Bumi is a ridiculous name for a villain.
He probably thought the same thing, hence his decision to call himself Amon.
Amon is also the name of a pressure point at the base of the neck.
Spoiler: The pressure point.
The same one that Amon presses when he removes a person's bending.
A precise and hard strike on that pressure point is also lethal.
Maybe Amon is actually a reincarnated Lion Turtle.
This episode certainly intended to establish Amon as a morally ambiguous character.
Contrast this with the fire nation and its atavistic 'we'll conquer all' mentality.
If the next episodes don't transform him into yet another moustache twisting villain, this series might actually try something rarely encountered in cartoons - moral ambiguity as opposed to black vs white confrontations.
Well, aside from Ozai, the main villains from the original show were pretty well rounded; Zuko, Azula, Ty Lee, Mai...
Major, major, MAJOR spoiler leaked about Amon's identity. Open at your own peril.
I'm not kidding.
Really, don't say I didn't warn you.
Spoiler: Amon's identity screengrab from an Arab localization. Seriously, don't open unless you don't care, at all.
The text reads:
"I am your father."
This may just be a dream sequence, but just in case it isn't I warned you all ahead of time.
Well, that's my cue to leave this thread. See you guys when the show ends.
I knew it! The cabbage peddler is finally back for revenge!
I doubt that you have too. Whenever we've talked about spoilers before an episode airs we've always kept it tagged.
Just for some additional context, the scene is in the Spirit World.
Aang isn't really Amon. He is guiding her through the place by appearing in his form
Spoiler: The image.
So there was more leaked than just the image? What is your source for that? Also if it was, why do the subtitles say "I am your father?" This would imply that Tenzin is able to enter the spirit world as well.
I hope this part is true. Because if not I think alot of people will be really pissed, understandably.
I'll give you the other three, but Azula was a fucking whackjob.
Azula was a sociopath, to be sure, but she was given nuance and dimension, and a backstory that helped explain why she went so wrong. And when she was finally defeated and broken in the finale, it evoked more pity for her than triumph, in spite of everything.
My son and I watched the first three episodes last night.
Very good show so far.
I like the conflict between Benders and Equalists. That seems like a realistic set-up.
Korra is now on Season Pass.
Spoiler: Tomorrow's episode. Yes it was leaked. So actual spoilers here.
I think that the whole episode for Korra dealt with her unlocking the first Chakra, Survival by admitting her fear of Amon. I think this because of the flashbacks she saw of Aang and the Gaang fighting Yukon in Republic City after Amon knocked her out. She started to connect with her spiritual side.
In fact I'd go as far to say that Amon deliberately set up the situation on Avatar Aang Memorial Island to unlock her chakra.
I think we know now what happened to Toph and why her daughter dislikes Korra.
1x04: "The Voice in the Night"
- The world they created for Korra is very nice. I especially liked the view of Republic City from Air Temple Island.
- I like Mako's new lady friend. Beautiful and sophisticated. I couldn't help but think that something is up though.
- At the end of the episode, I got to thinking that Tenzin is Amon. Even if he isn't, I suspect that Amon is someone we know or have already seen. I haven't read the spoilers a few posts up.
