Disney Vs Non Disney Villains - Part Two
Early in life, the future firebending prodigy known as Azula exhibited tendencies on sadism and hatred, murdering servants and friends alike. Despite her status in the royal family, Azula couldn't keep her demons locked away forever. As she grew older, Azula's lies and deeds eventually caught up with her in the form of Admiral Zhao. Zhao blackmailed the princess into a sadistically lustful affair, from which Azula eventually tried to escape. One night, Azula sat alone at a Fire Nation tavern, where she met the woman who would one day become Shego. Something inside the two of them clicked, and the two young women shared a passionate night together. However, things would eventually sour between the two of them, as such a scandal threatened Azula's rise to the throne. Shego begged Azula to stay with her, but Azula refused, leading the two former lovers to hate one another....
His Majesty's Assassin
Learning of Ratcliffe's rise to power, Fire Lord Ozai decides to use his daughter's skills in his favor, and sends her on a mission. At the same time, Dr. Drakken and David Xanatos send their second in command, Shego, to research the Fire Nation's Navy movements. The two missions collide with one another, leading to mutual contempt. The two young women trade insults and threats, until Azula makes the first move. She blasts lightning at Shego, but fails to hit her. The two engage in a furious duel, each showing off her respective skills, until Shego finally sends Azula over the edge of her ship into the sea.
Furious after her defeat at Shego's hands, Azula works furiously to get back into her father's good graces. She infiltrates the Forbidden Mountain to steal the lamp of the mighty genie, Jafar. There, she encounters Ursula, the Sea Witch, guarding the lamp. The witch claims that she can easily defeat the princess, but Azula puts the witch to the test. Azula's firebending proves a match for Ursula's magic, and Azula easliy controls the battlefield with her superior agility and speed, running rings around the corpulant witch. Azula finally defeats Ursula with a blast of lightning and steals Jafar's magic lamp, leaving the sea witch defeated and empty handed. With Jafar's lamp now in possession of the Fire Nation, Azula delivers the lamp to her father, greatly amplifying his power.
The Battle of Peru
Desiring to extend the Fire Nation's power, Azula personally leads an assault on Peru, the home base of the sorceress, Yzma. The Fire Nation's military easily takes down Yzma's forces. Azula chases Yzma as the cowardly sorceress attempts to escape through the chutes of the city. Megavolt tries to intervene, but Azula easliy defeats him. Unfortunately for Azula, the distraction allows Yzma time to escape.
The Genie and Other Plans
Jafar visits Azula in her chambers one evening, advising her to take control of the war during her father's abscence. The next day, Azula attends the Lizard Men Games, killing the Lizard King in mortal combat as Ruber's former war councel look on. She then claims control of the lizard army.
Azula pays a visit to Kent Mansley's super prison and elects a new prison warden, much to the chagrin of Dr. Robotnik and Bishop. Due to her growing power, Xanatos and the Illuminati decide that Azula is a menace to their plans and wish to have her dealt with.
A Deadly Rematch
Dr. Drakken, Shego and their allies invade the Fire Nation Capital during while Ozai is abroad conquering. Azula rides into battle, attempting to goad Shego into a fight, but Shego decides to watch instead. But Azula, refusing to take no for an answer, attacks Drakken, forcing him to retreat and Shego into battle. Azula is ready, blasting Shego at point blank range with lightning, causing Shego to explode. At this, Drakken and the rest of his forces flee.
Fire Lord Azula
After Ozai's death at the hands on Shan Yu, Azula claims the throne. In return for his services, Jafar demands his freedom, only for Azula to reject his offer and become his new master, telling the genie that she has manipulated him all along. In her increasing paranoia, he then decides to banish the entire war council, having grown tired of them. Only Jafar remains.
On the day of the official corronation, Jafar interrupts the ceremony. The genie has grown tired of serving Azula and is ready to end his servitude. Azula attacks first, taking down Iago; she then attacks Jafar directly, but Jafar takes the fight lightly, making a joke of the attack. He then fires dark magic from his eyes, magic Azula dodges. As she continues to evade his devistating power, he gets lucky and knocks Azula off her perch. As she falls, Jafar creates giant, fiery chasms in which he hopes the princess will fall. But Azula propels herself through the air with her firebending and grabs onto the cliffside. She then quickly punches Jafar's exposed lamp into the molten lava below. With his lamp destroyed, the genie explodes.
