is this why the show was taken off nick?
So this is what air benders can do. Sucking the air out of people’s lungs. Just as cool as lightening bending if you ask me
No I don’t think you guys understand this is frightening
Airbenders are pretty much the most powerful benders. A firebender has to create fire. A waterbender is most powerful on the open seas as much as an earthbender is on land. But air is literally everywhere.
The Air Nomads weren’t dangerous because they chose not to be.
you’vE GONE TOO DEEP
Hey, HOLD UP.
While I agree that Airbenders do have a lot of power at their exposure, they aren’t the only ones.
Waterbenders can bend any type of fluid containing water, even blood inside the human body! That’s pretty fucking metal.
They can also take the water vapor out of the air, use their own sweat or even drain the water out of every living thing nearby.
Imagine that ^^ happening to a person..
Next we have fire, the element of destruction. Like Airbenders, they can use the air around them, and transfer it into energy. Firebenders can bend or generate anything fire/ heat related. That means lightning, flames, or extreme heat that has the potential to shape its environment (such as melt molten rock and metal.) Even fire breath!
Next we have Earth. Earthbenders can bend anything related or comprised of Earth, such as metal, rock, dirt, sand, etc. EVEN LAVA. Anything mineral related? You got it. Admittedly, minerals- although extremely easy to come by, are not as present as water or air. But there sure is enough to make use of, and we can’t say Earthbenders aren’t powerful!
This guy just stopped a volcano.
Not only are they powerful, but they are also graceful.
And I mean look at this! Avatar Kyoshi Earthbends a freaking continent in HALF!
In conclusion, fear all benders.
Just for fun, let’s think about let’s think about some stuff the show hasn’t done, and may never do. Bending is obviously dangerous to people in the same way tools are. A rock that grinds powder can crack your skull; fire can cook meat, you’re meat; air keeps you alive but can pick you up and hurl you away; water keeps you alive, but can drown and crush you. We see a lot of that sort of thing in the shows, since wars and whatnot, but the stuff that turns things from “dangerous but cool” like swords, lightning, and Toph to “Ok, I am legitimately kind of freaked out” is when it gets…personal.
Blood bending was introduced in a horror story sort of episode and up top we have someone taking air from your lungs.That’s the sort of thing that invites you to imagine it happening to you and that makes it disturbing. It hasn’t happened in story, but let’s think about earth and fire. These will take someone with talent, I imagine, but should be possible within the rules.
You know what hangs out with all that water in your body? Bones, minerals, metals. Not enough of the last to be workable, I imagine, and you wouldn’t need to when bones are such a larger target for control. Earth does a lot of yanking and shoving, too. Why play puppet master when you can pull a skeleton out of someone.
I don’t know the finer details of fire. Tends be making visible stuff, like fire and lightning, not moving what is there, but lets imagine fire is a byproduct. Let’s imagine they bend heat…and whatever lightning counts as. Electrons would be overpowered, I think, and they’d probably be affecting more than we’ve seen. In any case, getting to the personal level, you generate heat. It powers your body functions. Imagine someone pulled it out of you. Not only do you get burned from all that heat flowing through all at once, but you freeze cause you don’t have it anymore. If that’s not you’re bag, you know what makes us go? Electrical signals shooting around our brain cells. Sure would suck if someone figured out a way to control those.
