I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, so I apologize if it's not.
I know that Energybending has the ability to take away a bender's ability, but isn't there more? Like say, being as that it is bending the energy within ourselves, wouldn't an energybender be able to perhaps enhance their own physical abilities such as strength, speed, and even durability? And also, would they be able to heal?
I kind of see it like an old anime called Hokuto No Ken, where the main hero uses a martial art called Hokuto Shinken which allows him to control the energy within himself, making himself more power and able to destroy or heal others.
What does anyone else think?
