I usually don't do blogs, but I've had enough, I just need to rant.
Please explain to me how they 'ruined' Amon's character. No one can just be evil, so the back story to me explained how his hatered for bending started. He was abused and forced to bloodbend! You saw Katara, she HATED it! So why should Amon or Tarrlock love it? Then, he defended his little brother, when Tarrlock refused to bloodbend him. And when he asked his brother to leave with him, he refused! I would feel awful that my sibling doesn't want to follow me (not that i would leave in the first place).
To me, I feel like they did a good job with Amon and his backstory. I wish they had said what happened afterwards though.... But did you guys really believe Amon would be some mystery man forever? He had to have some kind of past (and a face)! I feel as if people were so used to some calm and collected Amon, when he took off his mask, people weren't ready to accept he was a real person and not some spirit or second avatar. If I was like him, I would've been even more wicked, forget being calm, I would've done worse.
So hate me if you want.... I still love Amon, even more since he's actually a person not some imaginary fantasy thing.
