    So the D&D Korra thread is being taken over by Amon sympathizers.

    But he is the hero of the working man

    It is obvious that he is Amon, and is making a power play within the council to keep people off his trail. Nobody has actually seen him waterbend, and he enjoys bossing around benders. The chi-blockers mooks are just there to train up a personal bender army to aid and secure his coup. Because no one dreams like Amon. No one schemes like Amon. No one assembles crack teams like Amon. His ability to remove bending is especially devastating.

    Boy what a guy, that Amon.

    Back when I was reading it, it was only one guy and was intentionally ignoring that Amon has stated in the show that he has no plans of stopping at criminals.

    I am definitely getting the feeling that Amon is the guy that Aang defeated some years ago

    I am pretty sure that's what we're supposed to think.

    I mean,
    immediately after her run-in with Amon, we see a flashback of some sort between Aang some fellow we don't know.

    What other conclusion is there to draw?

    Alternately, it's that guy's kid who swore vengeance against all benders.

    Because Aang didn't have to deal with Sozin, but he did have to fight Ozai.

    Other commentary on a spoiler we haven't seen in the show yet
    It also stands to reason that the three we saw were all the dead members of Team Boomeraang. Zuko and Katara weren't there, and to a lesser extent, Suki, Mai, and Ty Lee. The latter three I can understand, but you'd think that Katara and Zuko would have made an "appearance".

    re: Clip shows

    transformers prime just had a clip show a couple of weeks ago

    it's the first western transformers show to have had one

    and considering it has a much larger budget and will run longer than Transformers Animated, which nearly the entire fanbase loved, i think its fucking hilarious

    maybe they just weren't there

    remember that zuko was firelord at this point, and presumably those other four had other responsibilities as well

    Tarrlok did do bending on screen.
    He Water bended during the raid on the Equalists.
    Tarrlok's team was pretty badass, too. In a fight between them and Chi-Blockers I'm not sure who'd win.

    oh yeah there was pretty much no chance that people weren't going to go all Rorschach re:Amon

  • King RiptorKing Riptor Registered User regular
    Rorschach is admittedly insane though. Its not even a question he is coo coo nuts.
    Amon is quite in charge of his mental faculties oh and his story is utter bullshit designed to make people sympathetic.

    Sooo yeah I don't see Team Amon as anything but a bunch of geese.

  • Skull ManSkull Man Registered User regular
    we have no idea if his story is utter bullshit

  • Skull ManSkull Man Registered User regular
    also you're just confirming what I said

    people are going to be dazzled by his fascist and brutal approach to social justice/crimefighting and his mask and cool voice and presence and aren't going to think too hard about whether or not he's actually kind of a piece of shit

    batman's cool but he sure is a giant dick

  • King RiptorKing Riptor Registered User regular
    I'm calling bullshit based on the events of the last episode but I felt that way pretty much the second I heard his speech.

    I feel the Batman comparison is flawed because Batman has no ulterior motives or end goal. He's just does it out of grief. Amon is doing this for power even if what he says is true to some degree he's already purposefully moving into position as some sort of messiah figure for the morons he's duping.

    Batman shows no discretion in terms of being a dick. Amon does. Wait, that didn't come out right.

    Batman is the hero the people need because Batman says so, Amon is the hero they want because he says so. Fuxk, still not right!

    re: the ep 4 flashback
    I imagine those 3 would be the ones who spent the most time in Republic City. Zuko and Katara presumably ended up back with their people but maybe Toph, Sokka and Aang spent more of their time in the city.

    Also I hope we get some more Appa and Momo if there are more flashbacks. This universe has the best animal companions.

    Batman has plenty of discretion. He's a dick to people who he can't trust.

    Like Hal Jordan.

    Brother Eye wasn't a bad idea per se....

    Also, Amon's identity has been revealed!
    Blum was the voice of one of the reporters at Tarlok's little shindig.

    So I'm kidding. Probably.

    He was laying it on a pretty thick. Maybe the story is true, but his delivery of it, playing to the crowd, is certainly cause for suspicion.
