|The bad guy is a leader of an anti-bender gang called the "equalists". He wears a mask because a fire bender destroyed his face when he was younger... Boline (the fire ferret younger brother guy) got kidnapped by this gang, and Korra goes with Macco to try to get him back... |
This bad guy, named "Aman" holds a conference where he claims that he has discovered the ability to permanently remove people's bending powers. After the council finds out about this, they pressure Korra into joining the task force to fight against Aman, but she's secretly very afraid and doesn't think she's ready..
Aman captures Korra, but doesn't take her powers away yet because his plan involves the avatar being the last one to lose her powers.
