Myth in The Legend of Korra

Discuss the use of myth in The Legend of Korra. What historical religions, legends, myths did the creators draw inspiration from? How does this shape their animation and style? The mythology of The Legend of Korra (and its predecessor, The Last Airbender) has always fascinated me and I’d love to see it analyzed in depth.

Agree 100%. The Joker gets top marks from me because he’s the only comic book villain I have nightmares about. In the past few decades, with the exception of a few less than stellar depictions (*cough* Suicide Squad), Joker has become the most evil, most twisted, most demented character in DC. And we love him for it. Also gotta love a comic book character that breaks the fourth wall.
