    here is the feat I was talking about.

    Anyone know how much water is being moved there.

    No, tampering with water, Percy has only shown hardening.

    Unless you count Percy breaking Hubbard Glacier as manipulating ice.

    “Even if he tanked 0.1% of that energy (lol at the low ball),”

    You think that’s a low-ball? Not in the slightest. There’s no way Percy was hit by 0.1% of the explosion considering he’s ONE person, and the explosion “toppled 150 square miles of forest in six minutes”. He just doesn’t cover enough surface area to be hit by even 0.001% of the explosion, let alone the amount you suggest.
    =
    Not to say Percy can’t use speed to his advantage, but there’s no way Percy is city-level, especially when he was only launched “a few hundred feet” into the air.

  4. LadyRamkin March 17, 2015 at 8:32 pm -      #104

    So Percy can actually be prevented from controlling water? interesting.

    “Is she capable of air-bending to fly while also throwing stones at Percy or something like that?”

    Yeah, i think Korra is the first avatar to actively bend two different elements simultaneously while not in the avatar state. While in the avatar state she should be able to control all four in very large amounts with ease. Unfortunately she wont be able to call upon the skill of her past lives so it will be her own ingenuity and skill, but with a massive power boost.



    For what Aang can do while in the avatar state, which is the same power that Korra has.

    He also makes like a 50 foot tall fish man made of water that he can control, though i cant remember if he had help on that one…

  5. Nsl98 March 17, 2015 at 8:39 pm -      #105

    Well, he was prevented, until he out willed Phorcys or whatever. Besides, at that point in the story, Percy was developing a hydrophobia thing, so he thought his powers were malfunctioning.

    He wasn’t going all out with the attempts until he thought about his girlfriend, then he decided to get stuff done.
    —-
    I think he can do the same to Korra.

    “Yeah, i think Korra is the first avatar to actively bend two different elements simultaneously while not in the avatar state.”

    Aang has done it in the comics but never in combat like Korra often does.

    “Anyone know how much water is being moved there.”

    Rough estimate:
    Assuming each blimp is 200 feet long.
    One blimp is 31 pixels
    Each pixel is 6.45 feet.
    Entire land area is very roughly about 700 X 270 pixels.
    That’s 4515 x 1741.5 feet.
    Or 7862872.5 square feet.
    Assuming he raised the water 10 feet to put the fire out on the trees, that’s 78628725 cubic feet.
    Or about 588 million gallons.

    “Aang has done it in the comics but never in combat like Korra often does.”

    …………….There are comics…….. O.O……… HOW? WHEN? WHERE???? Must read! please tell!!!!

    “…………….There are comics…….. O.O……… HOW? WHEN? WHERE???? Must read! please tell!!!!”

    It’s most around Aang’s era and bridging TLA to LoK. Like how republic city started up. Toph’s metalbending school. They just finished an arc dealing with Toph.

    I kind of hope they do Korra to.

    Are we sure that was purely him with the trees though? Wasn’t his dad helping at least a little bit?

    Off topic
    I must have been reading the wrong threads.
    Epicazeroth, Lowk, Ragnorke, FS, Aelfinn and CC. I haven’t seen one of you for quite some time.

  11. Aelfinn March 17, 2015 at 9:13 pm -      #111

    I pop in and out. None of the recent matches have been particularly interesting to me, but I always keep myself updated. I mean, this fight is pretty interesting, I just didn’t really know enough to form a strong opinion on the fight as a whole, even though I may be debating some specifics.

  12. Limbo Lowk March 17, 2015 at 10:42 pm -      #112

    “Or about 588 million gallons.”

    So Avatar State should be capable of fighting percy in an even enough manner like a typical waterbending fight… Except on a bigger scale.
    ===
    If percy doesn’t do as ice to well that may be a way of hindering his water manipulating attacks. Would icicles be capable of hurting Percy or would it waterness just make him stronger.

    “You think that’s a low-ball? Not in the slightest. There’s no way Percy was hit by 0.1% of the explosion considering he’s ONE person, and the explosion “toppled 150 square miles of forest in six minutes”. He just doesn’t cover enough surface area to be hit by even 0.001% of the explosion, let alone the amount you suggest.”

