    Oh, she certainly has more reason this time, but that doesn't justify her smashing his megaphone, scattering his posters, or threatening him with assault.

    A big part of Korra's story is going to be learning when force should and should not be applied,I think.

    People are all "oh, when Amon takes off his mask, we're gonna learn who it is and bluhhhhh"

    Never stopping to think that if/when Amon ever is shown without a mask, if his story is true, he's gonna just look something like this:

    She was under a lot of stress!

    I guess I'm inclined to cut Korra pretty much all of the slack because she is my favorite main character in a while

    I'm trying not to be suprised but "Mary Sue?" exactly which of the two male creators of the series do these idiots think she's supposed to represent?

    Personally I cannot wait to see the antics an ultra-hot race-car-driving millionaire heiress is going to bring to the series.

    I bet she's gonna be a riot.

    I agree! I think she'll be great; it'll be nice to have the non-superpowered main character actually not be the buttmonkey. That's a rare occurrence.

    I don't think so, at least, not so much. I think she's always going to be kind of brash and aggressive. I guess they could kind of go the easy route where "Bumi had to teach Aang that force can be a GOOD thing so Korra obviously has to learn the opposite" but I'd rather they didn't. Actually a lot of the reason I like Korra is because she's very self-assured. I'd hate to see the show just go down the list of all her possible character flaws and address them one by one.

    Oh, I think she will always be brash and aggressive, and indeed I as well would be very upset if she became a peaceful Airbender monk. Korra is an awesome character exactly as-is.

    I just think that she's going to need to learn to temper her instinct for violence a little, as a bit more decorum will be necessary to take on a foe with the political savvy of Amon.

    I don't even think she's especially violent now, even. If anything, her rigorous Avatar training against bending Masters and her isolation seems to have given her a bit of not knowing her own strength. Like with the original triad guys. All she knew up to that point was "take down the bad guys" it was always priority one to her, and she was never really taught about collateral damage. I don't really think she needs to learn any valuable lessons about violence, because there's nothing she can't learn just by being around people.

    Plus, as others have said, her friend was in trouble. Remember how Aang, a total pacifist, got when Appa was missing? Emotions were running high.

    Well they spent a lot of the first two episodes showing how she tends to be reactive rather than thoughtful and how that just doesn't work in the era of republic city. Korra learning to consider her actions a little more isn't the same as taking away her self confidence

    I think Korra certainly does need to learn some lessons about violence, a fact which is suggested by the show in the very first episode. She rolls into town and tears up a good part of a city block without even thinking about it.

    Same goes for the third episode, where her plan to get Bolin back is literally just to rush the stage, and she defaults to assaulting the protester rather than even attempting to cajole answers out of him.

    I'm not saying that she's wrong to be angry, or that her behavior is out-of-character, but she definitely tends toward violence as the answer to all problems. Just look at the exchange with Tenzin in E2 when she says that she needs to get better at fighting, and he reminds her that there's more to being the Avatar than kicking ass.

    You're right to observe that she will learn just by being around people, but that's learning a lesson about judicious application of force by its very nature. When I say that she needs to learn, I don't mean that she needs to get a moral lecture on the matter by Authority Figure #53; she can and will learn from experience.

    It's a natural consequence of growing up in seclusion where the consequences of your actions are always controlled by others

    I'm not really sure why they did that, Aang traveled the whole world during his training

    I have a feeling Aang did not plan Korra's training

    or if he did, his instructions were not followed

  • KwoaruKwoaru Registered User regular
    Well Katara didn't seem to object to her training at all, and if anybody is gonna be big on making sure the avatar's instructions are followed properly its gonna be his widow who helped him save the world

    Although she did agree that korra should go to the city

    I imagine that Aang dictated that the Avatar should be protected and taught in isolation as that's the training he was supposed to receive.

    I think that the White Lotus have just gone overboard with the notion of protecting Korra, out of the noblest of intentions. To learn how to protect the world, the Avatar has to live in it.

    Well Aang's avatar training was 100% by necessity. The only reason they spent it travelling around was because they were constantly being hunted and the timeline to learn all the elements was a fraction of what most Avatar's have.

    It's similar to working your ass off in the most brutal conditions to provide for your kid, so they don't have to.

    I suspect Katara approving Korra's departure to the city is an acknowledgement that she has been sheltered and needs to get out there and see the real world
