Of all the things to love about The Legend of Korra, perhaps what I loved best from the very start (other than Korra's awesome childhood introduction of, "I'm the avatar! Deal with it!") is that she's absolutely, undoubtedly, no-two-ways-about-it, a person of color. I recall the earliest promo-stills from a year or so ago, and she was shaded more like Katara had been -- but now? She's definitely not white. I wonder if the animators went out of their way to make sure that was quite clear. Whether or not they did, I think it's freaking awesome. She's clearly a woman of color, and she freaking kicks ass.

My favorite single moment? This little exchange:

Tenzin: You must promise me that your teenage years won't be like this
Jinora: *deadpan* I will make no such promises.

It doesn't matter that I'm twenty now -- Korra is pretty much the kind of protagonist the little girl in me has always wanted.