    How is toppling 150 square miles in six minutes relevant here?
    He was at point blank range at the microsecond of the explosion. What happens 6 minutes later has nothing to do with it.
    The energy originated from a point, and it then spread to 150 square miles. The energy wasn’t evenly spread out over the 150 square miles.

    volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/st_helens/
    “During the 1980 eruption the upper 400 m (1,300 ft) of the summit was removed by a huge debris avalanche,”

    The crater on the summit was 400m after the debris avalanche.
    But keep in mind my calc was based on ONLY the original upward stream of energy, which on its own didn’t cause even the 400m crater.
    So lets say it was 300.

    Then consider how energy is attracted. If a cold man is put into a hot room, he wont just absorb the heat energy that would have been in his surface area.
    Heat energy will actually be attracted to him. Granted it doesn’t make a massive difference, but it’s worth mentioning.

    I still think 0.1% is a SLIGHT low ball (although not as much as i previously though). But 0.01% definitely is.
    You’re saying he only tanked 1 in every 10,000 joules of energy… from ONLY the concentrated upstream of initial energy… Which hit him at point blank…

    Heck, even if you wanna say he tanked 0.0001% of it, that’s still 200 tons of TNT.

    Depends. How fast do these icicles move? And there is Hurricane Percy, which makes most projectiles useless.

    So, the match thing got out of moderation, then i edited it, and now its under moderation again, and it tells me it doesn’t exist… so that happened.

    Can Korra control mist? As in water vapour? If she can then she can seriously crimp Percy’s hurricane. Also Air bending can do that too… and possibly fire bending if she heats up the air… or would that make the hurricane stronger?

    “Can Korra control mist? As in water vapour?”

    I think thats a combat thing. Either breath mist or dispersing water shot at you into it. Also I think the game had it where she is capable of pulling out moisture in the air as well, though that might have been a game mechanic.
    Also she waterbended steam and blasted it though the wall

    I remember Katara being taught that how to bend water out of the air… and out of plants…………………………………

    There is absolutely no reason why Korra shouldn’t be able to do it, I just don’t know if she knows she can.

    Well she was taught by Katara and the game where she does it is apparently canon. So going by the qte scenes I’d say that means she can.

    “The energy originated from a point, and it then spread to 150 square miles. The energy wasn’t evenly spread out over the 150 square miles.”

    I was trying to illustrate that Percy wasn’t affected by an appreciable amount of the explosion, as the explosion still expended its energy over a very large area.

    Right, but explosive energy doesn’t spread due to diffusion of molecules like heat can.
    =
    “You’re saying he only tanked 1 in every 10,000 joules of energy… from ONLY the concentrated upstream of initial energy… Which hit him at point blank…”

    It’s not like the giant blast of steam came through a little hose nozzle. It was a giant section of rock/steam that exploded due to the sudden pressure change.
    =
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_eruption_of_Mount_St._Helens

    The landslide that triggered the steam explosion moved at 110 miles per hour (or 49 meters per second), and the steam explosion happened “a few seconds” after the landslide started. The landslide that triggered the steam eruption was 2.4 kilometers in diameter, but I’ll say the exposed magma/steam was 1/8 that width.

    If we say the explosion happened five seconds after the landslide started, the exposed area would have been 245 meters in length and 300 meters in width (though that could be argued greater).

    That’s 73,761 square meters.

    Human skin is 2 square meters, but only one side would be exposed.
    hypertextbook.com/facts/2001/IgorFridman.shtml

    That’s 0.00136% of the energy, or 271 tons of TNT. That is the absolute highest amount of energy I could see hitting Percy. However, considering he wasn’t even launched into SPACE, I would still doubt that’s even accurate, as 271 tons of TNT, if directed into one individual, would put them well past the atmosphere.
    =
    EDIT
    Yeah, 271 tons of TNT would move a 70kg person at 180,000 meters per second. That is Mach 524 and WELL past escape velocity.

  22. LadyRamkin March 18, 2015 at 6:01 pm -      #122

    It is posts like that, that make me wonder why I bother, the sheer amount of awesome far surpasses anything I will ever achieve… And then I remember that this is the only place on the entire planet where I can actually hold a conversation with another person, which totally outweighs my feeling of inadequacy.

