Firebending Amon by neomeruru Firebending Amon by neomeruru
MY PREDICTION

Amon is a firebender and he is overcompensating for the shame of killing his family in a bending accident that left him grievously scarred.

You heard it here first!

I'm dead serious about this prediction. By the end of the Book of Air, we'll see Amon bending fire. If it doesn't happen, I'll find a hat and eat it.

Find me on tumblr!

Don't be a dick about spoilers in the comments, dudes. I watched the finale, you don't need to tell me. Don't ruin it for other people!

Your story is wrong. Amon (Naratik) is a Water bender.

No, don't. That is a better prediction than Amon being Aang's kiddo. |:

then how did amon stop the blood bending (it could be he is a water bender). But then again he is a God dam EQUALIST. so... no bending 4 Amon,or he would be the biggest hypocritical fuk.

I'm curious to know how you came to that conclusion lol But it'd be interesting that he's "the answer" to benders but can bend himself if that's the case.

He moves like an airbender but has eyes like a firebender... There are three cases of a firebender killing characters' family members on this show. I have the feeling it isn't a coincidence. I'm also not sure I buy Amon'sstory, since he was trying to win people over to his cause...

I think that theory's amazing especially since in the original series firebending was seen as the more volatile of the four elements. Air, earth and water are all relatively stagnant elements but fire has "life"of its own. Unless stopped it will consume and grow until there's nothing left to burn.

But in Legend of Korra firebending seems to be done with very little concern about collateral damage. Mako and to a greater degree, Korra seem to bend with reckless abandon. With so many firebending gangsters in the city I'm surprised entire blocks haven't been burned down. I'd be nice for the creators to show us again the devastating effects of reckless firebending.

Cool idea, but I think Amon posses the "energybending" ability that Aang displayed, the one that allows you to take someone else's bending, which would explain why he can do that, and would also explain his resistance to bloodbending from the most recent episode.

Yeah, maybe he was energybent and absorbed the ability somehow.

hmm... I wonder why everyone in Avatar always is killed by a firebender, and that the ''evil'' or whether they're ''called'' is a firebender. I mean Fire bring so much more than harm :/ i think it's kind of sad that they're always showing it as the terrifying element. It slightly bothers me.

But anyways, Great picture though. I like the colouring and the pose :)

Shot in the dark, only going off the bending taking away part but I think Amon is going to be one of Aang's children. If I remember right in the first episode there was a short conversation when Tenzin came to the South Pole to meet Korra and Tenzin's wife asked Katara if her other children had also acted like Tenzin growing up, so far none of those other children have been mentioned outside of that. (Good brother vs brother drama right there).

Like others have said, Amon does move with the grace of an Airbender and him being the son of the original person to take bending away would explain maybe how he learned/inherited the ability?

If not that then maybe Zuko's son perhaps??

Anyway should be a good episode regardless.......oh back to being about Art, very nice piece :P

For the record, energybending was around centuries before element bending, and except for the lion turtles, it was largely forgotten. Aang simply rediscovered the lost art, using it to his advantage as the Avatar.

Who Amon is, why he can dodge stuff at unnatural speed and where he learned this "anti-bending" trick-of-his-trade is anyone's guess...