Losing the Throne
Azula's success does not last. After Jafar's defeat, Shan Yu and his armies invade. The Hun leader confronts Azula,and demands that she bow down to him. She refuses, using her fire to fly away before Shan Yu can stop her.
An Unholy Alliance

Disney Vs Non Disney Villains - Part Three
Reuniting With Old Allies
As the new war begins, Azula joins Ruber and Rasputin in taking back Camelot. There, the three of them are joined by one of Ruber's old council members, Lord Maliss, as they prepare to take back the throne. To secure her power, Azula begins tying up loose ends, starting by hiring one of her few remaining loyalists, a skilled and ruthless Fire Nation Warden, to capture her old foe Dr. Drakken. Unfortunately, the warden fails in his task.
Azula and her allies are soon faced with new threats, as Azula's old enemy, Ursula, sends the Cyclops to attack Camelot in hopes of taking out Ruber. Azula steps in to face him alongside Ruber, and the two begin working together to take him down. After Ruber's first attempt at attacking the Cyclops with his griffon fails, Azula challenges him, drawing his attention away from her ally. The Cyclops attempts to crush Azula under his foot, only for the princess to dodge the attack. Azula then wounds the Cyclops with a blast of fire, leaving an opening for Ruber to knock him off balance with a punch, sending him falling to his doom.
Tension Within The Ranks
With the threat dealt with, Azula attends a meeting with the rest of Ruber's allies to discuss their their unstable alliance and rebuilding their power base. When Rasputin states that the throne has been lost and their armies are scattered, Azula points out that their army is non-existent, stating that with Shan Yu occupying the Fire Nation and the new king of England, Amon, hunting down benders, she has barely a hundred fighters left. Azula then comments that Ruber's henchmen leave a lot to be desired. Ruber then sarcastically asks if his invincible metal men do not reach Azula's high standards, to which Azula tersely replies that they don't. Ruber then warns Azula that she is grating on his last nerve. Their argument is broken up by Maliss, who claims that they should not fight among themselves, as they have enough enemies as it is, his sister, Queen Grimhilde, chief among them. Azula listens as Rasputin and Maliss argue over whether Grimhilde poses a credible threat to them, before revealing that she has summoned an old acquaintance in hopes of procuring them a navy. This ally is revealed to be none other than Admiral Zhao, who states that he doesn't think much of Azula's company, but speculates that she is likely more comfortable among these renegades than at her father's court. Angered by Zhao's insolence, Azula chastises him for speaking to her in that manner, as she is still the Fire Lord. With a sarcastic apology, Zhao reveals that he has only come to sign his resignation, stating that he will not serve the coward who would murder her own father. Shocked and furious that Zhao has figured out the truth, Azula attempts to deny it, only for Zhao to reveal that he knows all about her deal with Jafar. He then comments that she is both a kin slayer and a king slayer, citing it as quite an accomplishment. Azula then orders him to get out of her sight, which Zhao gladly does, as Ruber sarcastically states that Azula is quite a people person.
Later, Azula discovers that Maliss has fallen by the hand of his sister, and informs Ruber, only to find that the knight doesn't even remember who Maliss is. The two then argue over which of Ruber's old council members was which, with Azula stating that Maliss was the one with green skin, although Ruber believes that to be Darkheart. When Azula claims that Darkheart was the wizard who looked like Jafar, Ruber corrects her, stating that that was the Wizard Of Wonderland. Exasperated, Azula asks which of them was the redhead in the track suit, at which point Ruber loses interest in the conversation.

Under Control... or Not
Princess Azula presides over a celebration of Fire Nation victory and prosperity, only for the festivites to be interrupted by Amon. Amon begins preaching a message of liberty for non-benders, enraging Azula. She tries to strike down the Equalist with her firebending, but he dodges all her moves. She thus moves in, hoping to best Amon in physical combat, but the far older and more skilled Amon knocks her aside. When Amon moves to escape, Azula uses her firebending to pursue. However, Amon's gliders prove far more resilient than her firebending streams; while Amon is able to escape, Azula falls into the water, disgraced.