    “I was trying to illustrate that Percy wasn’t affected by an appreciable amount of the explosion, as the explosion still expended its energy over a very large area.”

    Right, but it was expended over that large area once it spread… Which was AFTER Percy tanked it from its original source.

    “Right, but explosive energy doesn’t spread due to diffusion of molecules like heat can.”

    Dunno about you, but i was talking about Thermal energy.

    “It’s not like the giant blast of steam came through a little hose nozzle. It was a giant section of rock/steam”

    Right… Which is why i said 0.1% rather than a 100%.

    “the exposed area would have been 245 meters in length and 300 meters in width (though that could be argued greater).
    That’s 73,761 square meters.”

    Similar dimensions to what i got, but i forgot to take it from a multi dimensional perspective, and only looked at it from 1D.
    So yea, you’re probably right.

    “That’s 0.00136% of the energy, or 271 tons of TNT. That is the absolute highest amount of energy I could see hitting Percy.”

    That’s the absolute highest amount of the upwards steam eruption. Yea. Perhaps.
    There are more aspects to that volcanic eruption though which haven’t been touched on.
    Although the upward steam does seem like the most relevant one.

    “However, considering he wasn’t even launched into SPACE, I would still doubt that’s even accurate, as 271 tons of TNT, if directed into one individual, would put them well past the atmosphere.”

    Or you know, maybe it had something to do with the fact that he’s more durable than a normal individual.
    With your logic, most of the hits Superman has tanked are never above a certain threshold, since he doesn’t usually get thrown out of orbit. (Don’t bother mentioning that he can fly but Percy can’t. You get my point)
    Or something to do with Percy having water/vapor shields to reduce the pressure.

    “Yeah, 271 tons of TNT would move a 70kg person at 180,000 meters per second. That is Mach 524 and WELL past escape velocity.”

    But when does that EVER apply in Fiction?
    The effect of Forces on characters are based on characters durability. Not on their weight.
    You know that damn well.

  25. Ragnorke March 18, 2015 at 6:26 pm -      #125

    When it comes down to it,
    Having the equivalent of 200,000 kilograms of TNT explode right on your face (and having tanked 100% of that energy… So… Its more like having it all blow up inside your skin, rather than being in the middle of the explosion), and not only staying alive but actually staying conscious, is a pretty incredible feat.

    Has Korra done anything of the sort?

    @Ramkin: “He also makes like a 50 foot tall fish man made of water that he can control”
    He had the Ocean Spirit’s help.
    ===
    @Nsl: Yeah, he beat Phorcys. But, remember: in the Riordanverse (that’s what I’m calling it) mythological beings gain and lose power depending on how well they’re remembered. Who the Hell knows who Phorcys is?
    ===
    @watcher: I generally only participate in matches if I’ve finished at least one of the works involved. Sometimes I just don’t care about the particular match, also.
    ===
    @Aelfinn: I’m not going to argue this point, as I don’t think you could do calcs without it. But Percy didn’t cause the 1980 explosion. Battle of the Labyrinth is set in 2008.
    ===
    @Rag: “The effect of Forces on characters are based on characters durability.”
    Uh, Superman (and others, but you used Supes as an example) punches people very high all the time. He also regularly gets knocked large distances by punches. He got knocked to Ireland in H’el on Earth, which was clearly not affected by his durability.

    Also, while that applies in other works, it rarely does in Riordan’s books. All his character get knocked around by physical attacks.

  27. Jake_Uzumaki March 18, 2015 at 7:15 pm -      #127

    “Who the Hell knows who Phorcys is?”

    The problem is this is a universe where a decent amount of people have god/demigod blood in their veins (enough that there are people several dozen generations down from demigods that know whats what) so its possible knowledge of more obscure people is more prevalent in Riordanverse than ours. Not saying it definitely is but this is a universe where apparently the Greek/Roman, Egyptian, and Norse gods at the least are real and still moderately active.
    By that same token though its hard to know which myths happened exactly the way they are written in our world and which ones didn’t.

    Again, not saying there is definitely a higher number, but it wouldn’t be surprising if there is.

    “He also regularly gets knocked large distances by punches.”

