The idea of this series was drawn off in an innovative way; in 2001; where Konietzko made an old sketch of a balding, middle-aged man and visualized the man as a child which portrays the lead character and showed to DiMartino and decided to make it happen.

In 2004; the series was launched to the world through publishing a teaser at Comic-Con and the debut was made on 21st February 2005 and ended on 19th July 2008.

In a war-torn world of basic magic, a young boy reawakens to try a dangerous mysterious journey to fulfil his fate as the avatar and give rise to peace to the world. The world is divided into four elemental nations: the northern- southern water tribes, the earth kingdom, the fire nation and the air nomads. Aang is the existing avatar and last survivor along with his friends Sokka, Katara and Toph protect the world from war.
