        There was a higher up writer/director of the PPG reboot that 110% put in some kid character that's kind of a Gary Stu and Blossom falls for him hard. I believe but don't know if he had some tumblr posts being a Blossom stan.

    Once you see it, you can't unsee it with Aang. It makes his entire character fall apart, especially when you realize this is why what few flaws he has are excused/deus ex machina'd or retconned.

        I think the writers tried to strike a balance with Katara only for the creators to go nuh uh. There was a whole episode with katara being salty about Aang picking up water bending so fast only for the next season to have her leapfrog him. iirc she wasn't being hyped as a master until about that time the creators needed her to be comfort Aang after getting chewed out by toph

          said about byrke going in the opposite extreme post ATLA. Yeah everything in the comics/korra are definitely flaws but not ones that are consistent with Aangs portrayal in ATLA. And even then the shit about aang being a neglectful parent got handwaved in the comics. They literally made Kya gay just to playdown concerns about Aang's parenting.

            And this is why I was content in dismissing you because I knew if I did post counter-examples you’d just dismiss me right back. Did you seriously expect Katara’s hands to be horribly burned for the rest of the series? Or for Aang to straight murder a bunch of sand people? The consequences are there they’re just interpersonal rather than physical, it’s less a consequence of self-insertdom and more so Avatar is a kids show that runs within a 22 minute format. There’s just some things they can’t show or do and for the most part I’d say they did a good job circumventing those limitations, there’s plenty of shit Zuko and Iroh get away with I can list here too.

              I expected better of you anon. Yes, the lack of tangible consequences determines whether or not flaws hold narrative weight. Your point about interpersonal vs physical would have merit if the show didn't bend over backwards to make Aang running away the solution to the climax of the series. It outright validated is passive tendencies instead of confronting them.
              Again i'm only really talking within the context of ATLA. you can call what byrke did with Aang afterwards flaws and i wont really fight you on that apart from the neglect. (they outright had bumi repeat the defense tenzin told him in korra to downplay the neglect via comic retcon)

                Aang running away and being evasive is constantly thrown into his face throughout the series in episodes like the Storm and Bitter Work. Aang’s attitude in both the Awakening and the Invasion reflected a deep seeded need for confrontation, to correct his previous failures. This is why I called you a speedwatcher because all you seem to care about are the broad strokes and not any of the finer details within. Everybody on the fricking planet hates energybending but not because it “validates Aang’s passive attitude” but because it was a cop-out to Aang’s pacifist dilemma that wasn’t setup up at all. I absolutely agree, Bryke dropped the ball and dropped the ball hard in the finale, but to suggest that these cop-outs were an issue with Aang’s writing which prevailed the entire series is patently absurd.

                It's one thing to throw it in his face and another to actually have him learn and improve vs cleaning up after the fact. Yes he did start to change with the awakening and day of black sun, but if byrke cared at all about continuity, then him running away in the finale wouldn't have happened as he has already learned from his past experiences. it's like they reverted him right back to the dilemma with Guru Patik only to give him an out instead.
                I can agree that Aang's pacifist dilemma wasn't setup well even if it's not that much of a stretch for a monk to suddenly chimpout over having to kill someone. They waited way too late bring that up

                Anonymous

                I’d argue that Aang had made that change around the same time as Bitter Work. From that point Aang’s answer to most conflicts was confronting it head-on just as Toph taught him, Book 3 Aang was in full confrontation mode for about half the season before they completely retconned Aang’s development. It happens as early as Western Air Temple where Aang fricks off to go play in the Temple so he can avoid learning Firebending and only gets compounded in the finale where Aang suddenly has reservations about preforming his duty which he never had before. It’s shit

                Oh yeah, and his girlfriend vanishes off the earth despite being an official member of team Avatar.
                Dunno, I feel like they could have done more with him if they really wanted to, specially since LOK is full of unfunny characters trying to fill his role.

                There’s certainly some, virtually every writer transmits themselves into their writing be it consciously or unconsciously. I don’t contend this, but beyond the design of adult Aang there’s nothing too egregious here. And no, Aang getting bailed out in the finale isn’t proof of anything but lazy writing

                It feels like you're really under selling this, because it's more than enough here when one hears byrke compare Aang and Katara to that boy who likes his babysitter (their words, not mine). The fact that Aang looks nothing like himself and a lot like Mike is a red flag.
