Sozin's Comet, Part 4: Avatar Aang



Sokka's boomerang was given to him by his father Hakoda before he left to fight in the Hundred Year War with the warriors of the Southern Water Tribe. It was one of Sokka's most prized possessions, and his trademark item. Sokka once lost his boomerang and stated that it was like "losing a part of himself". He ended up getting it back, exclaiming "Boomerang! You do always come back!" after Yeh-Lu, the warrior that had found his boomerang, was defeated. Sokka used his boomerang to defeat Combustion Man when no other member of the group could get close enough to him. The group was hiding behind a pylon, when Sokka threw his boomerang, which hit Combustion Man on his tattoo in the middle of his forehead. This blow stunned the assassin, and blocked his flow of chi to his third eye. When Combustion man tried to firebend again, he blew himself up due to his blocked chi energy.

Unfortunately, he lost his boomerang and his sword while knocking out two firebenders during Sozin's Comet. Even though he lost his boomerang, he saved his and Toph's life. A year later, Sokka had obtained a similar, if not the same boomerang. He used it in order to incapacitate an annoying demonstrator outside Yu Dao.

Forty-two-years prior to Avatar Korra's arrival in Republic City, Sokka brought up his boomerang during Yakone's trial at City Hall, in which he referred to as his "trusty boomerang", and told the story of how he used it to defeat Combustion Man.
