Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:55 PM)

Intent is not the same as result. And comics end up ignoring things quite often.

@  Telly : (24 August 2016 - 12:54 PM)

maybe they figured a lot of people that read gi joe also read transformers. so they throw a crossover/build up in their to get some excitement for the new comic coming

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:51 PM)

If G2 universe was to be unrelated to G I Joe, why did they do a prelude to it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:33 PM)

Classics and RG1 not including Joe issues 138-145 in their backstory does not preclude them from including TF 1-80, or even the Joe and TF miniseries.

I'm almost expecting Korra to come to agree with the equalists and use the Avatar State to take away all bending around the world. Perhaps getting rid of bending would establish balance in the world, in a way.

That's actually what I'm thinking.

Remember how her teachers noted that, while she has mastered the physical aspects of bending, she has barely touched the spiritual aspects (which is why she's having such trouble with Airbending in the first place). Amon might be able to take away someone's elemental powers, but he can't do anything to the spiritual elements (discipline, self-control, wisdom); there's nothing physical about them.

It would make a nice narrative book-end for Korra to realize that she doesn't need control over the elements. Being the Avatar has nothing to do with "power," it's about balance.

Personally, I rather hope they don't go that root at the very least since I want to see the universe continue for some time.

But I do expect her to strike a balance between benders and mundanes, seems to be her big arc for the series. You also have to remember though that Roku pointed out how the world was so out of balance due to the loss of the Airbenders, losing even more benders might cause even more problems.

I'd almost hope perhaps Korra will learn an inverse of the spirit bending technique, one that would allow her to grant bending to others.

Guys, the last time the Avatar went missing there was a giant war. I don't think there's any chance of this happening. This series is gonna throw us for a few big loops, plot wise. I can almost guarantee that.

This episode wasn't as fun to me as the others. The first series was so good, its really hard to make comparisons, and really hard not to have super high expectations. I'm definitely still enjoying the show though.

The bit of flashback makes me wonder if Amon has some history with the old group.
What signature?

This got me thinking. If all bending was gone their world would crumble. They rely on Firebending lighting for electricity, earth benders for construction etc

I can understand not liking the different tone this episode had, but I certainly wouldn't call it boring.

We've got New relationship drama, We've learned a lot about Korra's mindstate and how she's seen herself up to this point.

I think she just moved past the "I'm the Avatar -deal with it." little girl from the pilot ... I completely didn't expect the first blood breakdown at the end.

If Amon and Tarlokk were the same guy, they'd have the same voice actor, I think.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

well that's an outside the fiction idea, ... in fiction he could just be trying to hide his identity - perhaps a second VA was needed to do this because whomever was cast first couldn't mask his voice enough to be different enough.

or you know Maybe the writters don't want the plot ruined because the guy with the mask is voiced by the same guy who does the voice for a suspect O_o

but that's just silly

I liked it, it was something different. Amon is a very smart villain, and it seems that the only way to deal with him, is from a political and public opinion standpoint. I also liked how Korra goes from confident to full of fear and doubt realistically, she is now conscious of how deep the slag she's into is. Tenzin continues to be an awesome adult, being there for Korra and all. And Mako's " I'm in love" face was just hilarious.

I'm now wondering if Amon may be related to the guy named dropped by Tarlokk. We may have seen him in the flashback Korra had when knocked out.

Speaking of which, it was nice seeing older versions of Toph, Sokka and Ang. Interestingly enough, all three may be dead at this point too. No Zuko there either, with going by the outside info we learned last week, makes me think we will see him in the show during an episode later on.
