** 1) There's no confirmation that Firebenders need existing sources of fire to bend. The fact that we see at least 2 firebenders in the movie create fire/heat without a source proves that [[HateDumb silly hater delusion]] incorrect. For all you know, the Movieverse setting could just be a world where proper Firebending (with sources) is a forgotten art--NOT a world where all firebending is source required--and the filmmaker could be planning on using the "Sun Warriors" storyline as the link to bringing the art back into the nation.
:: : 2) No, it would NOT mean any non-Bender with a pail of water could defeat one, because the Firebender could easily block the water with his own firebending just like Cartoon!Zuko does to Cartoon!Katara's waterbending attacks.

*** No, because dumping a small bucket of water on someone does not magically make them unable to bend anymore. Never mind how they wouldn't just stand there and let someone douse them. It wouldn't be too difficult for them to move out of the way.

** In cases like the siege at the North Pole, they had a bunch of ships that were lobbing fireballs into the city, causing damage and providing the firebenders with a constant source of ammunition. Also, fire spreads on its own, so just one source could gradually form many more of them as a battle wore on.

*** Granted, the show had a similar problem with imprisoning firebenders. How exactly did anyone manage to subdue people who could shoot flames out of their hands at will? And why hadn't anyone tried escaping from prisons sooner?

*** Again, the battle didn't start till much later. The Fire Nation seemed to wait until night to attack, meaning there should have been plenty of time for the Water Tribe to put out the lanterns.

* Why do people say Zuko's scar is ''smaller'' than it was in the original cartoon? The damage done does seem to be lighter in coloration, and is hard to see at certain angles, but the extent of the burn seems roughly the same as it was in the show.

The only real difference is that his eyebrow and ear are still intact.

** What's so wrong about using theories to explain something that otherwise seems unexplained, I ask? Considering how much the film has already deviated from the source material, is it ''really'' such a crime that people are just trying to introduce a different, new sense of logic?

** Maybe there were just too many of them, and the Water Tribe had trouble with running around trying to extinguish each one while more sources of fire were being launched into the city.
