson to drag other countries into a civil war, keep some portale open despite finding out how humans lived in terror of spirits, and get indignant at getting called out for the spirit messes all while being either excused for it or brushed off.

Korra is an atrocious affirmative action baby early on. From her design (brown), to her characterization (whorish, thuggish), to the events she plays a key role in (makes a nuisance of herself in Lin Bei-Fong's city but it turns out Lin's just a scorned woman). Korra even starting with most elements mastered (but not wind for a token miss) is a warning sign.

Josiah Foster
Josiah Foster

Brown Korra a shit.
A SHIT
Aang wins by a landslide. Learns to master all the elements patiently, tends to avoid conflict instead of inciting it and rushing head on, develops his own techniques, overcomes his own insecurities, learns that he cannot let go of this world because he cares about the people he loves too much, figures out a way to win even when all odds are against him.
Honestly, the only good thing to come out of LoK is this trailer and porn.

Book two
Don't get me started on how poorly they handled spirituality in that show.

brown thuggish
I feel they could make it work if they make her learn a lesson and become a better person. It seemed like her character growth was meant to be reverse of Aang. Where Aang is a pacifist that has to learn how to deal with violence Korra is a violent persont that has to learn how to deal with things peacefully.

Also, I hate how they shit on the President of Republic City even though he's right and one of the few rational characters on the show along with Lin Bei Fong.

Korra is shit. Shit in every way, and everything she did is shit.

Start with her development. The bitch can bend all 3 elements when she's a goddamn toddler, whereas it takes other Avatar's months and years to master even a single bending discipline. But Korra is just super good so she can bend anything she wants! Except air of course, air is too hard for Korra, she fails the training all the time. But then when she is fighting Amon's lackeys, suddenly she finds out she can airbend! And how does she react? Just a simple "I can airbend? I can airbend!" and then she never trains again and is using advanced airbending techniques like she was a fucking nomad by birth.

Then we go on to her decisions. All of them are shit.
First season she decides to fight the equalists. Funny that she ends up fighting people saying "Benders are being massive cunts" but being a massive cunt and attacking a politician who upset her.
Second season she decides to open the spirit portals. Worst decision ever, Aang's arc showed us spirits like haybi (is that how you spell that?) and Koh, which Korra lets loose on the world. She decides that Wan (a shit character and a terrible plot device though he may be) was wrong about spirits despite living with them for most of his life, and severs her connections with her past lives, literally being the most failed Avatar of any Avatar ever. We could go further and further into how Korra's arc fucks up the concept of spirits, such as when it turns out the spirit world is ever changing depending on the Avatar's feefees and how spirits are now wacky and zany instead of personifications of concepts and basically demons, but the point is that Korra had the worst idea ever period.
Third season, turns out everyone gets new bending for no reason because harmonic convergence despite the fact that this isn't how spirits work and isn't how bending works, even within the bullshit explanation they provided in Season 2 they retcon it not a fucking season later. So she fights some fags who are anarchists and gay and have no real motivation and can bend in ways nobody should be able to, overall it sucks ass but Korra doesn't really decide anything so who gives a fuck.
Fourth Season she destroys the Earth Kingdom because she tries her hand at playing Miss "Democracy is the only way" and I stopped watching because Korra is an insufferable cunt. But she lesbians so hahahaha.

Fuck Korra.

Zachary Lewis

spirituality

LoK bounced between the extremes of "Korra is just a political figure without a spiritual role" and "spiritz spirit spireets korra can is now some sag."

I feel they could make it work if they make her learn a lesson and become a better person. It seemed like her character growth was meant to be reverse of Aang. Where Aang is a pacifist that has to learn how to deal with violence Korra is a violent persont that has to learn how to deal with things peacefully.

That requires a character who isn't a prog revenge fantasy.

Also, I hate how they shit on the President of Republic City even though he's right and one of the few rational characters on the show along with Lin Bei Fong.

You're not allowed to critique Korra without either turning out to be a villain, being otherwise discredited, or hopping aboard the Korra train.

Chase Thomas
Chase Thomas

That's probably true. Sokka turned out to be a great character despite his weak start.
He would probably have hundreds of descendants due to his pussy-bending powers. He had 6 girls fawning over him over the course of 3 seasons.

Lucas Cox

Aang, no contest.

Why is he cancer?

The power of boners is stronger than any political ideology.

It basically boils down to Aang being an actual character who is likeable and works hard to get shit done in spite of his mistakes as opposed to Korra who is a whiny, self-centered bitch who can bend three elements right off the bat and never has to deal with the consequences of her numerable and wholly terrible actions.

It was a retcon. The Avatar already had a backstory of being the world's spirit. Not to mention how it shoehorns a dualistic Near Eastern rivalry into a Far Eastern setting.

Hudson Moore
Hudson Moore

best part about that is, they fucked it up. Raava and Vaatu are obviously based on Yin and Yang, two sides of the same coin, with neither being good or evil and instead, they must balance each other out. But the creators are such astonishing hacks, they turn that deep philosophical idea and turn it into obliquity good vs evil shit, just like any shallow libtard douche who claims to be Buddhist for street cred or some shit.

bonus points, white is suppose to represent masculinity and black is suppose to represent femininity, way to fuck up again ya douche canoes.

I became disgusted with Korra since the very first episode. Aang had numerous episodes of great character development. My favorite ones are the ones were he was terrified going into avatar state. He didn't want to hurt the people he loved. He even abandoned complete control over avatar state to save Katara.

Korra goes into avatar state to win a air bending race.

Complete bullshit.

Despite how bad the plot was, I still watched ever single episode of Korra. So I guess it's not completely shit.

But I like to imagine they could've done something really interesting with Korra, especially when she lost all her powers except for air bending during her fight with Amon. They could've made her work to gain back her three lost elements, elements that she was just brute forcing into working, and improve her spiritual connection, which was totally how I thought it was going to go, but not a second later, poof! "Ah gee, here's your power back, kiddo." What a fucking waste.

Like I said, Korra is an affirmative action baby. Her mere pitch (a mud Avatar who's a stronk womyn) shows this. Since there isn't any other examples of two Avatars being so closely related it's apparent they contrived a scenario to force her in.

Well, a lot of what I have to say was covered by previous threads but basically, they turned Eastern mythology based show into a good vs evil story instead of balance. It has a very skewed view of nature especially when it comes to the stuff with Wan. Because nature is pure and good and man is evil despite the humans hunting for survival but Wan stops them. That pisses me off so much. It's such a shallow view of nature that I don't think the creators have been out in the woods before. If I go further then I'll start rambling.

My biggest gripe with Korra was that TLA made a point to show that the villains were somewhat sympathetic and at least understandable, but TLOK made them just be crazy without a clear motivation. Even the guy who ordered Katara's village burned and her mother killed was more sympathetic than Zaheer, who is basically just a mystery regarding his past and his intentions. They even have a bit where he's about to explain his worldview and Korra tells him she doesn't care.

Aang hands down. Korra's successes aren't as fullfilling. simple as that.
Aang got the girl in the end through clear development with determination, willpower as well as a very clear understanding of right and wrong as well as willingness to compromise if & when necessary, as well as believing in bringing about change not just in the world but also within himself
Korra didn't get the guy in the end because she was busy flirting with his brother (who really shouldn't have gotten have shafted as he did) and then kept whining about her stupid shit and then went from not only setting both brothers against each other but then decided to go for the one chick with daddy issues, and let's not forget that about the times when she didn't do shit when her family was in danger or when her own uncle pulled some deus ex shit or when rather than helping those around her or lessen her whining, she insteads runs off.

tfw 2 friends of mine both think korra is the superior one
wan
That dude's even worse, bryke playing you with that false nostaliga dude

Several of her villains just outright destroyed themselves without her having to do much.

