I even like Amon in some special way :/

I do too. He's a complete badass. Besides, the good guys in this series aren't as likeable as the last. Even their bending is uncreative when compared to Aang, Zuko, or Toph.

I'd like to think its because, the main characters from TLAB were forced to become awesome benders by their circumstances. Think about it:

Aang, Katara,Toph, etc. are up against a massive, imperial war-machine hunting them non-stop. They have only themselves (and the occasional helpful local village) to rely upon. The HAD to become masters in order to survive. The near constant battles helped with that too.

Korra, Mako, and Bolin are in a very TWO-sided conflict between fairly equal (no pun intended) opponents; benders and the Equalists. Korra has the White Lotuses, Lin, and Tenzin backing her up a lot, and their sheer mastery of bending over-shadows her's.

In sumation, I apologize for the length of this comment, and state that Team Korra is simply not pushed enough by the circumstances to be as awesome as Team Aang.

I think there are other reasons as well but that would definately be the main one.

I just feel like they're straight up weaker. When Korra got tied up I thought "Seriously? Ropes? That's how you restrain the AVATAR?" But they apparently worked fine. Aang, Roku, and Toph were all tied up and **** all the time in TLA, held em for all of like 10 minutes. She coulda just breathed fire on the ropes or something and got out.

The only people doing cool **** are the sub characters (Tarrlok shooting ice daggers out of a wall of water, even though toph did that first with a rock wall, Lin Beifong basically being Spiderman, Tenzin in general), though I will hand Mako some badass points for the car chase in ep 8. I hope they get some training or something over the coming seasons because they all need an upgrade.

I give Mako props for lightning and being able to do it as a JOB. Being able to shoot lightning all day in the power plant would take amazing endurance. But even his bending compared to Zuko's is uncreative. Zuko would do blades and whips out of fire and use it conjunction with weapons. Mako shoot bursts.
Yeah, I agree they all need upgrades. But the bending as a whole will improve after Korra goes all Avatar state on Amon's ass.

I will agree about Tenzin. In fact, to become a master airbender and get the tattoo, you have to actually INVENT a technique, and I'm assuming Tenzin's was the whole air-monocycle thing he did in battle with the Equalist mechs since it was never seen in the old series. I meant Korra's, Mako's, and Bolin's. The ones we see bend most often. Also Tenzin has a badass glider. It's different from Aang's.

Zuko would do jets and make knives and whips out of fire and stuff. And he would use bending in conjunction with weapons. Mako shoots bursts and that's about it.

Airbenders are always creative. They have to be. It's part of the style. And Korra has a few good moves but she does them again and again and again and again. You have four ******* amazing moves but if you only know four that's kinda sad. She also alternates between bending styles and doesn't blend them as well as Aang did.

All the bending in the show will improve after she goes all Avatar state on Amon's ass.

I think Amon if badass. And the fact that he spared Korra? Kinda like a Joker/Batman relationship. What would they do without the other?

Korra: **** Mako
Amon: I dunno, eat pudding or something.

Many often prefer evil characters I like him too ;)
But that does not mean that I don't like benders or good characters