After some rest and recovery, Azula decides to scout for Amon. But, instead of finding him, she encounters a strange armored man called Nox. He wants to know how Firebending works, so Azula spurns him and mocks his attempts at knowledge. This only infuriates Nox, who tries to cut Azula down with a sword. Azula, being more nimble, ducks under the blade and uses her Firebending to repulse her foe. When Nox employs some clever damage absorption techniques, Azula musters all her energy and destroys the entire rampart. Azula is just about to strike down her foe when he magically stops time. Azula is helpless as Nox takes up his sword and prepares to cut her down. At the last second, Azula unleashes all her fiery might and blasts Nox to the ground. Realizing she cannot fight an opponent who can stop time, Azula flees, leaving behind a scorched Nox.
Azula asks Chase Young to help her in her battles; he acquiesces, thinking he has much to gain from the alliance. Azula then re-convenes with her father, who has joined forces with the pharaoh, Rameses. Both Azula and Ozai mock the hyper-traditionalist, but the pharaoh soon proves his mettle by increasing the Fire Nation's workload and brandishing his One Ring of Power.
Burn Them to the Ground
Princess Azula accompanies her father in his quest to destroy the Ice Nation. The two make their way to the main chamber of Nekron, the ruler of the Ice Nation, and his wife, the Snow Queen. The Snow Queen immediately attacks Azula with some magic from her staff, but Azula dodges. She then kicks the Snow Queen's staff away. Azula prepares to blast the Snow Queen away, dodging a blast of ice in the process, but the Snow Queen's attack ends up destabilizing a pillar in the fortress; Azula melts the ice in order to avoid being crushed. After blocking yet another magical blast, Azula finds herself on the ground, as the Snow Queen sweeps her legs. Azula gets up, noticing a mysterious potion hanging on the wall. She frees it, causing the glass to break. Doing so summons a massive ice pterosaur that freezes the Snow Queen in place instantly.
Azula turns to Nekron, witnessing the ruler of the Ice Nation holding her father in place with telekinesis. She thus summons her ability to control lightning to send a massive jolt to Nekron's heart. As the king flounders, Azula prepares another blast and hits Nekron again, reducing him to a charred corpse. Suddenly, King Haggard and Queen Juliana, two other Ice Nation leaders, burst into the room. Haggard, seeing his son's dead body, charges at Azula; Azula quickly burns him alive. In the meantime, Ozai melts Nekron's fortress, giving Azula the opportunity to fly away.

An Alien Invasion?
While patrolling an area of the Fire Nation, Azula spots a strange alien establishing a base there. Investigating further, Azula discovers that the intruder is a Gem named Peridot, who is hoping to take control of the area for her masters. Determined to nip this invasion in the bud, Azula confronts Peridot and threatens her. Not wanting to risk facing Azula head on, Peridot attempts to retreat, but Azula refuses to let her escape so easily. As Peridot tries to escape by running up a canyon wall, Azula blasts a piece of debris with lightning, causing it to fall on top of Peridot and send her plummeting to the ground. However, Peridot survives the attack and attempts to make a run for it. As Azula continues to pursue her doggedly, Peridot transforms her hand into helicopter blades, allowing her to fly away and escape. However, Azula is unconcerned, certain that Peridot and her allies would return, and that she would have a chance to crush them then. Azula then reports the encounter to her father, Fire Lord Ozai, who is worried about the possible threat Peridot and whoever she was working for could pose to them.
An Unusual New Ally
As Azula and Ozai make plans for the war, they are surprised by the arrival of Aku, a demon that Ozai had previously awakened. Believing the demon to have come to kill them, Azula is initially hostile, but calms down when Aku explains his real reason for being there. Aku then offers an official alliance between himself and the Fire Nation. Realizing the usefulness of having a powerful being like Aku on their side, especially given the recent attacks they had faced, the two accepted the demon's offer, much to Aku's delight.
