The sequel to the fan comic How I Became Yours based off of the show Avatar: The Last Airbender , How I Became Yours: Rise Of The Agni Army is a fancomic created by Jackie Diaz and co-authored by a fellow named Patrick BP. Ms. Diaz was notorious for continuous tracing, stolen photographs, and bad Photoshops within the first comic. While only one partial chapter has been released so far, it seems that she's up to the same old shenanigans.The comic starts off much as the first one did with a dream sequence flashback. In this, it shows an attack on the fire nation from the perspective of Lilith, Zuko and Katara's daughter. She wakes and after a short argument with her brother, Kuzon, they both leave to train. While training, they both experience flashbacks about the their time at the water tribe immediately following the attack. Once this ends, we move on to Poe, Aang and Toph's son, who is causing trouble. Ling, his twin sister, stops him and these two also have an argument before Ling buries him up to his neck in the ground and walks off. Then we get to see Miracle, Sokka and Azula's daughter, as she interacts with two children in the North Pole in a filler scene...which leads to another flashback sequence of the treatment Lilith and Kuzon received in the Water Tribes due to their unorthodox parentage.The comic is located right here. It can also be found here, if and when Ms. Diaz friendslocks this comic too.
Artistic License - Biology: The awkward anatomy of some of the poses, poor genealogy of the kids mentioned below, and her very very strange hands, it seems that Ms. Diaz still only has a questionable grasp on the basic structure of the human body.
Artistic License - Physics: Lilith breathes fire while doing a handstand. The flames execute a perfect right angle - supposedly to show wind or something - so that it looks like she has a big, fiery tongue waggling over the cliff. First off, no wind would do that; it'd just dissipate the fire, making a huge smoky mess. Second, even if Lilith is a firebender, no bender in the show displayed that level of control over flames, so A Wizard Did It doesn't cut it. All in all, it just looks ridiculous.
Color-Coded for Your Convenience: When in Water Tribe territory, Kuzon and Lilith wear red parkas. Never mind that those parkas would have to be especially made for them, in a place where red dye is presumably hard-to-find. And never mind that they are already set apart enough from the Water Tribe children with the differences in appearance they've acquired from their mixed ancestry.
Conspicuous CG: Not quite as bad as the first comic - more effort can be seen in the polar backgrounds, for example. However, the first panel is still quite obviously a photo of the Forbidden Palace.
Delusions of Eloquence: Like the prequel, it is peppered with this trope. The most Egregious example is on the poster. Evocation is not used that way, unless of course the commentor is saying this story is a demon brought out of the pits of hell. Considering the fact that he's the co-author of the sequel, it's reasonable to assume that is not what he meant at all.
Disproportionate Retribution: Ling thinks Poe is acting childish, so she sinks him up to his neck in earth. This leaves him open to being run over by unsuspecting carts, stepped on, and/or possible suffocation if it is hard enough for him to breathe. This, after his joy ride through the city hadn't permanently harmed anyone, and just as he was apologizing for the argument he had with his sister afterwards. And yet Ling is supposed to be the sympathetic one.
Inadequate Inheritor: Poe is scolded for being too irresponsible to live up to his parents' fame. Subverted in that a random old man is scolding him for this reason, not his parents. Averted in that he's exactly like Aang was in his younger days, only more destructive.
In the Hood: The character who kills Zuko wears a hood that hides everything except for one burning yellow eye. One guess as to who that is.
Mama Bear: Ironically, Azula is exactly like her mother in this way. The bullies who torment Kuzon and Lilith run away pretty darn fast when she's through with them...and probably require a change of clothes as well.
Mixed Ancestry: Lilith and Kuzon, being among the most visibly biracial, get the brunt of the drama that is the result of this trope. Miracle doesn't for some reason... either the Water Tribe is more accepting of her because the Moon Spirit healed her, or they just got used to her. It's a non-issue for Poe and Ling.
Recycled Soundtrack: During her death scene, Katara manages to copy lyrics, nearly word for word, from Tarzan's "You'll Be In My Heart." That's saying nothing of the Mufasa and Obi-Wan Kenobi quotes that follow in the same text bubble.
Strong Family Resemblance: Lilith, Ling, and Miracle all look almost exactly like their mothers; Kuzon and Poe take after their fathers, only Poe has hair and a distinct lack of Aang's trademark airbender tattoos. The only difference is that their eye colors are all changed to reflect the opposite parent.
Trailers Always Spoil: The artist tries to downplay Mai's involvement with the raid on the Fire Nation by making the character look ominously anonymous. Unfortunately, Mai is prominently displayed on the first poster, and given that Zuko's murderer is a knife-wielder with a grudge against the royal family, it's pretty easy to figure out who she is.
Training Montage: Kuzon and Lilith do one of these bits toward the beginning of the comic. Kuzon seems to be learning how to surf on a big wave of water that has no source which the reader can see. Lilith is practicing breath control - while doing fairly pointless handstands and backflips. The whole thing seems like nothing more than an excuse to show off the childrens' bodies and equipment.