Amon & Zaheer had the potential to be a greater character than the sum of their parts imo but then they get completely shafted
you are part of the problem

Fingers crossed Voltron LD isn't as shit

Bentley Flores
Bentley Flores

My biggest gripe with Korra was that TLA made a point to show that the villains were somewhat sympathetic and at least understandable but TLOK made them just be crazy without a clear motivation.

Amon was a supervillain leading a mob out for bender blood. Putting aside how there wasn't any signs of tension between benders and non-benders to awaken auch a rampage in TLA, his backstory was dumped at the end by a side character (daddy issues).

Unalaq didn't have a consistent characterization. Bouncing from some Northern Water Tribe Supremacist Luddite to some cultist of a dark god. Even the angle he was a spirit worshipper doesn't work since it doesn't address what made him figure helping Vaatu was a dandy idea.

Zaheer was muh chaos with a weak backstory surronded by gimmicky goons. Season 4 tried to make him some mentor for Korra but of course it flopped.

Kuvira was a forced villain. They obviously intended her to be some "dark mirrior" of Korra doubling as a post-WW2 Nationalist (if not just Hitler) analogue. Problem here is that it was established the Earth Kingdom royal family was a mess with the prince being a spoiled brat. The season failed to establish what made Kuvira such a danger she had to be stopped before there was talk of unseen concentration camps, let alone the giant robot. She dumps her backstory to Korra in a cheap therapy session, surrenders despite having our heroes right ehere she wants them, and gets led off to jail with Suyin telling her to stay forever.

None worked.

Matthew Adams

You know…what if there was a soldier who was loyal (some say devotedly loyal) to Kuvira and when he found out she surrendered without a fight, he felt betrayed and formed his own Earth Empire group…sort of like an Earthbender Big Boss?

Kuvira did nothing wrong. She was by far my favourite character in this mess.

But yeah, Aang's better.

Evan Anderson
Evan Anderson

Allow me to be a little contrarian. Both are more or less the same.

However, Aang had better teammates. Sokha, katara, Toph had different ideas on what to do in. Aang managed to listen to his them well. This made his character felt more developed as he learned to handled situations in different episodes by acting on advice given by different teammates or mentors and learned from them. He is a bland character being made more interesting by more interesting characters.

Katara is boring. Her friends are boring. Her mentors are boring. A bland character surrounded by bland characters producing bland storylines and felt no development.

Korra couldn't develop because the writers were terrified to have their stronk independent womyn of color ever actually be wrong about anything. Even though she's a pigheaded braggart who doesn't seem to understand anything about spirituality or really be concerned about helping people, the whole world bends over backwards to let her play hero without actually having to learn anything or change at all.

It's like somebody made the whole Korra/Republic City setting with that kind of arc in mind aspects like Pro-Bending and Equalists make sense in light of technological progress and diminished spirituality, and having a decidedly unenlightened religious leader plays into that but then some idiots who had no idea what they were doing came in and actually wrote the plot. The premise for the first episode of Korra is great but it's all fucking downhill from there.

This. Writers are too chickenshit when it comes to female characters, they just cannot let anything bad happen to them. However, something bad happening to a character is what makes them interesting; don't misunderstand me, I don't want torture porn, but what I mean is that a character has to earn their victory by overcoming the obstacles.

Take for example Luke Skywalker, when the first movie begins he is just a farmboy, the only special skill he has is that he is a talented pilot. For everything else he needs to rely on others, he cannot use any force powers, he doesn't know how be tough in a bar, doesn't know how to negotiate with a smuggler, is a poor shot with the blaster and has no combat experience. But that's a good thing, because he has friends so they can complete each other, and even in the end the only reason he makes it to the end of the trench is because Han show down the last Tie Fighter.

I could find more examples where a character first has to get dragged through the mud before they can earn their victory. I think the only reason why Ellen Ripley turned out such a good character was because all the roles were written before the sex of any character was known.

Or degenerate. Or sodomite if you want to be old-school.

They did have those parts where she lost her bending and the time she got put in a wheelchair. The problem wasn't that nothing bad ever happened to her, it's that she doesn't earn her recovery or learn anything from the experience. Every time she fucks up everyone just goes "oh that's ok".

She doesn't have a character arc where she learns how to overcome her problems like Luke does, she just wins in the end because she's supposed to despite being a jackass. It's extremely frustrating because the premise for book one is perfectly set up to tell a very satisfying story even with the characters all being the same at the start. How do you fuck up a villain that's a bloodbender and not have any cool bloodbending fights?

Chase Powell
Chase Powell

What about them? She got kicked into a wheelchair by a villain with a weak backstory and motive (MUH CHAOS) who later got shoved in as some forced mentor, Asami got shoehorned in, Toph got shoved in for fanservice (while ruining her), and most importantly of all she doesn't become humbled by her situation then transform how she handles issues. She still charges into battle with Kuvira and fail to provide an alternative to the current mess.

Jayden Russell

What is Book Three and Four
I said no torture porn. There was nothing gained from putting Korra in a wheelchair, she went emo for a couple of episodes and was back to bitch afterwards. Seeing a character be down is fun if we get to see them lift themself up again and rise beyond what they were before. In Korra's case there was no improvement.

I know his relapse at the end of S2 was due to corporate meddling, but it added a layer of uncertainty to his arc that kept the viewer guessing.

I know his relapse at the end of S2 was due to corporate meddling, but it added a layer of uncertainty to his arc that kept the viewer guessing.
I didn't know that his relapse was corporate meddling, but I think it actually made his arc better. In S1 Zuko is desperately chasing the Avatar who keeps slipping out of his grasp, usual cartoon stuff.

Then at the beginning of S2 his one and only chance of redemption is taken away because he is no longer an outcast, he is a public enemy. Zuko never really abandoned his chase for the Avatar, he simply made peace with the fact that he can never get his old life back, even if he did capture the Avatar. He is like a drug addict who kicked his addiction not because he wanted to be clean, but simply because he could no longer get his fix.

But when Azula comes back and offers him redemption he relapses exactly because he never was really clean. He had made peace with the fact that capturing the Avatar would be pointless, but now all of the sudden capturing the Avatar had a purpose again. Only later does he really repent, after he had gotten his honour back he abandons it out of his own free will and not because circumstances force him to. This is the time when Zuko makes an actual choice, and it makes his redemption so much more stronger than when he settled down in S2.

The funny thing is that the writers have backed themselves into a corner. Korra and Asami will never have drama between them and will be huge mary sue's, meanwhile the Bolin and Mako are unlikable. Besides Andrew Dobson and people like him I don't think this comic has much of an audience.

It's not made for anyone but them and their autistic fanbase that thinks they shit gold (and they usually overlap), Bryan and Mike are only doing this, really, to pull a George Lucas and fuck with the fanbase by raping and killing Avatar and then defiling its corpse with Korra. They're just so fucking bitter than Aaron did their fucking anime wannabe show better than they ever fucking could.

Jonathan Ross

They're just so fucking bitter than Aaron did their fucking anime wannabe show better than they ever fucking could.
I don't understand. Aaron who? and what show did he do better?

