Is anyone else getting tired of only hearing about evil firebenders in Legend of Korra? They’re turning into the Slytherin house of bending.

I know there’s gangs filled with different types of benders. And hey, Tarrlok and Tahno are/were waterbenders and they tend to air on the side of dickery. But so far the only actual causalities in this show have been perpetrated by their fire wielding counterparts, and it’s getting old.

I was fine when I heard firebenders made Bolin an orphan and Mako the Batman. Desperate times, desperate people, and it makes Mako being a firebender that much more tragic.
But then suddenly Amon’s ambiguously true back story is about firebenders killing his parents. I was fine with it, though slightly annoyed, because hey, it’s probably an intentional parallel between the bending brothers and Amon.
But now Asami’s mother, too? That’s four major characters! C’mon, writing staff, I know you’re better than this.

At this point, I’m shocked Amon isn’t only targeting firebenders.

Heh.

"Shocked."
