First, any Avatar can go into the Avatar state. Only a fully realized Avatar can control it. Otherwise, it's a defense mechanism. Aang He regularly got pushed into the defensive Avatar State. During the escape from Ba Sing Se, Aang realizes what Guru Pathik was teaching him, let's go of his earthly attachments (Katara, much like Zaheer did when P'Li died), ...

Depends on how you measure being a prodigy There are four Avatars that viewers have seen learn the four elements: Wan, Roku, Aang, and Korra. Unfortunately, this gives us a small sample size. Wan was the first Avatar and didn't become so until later in life. Given that he's the only one who wasn't the Avatar from birth, I don't think it's really fair to ...

He destroyed the temple because the sages had become corrupt, so he wanted to get rid of them and the firebenders. It was to protect Aang, and there was no more use in the temple after he had already talked to him.

When Korra enters the Avatar State, she isn't taking the knowledge of past Avatars into consideration; rather, she is merely merging with the spirit of Light, Raava, just as the first avatar did. As for Aang entering the state despite not completing his chakra training, Aang's chakra training wasn't the usual Avatar State route. Most achieved the state by ...

Sokka maintained his "new guy" cover pretty well even before that incident. Bully guard: The warden will deal with you soon. [Sokka closes the doors.] Can you believe this guy? Sokka[Playing along.]: Prisoners! Am I right? Bully guard: Ugh. Tell me about it. Sokka is a pretty charismatic guy, you can see him establishing rapport with the other ...

Sokka would have been caught outright because he was tying his hair using a blue band which is a colour of the water nation people and all other guards present tied their hair with a red band. Either an animation goof, or your overestimating the quality of the prison guards. I mean, a bunch of teenagers break out of the highest security prison in the Fire ...

You're reading more into into than there is. The avatar state is something that connects the current and past avatars. It's a sort of mind meld. This is established further in The Legend Of Korra (the next avatar after Aang). Avoiding spoilers, it is explicitly proven that the avatar state is a connection to past avatars. The statues' eyes light up to ...

As per the cross post from scifi exchange , The reason here flame being blue is attributed to the fact that the blue part of the flame widely believed to be the most hottest part of it, and that blue color was also to highlight the fact that Azula was a most skilled fire bender and in terms of raw power her power is second compared to that of Fire lord Ozai. ...

Flater is correct in his assessment that the statues are representations of the previous avatars and that them lighting up is more thematic rather than functional. However, I would like to address the specifics of the question: each of these statues are representations of the previous incarnations of the Avatar. The ones shown outside of the Southern Air ...
