Given his appearance, I'd be willing to say Roku was between ages fifty and seventy-five, personally.

Actually it should since nowadays no one really dies of old age anymore, they die from some form of cancer.

Well, yeah, but there are some injuries that you just can't come back from. That and plot apparently dictates that Aang's guaranteed to be gone.

I can't wait to see what happened to Zuko and his mom, and if he is still alive, how good of a fire lord he is

They can explore that through flashbacks and it's consequences. I am quite excited, I hope it will be as good as the original.

Hopefully we get some love for the old characters like flash backs.


We should see some action from Aang, though, as he educates Korra on the ways of the force.


If I understand the mythology right, Aang must be dead for Korra to be born. But I suppose he will guide her somewhat like the previous Avatars did with Aang, so you are probably somewhat right, though I am not sure if we will see any action from him.

The first season is a mini one with 12 episodes, with all the flashbacks how how much 'Korra' story will there be? The plot must be vastly different as Korra knows all but airbending by the beginning.

A lot of the story could actually focus on reestablishing airbending.

They never really explain why its only possible for the Avatar to learn more than one style of bending. Its not like the people of the four nations always had bending, they had to learn from something (Fire-Dragons, Water-Moon spirit, Earth-Badgermoles, Air-Skybison).

Yet the series also suggests that bending is a heritable trait seeing as the benders in the swamp were said to be distant cousins of the Southern Water Tribe.

So if its only possible to learn bending if you're (1) the Avatar or (2) descended from a Bender of a particular variety then perhaps the answer is for Aang's kid (I recall them mentioning him in the synopsis) to father a lot of Airbending-capable children.

now, if Aang had a kid with someone...lets say Katara, a water bender, could this kid be both a water bender and an air bender? or would it only be the dominent kind of thing, or just one or the other?

The creators are really unclear about that. If it were possible to create Hybrid benders then I imagine the Fire Nation would have instituted a policy of forcefully marrying Earth Kingdom women to Fire Nation officers in order to create an army of Earth/Fire (Magma) benders.

I'm pretty sure each child has only a set chance of being a bender in one element. Which means that Aang and Katara's children would come out as either air benders or water benders.

I also think, since the show was more or less about restoring the balance, that nature would would allow more airbenders to manifest, likely from Aang and Katara's children.

I don't think it's been implied anywhere that Avatars live longer than anyone else, except possibly because they have all the elements and won't go down without a fight.

If Aang made it to 80, that's awesome. It's not more than reasonable that he's at the december of his life, then, though, or dead since years ago.

Given that in nearly 500 years there have only been 6 Earth Kings it would seem even non-Avatars can reach pretty extreme ages.

Kyoshi lived to be 230 though, which is the oldest recorded age of anyone in Avatar.

All things considered Aang dying at 80 isn't exactly what I would call a "long life" considering life expectancy is so damn high.

MAGMA BENDING! that would be epic. but i don't think it is possible. maybe in a teamwork kind of thing. but the fire bender would have to be able to create some HOT fire

Magma Bending, aka Lava Bending, is possible, though I don't know if anyone but the Avatar can pull off such a feat.

Actually, it might be possible. I recall in the drill episode, Katara and Toph worked together to bend the waste, a mix of earth and water, back into the machine.

oh yeah, i didn't even think of the avatar.

and yeah, i think if a moderately skilled earth bender, and an INSANE fire bender teamed up, they could do lava bending. well wait, no, the earth bender would have to be really good too, i mean he would be controlling a liquid instead of a bunch of boulders. Now i hope they do this, it would be so awesome lol

I believe the creators stated that due to Aang spending a century in the Iceberg, his time after awakening was shortened.
My guess is that he died due to natural causes, unlike Roku, who was killed by the Volcano.

Assuming Aang died 17-19 years before the start of this series (Korra looks to be in her late teens, and apparently, the Avatar is not informed of their status until their 16th birthday), chronologically, he was roughly 170 years old.

Magma is just molten rock, and has nothing to do with Fire, apart from the fact that they are hot. Fire-benders usually do not bend heat, nor do they bend super-heated liquids/solids, so I don't know if a Firebender could do it.
I think you'd need a Water-Bender & an Earth-bender. Perhaps maybe a Fire-Bender as well, if it turns out that Fire-bending is required.

I don't know how reliable it is, but in the series recap that had commentary, they specifically stated that lava bending fire- and earthbending.

I think all lava bending requires is an earth bender. that is, if the rock is already molten. but if it isn't it should require a fire bender to melt it.

But since earth bending is different than bending liquids, and i dont think heat has much, if anything, to do with it. So the earth bender would have to learn from someone like a water bender to get better at bending liquid rock.

Then the fire bender should just have enough raw power to create a flame hot enough to melt rock. and i suppose enough control to not burn everyone around

Didn't Azulon bend lava when he was helping Ryoshi fight the volcano. I distinctly remember someone bending lava at that point.
