    I don't think they've announced what the release schedule is for download services, so we probably shouldn't expect it to be up the same day.

    yes but I want it to be the same day

    which animated television series about brainiac is your avatar from

    It's the Luthor/Braniac hybrid from the first JLU season finale. Y'know, this one:

    third episode was okay. pacing kinda felt weird and all in all, the episode seemed like it just flew by without much memorable content

    though, the first avatar series took like the whole first season to really start taking off (season 2 was when the show truly became a masterpiece)

    i'm thinking about six episodes in, shit's really gonna start going down. can't wait.

    One thing I don't like so far is
    how bending seems super ineffective now. I guess they are trying to make the Equalist guys look strong but Korra couldn't even lay a hand on them.

    Equalists
    I assume they're all trained anti-bender fighters, and they're very good at what they do. While on the other hand Korra & Mako weren't trying to kill them, just stop/knock them out. The Equalists only had to lay a few hands on them and boom, no powers (temporarily).

    On a side note, I'm finally getting around to actually watching the original series since Korra was actually pretty interesting for the first couple of episodes. Its good! I'm about half way through season 2. I assume the chi-blocking stuff Ty Lee can do is the same sort of moves the Equalists have?

    Korra doesn't have a lot of practical experience, and those guys fight in a style she's completely unfamiliar with. And Mako and Bolin are only really experienced in pro bending, so they had even less of a shot.

    Lets keep in mind that Korra isn't a fully realized Avatar and has a personality that jumps to fire.

    Ty Lee never fought Aang one on one.

    Chi blocking style is similar to the indirect approach that is a part of Airbending.
    Also, there was only one fighter with a Chi Blocking style in TLA, now we have an entire movement.

    I've said it in the earlier thread.
    Neither Korra, Mako or Bolin are trained soldiers or even trained by soldiers. I assume that after 100 years most forms of bending have become lax and formalized, aimed at spiritual enlightenment, utility or fighting civilians and thugs. Or in the case of Mako&Bolin, sporterized. The equalists on the other hand are either battlehardened, or have been trained by those who are.

    Notice how bolins defensive moves were pretty weak, while korras, makos and bolins offensive attacks were straight forward and predictable.
    Fighters like Zuko, Aang or Toph used more area of effect strikes or used a number of strikes that made the attackpattern as a whole harder to evade.

    P.S: I'm hoping that Zukos "roaming the earth, being an ambassador of peace" is a euphemism for "Travelling the lands, taking names and kicking ass"

    There's a difference between making benders weak and making Equalist fighters strong.

    One does not imply the other.

    Call it whatever you want, that is a red panda ferret.

    It is even better than the koala otter from TLA.

    I'd love to see some sort of poster around the streets of the town if the equalists step up their game. Something made by benders to give a quick rundown on handling an attack by chi blockers. Maybe:

    Combating Chi Blocks:
    1. Keep your distance!
    2. Get to a public area!
    3. Do not engage alone!

    I wonder if wearing armor over the parts of the body would render chi-blocking ineffective. Something like plain leather armor with metal bits covering the target sites for chi blockers?

  • Munkus BeaverMunkus Beaver Registered User, ClubPA regular
    Oh you mean like being a metal bender

    Yeah that would probably work great.

    See also rock armor.

    I wonder if Amon is somehow related to Ozai. Maybe he was let out of prison and had a family or started a cult.

    I also need see Bolin throw a boomerang at least once.

    I'd think the best way to deal with non benders would be to just engulf the entire area in fire, since you won't hurt yourself with your own fire. Or drop yourself through the ground and attack from underneath.

    Korra isn't really familiar with doing any of this though.

    ...you can do this you know

    It's one of the core tenants of fire bending.

    You can burn yourself.
