Let’s talk about how Suyin is the badass mother the Avatar franchise has been needing since forever:
- great mother, has on-screen relationships with her children, but she’s not silent or saintly, nor is she defined/limited to that role.
- she’s an important character of her own, with a prominent role outside her family and has relationships with many characters.
- her involvement far exceeds that of her husband in everything
- she’s a political leader and authority figure, and she gets to be involved in active decision making
- she’s KICKASS as a fighter and bender,
like… Su’s what we’ve been waiting for since ATLA, we need more mothers like her just, yes please.