I've talked with someone who liked korra and liked korra more than aang, for them it boiled down to korra struggling and getting her ass handed to her and aang basically always winning (minus the time he surrendered and the time azula shot him in the back).

korras 'struggle' has superficial appeal but it's just torture porn it's not like she ever learns or grows or figures out some technique (minus season 2s magic blue korra out of fucking nowhere). My biggest gripe with korra isn't who was the better hero or heroic character ( I mean zuko is practically the real hero of the last airbender he struggles and grows and there's more depth to his character than there is to aangs) but with who's likeable, the krew is abominable compared to the gaang. Cuckoldry and backstabbing does not a happy group of friends make, I still bust a gut laughing when in season 1 after bolin catches mako and korra mako tries to chide bolin by saying he warned him about korra, warned him how? "Don't try to date her bro I'll be totally all over that and it's basically your fault for trying" and mako's not even some don juan he's just retarded and goes with the flow. Fuck the entire krew and fuck bryke for writing such miserable unlikable people even the secondary characters are all shitty people.

Henry Robinson
Henry Robinson

I've talked with someone who liked korra and liked korra more than aang, for them it boiled down to korra struggling and getting her ass handed to her

But that's because she does retarded actions. Aang never has his ass handed to him allot BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHEN TO RUN.

Most of the show he EXISTS in a perpetual state of ass handage! The world is fucked and he has to fix it. He's always on the run or in danger.

Korra, on the other hand, has bountiful resources and so many advantages, that she only ever gets her ass handed to her because shes a moron.

So I guess I understand why that appeals to the millennial crowd.

Nathan Lopez
Nathan Lopez

Aaron who?
Aaron Ehasz, the head writer for ATLA. Basically he was the person responsible for the insanely tight writing that made the show so good. He also stopped Bryke from doing all sorts of stupid shit. The most famous case was with Toph, who was originally supposed to be a boy that would cause a love triangle between Aang, Katara and himself. But what should be even more noteworthy is that he's basically 100% responsible for both Zuko and Iroh's characters. You can read more about it here archive.is/jfFAt

Chase Sanders

Aang struggles because he's a 12 year old and he has a murderous empire trying to chase him down. Korra struggles because she's a moronic fuckup who never learns her lesson and has to have everyone else tell her how to stop being a fuck up, and sometimes things just work themselves out and she doesn't have to do anything.

Learns to master all the elements patiently,

Okay I will nearly agree with this except for the one time he wasn't patient. Season 1 Episode 16, The Deserter. The episode where Aang meets Jiang and immediately without patience wants to learn firebending believing it to be his only chance to do so.

Now I merely correcting the statement not as a jab at Aang, not this episode was beautiful to teach us the dangers of rushing into something no matter the reason. Korra NEVER had a moment like this. She just didn't, she punched her way through conflicts presented to her. She's as boring as Superman. (Unless Supes is fighting someone he doesn't have to take it easy on a la Darkseid.)

Adrian Thomas
Adrian Thomas

for them it boiled down to korra struggling and getting her ass handed to her and aang basically always winning (minus the time he surrendered and the time azula shot him in the back).

Um, what show were they watching? Aang at times would get these small victories, but he would still lose in some way. The Library when Appa is stolen from him and the subsequent episodes. Aang tries so hard to cope with this and instead fires off with all of his emotions.

The episode where they're being chased by Azula, that's a draw and only a small victory if you count it for them leaving alive. Not everything was about Aang though. IT was about the cast in general. Sure Aang is an intrinsic part of the cast being the main character, but the journey isn't solely about him.

Korra tried to emulate the same thing and it didn't work that well because it tried to put to much emphasis on her and not enough of the rest of the cast (from what I experienced.)

ATLA is like a Super Sentai series that has it's focus split between the whole team and tells a story for each member whilst solving its over arching story.

LoK is a red-centric Sentai series. One that tricks you into believing the team is going to get as much development as red, only to stiff them when it matters.

Korra NEVER had a moment like this. She just didn't, she punched her way through conflicts presented to her. She's as boring as Superman. (Unless Supes is fighting someone he doesn't have to take it easy on a la Darkseid.)
Kind of, she rushes into everything without thinking it through. But unlike Aang, who realizes the consequences of doing that and see that he hurts people, Korra never had that. She always put the blame on other people, or someone tries going like "Nononon Korra, it's not your fault. You're perfect."

Austin Martinez

Some fuckwits say Season 3 is better, but I'd say that's the most APT example of "Korra gets her way because fuck you"

So she opened up a portal to the land of the dead essentially, and it starts killing the city, and she gets kicked out RIGHTFULLY, but whatevs now I have an awesome traveling HQ!
And for no reason at all, air-benders are granted power. Despite establishing just how it doesn't work that way last season!

So how convenient. Her arrogant shittery that should have ended the world doesn't.

Hunter Torres
Hunter Torres

There's another element to it, also: Aang has values and principles. He doesn't want to kill, he abhors violence, he's a vegetarian, he wants to be friends with everyone and have a carefree life.

Korra, on the other hand, can be summed up with her first line of the series, "I'm the Avatar, you gotta deal with it!!" – She's powerful and special and deserves special treatment and no one can tell her otherwise.

Wyatt Diaz

Korra, on the other hand, can be summed up with her first line of the series, "I'm the Avatar, you gotta deal with it!!" – She's powerful and special and deserves special treatment and no one can tell her otherwise.

It's the perfect set up for her character arc about learning humility and putting other people first. The character arc that NEVER HAPPENS. How did they fuck up what should have been a simple story?

This thread is making me want to rewrite the first season into something not shit. Maybe once I've finished my current project.

Isaiah Thompson

You should turn it into a graphic novel.
Re-write Korra
Fix literally every mistake Bryke made and unrape the franchise.
Make a straight Korra shipping canon.
It becomes wildly popular, btfoing the fan base, Bryke, and impressing Nickelodeon.
They hire you to make a new series for Avatar and you choose to make one that completely ignores the events of Korra.
You saved the franchise and our childhoods from two hipster douchebags and current year politics.

Matthew Anderson
Matthew Anderson

One thing to remember is to remove anything Wan related. Redoing it to make it fit in the lore or doing something similar to the concept. Just don't do it. You have to really dedicate yourself, if you're gonna go super far back in time, to studying the lore and making everything fit properly as much as possible. Otherwise you end up like Korra.

Nathan Lopez

Or have it be that Wan is full of crap and a well-known bullshitter.

You'd have to really dedicate yourself to it.

Matthew Morales

Well, was going to have some ancient spirit basically saying "Yeah..Wan is full of crap, here's how it really goes"

Anthony Morgan

That would be neat. Or heck, you can just have a spirit go:

"But Wan's only 345 years old in spirit years. He literally could not have been present for the events he says he was for"

There, stupidity diffused.

Chase Hall
Chase Hall

I'll bite. Another idea could just be to say:

<"Wan is a trickster spirit. He preys on the thoughts of gullible humans and feeds them lies."

