Top Ten Animated Heroines of my heart
8. Korra | Avatar, master of all four elements
(The Legend of Korra, Nickelodeon, 2012)
Why I love her: I’d be lying if I didn’t mention she reminds me of Sokka in a lot of ways. Usually tactless, brazen, but also intelligent and strong. Also, her biceps!! From the start I loved how aggressive and tough she was, but it was also amazing to see her learn a modicum of patience and spiritual control. Her character arc had so much potential to flourish if not for that messy romantic plot, but through it all, her kindness and capacity for good and being Avatar to all people still managed to shine through.
