** The entire Katara/Aang romance is this (then again, not a lot of fans liked it in the original series either). Is it cute or downright annoying with the non-stop "sweetie" pet names and oogieness?

* BadassDecay: Katara becomes less of an ActionGirl and more of a SatelliteLoveInterest with each instalment of the comics. The narrative has her life revolve around Aang and being [[http://66.media.tumblr.com/da55930072e92161f309d0af34f44ffe/tumblr_inline_o9am57AM221r3cqrr_540.png primarily defined as his "girlfriend"]]. This, along with multiple other reasons has made the Kataang ship increasingly unpopular among fans. Katara's role here is still more than what she eventually becomes in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' though.

** Also the main story of Fire Nation Colonies and Harmony Restoration Movement, which the former had to be forcefully moved despite having assimilated with Earth Kingdom culture, showed the difficulty in reparation to Earth Kingdom for previous atrocities along with Fire Nations citizens who were decent and had GoneNative. Considering that many countries during the Post-Colonialism had controversial removal of non-nationals along with racial tensions in RealLife, this is something to be learned for many readers on the complications in nations that had gained independence from colonists.

* AbandonShipping: Many people that previously liked the Katara/Aang ship have come to dislike it now that they are officially together as they have fallen into a ShippingBedDeath. They are portrayed as [[TrueLoveIsBoring unrealistically perfect]], continuously [[SickeningSweethearts flaunting obnoxious displays of action]] with Katara becoming [[DemotedToSatelliteLoveInterest a trophy for Aang]] in the process.

** Katara being turned into arm candy or a prize for Aang has not gone over well with her fans. With many people objecting to the Kataang ship due to CharacterDerailment.
** Aang spends a lot of time with the Official Avatar Aang Fan Club and ignores Katara in the process. She wants attention from her boyfriend because he is constantly hanging around other girls with crushes on him and who often insult her. She becomes upset at this but instead of telling Aang about it, she just internalises her feelings and learns that she is in the wrong for being jealous largely due to {{Chickification}}. There are multiple panels where Katara is just left to the side being sad while Aang is left completely oblivious and having the time of his life with his fangirls. These are signs of an [[UnfortunateImplications emotionally neglectful relationship]].
** [[FanDumb Kataangers constantly harassing Gene Yang has also contributed to the growing unpopularity of the ship]]. When Gene Yang admitted to liking the Zuko/Katara (Zutara) pairing, he received hundreds of horrible messages from Kataang (Katara/Aang) shippers who accused him of ruining the series forever just because of his shipping preferences, with some Kataangers even threatening to kill him. This was before the comics were even written so it greatly hindered his original plans of exploring the characters and story properly out of fear from [[UnpleasableFanbase the backlash he would receive]].

** The handling of imperialism. The comic treats it is as a positive thing; apart from extreme ValuesDissonance from real-world Asians and Native people across the world, the original series also showcased how horrible it was. Zuko realized it was wrong but the comics have him backtrack on his opinions and turns it into a pro-WhiteMansBurden message. A class divide based on nationality is created with exploitation of Earth Kingdom people by Fire Nation civilians, Fire Nation colonialists were sent to occupy land not because they needed a place to live but to ''replace'' Earth Kingdom inhabitants, and the promotion of multiracial families is a form of eugenics that has been used for centuries in real life as a tactic for "breeding out" native people. The narrative employs the usual imperialist apologetics while handwaving some others - it states that colonization isn't all that bad because standards of living have improved, the colonialists somehow have a right to the land just as much as native people, and multiracial people are good because of something about multiculturalism. Aang and Katara even bring up some problems with colonialism but decide it's all ok because they are [[InsaneTrollLogic an international couple which somehow equates to imperialist policies]] and quickly forget about it. These arguments downplay the harsh reality of colonialism or make no sense.
*** The real-world inspiration of Yu Dao is Qingdao, a Chinese city occupied by German and Japanese imperialists. The native Chinese people suffered under oppressive policies and were taken from their ancestral homes. There remains a strong German influence on the area but peace was only maintained when control was given back to the Chinese people.
** Similar to how the series handles colonialism, many people were also uncomfortable by the way cultural appropriation was addressed. Aang flip-flopped on his opinion of the [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy Official Avatar Aang Fan Club pretending they were Air Nomads]] despite them being of Earth Kingdom or Fire Nation heritage. He settled on it being fine if he could teach them about it but in WesterAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra we see [[ParentalNeglect he never attempted to teach Bumi II or Kya about Air Nomad culture despite them being of Air Nomad descent]] but did so with Tenzin, his only airbending child. This carried many real-world UnfortunateImplications that mixed people could never partake in their own culture unless they "passed" in a certain way but people with no connection to a culture could join in or exploit different ones for fun.