Alexander Rodriguez
Alexander Rodriguez

"Look, all that talk about Wan being the first and just easily gaining abilities from Lion Turtles is just a bunch of horseshit. Heck, Wan's a known bullshitter..you see, Raava and Vaatu thing? Not the spirits of good and evil but of order and chaos..even then they are fragments of the great spirit of Order and Chaos"

David Sanders
David Sanders

"Raava and Vaatu?"
"Yes, those are whom we are, one is the other, and the other is one"
"But wan says you are the worst of enemies!"
"One cannot be enemies with what he is. What we are will always be, and has forever been. We have known Wan, he sought to end the balance in his arrogance and an army of sycophants, and that nearly led to the destruction of the world, only the true avatar, managed to stop the usurper. He now slinks around as a shadow, whispering temptations of revolution and chaos against all that he failed to achieve in life. The Nihilist seeks only the destruction of the cycle he hates so dearly"

Jacob Price
Jacob Price

This is actually better than what I had in mind. You see what I had in mind is that thanks to what Korra did, the Spirit World is now at an imbalance to the point that the Spirit World is in turmoil to the point of war, and both Order and Chaos had chosen their champions in certain humans as they brought their war to the Human World and that war also awakened powerful and somewhat primal spirits, wreaking havoc in both worlds..of course this is during the follow up series

And the 4th series? Humans are getting payback and planning to invade the Spirit World..and ends with humans losing connection to the Spirit World…thus Bending left the world.

Luke Sullivan
Luke Sullivan

No, just get rid of it. The entire story absolutely rapes the lore of the show pass just Wan being a cunt. Just leave the Avatar's origin a mystery, never address it. In fact, fuck season 2. if you're going to do season two, just do the civil war aspect and explores those themes instead of the spirits. Though really, if it was me, I'd just stick to the Equalist plot throughout the entire series and make them the main baddies

Luis Lopez
Luis Lopez

Regarding the Avatar's origin I remember the old Nickelodeon site said that the Avatar spirit is the spirit of the earth itself.

Adam Flores
Adam Flores

The problem with this though, I believe, is the fact Wan is still just a cunt as oppose to being a good Avatar, which is the entire point of the Avatar.
Just cut him out, he doesn't work at all in the series.

Wyatt Ortiz
Wyatt Ortiz

The original idea of Korra was that it would be limited to one season in one city, which is why it shits the bed even harder when they leave the city at the start of season 2. Being a smaller setting and a shorter story would tie into Tenzin and Korra's character arcs (where they each compare themselves to Aang - there's even a giant statue of him so they could have had neat visuals for this) except that they didn't keep the story limited like it was originally intended to be and the characters didn't have arcs at all.

The more I think about it the more I'm convinced that the Republic City setting and characters were invented by someone else and then given to Bryke, who then made the shitty love triangle plot Aaron stopped them from doing in AtLA and then made three more seasons of shit without a plan or thinking at all.

Lucas Watson
Lucas Watson

I heard some executive meddling may have happened? The more I read of this though it seems like its mostly Bryke's fault.

Adam Baker
Adam Baker

Nickelodeon did jerk them around with exactly the number of episodes they were expected to make and whether or not it would be continued but that isn't an excuse for fucking up the way they did.

Cameron Moore
Cameron Moore

How I could do it, is that the recurring antagonist in secret would be some spirit of envy/resentment or such that influences Mortals (Or more like finds likeminded ones and empowers them) in order to destroy the balance

The idea being that Wan was a false usurper avatar, aided by vile spirits or the like that allowed him to replicate the avatars powers to an extent.
At the time the Avatar through circumstance became an isolated hermit, and only understood his powers later in life, but had a deep connection to nature because he did not know the world of the humans.

Wans story goes against everything the avatar universe is about. It's misanthropic, its stupid, its binary, it portrays cycles as just goods or evils.

And that could be really interestingly played into. Wan is an antagonist that sees himself as a hero trying to end an unjust cycle by siding with "The good guys". Could make for a very shamamamalan twist when he's revealed to be a fraud.

Asher Lewis

He was functionally a spirit bender. Previously it was established that de-powering a bender was the domain of spirit bending. Having that power through bloodbending (which seemed to just be a handwave) doesn't change the magnitude of the power.

Joshua Lee

It's actually just good in general that Zuko relapsed because Mako died. If he had joined Iroh they would have had a much harder time rewriting season 3 around Mako's absence.

Hudson Thomas

I liked the bloodbending idea, since it made it effectively a more permanent version of the chi-blockers chakra point sealing ability, which already existed and wasn't a dragon-turtle deus ex machina asspull. But then the problem was that they used a dragon-turtle deus ex machina asspull to get rid of it instead of reversing it in a way that made sense so it really wasn't functionally any different than spiritbending bullshit powers.

Tyler Davis
Tyler Davis

If you are going to redo the story I suggest a few things.

1)Make the villains: capitalists and/or socialists. The last series are about what happened during wars. This series should be about issues during peace times. Greedy merchants and big governments bureaucrats are never going away. And it could be a far better dynamics than what it had been. Both factions could be equally powerful and evil and Korra is caught at the middle, trying to defeat one faction only to allow another one more power.
2) Remove whatever conflicts between benders and non-benders. They were almost non-existence in the first series and for a good reason. With excellent martial arts, inventions, or general wits, the non-benders are at equal footing and sometimes better than the benders. They are also tight-knit families, why would they want to destroy or oppress their own flesh and blood.
3) Better Avatar Gang. I said before, the Korra gang are fucking boring. Every personalities of them are just a rehash of the old Aang ones and worse. Make it more interesting. Let just say we have one money-loving scumbag, one absent-minded alchemist or something.
4) Get out of republic city. The best part of ATLA is the world building: we got to see different culture, different characters, different art styles, different martial arts. The first season of Korra felt stuck to that place and it never was really felt alive. It felt dead.
5)Don't ever explained the spirit world or the origin story unless you have created an entire mythology that fit the philosophy/theme of the Avatar. Wan story is shit, it made the Avatar, human nature and the spirits world into a fucking meaningless mess.

Elijah Ortiz

The only way to fix Korra is to not have Korra at all.

Aaron Turner

The series was ok up until the end of season 1 when we got
Amon's bloodbending not affecting Korra's airbending because reasons
Aang's ghost being able to energybend Korra because reasons
energybending being able to reverse Amon's bloodbending trick because reasons
So here's what you do.
<Korra doesn't get airbending, Amon kills Mako
<Amon isn't revealed, his backstory didn't happen, he has nothing to do with Tarrlok, and his ability to block chi is a new technique unrelated to bloodbending
<Amon leaves with Korra and later reveals her to the public as being de-bent
<Book 1 ends on a huge downer
<Book 2 is about Korra dealing with her lack of bending and Mako's death. There's serious discussion about assassination so that the avatar cycle can continue.
<Amon continues to be the primary antagonist. Ax the subplot about the new president, have Lin instate martial law and turn Republic City into a police city state in open war against Amon's insurrection. Draw parallels with Suyin and have a whole thing about different types of politics.
<Move the plot from later on where Korra's depressed to Book 2. Have her struggle to get over it, relapsing frequently but getting back up and trying again (like Zuko in the original show). She also has to learn how to be useful without bending and gets mentored by Sokka in this respect.
<Everyone else has shit to do trying to hold down the city, Lin pushes them to extremes here. Move the shit from season 4 with Bolin and Varrick questioning the leadership to here, and have the characters involved actually develop. Asami switches sides and tries to convince Amon that his goals can be met without removing everyone's bending.
<Book 2 resolves the primary conflict when Amon takes Republic City with the help of Asami.

