This is not meant as a criticism of Aang, or Iroh, or Tenzin, or whoever. I just thought it was funny.

I'll have a comic up for the other episodes once I can figure out jokes for them. But look forward to seeing more about the finale soon.

Please comment and enjoy. :P

It kind of sucks that he went and grabbed his siblings and just left all the other people stood there.  But I guess he didn't have time.  I can't really blame him.

No I think this pretty much fits Aang perfectly

I don't see it as Aang showing up to offer assistance to only one child, but as a manifestation of Tenzin's inner demons.  That Tenzin's were apparently far friendlier indicates how he is more progressed spiritually than the others.  It's a shame, what Bumi and and Kya saw sounded fascinating, and tragic.  I wish we could have explored those two more.  Apparently, Bumi saw some messed up shit in his time with the military.  It's touching how he can still be so happy-go-lucky.

Actually, it's implied that that was a hallucination of Aang and not the real Aang Tenzin saw in the fog.

Sure, but when you recall how he never took Bumi or Kaya on vacation with him, its pretty accurate

Yeah. This strip is pretty accurate (in a comical way) but I'm just saying that it wasn't Aang that came to Tenzin in the fog. It was all Tenzin's imagination.

I thought Aang was just Tenzin's hallucination, like how Bumi saw a bunch of cannibals

I think that wasn't the real Aang, just an imagination of Tenzin. The real Aang is Korra after all.

Despite me knowing this was a joke, I have the urge to explain... I have a feeling that it was Tenzin conjuring up his own hallucination...

Aang only likes tenzin. Even if he had other airbender children. He only cares about tenzin. He actually hates kya and bumi

Iroh asked if he also did it for bumi kya or jinora and aang doesn't care about them at all. Despite jinora being the future. Aang loves tenzin #jk

Funny comic!

On a serious note, Aang probably didn't actually play favorites. All the time he spent with Tenzin was more likely him studying and learning Air Nomad culture. The "vacations" were probably just pit stops on the way to Air Temples as both places he mention are near them.

In other words, Aang spent more time with Tenzin because Aang had more he could and needed to teach him. With Bumi and Kya, it's like teaching Katara Air Nomad culture. Interesting but not something they really need to know.

Plus if Aang played favorites like that, I doubt Katara would let that fly.

They have discussed on Tv tropes another reason why Aang acted like he did. tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php… He had no parents. He was raised in a monastry , and probaly never expected himself to become a father. "And, from what we've seen of it, parenthood wasn't something the Air Nomads were very familiar with themselves. The closest thing he had to a parent was Gyatso, and Gyatso wasn't seen to juggle attention with anyone else. So Aang was never taught parenting, never experienced it, and the nearest thing he had to a parent didn't show him how to be one to multiple people."

Iroh really shouldn't talk, what with Zuko and Azula.

He played favorites himself, just as much as Ozai and Spirit Aang.

To be fair, by the time Iroh retired and had time to actually spend with his nephew and niece, Azula was a full-blown psychopath.  Iroh was scared of her.  He all but admitted it.  Scared not so much that she could hurt him or Zuko, but more of the fact that she could do it with a smile.

I realized that the other people in the "fog" couldn't see that it was clear because it only became clear once you overcame your darkness.

For that matter, there were a lot of other guys wandering in that fog...the Aang I remember would have tried to save them.

A lot of people have been saying that it wasn't actually Aang, and rather a figment of Tenzin's imagination. That might make more sense, but this comic isn't funny if you interpret it that way so...yeah. :P

He's gotta be a figment. Unalaq & Vaatu cut off access to all of Korra's past lives, Aang included...

Personally I think that It was Tenzin's reflection of his dad in the show, but I love what you did in the comic here.

 

All my friends and I are big fans of you're Korra-related comics. Keep up the great work!

I was thinking the same thing, seems like Bumi and Kya had the least development this season and top of that were kinda rejected as kids

It's ironic Aang took a page right out of Ozai's [& Ursa's] book on parenting. What's next: Toph drove away her husband & mentally scared Lin on the thought of becoming a mother?

*Rest assured, fans are gonna ask why M&B did this to such a "beloved" character.
