We go where no one goes.

Here’s something I haven’t seen mentioned before — look at Korra’s eyes.
No, really look at them.  The differences are honestly pretty subtle.  But, if you look closely at Book 2 and Book 4 Korra side by side, you’ll probably start to notice that there’s something different about them in the newest promotional image.
It took me a while to figure out what the difference was, but once I figured it out, it became a lot more obvious.  The proportions of Korra’s face are different.  Her eyes are set wider apart, and they’re smaller and a bit colder.  She looks hardened and less childlike; her face looks narrower and less rounded, too.
Bryke mentioned, back when they introduced Korra’s Book 2 outfit, that it was designed to look a bit “meaner” than her normal clothes.  I suspect that has a lot to do with why it’s back.  Her posture seems a bit less heroic, too — instead of her usual open confidence, she’s tense and guarded, looking ready to pounce without mercy.
I wonder whether the Korra we see in Book 4 might be lose some of the restraint she showed in Book 3 as she tries to differentiate herself from the (peaceful and diplomatic) Air Nation.  If the Air Nation is there to preserve stability, than maybe the purpose of the Avatar ought to be the disruption of unbalanced systems to foster controlled change.  Of course, that would require a pretty ruthless Avatar!
