So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
So this is what air benders can do. Sucking the air out of people’s lungs. Just as cool as lightening bending if you ask me
No I don’t think you guys understand this is frightening
Airbenders are pretty much the most powerful benders. A firebender has to create fire. A waterbender is most powerful on the open seas as much as an earthbender is on land. But air is literally everywhere.
The Air Nomads weren’t dangerous because they chose not to be.
Friendly Reminder that Airbenders can suck the air out of your lungs, and more advanced techniques are controlling sound and air pressure. This means they could burst your eardrums, and crush your lungs.
And they also have the potential to create a sharknado.
But does people not get it though? When the airbenders became extinct it wasn’t because they were weak. They could’ve overthrown the firenation with just this single move. If they wanted to, and decided to go against their beliefs, I’m sure they would’ve toppled over the firenation so easily. But they held onto their beliefs. It meant more to them than anything.
Yo I remember reading years ago about the capabilities of an airbender, one of which was bending the air out of people’s lungs. I always figured that would be too dark, even for Nick…but since they introduced bloodbending…I’m not surprised this wasn’t far behind.
Friendly reminder that Monk Gyatso’s corpse was surrounded by the bones of several dozen firebenders. Gyatso went down fighting, and god only knows what he did.
Gyatso must have made the room a vacuum, killing the firebrnders and himself in the process
