  1. I was a fan of the last question to John Rogers and did not stop listening- maybe this is how the wrestling fans feel. If you can have a Wrestlemania special, I’m sure you could have a D&D/Pathfinder special…

  2. Nice call with the Spider-Man parallels in regards to the Legend of Korra. I didn’t see those at first. I saw it as Golden Age Superman, Batman, and Robin. Korra’s super against criminals, ridiculously powerful from birth, strong morals, and an inspiration to townspeople. Mako’s parents were killed by a mugger when he was a kid, and he grimaces all the time. And Bo Lin is the comedy relief, and more enthusiastic than Mako.

  3. Regarding legend of Korra, Visually, the bad guy Amon does look like Dr. Doom, psychologically, his motive is more like Magneto. He is a non bender, he and his follower
    “equalist” are fighting the dominance of the bender. All council members are bender. Amon cause would make sense if the benders are
    oppressing the general population.

  4. Regarding Legend of Korra i think the parallels are the urban noir setting and the now recurring theme of family members being killed by benders as a origin story for the support cast.
