Back story: Frozen in ice with his friend and pet, Aang (Noah Ringer) awakens to find most of what he knew, and the monks who raised him in the airbending ways, gone. He seeks to unite the warring kingdoms and learn the ways of the fire, water and earth spirits along the way. Method of violence: He trained, a la Shaolin monks, in a type of martial arts and is very good at it. But that's only part of his strength. He's able to manipulate wind, water, fire and earth to devastating effect.
