“Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished.” – Avatar, Opening Sequence.
Not to be confused with James Cameron’s Avatar (lest the wrath of the millions of fans across the globe be incurred), Avatar: the Last Airbender, is an unique animated series that captured the hearts of children, teens, and adults worldwide and grew into a cult phenomenon.
Avatar: The Last Airbender, or, A:TLA for short, was the kind of kid’s show that wasn’t really just “for kids”. It taught us valuable, difficult lessons about revenge, anger, pride, suffering, and friendship. It dealt with topics most adults shy away from adding into kids’ shows, like parental neglect and abuse, the devastating effects of war and death, the dark side of responsibility and pride, and even how to deal with your girlfriend turning into the moon (okay, maybe the last one was a bit silly. But we all feel for you, Sokka. That’s rough, buddy).
We love Avatar: The Last Airbender as much as you do. That’s why we’ve gone around and compiled a collection of all the best A:TLA-related t-shirts we love into one easy-to-find place. So, what nation best defines you? Are you Earth, Fire, Air, or Water? No matter which nation best suits your personality, or what your favorite A:TLA character is, we’ve got tees below that you’re sure to love. So check ’em out, and if you know of an awesome A:TLA tee and don’t see it here, go ahead and submit it so we can add it to our collection. We’re always looking to expand the collection!
