What happens to normal people, when others get powers? What rights do they have and are those rights respected? And when the people with powers push the non powered around- what happens when the non powered push back?
Paul and I talk about non powered people in powered worlds. We focus in particular on Avatar: Legend of Korra, season 1, and how it handles this question, but we broaden the topic, and cover a number of other stories. Whether you’re a hardcore Korra fan, or have never seen it, you’ll be able to follow the discussion.