Isaiah Hughes
Isaiah Hughes

<Book 3 opens with Amon busting Zaheer and friends out of jail with coordinated strikes. He tasks them with taking down the rulers of the 3 nations while the Equalists hold Republic Equalist City.
<Korra and friends escaped from the city and managed not to be taken prisoner, except for Bolin. They're hunted by equalists and go on various adventures, reminiscent of the original series (more episodic than plot-driven). Everyone has their own character development to deal with, but primarily they struggle with what to do next without their homes.
<Bolin faces trial for war crimes committed at Lin's orders. There's a major scene where Asami visits him in prison and he confronts her about joining Amon after he (personally) killed Mako. The result is Asami busting Bolin out and the two escaping the city in a dirigible with a copy of city plans that will help with retaking the city.
<Korra actually fares best because she was newest to Republic City. Her Book 2 character development shines and she manages to help the other characters with their problems. Korra tries to band everyone back together but all their own problems are keeping them busy. The events at Ba Sing Se happen more or less the same, which is a catalyst for everyone to reunite and focus on stopping the Red Lotus. This is the Book 3 finale.
<Book 4 centers on Amon launching attacks with Sato tech to take more territory, and the fight to stop him. Kuvira's rise to power is shown, and Lin plays a role in this. Battles between the Earth Kingdom and Equalist City happen regularly.
<Korra and Zaheer are built up as if they're going to fight but when they meet halfway into Book 4 they instead spend one entire episode arguing over their goals and methods, with their allies helping. Korra comes to see Zaheer has valid points about the problems with the nations, and Zaheer realizes (with help especially from Asami) that Amon is becoming an autocrat instead of a liberator, and he's using the Red Lotus to create power vacuums for him to fill. The groups form an uneasy alliance, but over the second half of the season they learn from each other as they take on Amon's forces.
<Book 4 ends with Korra and friends taking out Amon with a few years of character development under their belts. Korra beats him in a regular, non-bending fight. Meanwhile, the Red Lotus fuck off as soon as they realize Korra's friends can handle Amon, and they go after Kuvira.
<Book 5 covers Lin returning to Republic City to retake command under Kuvira's leadership, but various factions fight back. The Red Lotus do some assassinations but quickly realize that chain of command renders this almost useless, so they return to Republic City and band together the gangs resisting Lin. Lin enlists Korra et al to take out the Red Lotus, but when they try we get another long argument. Zaheer explains that the Red Lotus is going to take the city from Kuvira and give it back to the people for real this time, but he needs Korra's help stopping Kuvira. Korra realizes that regardless of the Red Lotus, Kuvira is a much bigger problem and the main threat. Her friends agree.
<The series ends in about the same place, but without spirit world shenanigans or giant robots. The Earth Kingdom thing is resolved by the Red Lotus sending people to reorganize the capital and spread their influence. Future series get teased regarding tensions between Red Lotus City and the other nations. Implied cold war type shit with the Fire Nation and Red Lotus as superpowers.
Just banged it together. Needs a lot of work to tie all the threads together.

3) Better Avatar Gang. I said before, the Korra gang are fucking boring. Every personalities of them are just a rehash of the old Aang ones and worse. Make it more interesting. Let just say we have one money-loving scumbag, one absent-minded alchemist or something.
The problem is that none of those were suppose to exist past a season. Not even the ones past season one. A lot of them have premature closure and that means their characters become useless and pushed to the sidelines (Mako/Bolin, Eska/Desna, Tenzin, Lin and Su despite the Toph scene which I will refuse to accept as canon). Have one overarching narrative and give the characters their own personal beefs that are shown throughout the series that need to be resolved.
You're trying to fix the show, and I like that you cut out the whole Spirits and civil war plot, but it ends up a bit convoluted. Amon's goal was to bring non-bender equality among the world and the destruction of the bender elites so teaming up with Zaheer, who just wants anarchy, is counterproductive and wouldn't make sense that the Earth Kingdom would be an anarchist state since any kind of government would be hypocritical (I know you're trying to play off the idea of the Cold War, but that would work better with Amon, not the Red Lotus). I would just stick to the Non-Bender Revolution, a big Red Scare of sorts, maybe have Amon establish a Non-Bender state.

Angel Powell

Cuckoldry and backstabbing does not a happy group of friends make

You hit on a deal breaker: Korra's posse not being buyable as a close-knit gang of friends.

You could buy The Gaang since while they did have their scuffles, they not only had strong cases for traveling together but still had enough mutual respectful behavior towards each-other. Korra's posse struggled to find excuses to hang around together (especially Asami, who you'd figure would be too busy trying to run her company to drive around with the girl who Mako cheated on her with). Complete with Mako changing jobs.

she punched her way through conflicts presented to her

Which is odd, considering how LoK tried to suggest the lead antagonists had legitimate cases for their actions. Korra never proposed any alternatives to address their grievances.

The notion Korra struggled more can be countered by pointing out how Aang had more characters who were presented as matches for him in battle without resorting to cheap tricks or gimmicks (see Zhao, Zuko, and Azula). Meanwhile Korra started her show having already mastered most of the elements and so they had to keep resorting to letting enemies get cheap power-ups or brand new bending or whatever.

Redoing Korra

The sure approach to redoing LoK is to cut out Vaatu for Koh, make Amon with Unalaq with Zaheer into one character, don't turn Verrick into goofy sidekick, and let Kuvira have a solid characterization.

That's 3 major villains. A holy man who belongs to radical sect that preaches contempt for unearned authority and respect for human excellence (with the Avatar held as a force holding back human potential) who traveled to the spirit world where he learned spiritbending from Koh's aid.

The series suffered from figuring out what to do next.

Brayden Diaz
Brayden Diaz

And it was shit, along with the rest of the spirit wars.

I confessed one thing, I never made it past season 2. All the conflicts are forced and out of common sense. In ATLA, benders and non-benders are never divided, it isn't a racial, or class thing, some were lucky to be born benders and some were not. It is liked getting jealous of your children because they can do math, physics and you can't. The spirit wars, again, there is no need for any conflicts. They just forced it out for no reason.

It might have been more suitable if the Anti-Bender hostility was an Anti-Fire Nation one akin to the modern day contempt China and Korea have towards Japan. But yes, the notion that despite the lack of tensions between benders and non-benders in TLA, Amon was able to amass an army capable of conquering Republic City from them being sore about benders is silly. Especially since apparently Raiko getting appointed was supposed to magically fix it. But then they had Raiko as a pencil pusher getting in Korra's way (and even then his plans were solid enough).

and even then his plans were solid enough
Northern and Southern water tribe lived in the city and were suddenly at odds with each other. And he says he will do nothing about it. Later on he says that nothing is going to happen, so then he asks the military to set up a naval defense - for the nothing that is going to happen.
And in season 4 he has Kuvira do whatever without any checks nor balances (then again it doesn't make sense in the first place as to what help they gave Kuvira on their end,) and is confused when she won't step down from democratically elected power. Also he intended to put the Earth Queen's distant relative on the throne to control with advisors like how Long Feng controlled the Earth King back in Airbender.
His plans were like the plans of every adult in LoK who is not Fire Lord Izumi: incompetent.

Because the only reason any of the three would have for sticking around was because he was the Avatar's boyfriend. And even then he doesn't have to stick around since Suki doesn't follow Sokka around nor Mai follow Zuko in every scene. Bolin was just there because his brother was the one the girls were interested in, and Asami had the Equalist plot but then her plot in season 2 was given to the brothers because they didn't know how to write Asami other than being a love interest. None of the sports team should have been together because it wasn't relevant to any of them since they drop the subject immediately and there are other surefire ways of making money plus they could have just lived on Air Temple Island as acolytes in the first place.

Korra did present a neutral stance at first against the North in season 2. But that fell apart right away. Everyone was telling her to not get involved, with Varrick wanting to start the war so he kidnaps Unalaq. Then they want her to join the war. And she tells Zaheer to not use his gift for this vendetta after hearing him out and their conversation ends because Zaheer never would have listened anyway given how he kills people (denies them freedom) while he pontificates about freedom. And they had Korra talk to Kuvira but to have Korra side with Kuvira would look weird when all her family and friends are on the other side.
It's all a mess like you say. The fixes have to start immediately from the first episode and characters have to be reworked or cut from the show.

