I'll Tell You What You Want To Know, Just Please Don't Bloodbend Me

Seriously. I guess there aren't all that many types of torture I could withstand, but bloodbending from the Avatar series is probably the most ghastly one. I'll never forget when they introduced bloodbending in Avatar: The Last Airbender. I thought "Wait… this is a kid's show? This is the most ghastly thing I've ever seen!"


The concept is simple: Waterbenders can manipulate water, and so bloodbenders learn how to manipulate our… blood… in our VEINS and MOVE US AROUND LIKE PUPPETS.

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say: Barf!

This Comic-Con cosplay by Shumpe is pretty darned outstanding, with two more cosplayers dressed as Mako and Bolin (the folks behind their costumes can be found here). Apparently they jumped (?) to make the illusion complete.

Either way, as fun and funny as this picture may be, let's not forget the HORRIFIC TRUTH of what's going on here.

Is bloodbending the worst thing you can think of? When someone kills someone in a movie by pushing an air bubble into their IV, does it make you puke all over the TV? Just me? Feel free to discuss that or whatever else, here or over in the Talk Amongst Yourselves forum. Have nice Tuesday chatting, and a pleasant evening.


Bloodbend...heh, that's practically the premise of Deadmen Wonderland.