    Not arguing this, just clarifying, this is the anchoring principle right? Person A is durable enough to tank the blow but that force has to go somewhere meaning he goes flying unless he’s anchored to the ground in someway.

    Isn’t Katara the most powerful waterbender?
    (Forgive me if i’m wrong, it’s been a while since i looked at Avatar).

    “Uh, Superman (and others, but you used Supes as an example) punches people very high all the time. He also regularly gets knocked large distances by punches. He got knocked to Ireland in H’el on Earth, which was clearly not affected by his durability.”

    That could just simply mean that those attacks he’s taking are really strong. Stronger than those that don’t knock him back at least.

  29. LadyRamkin March 18, 2015 at 7:28 pm -      #129

    “Isn’t Katara the most powerful waterbender?”

    Um, well, I would have thought that Korra could do it by virtue of being the Avatar….
    And then there is the fact that IF Katara is the most powerful water bender, then the water bender that taught her that technique must be less powerful than her, so people less powerful than the most powerful can do it anyway…

  30. wingedlion March 18, 2015 at 7:47 pm -      #130

    “I would have thought that Korra could do it by virtue of being the Avatar….”

    She might be powerful enough to do it, but does she know how?

    “the water bender that taught her that technique must be less powerful than her, so people less powerful than the most powerful can do it anyway…”

    But IIRC the old lady (don’t remember her name) was only able to use those abilities through extremely difficult circumstances and experiences( being captured by the fire nation), and even then she took a long time to learn them. And she and Katara are the only people that i know of that are capable of such an ability.

  31. LadyRamkin March 18, 2015 at 7:52 pm -      #131

    “She might be powerful enough to do it, but does she know how?”

    Which is kind of why i bought it up…

    “But IIRC the old lady (don’t remember her name) was only able to use those abilities through extremely difficult circumstances and experiences( being captured by the fire nation),”

    That is how she learned to blood bend. Drawing water from the air and out of plants are just her being creative. like 90% of water benders live at the poles there is water everywhere they would never have to try these techniques.

    The water benders that live in the swamp control the water in the vines to control the vines, and katara has controlled her own sweat before. But she never even considered doing it before she was in a bind and needed water.

  32. wingedlion March 18, 2015 at 8:02 pm -      #132

    “Which is kind of why i bought it up…”

    Oops

    “like 90% of water benders live at the poles there is water everywhere they would never have to try these techniques.”

    And i get that, which is why i’m saying that while there are benders that may be perfectly capable of doing so, they don’t know how, as they never have had to do so before. And we have no idea if their as resourceful as the old lady. Or is that what your saying?

    “The water benders that live in the swamp control the water in the vines to control the vines, and katara has controlled her own sweat before. But she never even considered doing it before she was in a bind and needed water.”

    True, but in the first example, i’m assuming they were living there for a while, right? Meaning they would have alot of time to adapt their bending to the environment.
    As for Katara, she’s a very skilled waterbender. Not everyone might be as resourceful as her.

    Off-Topic: Seriously? They can control vines?

  33. Jake_Uzumaki March 18, 2015 at 8:04 pm -      #133

    Wouldn’t it be reasonable for Katara to at a minimum tell her about the concept? Since she was Korra’s teacher…I mean water bender Avatar, seems like teaching her how to get water in tough situations would be…reasonable.

  34. Jake_Uzumaki March 18, 2015 at 8:05 pm -      #134

    “Seriously? They can control vines?”

    They control the water in the vines. Its like bloodbending but with plants.

  35. wingedlion March 18, 2015 at 8:13 pm -      #135

    “Wouldn’t it be reasonable for Katara to at a minimum tell her about the concept? Since she was Korra’s teacher…I mean water bender Avatar, seems like teaching her how to get water in tough situations would be…reasonable.”

    If I recall though, i’m pretty sure Katara hated sucking the life out of plants almost as much as she hated bloodbending. It’s quite possible she didn’t teach her it because she thought it was amoral.

    “They control the water in the vines. Its like bloodbending but with plants.”

    Huh, that’s interesting.

  36. Jake_Uzumaki March 18, 2015 at 8:17 pm -      #136

    She was upset about the pretty flowers dying but it was nothing like the utter disgust to the point of breaking down crying she felt from Bloodbending.

