At the begining of the series Zuko is supost to be a villin, but i don't see it from where I stand Zuko just has a bad father that banished his wife& his son, it's almost as if he got his phone taken up(i mean he is just 13)until he can find the Avatar. I mean he's just trying to please his dad, realy what did he do wrong.
if you can tell me what he wrong ,please do.

First off, sure his motivation for hunting down the Avatar isn't necessarily bad. But that doesn't excuse the things he did in order to catch Aang. In the first episode he attacks a Water Tribe village and threatens to burn it down if Aang doesn't go with him. He also burns down the Kyoshi village trying to get to Aang. And there are many more destructive things he does in his quest to regain his honor. He has no respect for anyone or anything but his own quest. The other thing is that he doesn't care what will happen to Aang after he hands him over to his father. And he has little care for the war that's being fought all around him throughout the world.

Zuko is not exactly a nice person at the beginning of the series. He's selfish, obsessed, ruthless and consumed with rage. He's not wholly bad, he does care about his uncle and he isn't totally inured to the pain of others but most of the time he has blinkers on, so obsessed with his own path that he doesn't even notice the damage he leaves in his wake. He has to learn a lot and go through many travails, make a lot of mistakes before he becomes a good person. Which is what makes him a truly awesome character. The best characters have both light and dark inside of them, make mistakes- life changing mistakes- and learn from them.

And on a sidenote I think comparing Zuko's banishment from his home- it's illegal for him to set foot on Fire Nation soil- and brutal burning of his face and subsequent scarring to having his cellphone taken away is just weird. Banishment is not like being grounded. Having your father burn your face while you knelt before him is not like having your cellphone taken away. These things took away Zuko's childhood, damaged him mentally, emotionally and physically. It makes him a sympathetic character but it doesn't make his actions noble.

Zuko isn't a bad guy, he's just confused and angry and wondering why his life is so hard.he sees one hope and clings on to it desperately. He is obsessed with himself, but yet he cares about his uncle. His quest is hard.
