>Frankly it'd be a much more compelling idea to have him defeat Ozai and convince the Fire Lord to repent (much like Naruto did to many of his enemies) using this defeat as a practical demonstration of his ideology of Peace being better and stronger than Ozai's ideology of Domination and Destruction.
To do that justice would probably require the whole season, which honestly might have been better than the season 3 we actually got. Instead of building up Ozai as some ultimate anime villain, he and Aang cross paths a few times or something like that and Aang works his way through the Fire Nation sabotaging the war effort and solving people's problems, undermining morale on the home front. By the time of the comet maybe they just can't hold up the war machine any longer because of the combination of sabotage and Aang subverting their loyalty to the war effort. Like the episode where he wins over the school kids, but for the whole season.

Perhaps, but honestly even if you only changed the final episodes of S3 you could still have Aang do the entire curbstomp of Ozai, then deactivate his avatar mode and talk, casually slapping aside Ozai's attempts and finally taking his abilities, not through energy bending from a special turtle, but perhaps an advanced version of Ty Lee's abilities that he uses to shut the Chakra-gates he already learned of, and in taking this non-fatal route finally prove to Ozai, that HIS idea of peace and non-violence is superior and that he proved it by beating Ozai at his violent game and then displaying mercy.

But expanding on my 'Talk no Jutsu' analogy, Talk no Jutsu works usually because of the enemy’s inherit contradiction in their beliefs and actions. That's the reason it didn't have relevance to a character like Madara or Deidara or Hidan. Ozai is supposed to be a generic fascist, and that's honestly fine, Lily Orchard's one good video talks about this.

BUT your idea could function. Aang could use perhaps some Spirit bending thing to demonstrate to Ozai the things he saw and felt, hiding in the Fire Nation and other nations, the squalor and hatred and abuse and death and misery, all wrought by has actions even for his people. To demonstrate that his idea of conquest brought nothing but destruction and would eventually destroy him too.

So guns are canon in Avatar now, but it actually seems to be logically consistent, based on historical materialism.

Weren't there cannons in the background of some episode? Firearms of one form or another go way way back in China, so it would be very weird if they didn't have them in the universe, especially since fireworks are canon.

>why don't people use guns in Avatar
Well the fire nation are the ones who are most industrialized, so they would have the greatest ability to actually make guns, but they have soldiers who can shoot fireballs with just training and the gift of bending. They have not much reason to invest in guns. And as for everyone else, you have the issues of the powder being flammable. Early guns had serious issues with powder igniting easily and injuring or killing the user. So fire benders will uno reverse your ass. Given that we have people like Zhao who are reckless with fire, they would have a much higher risk of randomly exploding than users of early firearms did IRL.

The other lesser (but still major) problem is that powder is useless when wet, so waterbenders are also a hard counter. One of the Earthbenders' staple moves is raising an earth shield, which could provide sufficient cover on demand. Not a hard counter, but still a strong defense. Airbenders don't necessarily have a good defense (I guess they could bend the air out of the gun so nothing can ignite lol).

So with the exception of Airbenders the early guns would be pretty useless. And without the early guns being effective like they were IRL they probably would not catch on the way they did IRL. Might just be relegated to a weird niche weapon not unlike the boomerang. Cannons might be useful as artillery but the show had all types of benders except air shown having artillery specialists that can launch their element like a catapult without any tools. Still would be useful for non-benders (they do have actual catapults), but would be very inferior in terms of rate of fire and probably not especially strong in terms of damage comparatively.

So instead it'll be fanfiction like Shyamalan (the comics are supposed to be canon), no thanks. Legend of Korra got bad enough and the live action doesn't exist, I don't want more retroactive fucking over of the series.

Anon relax your anus and realize that there is no ethical consumption under capitalism. People do the starbucks mommy milk meme because coomershit dominates burger society as a result of alienation and porn-addiction. Attacking people for it is fucking lame and high-handedly reductionist.

 No.29210

"There is no ethical consumption under capitalism" means that you can't consume your way to fixing things and that any consumption plays into the problem. It does not mean that you can consume anything you want without responsibility. The absence of a pure, unstained commodity doesn't mean that consuming something excessively harmful is fine.

>t does not mean that you can consume anything you want without responsibility
Not my meaning, but even assuming that, fictional characters being coomerized is hardly a crime that should be put to the firing squad.
Moreover I meant that people do this because of material dialectics under capitalism, they are not conscious of it and are going to resist understanding it as "moralfagging" or other shit like that.

physically harassed? Also again my point is you need to