    “She might be powerful enough to do it, but does she know how?”

    It has been demonstrated that she does. I was only hesitant to bring it up because I forgot there would be an actual canon reason behind it.

    Before this match starts, long before Percy had to fight the Marvel-verse takes on Thor that isn’t his 616 Self, I asked times-beyond-counting the following question,‘Were the Riordans on MONSTER Energy Drinks when some of those scenes were presented the way they were?’ It’s kind of scary when you think about that idea in particular, even without the fact there’s some things in the Wars Percy had to fight he’d want little more than to just forget about, in fact.
    O___O’

    Anyway, one of these days I’m gonna go hit Books 03 and 04 of The Legend of Korra but I do hope LadyRamkin’s next Magnum Opus of a group fight will be very well-done to say the least.

    “Uh, Superman (and others, but you used Supes as an example) punches people very high all the time. He also regularly gets knocked large distances by punches. He got knocked to Ireland in H’el on Earth, which was clearly not affected by his durability.”

    With the force they hit each other at, they should be sent flying to the Sun. Not Ireland.
    I’m not saying they don’t get knocked around, but they don’t get knocked around ANYWHERE NEAR as much as they should considering the Force/Mass equation Aelfinn was applying.

    ” I’m not going to argue this point, as I don’t think you could do calcs without it. But Percy didn’t cause the 1980 explosion. Battle of the Labyrinth is set in 2008.”

    Oh… Well… Ok then.
    Any idea how large it was?

    “I suppose, but there’s a certain inconsistency to apply physics to ONE part of an event to get a favorable calc, and then not apply physics to the rest of the event. I mean, the thought “Oh, Percy should fly into space” probably never crossed the author’s mind, I agree, but I don’t like it. I may agree tentatively for now, but…..”

    After the Volcanic event Percy is transported to the island of Ogyia(sp?), so the gods specifically took him from wherever he was launched and put him somewhere else.

    Also, space kind of doesn’t exist in PJ-verse.

    i think it does as in titan’s curse they mention the giant ball of gas of a sun floating out in space,so it does in some form.

    Add to the mix that a lot of Early Humanity that WASN’T from this Planet were said to be from Outer Space instead, and bred with the Earth-bound Humans from Early Earth and it gets more interesting, I can assure you.

    Though for now, we got some further aspects of the Fighting to address, so did no one but me bring up how Percy had to use the Waters of the River Lethe to erase Iapetus the Piercer’s Memories during the events of The Sword of Hades(From The Demigod Files) by chance?

    Well, im pretty sure Korra takes it. Superior control of water means that Percy’s range is gone, and korra’s control of the other 3 elements prevents Percy getting close. She man handles him with earth and air bending then melts him..

  47. Limbo Lowk March 22, 2015 at 3:23 pm -      #147

    I think Korra just pulls out a win. Multiple elements to attack with from sky below or all around. Including being powerful enough to defend against one of his main forms of attack and possible disrupt it.
    Close combat is a hazard but unless they are in water she should be capable of keeping distance between them. The thing about avatar is that most movement can be aid bending to defend or attack even retreating

    or something as simple as landing.
    ===
    Speaking of, how mobile how is Percy while manipulating large amounts of water?

  48. LadyRamkin March 22, 2015 at 3:39 pm -      #148

    He is usually pretty stationary as far as i remember

    He fights while in hurricane mode, described as “wading through enemies.”

    His hurricane was shown tossing cars around in his fight with Sobek’s son.

    Just throwing it out there, Percy has created waterspouts and rode them to reach his enemies.

    And if his water-speed is hypersonic, he should be more than capable of just launching himself out of the water to attack Korra at close range.

  51. Limbo Lowk March 22, 2015 at 10:18 pm -      #151

    “He fights while in hurricane mode, described as “wading through enemies.”

    Was it the same one though? One I recall tossing cars and stuff was big. The other I recall being smaller, more personal.

    “Just throwing it out there, Percy has created waterspouts and rode them to reach his enemies.”

    Against a girl who can turn that into ice and/or break it.

    “And if his water-speed is hypersonic, he should be more than capable of just launching himself out of the water to attack Korra at close range.”

    He’d have to set that up, which again isn’t ideal against someone who can make walls for him to splat himself on before he even starts flying. That or freeze the water he is in.

