An excellent post. You pulled together a lot of evidence that supports what I've been saying for years about bloodbending and contextualized it with deeper lore concerning chi and the manipulation of it. Bloodbending really is the highest level of skill among waterbenders. It both demonstrates the highest level of skill at controlling the opponent's movements and the greatest degree of knowledge of how to manipulate another person's chi at the same time.

And Amon took it to a whole new level when he showed he could shut off peoples' access to their own chi. Terrifying.

As far as Aang not breaking out of Hama's grip I imagine the fact Aang had no idea what was going on at the time played into it too. He was confused, terrified, and had Sokka's sword pointed at him for most of that fight.

As with all things in the series I'd surmise that a bender, no matter how great their chi is, most likely needs to know what is effecting them and how to potentially counter that before they can. Katara could do it because she'd been learning from Hama and was aware of what Hama was doing to her where as Aang was entirely ignorant to what Hama was doing.

Great review. This sums up my thoughts on the movie perfectly. The script was generic but it didn't matter because everything else was so unique. The scenery was gorgeous, the action scenes were intense, and the movie never once holds back when it comes to the sillier aspects of the Aquaman mythos. Everyone is riding around on freaking sharks and giant sea horses and not a single character acts like it isn't the most normal thing in the world to do.

Very nice. I wish Iroh II was in the show more. I could have loved an Irohman and Spider-Lin team up! Maybe they could find some other like minded benders and form the Avatengers.

"Although only time will tell how the rest of metropolis and the world, take to a woman representing what have traditionally been considered--"

Wonder Woman: "Oh, go on. Don't mind me, I am just the Justice Leagues secretary, aren't I?"

Yah, that confused me too. There is no adjustment period needed here. The world has seen dozens of female superheroes ranging in power anywhere between rivaling Batman to rivaling Superman. Even Metropolis itself should be perfectly familiar with being saved by a woman thanks to Supergirl.

It's nonsense.

Is it just me, or did anyone else think the girl in that Superman #4 panel was a schoolgirl around Jon's age? I had no idea that was Lois until I read the description.

Also, Aquaman has the best sense of humor.

If Tony is retiring wouldn't it have made more sense for Rhodey to take on his mantle rather than introduce an entirely new character that Tony has literally just met? Then they could bring this girl in as War Machine, but still have her be the one to build and repair the suits. This would create a fairly interesting dynamic between hero and side kick.

A superhero mantle shouldn't be passed around to perfect strangers just because they seem smart. It's a very personal thing.

Also, are they gonna give her a new name or are they seriously going to start calling this girl "IronMAN"? Because... Weird ideas of what constitutes sexism aside, I don't know many women that wouldn't be mad at me calling them a dude all the time.
