Firebenders 02 by rufftoon Firebenders 02 by rufftoon
As some of you may know, in the live action adaptation of The Last Airbender, the firebenders now need a source of fire to do their firebending.
They do not create their own fire.

Do note that some masters are capable of creating their own fire, but I don't know their ratios compared to regular soldiers.

Which may lead to some...well...problems.

(quick comic all done on a Cintiq, using Photoshop)

Last airbender belongs to Nickelodeon, Paramount, Viacom.

Where's the lighter when they need it? Are the movie makers afraid Fox will sue them for stealing Pyro's schtick? I wonder how that Fire Nation went that far.

That wasn't the weird part of the movie to me.  The weird part of the movie to me was that Shyamalan, seemed to change the Fire Nation into being Indian themed instead of Japanese themed like in the show.

Dude, I hated the movie with the firebenders. The cartoon was ten times better.
Love the comic though! XD

In short, the the live action adaptation of The Last Airbender was a load of crap that was mostly, if not completely, exposition. The bending also sucked and was uninspired.

It was seven.... It took seven benders and a lot of dancing to pick up a rock..

Actually, according to the movie, it would take 3 earthbenders and about 10 seconds of dancing to pull that move off.

To be honest it is a logical switch, since all the other benders require a source for their power. It's just their isn't much fire to go around.

Have you not seen the movie?
In the film, firebenders are incapable of bending without a source of fire already present.

This comic is incorrect - in the film it would have taken at least forty pointless kicks and dance moves to earthbend a rock that size.

Kidding, kidding =P Brilliant comic. Can't wait to see more artwork.

LOL this is great! This is exactly what would've happened in the movie if the characters had any common sense.
The 'Firebenders 03' one really voices the common complaint

This aspect of the movie REALLY drove me nuts. First off, the Earthbenders are being held captive AROUND EARTH. This is made even stupider by the fact that Firebenders now need a flame or some kind of spark to control their fire so they keep torches around, where in the show it was established that they could just generate it at will.

If the Earthbenders just invaded the Fire Nation and brought bags of sand with them, the whole conflict could have been resolved. THE FIRE NATION WAS ALMOST DEFEATED BY SAND!

For some unknown reason, none of the other nations (be it earth or water), never seemed to think to just extinguish any nearby flames when firebenders were close.
I mean...it would be just like taking away easy ammunition from their enemies, but no. Didn't happen.

Another bit of stupidness? Before the siege on the Northern Water Tribe, Pakku tells everyone to put out the torches so the Firebenders won't have any fire to use.

...BUT LOOK IN THE BACKGROUND OF THE LAST FIGHT. TONS of torches are still lit! What, did everyone just say "Eh, nuts to that". Even the Waterbenders suck at their jobs!
