At the end of Book 2 in the original series, Aang was killed by a lightning strike from Azula which caused Amon to be born as the new avatar since Aang died. However, Katara revived Aang with the water from the Spirit Oasis and he was all good as new. This caused Amon to lose his ability to bend the elements, but he was still connected and had the spiritual side that Korra does not. This explains why Korra does not get the spiritual side of being an avatar and how Amon actually was able to commune with the spirits to learn energybending
He got shot during the Avatar state. All the avatars would have just died off. Other words, he wouldn't had a chance to be born that way.
If the Avatar were to be killed while in the Avatar State, every Avatar would die with him/her. This would break the cycle permanently and the Avatar would cease to exist.

You are thinking too short term anyway. Just because they haven't shown it yet, doesn't mean she can't.
Pretty sure it's chi blocking. The creators of the series said chi blocking has a history that's been forgotten. I wouldn't be surprised if Amon had came across this ancient history in his quest for vengeance.

oh and Bolin > Sokka
What? Just no...

I'm going to watch episode 4 now. Do not spoil it for me or I'll bend your face in.

Why'd Korra have that random flashback?

Amon cannot energybend. Unless the creators want a giant RETCON.

My theory is that:
Amon doesn't actually have the ability to energybend. In reality, it's an extremely advanced form of chi blocking that can be broken, with extremely intensive healing.
I didn't think about it that way until now.

Also I saw episode 4 yesterday and was happy to see the direction the show is going in.
On a side-note, Amon is slowly becoming one of my favorite villains.

I honestly thought the story would follow something like the game with a character like Lian and machines.

At any rate couldn't Amon possibly be Mako's and Bolin's Dad since their parents were said to be killed by a firebender. It is a twist but honestly he might of figured his sons were killed and walked away wounded. He meet a spirit who hated or disliked the Avatar or the methods used by the Avatar and told him chi blocking. Of course he might be a bender and hides it for obvious reasons.

Amon claims the spirits picked him and energy bending would take more time with a light show. If you watch when he takes the first guys bending it makes it weaker little by little so chi blocking makes more sense then energy bending as said above.

Except that
Amon said his parents were killed by a firebender on their farm growing, as restated up above. so that theory wouldnt check out

Man. You guys read way more into this show than I do. I just think Amon is a new character who happens to be a serious asshole. That's it.

You're forgetting the possibility that, you know, Amon might have just made that tragic story up to win supporters. Still, though, I agree that it probably isn't Bolin and Mako's father; that would be way too soap opera-y a twist, the writers behind the show are better than that.

It's still too early to say anything conclusive yet; we're just going to have to wait until they start dropping more clues around Amon's identity.

He's obviously Fire Lord Ozai's secret son who gained the powers as a result of his father's encounter with Aang.

Is it too early to discount Time Lord as a possibility?

Well we never learn what happens to Zuko's mother, so it's reasonable to say that she gets impregnated by Ozai again and produces the Anti-Christ, aka Amon.

Again, though? I mean, if she was even alive by the end, would Zuko really hand her back to Ozai (who's locked up in jail)? That would be the worst, most awkward family reunion ever.

OKAY! my theory of amon's family
Since Iroh could see and commune with the spirits of the spirit world(mentioned in Original Series) its possible that...

Iroh could be Amon's (great?)grandfather,. after all. since Iroh was the first non-avatar to go into the spirit world,

maybe he passed on the ability to speak with Said spirits if he got re-married to a non-bender and had a non-bender child?
and if said child married a non-bender also then the rest of the family tree would be 100% Non-bender and since amon was in a family of Non-benders it add's up.

I don't think so, I thought Iroh lost his only son in the Fire Nation invasion or something and didn't have any children after that. Plus almost anyone of his line would probably be given significant social status, certainly not the "lowly farmers" Amon talked about. Considering everybody else's descendants have had rather important social positions (Tenzin is on the city council, Befong is head of the city police, Katara is some bigwig with the Water Tribe, and we don't know of any possible descendents for Zuko or Sokka), it'd seem odd that Iroh, who almost became a martyr defending the Avatar and bringing peace to the world, would not have children of significant status.

I'm going with the "advanced form of chi blocking" theory.

Also, what's up with Korra's lack of an Avatar Mode? Like there's plenty of times she's been in deep shit that Aang would have gone postal in (like her confrontation with Amon in the last episode) but she doesn't go berserk and just lay waste to the fools. I mean she's a lot less cautious and leaps before thinking compared to Aang, so you'd think that she would be using/triggering the Avatar Mode more than Aang, who was very resistant to it.

Actually it's known that Zuko's daughter is the new Fire Lord and he is traveling the world as an ambassador of peace or something.

probably coz she got scared. maybe proper mental state required. she got a glimpse of aang though. also it was said she sucked/lacked in the spiritual side of being an avatar.