This would be the best option though. If you are only given 12 episodes and your only idea is "the opposite of Aang" then just continue the journey of the Gaang in those 12 episodes since that is all you are given. The audience already knows the characters, so if you make another story involving them you just have to work on an opposing force and setting, if it takes place in a different location or time frame.

The writers of LoK should get an award for how much they fucked up the villains. I mean, LoK has abysmal writing all over, but the villains are a botched job at every turn. No Azula and Zuko here, just poorly written and implanted buffoons and strawmen.

a hypocritical commie
It's a pity they didn't play Amon straight, him being a victim of a firebender that killed his whole family and disfigured him. I don't even know why the fuck they even did the whole shitty "twist" since it adds nothing of substance to the plot.

a religious zelot
I guess they figured it was now the turn of the waterbenders to be the bad guys and the writers were too stupid to figure out a good way to go about it so they went with LOL SPIRITS.

a strawman anarchist
At least the guy had a point. The Avatar maintains an artificial balance in the world, keeps humanity from progressing and unifying. It's no coincidence that the Fire Nation made technological leaps and bounds in the 100 years there was no Avatar around, and it's no coincidence the post-racial utopia free of hate that is Republic City came about after such a period. If Aang didn't have his bitchfit and ran away the Fire Nation would never have had the space and time to build up their industry and drag the world into modernity, the Earth Kingdom would still have remained a despotic, oppressive monarchy. But, you know, that's all fine and dandy because MUH BALANCE. The world would be a better place without the Avatar.

and a fascist without a plausible motivation for concentration camps
The really hilarious part is that this, and her going completely homicidal on everyone, was the only way they could make her the bad guy.

Rewind back to the beginning of the season. The Earth Empire is complete chaos, anarchy and lawlessness is rampant as the nation tears itself apart now that the ruling dynasty has been extinguished. What does the ruling council of Republic City decide to do? Put a hedonistic, self-absorbed manlet of a puppet on the throne. A person that is completely lacking in the skills necessary to restore law and order in the realm.

Kuvira calls out to her old mentor to step up to the plate and assume control, since she is the only person around with the clout, power and seniority to pull it off, but the old hag bitches out like she does every time events demand she rise to the occasion, so Kuvira goes and tries to do what is best for the people the only way she knows, but since the writers are incompetent ass monkeys they are incapable of having a conflict between the protagonist and the antagonist without a clear Good vs Evil, so Kuvira becomes Hitler.

Cooper Williams

Northern and Southern water tribe lived in the city and were suddenly at odds with each other. And he says he will do nothing about it.

I'm failing to see the issue here. He was under no obligation to play World Police.

Later on he says that nothing is going to happen, so then he asks the military to set up a naval defense - for the nothing that is going to happen.

So, he did something?

And in season 4 he has Kuvira do whatever without any checks nor balances

Until she went full coup she did a solid enough job keep order in the Earth Kingdom.

and is confused when she won't step down from democratically elected power.

So she caught him off-guard.

Also he intended to put the Earth Queen's distant relative on the throne to control with advisors like how Long Feng controlled the Earth King back in Airbender.

And? Putting the queen's closest available relative up is solid enough for having a force for stability. If Kuvira had aided him it would have surely worked.

Not seeing your source for saying Raiko is a mess of a leader. From what's been shown he ranks with Lin (another punching bag) as being the most worthy characters.

Oh god, guys, it's worse than I could have imagined. I mean, I actually didn't mind Asami winning with the Korrabowl in the end. Hot girls making out is something I have no problem with. But this comic is literally just gay pandering. Korra literally comes out to her parents, Kya also says she's a lesbian. Apparently they need to say that Avatar Kiyoshi was bisexual too and talk about how the nations deal with homosexuality. This is the kind of bullshit I can't stand. It can't just to be two girls making out, no they have to moralize. Also apparently the comic fanwanks Zhu-Li too for grrrrrl power.

I didn't actually read it by the way, this is me seeing someone else's reactions second-hand. In any case, E;R is apparently doing a video on it, which goddamn it deserves.

Austin Parker
Austin Parker

You don't put an incompetent manlet in charge if you want stability.

Again, the manlet in question is the queen's closest living relative. They live in a monarchy where even a man like Long Feng (a commoner) had to hide behind his puppet's throne. From the standpoint of legitimatcy Kuvira, even if popular, is an usurper.

If only the competent person had played second fiddle to the puppet. Her whole reason for rejecting the offer is because she saw he was a dunce.

She was serious about her little Earth Empire movement that would chase out the foreign devils while Prince Wu was dandy about cutting deals with RC. He could have been capable and she would still would have opposed him for having Raiko on his Friend List.

Still not seeing the mess of a leader.

Jeremiah Miller

Her father was an incompetent buffoon, she was a spiteful harpy, and the next in line is a manlet cretin. I think most people would agree it's time to end the inbred dynasty.

From the standpoint of legitimatcy Kuvira, even if popular, is an usurper.
People didn't seem to give much of a shit about that. In fact, no gives us a fuck what you are so long as you bring in the results. The monarchy was not popular no one shed all that many tears the empresses got chocked to death.

She was serious about her little Earth Empire movement that would chase out the foreign devils
That was a character assassination on the part of the writers when they finally realized the antagonist actually had a point, so they made her Hitler.

Kill yourself, this isn't fucking unofficial fanfic shit where Korra eats Asami alive, this perverts and pisses on the Avatar franchise and legacy. You can get that kind of yuri fetish shit online without it affecting the show but it being in the show itself causes massive fucking problems in the narrative.

What does it pervert exactly? All the other terrible romance in the show that was equally terrible? Mako was a shitty cuck.

Jason Robinson

What does it pervert exactly?
It sullies the work, and it panders to the wrong people. Granted yes, the other romances in the show were horrible, but Korra getting together with someone that she cucked is plausible? Not only she's a horrible person, but also by far the worst avatar that does not have a shred of humanity and decency within her spirit unlike her past lives. The whole idea of Asami getting it on with Korra is more of a yuri fanfiction idea than an idea to be used for canon.

Because westerners can't learn a goddamn thing from japs
Some probably do, but seeing how people in current year react to things and how horrible the western industry is moonland's industry isn't all great either, but at least you have creative freedom, they either hid that fact while work on a shit show, or give up their dreams and their nip based ideals.

Let's say you were in charge of making the next Avatar show and were given a high budget and maximum creative freedom. How would you write it, what characters, plotlines, and themes would there be, would you discontinue the events of Korra and set the new Avatar's story and events between it and Airbender in an alternate continuity, and how would it contrast the previous shows?

Angel Williams
Angel Williams

Set over 200-1000 years after LoK.
The world is imbalance, and a wasteland. Only a few places and relics remained.
Many avatars have died to protect the world all thanks to Korra's shenanigans and those stupid rugs.
Next avatar comes into play, and he or she just to stick the middle finger to Korra and Bryke needs to jumpstart the world again. Even if it means to restart the planet once again.
Themes can revolve around nostalgia, reserving old ways, chakras, turnabout, and reincarnation what may have been lost forever, can be found again in a different form. and the love between the avatar and their lover is infinite, and will transcend beyond time and space.
Inspired by Airbender, Kino no Tabi, The Last Unicorn, and Shadow of the Colossus. Explore the lands, help out folk, see some parts or relics that remind the avatar of their past lives and the crew who may have lost something in their life or to rekindle a flame in their heart.

