Surface-level worldbuilding that collapses on deeper scrutiny. Zuko's journey is a walking plot hole. Spoilers for Season 2 of Avatar: The Last Airbender currently on Netflix.

Sam Raimi’s acquiescence to Disney’s coded anti-LGBT stance is so disgusting. Not unexpected from a horrible and incompetent film director who obeys his corporate handlers at Disney.
This awful story reminds me of my own doubts as a writer. Mark Millar’s amazingly derivative and average story couldn’t be saved even by the hands of the intellectually superior Japanese screenplay writers. Super Crooks is a painful reminder that Americans don’t know what they want as entertainment. Spoilers for this terribly boring story will follow. Spoilers also for every series that will be mentioned in this article, because I just can’t help but compare it to other series.
Despite the similarities between the two series, everyone is gushing over Arcane and nobody is talking about RWBY anymore.
