I am a huge Avatar fan, but after 2 seasons of Legend of Korra, I'm of the opinion she's like Bane on the Battle forums, can barely win $%&%!

She loses and messes up in such grand fashion I don't ever believe Aang was this incompetent.

To put it in perspective:

She lost all past lives in the fight against the bad guy.
She never really "beats" the blood bending Amon or Tarlocc from season 1.


Despite all her gifts Bane beats her in h2h and that is just sad.

You're not wrong. She is a failure and the true definition of incompetence. She is extremely disrespectful towards her elders and hardheaded.

Which is sadly why I dropped it

I know there was a thread just like this not long ago.

I like watching Avatar in general but whenever I watch Avatar season 2, I can't help but miss Aang, if you compare the ages and the circumstances that both Aang and Korra are/were in, Aang was so much more controlled and respectfull, hardly ever using (but I could be wrong/missed something somewhere) the "I'm the Avatar" as an excuse for all his actions like Korra does.

And as an Avatar in general, I find Aang to be better than Korra, simply because he mastered all four elements at the age he did with the amount of pressure he had, as well as being the first avatar to perfom Energy bending. I find it quite difficult to like Korra, especially after Book 2.

Korra is a disappointing addition.

Which leaves plenty of room for growth.

LOL how do you "drop" a tv show? Cancel the dvr?

i like korra , not more than aang but she she does alright show-wise

@knightrise: Meh, when she fixes her personality I'll reconsider lol. Also I watched it online, that's basically what I meant. I just stopped the show. Luckily my brother still watches it and I was able to see the episode of the first Avatar, and I must say, he is cool.

I gave Korra about six episodes before I said forget it. Also, I thought both Katara and Toph said, on Ember Island his waterbending and earthbending could use practice? Regardless, the proficiency in which he learned the other three, on top of all that other junk he was into, in, what; half a year? Nothing short of amazing.

I don't know if we can really say she's been the worst, as we haven't seen all the other avatars yet. But yeah, she's awful.

While I love Aang, I'm nuetral toward Korra. But I do think so far that she has a better supporting cast than Aang at the same point (Katara was sooo annoying).

#13 Posted by NorrinBoltagonPrime21 (5402 posts) - - Show Bio

As a character she has improved alot since the beginning of book 2, no where near the level of annoying she once was at. People need to watch book 2 entirely before the can fully decide what they think about her character.

As for her deeds as the avatar, she fails a lot and is always outsmarted by her foe. Her mistakes have cost her and the consequences seem to get worse every time. I can't say she's the worst but definitely near the bottom.

Btw, losing to Amon and Tarlock by bloodbending should not be held against her because nobody could beat them except Aang and that was by entering the avatar state, something Korra couldn't do until after the fight.

The worst so far....maybe (I like her)...the worst ever who knows there might be a future avatar or some one after Wan's time that could have been far worse.

#16 Posted by The Stegman (22798 posts) - - Show Bio

I will admit..she messes up...a lot. And she can be annoying...and hard headed, and disrespectful to her elders...and childish....and a bad girlfriend. But she has...erm....nice hair....but not as nice as Asami's.

I was on the fence during Book One, but I thoroughly hated Korra through most of Book Two, for reasons mentioned. Even at her best, she just didn't have the same "heart" that Aang brought. Granted, that did mean there was more room for character development, but there's only so long you'd want to watch a douchbag acting like... well, a douchbag. Korra was a douche up until the last five or so episodes of Book Two.

#18 Edited by Zijuun (854 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say Korra is a fine character even if she may be incompetent, annoying and disrespectful.

I'd rather reword it as: the worst Avatar series up to date.

@unbreakable_fs4: I dropped it too, I don't plan on watching anymore episodes. It feels as if the show is being stretched on way too long as it needs to be and the story isn't getting any better. I'm four episodes away from the season finale though.

she is pretty bad all things considered. every avatar made mistakes

Examples:

  • Avatar Wan freeing Vattu, unleashing chaos into the world
  • Avatar Roku failing to stop sozin from starting the 100 year war, leading to the massacre of the air nomades
  • Avatar Aang disappearing for 100 years when the world needed him, leading to a war that lasted over 100 years. Also, he almost died, nearly ending the avatar cycle forever

Now while they all made big mistakes, they all learned from them. After freeing vattu, wan dedicated his life to making peace and was successful in stopping vattu and imprisoning him. He made up for his error and grew as a character.

It made sense why roku didnt kill sozin. They were friends since they were kids and roku thought that there was some good in him. And in fact, the only reason he was unable to stop sozin was because he was betrayed and killed when sozin let him die. As a spirit, roku freely admits his mistake and acknowledges that he should have done more, showing that he learned from his mistake

Aang was impulsive as a kid, leading to him running away. Again, he knows what he did was wrong and does everything in his power to set the world straight.

Korra on the other hand, makes mistakes and doesnt learn from them. She continuously gets tricked by obviously evil characters and refuses to see reason on anything. she will make mistakes and continue to make them while the others make mistakes once and never agian

I don't mind Korra's character as much, because perfect or even constantly right characters get boring. I liked her in book one of LOK more than I liked Aang in book one of TLA, probably because TLA didn't really pick up for me until Azula came on the scene.

But all things considered, she was really annoying at the start of the season, but I still grew to like her towards the second half of it. Also considering that almost no one was prepared to face Vattu and she didn't receive help in the bucket loads like Aang.

#21 Posted by RaggedScarecrow (781 posts) - - Show Bio

No because that's your opinion and it's just as valid as someone saying they like her. I do feel that Korra gets a bad rep because she has a very "in you're face" attitude which a lot of people dislike. In terms of personality, Aang was a lot more likeable because he was shy and uncertain, which people find it easier to relate to. Korra, on the other hand, is very confident and self-assured which is not something people like to deal with.

well there's still 2 more seasons to go but at this moment in time,yes she is the worst avatar

#23 Edited by Gaza_Stripper (104 posts) - - Show Bio

Korra is not the worst Avatar, she just looks bad next too Aang. Roku let the fire nation take over the world pretty crappy move for an Avatar. The water Avatar before Korra lost his girlfriends face pretty crappy move for an Avatar....

#24 Posted by Aiden Cross (15561 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think Korra is believable. Aang was very spiritual but struggled with it for several seasons, while Korra had zero spirituality but reached a higher level in a matter of days.. I'm just not buying it. And i view this whole season just as an alternate reality type thing to cope with the awful storytelling.

Been debating whether or not to start watching Korra. I watched the first couple of episodes, up to the point where Amon attacks the stadium. Kind of drifted off. I dropped by to ask if I should get caught up. Heard good things about the very first Avatar, which gets explored with Korra. Maybe
