Is anyone else slightly annoyed that Toph is referring to Lao in the formal "Father" as opposed to the more affectionate term "Dad" as she always did? I just don't think Toph would ever start getting "formal" with her parents like that. Also in the preview pages Lao states that he has no family, but what happened to Toph's mother then? Did they separate?

^It makes sense actually. As you said, "Father" is more formal. "Dad" is more affectionate. With the relationship they have now (basically none), "father" is the more appropriate term to use. It kinda conveys how they are distant from each other.

Further evidence that Lao is cutting them off to protect them from something.

He probably has Mecha Godzilla in a hidden underground cavern, and that's what the gAang discover when they journey to the basement as depicted on the cover. Grin

Yeah but why is he trying to get the Avatar out too ? Aang could help him deal with this.

No, Aang is an Air Nomad so nobody in the current world thinks he's any good at anything, remember? Tongue

"Yeah."

To be fair, the Hei Bai situation wasn't resolved in the most timely manner. Cheesy

What do you guys think of Satoru?? I honestly don't like the guy that much for some reason. I mean if this is who they are lumping Toph with, just wow...words can't even describe.

But let me end by saying what I came to this thread to say...Bro, do you even Rift!?

Satoru is just a vauge possible answer to the question "Who is Lin's father?". That said, Sifu Kisu knows the answer to the million dollar question and has created a routine for Lin's father. Now unless Satoru has some hidden ninja skills, it is unlikely that he is the correct answer to the question. Now, if the previews and speculation regarding this Friday are correct, there will be another million dollar paternity question regarding Toph and her relationships.

I didn't hear that about Sifu Kisu. Do you have a link?

Also, I saw Part 2 for sale in my local comic shop yesterday. I didn't buy it, though.

Not to mention the father of Suyin, Toph's second daughter and Lin's half-sister, and before anyone says its spoilers, this information  was  officially released on  twitter earlier.

I hate all the ATLA comics except for The Rift, which I merely find boring and forgettable. I only buy them to keep up with continuity details, and so wait for discounts or coupons.

That is technically an improvement. At this rate you might like the comics that comes out two years from now. Wink

Avatar Epsilon speaketh true! I wasn't a huge fan of the comics, but it definitely seems like the rift is a step up from the previous ones. Not that poor quality ever kept me from reading any of them of course. :3

It is scattered around the web (I saw it in the fandom wilds of Tumblr) but this seems to be the original source:

I've read the Rift part two. I have a few complaints. Basically the same I had with the last two trilogies. But I'd rather not focus on them. Gene gets carried away in his humor, he needs to figure out the balance between it and serious scenes. If he can do that, I think the comics and the characters would be more in-character with what Atla established.

Keep spoilers out of the speculation thread! You could have PMed me to open up The Rift Part 2 early.
