The creators have stressed in many interviews and press releases that a large part of what makes Avatar so great is the amount of empowered women portrayed in it. It is not hard to agree with that statement. There are so many amazing female characters in A:TLA, it's mind boggling. Not only that, but the diversity in personalities, in abilities and in overall aesthetics is simply insane.
So, who to you is the best female character? Who was the most commanding? The most intriguing? Who was that one female who made your jaw drop and made you squeal like a well-bred pig before it's taken to the slaughterhouse?
It's particularly hard to choose, and I still haven't made my mind up. I'm debating between Katara and Mai.
Discuss below who you think is the ultimate female character and support your reasoning. Let's see if we can agree (doubtful) on who is the best female character in Avatar.
