Guys, you forget something important the old monk said once.    
HE once stated that all of the elements aren't real.    
   
The true reality behind bending is actual telekinesis.    
Just choosing your type of bending helps you concentrate on how you manipulate matter around you without overthinking what is within it.    
   
Basically, the only thing special about the Avatar is that an Avatar has multiple lives worth of wisdom inherited upon birth, and has the mental aptitude to master all four elements if he or she chooses to. Essentially benders of other types and nonbenders have had the ability granted for years, had they mentally trained themselves to handle it.    
Let's bring some SCIENCE into this;    
   
-WATER-    
Water can create lightning through vapor friction similar to what occurs in the clouds.    
   
-AIR-    
Airbending involves the gasses and vapors present in our atmosphere. Plasma is nothing more than a super-heated gas, so airbending can manipulate plasma, which also helps manipulate lightning as well as create it.    
   
-EARTH-    
Earth also can be used to align the electrons in the soil to one direction, causing static electricity. In great amounts, it also produces lightning.    
-FIRE-   
Fire involves the manipulation of plasma's direction and condensation. Producing it also involves creating friction from the air's barely flammable gasses.   
   
This can also apply to many other situations suchas bloodbending, since our bloodstream also contains gasses from the air, and other bits and pieces that other types of bending are compatible with.    
   
This monk, holds all of the answers to Avatar the Last Airbender, as well as The Legend of Korra. As he said,    
"the greatest illusion of this world, is the illusion of separation."

so what, a guy in a show gets lava powers, it doesnt say how he will die or something, its hardly a spoiler

This isn't thumbed up enough where you stumbled upon it clicking through front page. You literally went onto bending time the day after an episode aired which you didn't watch. Your fault dumbass
User avatar #3 to #1 - xehanortscrack (08/23/2014) [-]
Don't go to bendingtime after a new episode!
User avatar #4 to #3 - shenro (08/23/2014) [-]
bcuz everyone views content based on channels. i go to the main page and just open everything that seems interesting in a new tab, while others just go on 1 content and press next which prevents them from seeing whats coming.
User avatar #5 to #4 - xehanortscrack (08/23/2014) [-]
This **** has 7 thumbs. He must have clicked all the way to the newest uploads if that's the case.

Should I? No I shouldn't the last time I did it I was downvoted... but still.
DON'T GO TO FUNNYJUNK WHEN A NEW EPISODE IS RELEASED OF A SHOW YOU FOLLOW AND HAVEN'T WATCHED YET. AFTER THREE SEASONS YOU STILL DON'T GET THAT THERE WILL BE SPOILERS?!
User avatar #13 to #2 - ubermasterfaggot (08/23/2014) [-]
I'm actually happy to go to funnyjunk when a new episode is released, I get to know when it actually does.
User avatar #12 - darigaz (08/23/2014) [-]
Master it!? He can barely earthbend. And before you start hating I loved ATLA and watched the 3 seasons of Korra so far. The bending in the new series is kinda lame.
#15 to #12 - unholytiming ONLINE (08/23/2014) [-]
He DID almost outbend a master of lavabending, though he'd be ****** without his brother.
User avatar #16 to #15 - klick (08/24/2014) [-]
In fairness, most of the earth benders we've gotten a close look at were like the best. Toph, King Bumie, and everyone in the Die-Lee (I know I spelled it wrong) Bolin is good, but he doesn't have much flash.
#18 to #16 - unholytiming ONLINE (08/24/2014) [-]
I think that's kinda part of his charm. He's the new Sokka (not as good imo); Has some parts of being witty, clumsy, generally unskilled but still good and charming. Has gone toe to toe with, perhaps, the best criminal earth bender, survived that twice, and won once (thanks to his brother of course). He has, if he was a real person in a real bending world, a lot of potential and is more than what meets the eye.

One more thing, he can do what I've rarely seen many others do: Bend bended things. Like, when the lava dude (can't remember his name) lava bended towards him, he just lava bended away the lava being bended. That's pretty damn good.