    @Ramkin
    “Well, im pretty sure Korra takes it. Superior control of water means that Percy’s range is gone, ”

    Wait what…?
    When did Korra demonstrate superior control of water?

    ” She man handles him with earth and air bending then melts him..”

    He’s still like 10 times faster than her.
    And he’s still like a thousand times more durable than her.
    And his sword can still can through stone like it’s paper.
    And he’s immune to burns.

    @Lowk
    “Speaking of, how mobile how is Percy while manipulating large amounts of water?”

    The only example that comes to mind is the water hands, which replicate his hand movements.
    Meaning they would move at sonic-hypersonic speeds.

    Also, as mentioned before, his hurricane pretty much throws everything around him into the air & freezes them in place.

    “The other I recall being smaller, more personal.”

    You mean the one he kept active for like 3 hours? which he used to constantly keep down an undying army of a few hundred skeleton warriors?

    “Against a girl who can turn that into ice and/or break it.”

    *Against a girl who’s not as fast as him.

  53. Limbo Lowk March 24, 2015 at 2:32 pm -      #153

    “When did Korra demonstrate superior control of water?”

    Nanomachi I mean Raava son. She grants avatars the pure power do stuff from summoning tsunamis to pulling in the oceans to drown a forest.
    Aelflinn calc’d it at #107
    ===
    “He’s still like 10 times faster than her.”

    When in water. Which she can freeze solid.
    ===
    “You mean the one he kept active for like 3 hours? which he used to constantly keep down an undying army of a few hundred skeleton warriors?”

    So it is a different one then?
    ===
    “*Against a girl who’s not as fast as him.”

    1. bring up the quote where he used it. How fast did he travel riding a waterspout?
    2. She reacted to an explosion a few meters from her. Only point he is faster then her is in movement speed while submerged in water.

  54. Cassie Hack March 24, 2015 at 2:35 pm -      #154

    I don’t even think it was a few meters, maybe a few feet though at the least. I feel like it was pretty much right in front of her. I could be remembering the scene wrong though.

  55. Ragnorke March 24, 2015 at 3:32 pm -      #155

    “Nanomachi I mean Raava son. She grants avatars the pure power do stuff from summoning tsunamis to pulling in the oceans to drown a forest.”

    Wait… Does Korra start off in her Avatar form thingy?
    Or is she able to do the ocean pulling right off the bat?

    “When in water. Which she can freeze solid.”

    If she’s fast enough.

    “So it is a different one then?”

    Yea, i recall 2 different hurricane feats.
    One was kept up for several hours against the skeleton army.
    The other was used to lift up a bunch of cars and a giant crocodile thing.

    ” She reacted to an explosion a few meters from her. Only point he is faster then her is in movement speed while submerged in water.”

    Honestly, i could react to an explosion a few meters from me. I don’t see anything superhuman about that.
    As for Percy, while in water he shitstomps Korra (Hypersonic is no joke).
    Even when out of water, in COMBAT speed, he appears as a blur to third person viewers & deflects bullets.
    He is undeniably much faster than Korra.

    And considering his water manipulation mimics his own movements in speed, i don’t see why he doesn’t just shitstomp Korra right off the bat.
    How much durability does her body have again? without any bending involved?

  56. LadyRamkin March 24, 2015 at 3:46 pm -      #156

    “He’s still like 10 times faster than her.”

    Doesnt matter, She can control the earth in such a way that he never gets near her and she can basically fly
    – – –
    “And he’s still like a thousand times more durable than her.”

    That doesn’t matter if he cant hit her since she can basically fly with her bending, And she can drop massive massive rocks on him, or met him.
    – – –
    “And his sword can still can through stone like it’s paper.”
    – – –
    His sword has a limited length, If she throws a rock large enough making a cut in it is meaningless
    – – –
    “And he’s immune to burns.”

    High resistance not immunity, the guys attacking him in the volcano were going to chuck lava at him until he burn to deat and Percy knew that it would work, hence the water tidalwave vocanosplosion thing. Enough fire chucked his way and he will burn like everyone else.
    – – –
    “When did Korra demonstrate superior control of water?”

