It's stated by Katara that her bending strength surpassed Hama's, resulting in an immunity to bloodbending, and the Avatar State amplifies benders enough that they can overpower bloodbending. Sozin's Comet amplifies a firebender dozens, if not a hundred times over. Would master firebenders be too strong to be bloodbent?

Katara is wrong, but would only apply to waterbender. Stop with these troll threads

I was actually thinking about Sozin's Comet and the way it affects -- if it does -- firebenders' chakra. Firelord Sozin was believed to have lived for as long as he lived because he experienced the Comet, and firebenders have been described as drawing by solar power to then use their chi to create fire, which is fairly consistent with everything we saw in the original series regarding the sun and the eclipse. So if that is the case, there is certainly a chance they would be able to resist it easier than others could in theory, as it is chi energy that a bloodbender needs to overcome for the target to submit.

But it's obviously a no to complete and total immunity; Katara also simply resisted after focusing, if Hama wanted to knock her out from the beginning she would have. So I'm sorry Cola, but this is kind of always the bottom line from a VS perspective, lol.

I always imagined only waterbenders had the capacity to resist it, so I don't think the Comet would really help.

Pretty much, until we see anyone who isn't a waterbender/bloodbender like Katara or Amon(as emphasized in the DVD commentary in regards to power), 100% immunize themselves(sounds very Covid vaccine of me) from bloodbending.