Isaac Wood
Isaac Wood

This is just asking for trouble, but I'll go for it
set it well after ATLA/LoK. Theoretically you could make Korra non-canon but it would be pretty hard to justify with the rabid fanbase, so setting it 3 or 4 cycles later removes any chance for a connection
Just gonna ignore the spirit portals altogether
The Avatar isn't the main character
A long time ago the Avatar was doing his Avatar thing when something went wrong and he caused mass devastation
post-apocalyptic setting removes most of the tech introduced in LoK that ruined the unique setting of ATLA
No one's seen the guy since
Main character is some young kid, not the Avatar
could be an Earthbender/Firebender, but not a water/air one since they've been done
The Avatar is old and is in disguise due to his shame over fucking up the world
Past lives don't like him since he fucked up so bad and won't do anything about it
Kid inspires him to try and fix the world with some shit about hope and spirit and yada-yada-yada
They travel around trying to fix problems while trying to keep the Avatar's status a secret
Can have references to past series, but it has to be earned/to give perspective. For example, have the swamp be completely burned down or dead from whatever it was the Avatar did.
The world is imbalance, and a wasteland. Only a few places and relics remained.
That seems to be the only way to move forward with the series now that the Avatar universe has been trashed by Bryke's 1920's fetishism.

It really feels that way, and because it's based on the roaring 20s, mind as well bring on the great depression onto that world.

Hunter Nelson
Hunter Nelson

Korrasami is sunk. Asami turns out to be manipulating Korra and was exposed by one of her victims coming back to expose her
Thanks to Korra's bumbling, the White Lotus is now underground and in the shadows, basically a cabal for good
New Avatar is an Earth bender who had a traumatic experience that it caps his bending ability to only pebble bullets at the start
Said traumatic experience is him nuking his hometown as it was attacked by the returning Equalists…and he triggered the Avatar state
Lots of lampooning of events of LoK, even lampooning Korra's incompetence and the fact that we know more about her romance than her accomplishments
Setting wise? The world looks a bit like 1950's Hong Kong.
Thanks to the open spirit portals and the imbalance between Order and Chaos (retconning Raava and Vaatu as parts of the Greater Spirit of Order and Chaos) had created certain benders with extraordinary abilities i.e an Airbender able to create airblades by snapping his finger, a fire bender who is able to pull a Thunder Break etc.
The main thread of the story is that thanks to the imbalance, the spirit world is in an uproar and are waging war against each other…and the war is spilling through to the Human World with the Spirit of Order and Chaos picking their own "Avatars"…and the war also awakened a primal spirit.
Somewhere in the series, the Avatar was dumped into the spirit world (probably during the final arc) and met with the Great Earth Spirit/Spirit of Balance/Guardian of the Spirit World who restored the past connections and also helped in dispelling the Wan arc as nothing more than Wan being a well-known bullshitter
Aftermath of the war leads to the next Avatar series where the humans will wage war against the Spirit World.

Is that a trick question, OP?

LoK was the Phantom Menace to Last Airbender's empire.

Jordan Peterson
Jordan Peterson

Set in the post-apocalypse. The Steampunk world of LoK has been completely decimated and all that technology has been lost. The goal of the protag is to restore the world to it's TLA state.

Reniggings is outright retconned. It turns out all of it was metaphorical and Rava/Vattu were just illusory spirits that became attached to the Avatar through wacky shenanigans. Absolutely none of the origin story is canon and Korra's relationship with Rava was all pure delusion.

The climax of the first season is the protag uncovering this delusion and breaking it, restoring all the older Avatar spirits.

The most important part: Korra gets to appear alongside the other Avatars, but she never gets a speaking role again. She just stands there in the background, never getting any significant screentime. She's just a patron of the cuckshed, never to have an important role again.

Joshua Nelson
Joshua Nelson

If you're not rebooting Korra entirely, I'd say go BACK, not forward. Easier to capture ATLA's feel and not deal with steampunk crap.
Go back to an Earthbending or Firebending avatar and base the world a few hundred years behind ATLA visually. Visit the Air nomads as they once were, too. I'd enjoy that a lot more.

Joshua Gonzalez
Joshua Gonzalez

True, pre-TLA Avatar with a functioning society of airbenders would be pretty cool.

But then you'd have to pass up a good opportunity to utterly destroy everything Korra established.

Nolan Peterson
Nolan Peterson

Why not have a parallel story?
Have a young Earthbender, the next avatar after the disastrous Korra, living in the post-Korra world and trying to help rebuild.
Have this new avatar grow up without any knowledge of their power, but they are harried by visions of a more peaceful time. They have no idea they are the avatar, providing a contrast to both Aang and Korra, as what is left of the White Lotus hasn't found this new avatar yet.
The visions of the past would tell a story of a past Earthbender Avatar coming of age, and the Post-Korra Avatar would learn lessons through these visions as well as his own misadventures.
Eventually, the Post-Korra Avatar would awaken to their potential, coming in contact with that previous avatar…but the previous avatars are mostly obfuscated due to the interference of a trickster spirit that had latched onto the avatar line during its previous incarnation: Wan.
And so we have a conflict between "avatar" Wan and the avatar line itself, effectively retconning all of the Wan shit as a delusion.

Samuel Perry

In the Not! 1980's, our earth bender Avatar struggles to find what it truly means to inherit the position. He only has Korea to talk to in Avatar state, but ignores her 90% of the time because her ideas and advice are awful. Season one has him fighting rival gangs in Republic City which has now become New York as depicted in The Warriors. Rival gangs war in the streets as the overextended police struggle to keep the peace. MC is a guy on the fringe of the gang conflict only to ensure that the balance between law and order is never upset. His crew consists of differing people. Best friend guy is a small cheese in what basically amounts to the Fire bender Yakuza, with a personality modeled after Bruno from JoJo part 5 and Majima from Ryu Ga Gotoku. Basically a caring and brotherly kind of dude who can fly off the handle and be cold and unfeeling at times. Acts as the MC's line into the gang politics. Main girl/ Love Interest? Is a non-bender in the vein of Suki or Mai, a physical fighter who uses hand to hand combat and weapons. Comic relief is a character more in the vein of Mr. Satan/ Mumen Rider, a guy who is not bad at fighting, but is seriously outclassed by his contemporaries. Cant think of a short plot, but long term plot in that MC's best friend uses his connection to the Avatar to ascend the ranks of his organization and eventually unite the triads, tongs, families, and street gangs. Have it be a clever take on the "Dark Avatar" theme from Korea season two. This guy has all kinds of benders under his control (even Airbenders, as I doubt the descendent of the newly minted airbenders appreciate being shoehorned into monk culture), he acts as the bridge between world (criminal and legitimate) and he keeps balance between the families. The show ends with the two characters fighting man to man, no bending involved. I came up with this in five minutes.

It doesn't have to be a steampunk setting if you go forwards in time. If over a thousand years passed and multiple avatars tried fixing the world (ex.

