“Avatar: The Last Airbender”, one of the most popular animated series of all time, has also been one of the most profitable.
Unlike any other, the series spawned a franchise empire and created legions of devoted fans who continue to watch the series to this day non-stop.
It’s still considered one of the most successful shows of all time, although it only lasted for three seasons.
To this day, fans continue to talk about the series and the vast expanded universe it built of characters and circumstances.
What does ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ mean?
In 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender first aired on Nickelodeon.
The series tells the story of 12-year-old Aang, his people’s last survivor and the new Avatar, a human who is able to bend all four elements, fire, water, earth, and air.
It also tells the story of Zuko, an exiled Fire Nation prince who, by capturing Aang, tries to restore the honor of his nation.
The series was critically acclaimed by critics over the years, including five Annie Awards and a Primetime Emmy Award, and received a number of awards.

Zuko himself became one of the series’ absolute stars, the personality that most resonated with viewers of all ages.
The subject of a number of ancillary content, including comics, movies and a prequel novel series, was Zuko’s journey through young adulthood.
Zuko’s friendship with his mother
Why ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Is Iconichttps://t.co/FhDJOHsoXc- Jacob Airey (@realJacobAirey) December 22, 2020One of the core storylines of Avatar: The Last Airbender was the relationship of Zuko with his father. It is revealed at the beginning of the series that Zuko was exiled by his father, Fire Lord Ozai, after Zuko spoke out at a war meeting against his plans.
Lord Ozai challenged Zuko to a duel, but the young man declined, leading Lord Ozai to send him, after burning his face, away from the Fire Nation forever. Only if he managed to catch the Avatar was Zuko allowed to return.
Around the time Lord Ozai came to power, in the mythology of Avatar: The Last Airbender, Zuko’s mother mysteriously vanished.
She was viewed as dead to the audience.
Nevertheless, exactly how or why his mother vanished was never explained in the animated series, and while Zuko struggles emotionally with the consequences of her disappearance, viewers did not learn until much later what really happened to Zuko’s mother.
Zuko asks his father about his mother in the series finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender and suggests that she might not be dead. His missing mother was first listed in the Legend of Korra, one of the Avatar-related TV series, and then again in The Quest Part Two comic book series.

What Advertisers Should Benefit From ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ https://t.co/W5HGGBXFyp pic.twitter.com/5If9u0Dr5j- Michael Brenner (@BrennerMichael) December 18, 2020 ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’: A catastrophic ending plan would have been the initial final plan.
Zuko, now a Fire Lord, asks Azula to help him find out the truth about his missing mother in ‘The Hunt Part Two.’
After convincing Ozai not to kill Zuko and permanently altering her appearance, they discover that Zuko’s mother, Ursa, has gone into hiding.
A spirit named “Mother of Faces.” even deleted her recollections. Ursa apologized to Zuko and Azula for leaving them, and she is able to reunite with her son after her memories have been magically recovered.
Ursa’s reunion with Azula, like her meeting with Ozai, is certainly less joyful – she sees the former Fire Lord in captivity, utterly powerless. In the end, the story of Zuko comes full circle – although many fans who skipped the comics may not have captured all the details.
