Your protagonist after she just roundhoused a woman into a LIVE electrical tower during a thunder storm. This is the smile made after the villain’s sidekick (who literally had nothing to do with any of the evildoings in the movie) was electricuted and the tower proceeded to collapse on her, but before the audience sees that the aforementioned rival has survived to be arrested with her boss.
Wasn’t she originally scripted to have killed them but then they decided to just throw them in jail for Season Three?
This was the season 3 finale. It was also supposed to be the grand finale. And yes, it was originally written that she just killed Shego.
Roger that, bobsled (I thought this was the movie). Pretty sure Shego had crossed some sort of line and threatened her family here, and that was the “justification.”
Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked and Aang decided that genocide was still no justification for killing people and basically cast a GIANT spotlight on TV protagonists for years.
But I can still picture Korra making this face.
It is the movie. Also the season 3/original grand finale.
Just watched it in 3 separate languages, mi amigo. Nope.the scene played as follows.
"Know what I really hate?"
"…That your date melted?" *assumes regular fight stance thinking this is standard issue witty banter*
"Nah. You." *uses supersuit to kick into tower*
Not a stretch to see Korra wearing this expression. Korra has a darkness that they’ve danced around. Tarrlok only resorted to Bloodbending because he was legitimately and with good reason terrified that Korra wasn’t going to stop. She threatened that judge right in his own court assembly. And then also with a giant monster dog. If she had dealt with Ozai at the *grabs beard* scene she’d have probably just taken his head off right then and there. It’s fascinating though, because up until this point right here Kim Possible was ALWAYS played as a goody-two-shoes with a tight moral compass (lying made her more nervous than fighting Shego I’d like to point out).
And suddenly here she is standing on the moral event horizon and entirely fine with what she’s just done. Had it been DNAmy or Camille Leone or Monkey Fist or Drakken or Bonnie or anybody else in the rogue’s gallery, they would have absolutely without any shadow of doubt removed from that scene in a body bag. And at that moment she had no way on earth of knowing Shego was walking away from it with little more than sore muscles and scorched hair (because originally she didn’t). She had just killed her rival and then she smiled.
I really loved that teaser of darkness in Kim. For want of a nail she could have become a supervillain. Because she has that bloodlust on a level no other villain in that show had with the possible exception of Warmonga and her battlemate.
That could’ve been an explored point in the fourth season. Sadly, we didn’t get such an episode in the KP canon.
And then we have Ron who was in ‘evil mode’ for (as I recall) 2 episodes at least and it was stated that he was more dangerous than any of KP villains; and of course, the S4 grand finale with him actually killing two Big Bads. Honestly, just imagine what would’ve happened to the world if both Kim and Ron became villains.
Even Shego, of all people, acknowledged that Ron has a lot of villainous potential.
Yes, and the fact that Zorpox was the first person to scare her says a lot. I also like how completely dumbfounded she was watching Ron beating the crap out of Warhok and Warmonga. Maybe she thought of the consequences which would take place if she or Drakken pissed him off. :P
