Title text: Of all the nations, the armies of the ununoctium-benders are probably the least intimidating. The xenon-benders come close, but their flickery signs are at least effective for propaganda.
In the popular children's TV show Avatar: The Last Airbender, the four nations that inhabit the world can each control one of the four classical elements: water, fire, earth and air. One person, the avatar, can control all four elements and is markedly more powerful than any other character. Mendeleev is the creator of the modern periodic table, which categorizes the 118+ elements by their atomic masses.
Polonium gained a level of notoriety as the poison used to kill Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko.
The title text talks about power levels of the elements if each element had a controlling nation as per the TV show.
- [Aang the Avatar and Dmitri Mendeleev stand in opposition to each other. Aang wields all 4 classical elements: Water, Fire, Earth, and Air.]
- Aang: I'm the avatar, master of all 4 elements!
- Mendeleev: Really? I'm Mendeleev, master of all 118+.
- Mendeleev: That was polonium-bending. You probably didn't feel anything, but the symptoms of radiation poisoning will set in shortly.
