But at the same time she was an earthbender.
I agree Iroh and tman, it's just hot earth; that's what lava is. But when it is transformed into lava, could is become unbendable by earthbenders and bendable by firebenders? That's my guess. I would agree with y'all that technically earthbenders are SUPPOSED to be the ones bending it, but I think that the firebenders are the ones who can in the series's reality. And here's why:
Really there is no definite answer. I'm gonna say that despite the chemical makeup of lava, it is able to be bent by firebenders. And that's only because of this:
Earth Kingdom Avatar (Kyoshi) bends her natural element. (Earth, in the form of carved rock.)
Water Tribe Avatar (Kuruk) bends his natural element. (Water, in the form of an ocean wave.)
Air Nomad Avatar (Yangchen) bends her natural element. (Air, just air.)
Fire Nation Avatar (Before Yangchen) bends his natural element. (Fire, in the form of lava.)
Now why on earth would Mike and Bryan make that last cut a Fire Nation Avatar, dressed in red, with a red color scheme, following the other three types of bending, yet him still be 'earthbending' this lava? That's why I think it's firebending.
