I vote for Tarakudo. He's the composed one and as level-headed as a warlord should be: more likely to use subtlety than the others.
Yeah, and it's also possible that while humans couldn't openly resist the demons, some people had some secret hope in the form of tales of a savior that could rival the demons' power. They wouldn't openly discuss the subject, but still cherish it in very Private moments so that they could live their days somewhat.
Sorry for the delay, been busy. No, I haven't seen Xiaolin, so there's no point to talk to me about it.
It was in my country - Finland - Nelonen (Channel Four).
Under forced circumstances, of course. One last chance to settle the score between them. Maybe Valmont has a magical weapon that he believes can help him get his revenge.
I couldn't have explained it any better. :)
At least a bit of blood shown, a bit less aversion of the words "death" and "killing", once or twice the sound of bones cracking and milder cussing. All of those examples should be included to the few more serious moments to empathize how serious the situation has become.
I meant that the Book of Ages would reverse the roles. The perpetrator would be a Joker-like villain who likes to spread chaos just for the hell of it.
Well, I won't take a stance on that idea. Instead, I present this idea: Jade is brought in a rewritten mirror-world where all the characters' morality is reversed.
- Section 13 is a competent government-supported terrorist syndicate dedicated to keep the rest of the Earth under USA's rule.
-The Dark Hand is an underground resistance movement working against Section 13, albeit with little to no results. Valmont is using his money on genuine charity. The Enforcers trio are more or less the same as before. Tohru is a former member who betrayed them to Section 13 for not paying what he thought he deserved (so he started out good, but was corrupted). Hak Foo is an honorable wandering martial artist who often helps the Dark Hand.
- Jackie Chan is a mercenary acheologist constantly hired by Section 13, enjoying fighting like his canonical Yang side.
- Uncle is an amoral and sneaky antique salesman who acts much like his evil counterpart Daolon Wong.
- Daolon Wong leads an organization that operates from the shadows in order to preserve the world's balance.
- Ben Shui Monks actively try to upset the balance between good and evil in favor of the latter.
- The eight Demon Sorcerers are benevolent creatures who were sealed out of resentment and prejudices. Now they're trying to free and bring the world back in order.
- Tarakudo and the Shadowkhan are honorable, yet suffer in a similar way to the Demon Sorcerers.
- Jade herself is a developing psychopath who's vices exaggerated versions of canonical Jade's vices.
In an effort to restore the timeline (again), Jade teams up with people she has known as enemies.
Well, for one thing, it requires a guardian. It's just so neglectful to leave such a powerful object without protection, given how easily Shendu reached it. There weren't even traps on the path there.
Have you read The Ultimate Evil of DONOVAN94 ? In it, one of the OCs is a guardian in the form of an old aboriginal shaman. He tests pilgrims with three tests before letting them reach the Book. Those who would use the Book for ill purposes he erases from existence.
It's rather good. :)
A decent idea you have there. Also, if Drago is included, they should give his backstory, the present version of him instead of/in addition to the future version and introduce his mother.
But now I have to go to sleep. See ya again. :)
Indeed. I for one, would like if the series became a bit more mature, Jade would become the Queen of the Shadowkhan again during Season 4, there were more females in the main cast (both sides of the morality specturm)...
Oh yeah (the former choice, I mean). I don't think a standard use of the regular casts' older versions or the good guy versions of the Enforcers would be that appealing to the crowd.
Probably not by our standards, but I'm positive there's something. Remember Shendu's little act of mercy towards his son in the finale and how Bai Tza was angry with Shendu for failing to keep their siblings free, saying that she should deal with him on their behalf. Plus, there's Tarakudo's gentleman attitude and the loyalty of his Generals (as far as we've been shown), especially Ikazuki's. There's no real standard pillar for good and evil. The heroism of the Chans is just human goodness.
Now I got a new idea: have the Tiger Talisman's power re-appear (maybe not exactly the same, but similar in some form, like a magical coin that separates by reflection). I like Jackie best when he's divided into Tiger and Pussycat, so I'd like them to appear again. Not only that, but Jade and Uncle should also be finally divided into their Yins and Yangs, so that we can see how their individual traits show in their two halves. I can just imagine the consequences! :D Of course, one of the recurring villains should also be divided. Maybe Shendu himself?

Well, we'd need a different kind of a genie (other than from a magic lamp), for starters.
