Is it just me or does Zuko's arc remind me of Stan's? At least in the way it was described in that post. Idk I don't remember too much of atla so I may be wrong
I don’t know what post you’re referring to, but YES, there are definitely parallels between the banished Fire Nation prince and the Man of Mystery.
Just think of Zuko’s backstory, and then look at Stan, who had a terrible father than cast him out of his home with a near-impossible task to achieve:
A superior sibling who he felt he could never measure up to:
A burn scar that physically haunts him and reminds him of a painful past event:
Perhaps most importantly, despite all his mistakes and failures, he finds love, hope and friendship in the company of a brother and sister…
…a wise but fun-loving youth with a heart of gold…
…and a badass girl who takes no shit and could single-handedly beat everyone up jfc.
I rest my case