    When she can do more with it than make hands and spin some mist, also she covered and then froze that entire mech thing.

  57. Ragnorke March 24, 2015 at 4:10 pm -      #157

    “Doesnt matter, She can control the earth in such a way that he never gets near her and she can basically fly”

    Did you really just say speed doesn’t matter?
    You realize speed blitzing is very much a thing on BankGambling right?
    How exactly does she plan on “controlling the earth” fast enough?

    I guess a large part of this depends on how far away from each other they start off.

    “Enough fire chucked his way and he will burn like everyone else.”

    Well… No.
    More fire doesn’t make the fire any hotter.
    So is Korras fire hotter than Lava?

    “When she can do more with it than make hands and spin some mist, ”

    Well Percy did move an entire Cruise ship which have a weight of 40,000,000 kilograms on average.
    To put that into perspective, a car weighs 1,000 kilograms.

    He did also lift the sky.
    Make from that what you will.

    ” also she covered and then froze that entire mech thing.”

    Assuming that mech was 25 stories tall (which is being generous in my opinion), that’s 75m high.
    Meanwhile Percy made a tidalwave/watersprout which towered over a 110m tall glacier.
    (Which then broke the glacier and created MILES worth of new water)

    “Wait… Does Korra start off in her Avatar form thingy?
    Or is she able to do the ocean pulling right off the bat?”

    Avatar state is sort of a mental thing. You can either activate it or it activates itself.
    ===
    “If she’s fast enough.”

    Considering she can react to a supersonic blast wave from a surprised point I’d say yes.
    ===
    “Honestly, i could react to an explosion a few meters from me. I don’t see anything superhuman about that.”

    That… sounds like downplay. How? Even from 5 meters you’d have around then 20 milliseconds to do anything against something just under supersonic…. Rag, are you master chief?

    She did it from an unsuspecting state, then moved arms and brought up a barrier AS the it was about to hit her and friends.

  59. Limbo Lowk March 24, 2015 at 4:22 pm -      #159

    “So is Korras fire hotter than Lava?”

    She has firebended to burned through chains.
    And in avatar state flames can melt entire links and split the ground using heat alone. Korra might not have the same precision or skill though to not melt the people touching those chain though but thats less of a worry here unless their are civilians around.

    Anyway whether they use iron or steel that is a few hundred degrees hotter then lava.

  60. Ragnorke March 24, 2015 at 4:27 pm -      #160

    “That… sounds like downplay. How? Even from 5 meters you’d have around then 20 milliseconds ”

    20 milliseconds seems close to the average human reaction time…

    “She did it from an unsuspecting state, then moved arms and brought up a barrier AS the it was about to hit her and friends.”

    Ah, i see. Kinda figured it was just aim-dodging.

    “Considering she can react to a supersonic blast wave from a surprised point I’d say yes.”

    What was the blast again..? (post number will do if its already been posted)

    “Avatar state is sort of a mental thing. You can either activate it or it activates itself.”

    I’d assume it’s based on reaction time to some degree.

  61. Limbo Lowk March 24, 2015 at 4:34 pm -      #161

    “” also she covered and then froze that entire mech thing.”

    Avatars have the power to flood an entire forest and canyon.

    Here’s te quote where he hits hypersonic:

    . I willed the ocean currents to aid me. Water swirled around me, and I shot toward the surface at speeds that would’ve caused any normal human to pop like a balloon.
    –Last Olympian, p. 43
    —-
    Aelfinn calced that to be around Mach 4. Hypersonic is like Mach 4.8-Mach 5.

  63. Limbo Lowk March 24, 2015 at 5:03 pm -      #163

    “20 milliseconds seems close to the average human reaction time…”

    Maybe if your Batman or Master chief, Which I’m beginning to suspect you are.
    www.humanbenchmark.com/tests/reactiontime/statistics
    ^Thats was from people having to tapping a button.
    Korra had to move her arms around in less then less then 20 milliseconds a significantly shorter amount of time it takes a normal someone to react by tapping a button or for anyone to blink. And that’s assuming she was sixteen feet away which going by how small the room was that is bit high.
    ===
    Little bit off-topic: Also just realized the old feats like Batman moving a lot in the time it takes for someone to blink and him dodging bullets actually complement each other in a way.
