    Avatar: The Last Airbender and War

    Avatar: The Last Airbender is at its core a story about war. It features the Fire Nation on an imperialistic crusade expanding it’s power and trying to take over the world. Through Aang, our main character, we see many different people and how this war has affected them. Analyse the effect of war in the Avatar universe and whether or not Avatar: The Last Airbender is anti-imperialism/anti-war.

    • To help with this idea, someone might want to reference Yamamoto Tsnunetomo's "Hagakure" and Sun Tzu's "Art of War." Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko build so much from Eastern culture. Also, consider how good characters echo Dalai Lama names: Tenzin and Gyatso. This type of discussion should balance Western and Eastern concepts of war (and peace).– Michael J. Berntsen 5 years ago

    • I would suggest trying to draw connections between tactics that each of the Four Nations use to conflicts in history and each battles to real-life battles. – Xander95 4 years ago

    Man, I would love a Thunderbolts movie and I can’t wait for The Sandman movie either. These are all pieces of great source material, it’s a wonder that studios don’t pick this stuff up. That said, with doing any adaptation of any media in a media different from it’s original place, you run the risk of losing the intent of the source material. I think when you do adapt something, you need the creator’s approval and presence at the table when making the adaptation so that it stays faithful (but not too faithful) to the original work.

    I have to say, I agree with your top ten must see episodes. To me one of the brilliant things about cowboy bebop is that is does filler right. Every episode either expands on the universe we live in, show us more about the characters we love, or both. These episodes are the epitome of this, great list bud!

    I have a lot of feelings about Harley Quinn. It’s important for us to remember that she is a Batman villain and that all of the Batman villains are deeply flawed in some psychological (and often physical way). Harley Quinn is no exception. She embodies the issues that someone can face when in an abusive relationship, she was manipulated, used, and often forgotten and left to be sent back to Arkham Asylum.
    While this is often played for laughs this is an important part of her character and her development into a more full-fledged independent villain. Her growth and realization that her relationship with the Joker was unhealthy is empowering. She is more well rounded and gives good female representation in a medium often starved for it.