Can you imagine being a fan of this series and seeing it go this way?
be a young, stupid kid with shit taste
convince myself that I enjoy Korra as a series because there's literally everything else on TV is of lower quality
It's got uhh.. good animation and a really interesting setting and developed characters and really exciting fight scenes!.. I guess
Korra's initial run doesn't go so well, but older fans keep saying it will get better with the next season
They pull it from TV and put it all online
That's better, right? Now we can watch it whenever we want!
Stay with it to the end
Whatever, it's over now, but it was kinda fun while it lasted
everyone is losing their shit because the two female characters walked off together in the end
find out that the creators decided it was supposed to mean they are gay
Oh, that's cool I guess. It's [CURRENT YEAR] and everyone tells me that this is a good thing. Don't want to be the one person who isn't happy about this thing everyone else is happy about
Find out there's going to be comics that continue the story
oh cool! This means they can do some crazier stuff because of less budget restrictions and they can probably use all the ideas they had to drop from the show!
Every single fucking page is just Korra and Asami walking around talking about their feelings
Every character they meet only wants to talk about gay romance and feelings
several major plot points have been revised to be about gay love
This is just a book about gay stuff that happens to star Avatar Characters
The only silver lining is that the less outspoken fans will become less and less tolerant of this kind of shit. In a few years time, the audience they thought they had will be a small cloistered gathering of 30+ year old childless women, and the young audience they were trying to influence will reject all this homofag feelings shit on sight.

I started watching Airbender in June 2014 and finished it within a week. I was having an empty feeling of not being able to experience a show as good as it ever again, but then I heard that there was a sequel series on air. I watched the first two seasons while still on the high from the first show, but I definitely had a creeping suspicion in the back of my mind that what I was watching wasn't very good. The third season started later that month, and the fourth aired that autumn, so the post-airbender high was wearing off right as the Korra finale aired. When I went for a rewatch of both shows I was astounded by the drop in quality that I had somehow missed.

I like how it was portrayed in the fapfic that got posted here, written pre-comic and still ongoing I guess. Neither of them are portrayed as the sharpest knives in the drawer and they fucked up their little yuri tryst really bad. Of course they lez out in the fapfic but that is while being fucked by the H-game style MC based on Patrick Bateman.

What if the dykes are just an excuse to have a harem for your power fantasy wherein you are the explicit insert? That's what I always thought dykes were.

To be honest the fag shit doesn't seem do be possible to be induced, unless the hypothesis about abuse and pathogens being a significant contributing factor during adolescence is true.

I also suspect that much of these claims of increased rates of faggotry are false because in the US Survey we've seen a decrease in faggotry as they are no longer compelled to breed and pass on their defective genes. More likely the data is being manipulated or made up out of whole cloth by those with a political agenda of normalizing faggotry. I see this as psuedo-freudian reasoning, you cannot really change the innate animal so those who go to far were simply naturally weak creatures deserving of death.

SEED's first season is pretty bad by virtue of being a slow re-tread of Mobile Suit Gundam's opening sequence of events. With the exception of Jesus Yamato, season 2 was pretty good.

I feel for all of you. It especially hurts when you watch it as a kid and it was so unique and cool and you didn't know it at the time but those silly kids would go through some of the most horrifying shit and because you related to them, you felt for them. You grew up with them, even though it wasn't real, you felt like you were a part of the adventure. So when it finally reaches the end and you see how they changed as a people and you look back and realize how much YOU changed as a person while watching this show and how it introduced to you new ways of looking at the world, how it inspired your writing, and how animation can be used to tell more stories like that. And then you hear a few years later that a sequel to one of your favorite shows was being made and you're so excited because you hope you'll get the same feeling as watching that show.
And then four years later, you see this and you realize how much the people you looked up to fucking hates you.

Her being the artist for the LoK comic is pretty fitting. Not only she's a hack, but also a greedy whorra.

Hispanics
Are they going to be Filipinos? They are the Mexicans of Asia, so that could work. Native Americans came from the same group as Asians too, but adding in a Mexico would never work in a world that takes place in Asia. Asians and Hispanics are both super violent too. The Cartels aren't too far off from the nightmare that were the Aztecs. The Aztecs used to sacrifice their prisoners with their obsidian blades. They used to cleanse themselves in blood. It was a pretty crazy place to be if you weren't one of them. Imperial Japan was especially gruesome to their prisoners in WW2. Those fuckers had no soul and were prepared to fight down to the last man, woman and child had the allies invaded Japan.

So that could work
But why would you put in ethnicities within the avatar universe in the first place?

Isn't it more like allegories to ethnicities like the Water Tribe are based off of Inuit culture right?

There are already different ethnicities within Avatar. They're all Asian, but Asian is a pretty broad term. There are only three races: Caucasian. Mongolian and Negroid. The fourth is Australoid, but that depends on your point of view. The various ethnicities spawn from those three. Filipinos are Asian, but they're very close to being Mexican due to the Spaniards.

It won't really be a problem unless they introduce a Mexico into the story. That would be retarded as it should stay in Asia. The best option for them if they wanted hispanics is to just make them Filipinos.

Guys, I think I cracked the code for the Legend of Korra comics, and I don't like it.

The reason they're pushing Korrasami in the comic so hard isn't just the usual pandering we see from all facets of the (((entertainment industry))) nowadays. There's a more insidious and pathetic motivation behind it:

Korrasami was the only part of LoK that anyone actually liked.

Pretty much everybody hated Korra through and through. Even the tumblr fans didn't enjoy the actualy storyline and thought it fell apart after the first half of season one. Nobody like Rava and Vattu, nobody likes the two forgettable bad guys who's name and faces I can't even be assed to remember, and everybody fucking hated how Bryke wiped every other Avatar from existence just to prop up Korra as the bestest and mostest important character in the history of the universe.

Do you even remember what happened in the finale? Do you remember what it was about? No. You don't. All anyone remembers, all anyone ever talked about was the gay shit at the end.

That's why the comic is basically just shipping fluff with no plot. Bryke know that without their gay ship, they have nothing. They know nobody cares.

Legend of Korra from the beginning was an attempt at making Avatar more progressive. They made a brown stronk womyn Avatar fighting a mob trying to kill all benders in a forced attempt to ape X-Men (complete with an evul capitalist). And it never got any better until reaching the point of the ending.

That's not true, it got MUCH WORSE, then it got slightly better than the first season (not by much), then it went back to the original "quality"

Well, being greedy and hacks is a part of gook's culture. Those cockroaches are considered subhumans of Asia for a reason and there is nothing worse than americanized gook like that whore, not even american leftists can compete with gook's hypocrisy. Koreans aren't humans, user, just like chinks and kikes.

Kuvira was a shit character and the only reason she did anything impressive was so they could construct a militaristic villain. Kuvira was the worst man with tits offender in the show on top of that.

Fuck you and everyone like you that tries to say anything positive about that character. You are part of the problem.

Julian Gonzalez

Fucking thank you. I was about to reply to these idiots trying to rework her character. It can't be done. Kuvira's a shit character.

I didn't care for Korra. The world building went to shit and seriously went against the whole idea of eastern culture. Not only did the whole idea of prejudice was stupid as fuck but everything about Korra the character just fucking maddening. Aang found out that as the avatar you cannot force people into peace and that's okay. But with Korra she forced FUCKING EVERYONE to accept her and like her and plus she didn't know how the world worked.

Aang - Fucking wisdom of Buddhism.

Korra - Fucking god damn over hyped like no one's cunt.

When? Because he got the Fire Nation to accept peace and with Zuko taking the throne the peace got instituted. The Water Tribes are at peace. The Earth Kingdom is at peace. There was nothing to force since the only opposing force was the Fire Nation. Aang didn't find out anything.

I feel you, when I start a show I have to keep watching it. That's why I don't like starting shows, the only ones I have been able to kick were The Simpsons and Family Guy, but I think that's only because those shows have a million episodes and there is a limit to how much shit even I can take.
