Probably his son. Now we just need to see Sokka's kid to complete the set.

Yeah, he looks older than I previously thought.




Also check this out.




It looks like Aang's son Bumi joined the United Forces military.

That was a great episode. We got some good character moments, and pretty much everyone (even Naga) got a chance to kick ass.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air

Looks like Bumi married into the Fire Nation.

Maybe Sokka's kid is like a United Republic Royal Marine.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air

Great episode (1x10). Those equalists always disturb me everytime I see them. And Lin losing her bending makes me think that there's a way to restore it. Unless the show intends to drop the character or make a permanent change, I think she'll be back to her usual self.

He does look older in that pic. He has a young sounding voice, so I thought he was in his teens or slightly older.

^Well he's a General, so I doubt he's a teenager.

I did wonder when Zukko's family would make an appearance. I'd assumed (rather unimaginatively) that it'd be in the form of the current Fire Lord.

And yeah, all we need now is a decent of Sokka & Suki to turn up. Who wants to lay odds that the Kyoshi warriors are part of the United Forces military?

It's not the real world, so you let stuff like that go.

And thanks for reminding me of Suki. Finding out what happened to her would be nice.

^I said I doubt he's a teenager. I didn't say it was impossible. Regardless he doesn't even look like he could be that young at all. I'd say by his face is drawn he's more like early to mid-30's, maybe as much as 40.

Given his name, I'd say for obvious reasons it's a fair bet he's Zukko & Mai's son rather than grandson (unless he'd Iroh III), in which case he'd obviously have to be closer to Tenzin's age. Actually, him being the younger child of Zukko would explain why he's a General and not the Fire Lord...that is assuming Zukko isn't still alive and ruling the Fire Nation.

Except that Dante Basco is 36 years old.

I think we're too quick to equate "high-pitched" with "young-sounding." Lots of men continue to have high-pitched voices throughout their lives -- John Fiedler, Michael J. Fox, etc. But other males, including me, develop deep baritone or bass voices while still in high school. The voice you have once you're through puberty is pretty much the voice you'll have for decades thereafter, though it will get rougher and sometimes deeper starting in your 40s or 50s.

Though of course animation casting directors rely on that perception and often cast older people with "young-sounding" voices to play teenagers -- like Basco, David Kaufman, Thom Adcox, Jesse McCartney, and the like. Heck, the actors who play Mako and Bolin are both 38.

The Republic City interactive guide on Nick.com confirmed that Zuko is still alive but he abdicated his throne and put his daughter in place as Fire Lord. IIRC Zuko spends his time travelling the world.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air

Fantastic episode. Though last week's episode seemed to move too quickly (like it condensed two or three episodes into one), with this episode I think that Legend of Korra is really starting to hit its stride.

But I have to admit, when Lin landed on the Equalist airship and started to rip it apart, I really wanted to hear her say: "I am the greatest metalbender in the world and don't you ever forget it!"

Cripes, I almost had tears in my eyes thinking how proud Toph would have been.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air

Have we ever seen a metal-bender do any earth-bending? Are they so specialized that they can't even do the normal stuff?

Technically metalbending is earthbending. They're not bending the metal itself, but the impurities within it. And Lin has earthbended (earthbent? ) several times, including in this very episode.

We saw it in this very episode. When Lin was battling the Equalists on Air Temple Island, she used some earthbending to lift up pieces of the ground.