Lava bending is pretty cool, but I wish they made another variation to a different element other than earth. Air benders still don't have a secondary bending ability
User avatar #33 to #27 - superflystickman (08/24/2014) [-]
They don't need a second ability. Air is the deadliest element. Traditionally, they have astral projection, but that's thought to be just because they're the most spiritual benders. Flight is just a specialized airbending technique. But in relation to how deadly they are, of course there's Zaheer and the Earth Queen, but if you'll recall, Aang found Monk Gyatso's body surrounded by almost an entire company of firebender corpses. It would make sense that Gyatso bended all of the air out of the immediate vicinity, stopping the Firebenders from producing fire and killing all of them, himself included.
User avatar #36 to #33 - blind ignorance (08/24/2014) [-]
Yea, you are right, the reason i mentioned the air benders was a speculation that they could potentially create sonic speed through air bending. But man do people love nit picking, I made the comment to just state that I was a little disappointed that earth benders seem to be coming up with new "twists" to their bending styles, I want to see something new with firebending mostly
User avatar #39 to #36 - superflystickman (08/24/2014) [-]
Well, I could see them doing something different with firebending, but it's not likely. Water has all of its many different bending forms because it's water and that ****** in everything. Earth isn't in as many things. I mean there's tons of it but i think theyve explored most of the uses for earthbending. Firebending, however, unlike the other 2, can only be used for innovative and constructive purposes when being used as a fuel, as it is normally mainly used as a weapon, and I can't really think of another form of fire bending. I mean when you break it down, Firebending seems to be more about energybending, in respect to electron transfers(Capital E Energybending in the avatar series is more about chi and chakras), as if firebending was actually just about fire, lightning would not be a fire subskill. Granted, if Firebending-as-energy-transference is explored to greater depth in the show, it's feasible that firebending could eventually be used to influence other bending styles by neutralizing the energy that the benders attempt to exert on their elements
User avatar #40 to #39 - blind ignorance (08/24/2014) [-]
Thank you for the well thought up responses, I always imagined that a firebending master could produce some form of thermal shield, or aura, around their body to negate most attacks from other benders. My opinion for the series is that firebending does create some of the most intense fight sequences, and I will enjoy seeing what the creators have planned
User avatar #42 to #27 - malinko (08/24/2014) [-]
******* flying maybe?
User avatar #35 to #27 - solidderking (08/24/2014) [-]
maybe they will be able to bend sonic
User avatar #28 to #27 - Rukioish ONLINE (08/24/2014) [-]
flight yeah?
#30 to #27 - anon (08/24/2014) [-]
Well airbenders special abilities are flying and astral projection.
#44 - ronjeremysweiner (08/28/2014) [-]
lava seems like a bad guy thing though
and bolin is almost as kindhearted as Iroh
he will probably use his new ability as often as Iroh used lighting

I mean it makes scene that he can lava bend. His dad was a fire bender and is mom was an earth bender .... or the other way around. Ether way he got half and half so it makes scene.
User avatar #41 to #31 - malinko (08/24/2014) [-]
sense*

I dont understand lava bending, how do the rocks heat up? It seems like it would require fire as well as earth to do.
#22 to #19 - mustangsvoo (08/24/2014) [-]
my best guess is lavabenders just apply pressure to rocks until it becomes lava
User avatar #23 to #22 - adplum (08/24/2014) [-]
i was thinking it might be something to do with friction but it seems too spontaneous. They fail to explain a lot of things in the series :/
User avatar #34 to #23 - superflystickman (08/24/2014) [-]
Well, metalbending was thought impossible before Toph because the earth was so sparse inside of it. One could assume that metalbending is done by creating a "network" between the earth molecules inside the metal, as otherwise any attempt at metalbending would just tear the earth out of the metal. It can be similarly assumed that the heating of the earth for lavabending could either be by applying immense pressure to the earth or rapidly swirling the molecules to create massive friction in a small timeframe
#24 to #23 - mustangsvoo (08/24/2014) [-]
maybe its cause of the parents abilities then
User avatar #25 to #19 - azraelthemage (08/24/2014) [-]
Basically, they use friction to heat up the rock.
User avatar #32 to #19 - bostpost ONLINE (08/24/2014) [-]
well, water benders can freeze water which is a physical change and fire benders can bend lightning, which isn't really combustion at all
User avatar #29 to #19 - lotengo (08/24/2014) [-]
yea because the rest of the bending is so ******* logical and real
User avatar #7 - becefalus (08/23/2014) [-]
Me thinks I should try and watch this show
where can I find it?
and do I have to watch bald boy adventures first?
#8 to #7 - anon (08/23/2014) [-]
You can get away without watching the original series, as Legend of Korra has it's own storyling for the most part.

However it will make MUCH more sense if you watch The Last Airbender first, which is itself a very good series.

You can watch all of the episodes of Legend of Korra on nick's website (www.nick.com/legend-of-korra/episodes/)

Unfortunately, I don't know of any equally official place to watch The Last Airbender, but you could probably find any number of websites via google.
User avatar #11 to #7 - thingexplain (08/23/2014) [-]
Watch The Last Airbender first. www.legendofkorra.tv/ All the episodes of both series.
#14 to #7 - pending (08/23/2014) [-]
You can find Korra and bald boys adventures on watchcartoononline.com   
   
you don't have to watch bald boys adventures. But, bald boy had some pretty good adventures. I thought bald boy was a very well done show, however it is obviously a kids show.   
   
on the bright side/downside, bald boy is only 3 seasons and wouldnt take long to get through.

Zaheer learns to fly but still loses and gets put back in prison and Korra is now in a wheelchair due to being poisoned and fighting Zaheer
