untill season 3 showed katara sporting ursa's do, thus making zutara an oedipal complez thing too.. if zuko falls for her now..
but. upon further thinking it hit me XDDD
i had a theory which works the oedipal thing in our favor XDDD
What makes it somewhat ok for Zutara to happen in light of this new claim of Oedophilia is that, Katara never treated Zuko like a son. If Zuko does fall for katara now it won't be because she happens to look like Ursa. It's because I predict there will be more interaction between these two, and they will get closer. plus Katara's a strong and beautiful bender. If she happens to look better just cos she has a hairstyle similar to Ursa, you can't hold that against Zuko then XD. He has already shown a bit of an interest in her in CoD, in the cave you know...?
Why the Oedipus complex works against Kataang is because ... Katara sadly DOES treat Aang like a son. Therefore it does seem odd for Aang to fall for someone who treats him like her son XD. Katara never treated Zuko in that manner.
dedicated to Mon i promised you i'd make it better didnt i?
EDIT : i drew this 2 weeks before the trailer how was i to know he would be kissing mai? ... i still think Maiko is most likely a Red Herring though. :spotlightright:
this comic speaks the truth!
True, Katara hair is the same as Ursa's but that hairstyle is just traditional in the Fire Nation? Lot of women must use it.
A) She was the first girl he saw after 100 years.
B) He never really had a mother, so he latched ontot he first mother-figure he had. Which is Katara.
Even rewatching the series, and knowing kataang happens... I still don't see any romantic development on Katara's part! It's just NOT THERE! And on top of that, I don't see any character development on Aang's part. He's still the same. He keeps running away from his problems. Sokka, Toph, Zuko, Katara, hell even Mai! Showed character development. And my biggest pet peeve with kataang is how Aang treats Katara's lose of her mother. It's like he doesn't even care! No "I'm sorry" or "Oh, you poor dear" it's like he doesn't acknowledge it! Where Zuko does!
Aaah, I'm ranting again. Sorry.
Aang doesn't show much character development at all, in my opinion. He's still the same goofy kid and is pron to taking extremes when something doesn't go his way. I honestly don't see how Katara realized Aang was the one. Plus, the "powerful bender" comment is so vague, but the end, Zuko was a powerful bender. He was strong enough to be considered a master and in the beginning of the series nobody would have said that about him. Yes, Azula was going insane near the end, but he was strong enough at least to keep up with her, when before he never was. To say that the Avatar is the only one able to be considered a "powerful bender" is folly.
So the argument the artist is talking about is that although Katara has a similar hairstyle to Ursa, the Oedipal complex wouldn't really apply to Zutara as its likely that the hair was just a coincidence and she never treated Zuko in any other way than an enemy and later a friend, where as with Aang she mothered him and treated him like a son which progressed to romantic feelings on Aang's part...Creating a sort of Oedipal effect in that he has romantic feelings toward a mother figure...
It can be pretty complicated if you're notfamiliar with it, but I hope that helped in some way XD
I CANT SEE MY BABY AANG GET BROKEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
but i ove the humor in it!
