Firebending was only impossible for 8 minutes. He probably broke the cage right before the eclipse started.

He's a really good firebender. With his newfound physique, he could probably burn through it in under a minute.

That Iroh broke out on the Day of Black Sun and firebending shouldn't work?

Firebending STILL work but it was extremely weak, nothing  more than a poof of fire for an average firebender. But Iroh s just that badass that he can still do lighting.

Not true. None of the soldiers (who would be considered average or better firebenders) were capable of producing ANY fire. Besides that, though, firebending is established to be influenced by the sun. A solar eclipse would completely blot it out albeit for 8 minutes and depending on where you were in the world (for example, a partial solar eclipse certainly would not completely null firebending), but judging by the fact that NOBODY could create any fire, it is safe to assume that the moon's umbra was very large.

I thought Iroh broke out during the eclipse where fire benders lose their bending hence Iroh can't use his (Not that he needed it anyways.)
Still holy crap this is awesome. <3

The only thing that bothers me about this picture is the continuity. Iroh broke out of prison during the solar eclipse, which means all firebenders lost their bending. Iroh broke out of prison with brute strength and martial arts. That was the point of getting that buff, so he could be a one man army and bust out, having the physical advantage that the others didn't. Still an awesome picture, though.

I'd like to think that Iroh used his firebending at the moment right before the eclipse happened, perhaps weakening or breaking the cell. At that point the guards would notice and come rushing, trying to attack him only to find out their firebending suddenly doesn't work. Then he proceeds to kick ass.

That's a form of firebending. Just how bloodbending is a form of waterbending. Besides, he's using firebending to melt the bars, so it's a mute point.

:iconblue-thrush:
Blue-Thrush Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
Perhaps the source of his firebending (since the origins did not come for the sun, per se, but spoilers so I won't outright say it) allowed him to firebend despite the eclipse occurring?

:iconbrianshrode72:
brianshrode72 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
That is a huge stretch and I don't buy it. There's a reason they kept cutting to him working out and getting ripped over the course of "Sokka's Master." It was to make it so you weren't confused as hell when the guard says he busted himself out. "He was a one-man army," the guard said. That's because he was so physically strong he busted the bars and beat the ever living shit out of anyone and everyone in his path, without firebending. That's the whole point. When the firebending is all gone, and you have to go up in a fight, how are you going to have the advantage now? For Zuko speaking to Ozai, it was Zuko's broadswords. Ozai was powerless against them. For Azula, it was her wit, cunning, and manipulation. For Iroh, it was his physical brute strength.
