I'm putting this in a separate thread from the Amon one because I haven't seen the idea yet and I would really like to be able to go back and see what people think of it instead of digging through a variety of topics. If I shouldn't, feel free to cut and paste this post into the Amon thread.
Has anyone considered that perhaps Sokka might be Amon's father?

Interesting theory. We haven't heard much about Sokka's legacy yet... and Amon is using advanced technology to take down benders. Maybe he inherited his father's ingenuity and engineering abilities and designed those power gloves/assorted anti-bending technologies himself. He would also have the chance to learn chi blocking techniques from his mother (assuming that Sokka married Suki), and the other warriors.
It's not likely at all, but it's interesting to think about. I get the distinct notion that Amon is lying about his origins, I mean firebenders seem to be responsible for a lot of parent murdering but there has to be more to the story that that.
Seconding what has already been said above, I think it would be very difficult for Amon to conceal his identity from Tenzin and Lin if he were one of the Gaang's kids. It also doesn't seem likely that Aang's nephew would have such a vendetta against the Avatar. It would certainly be angsty, though!
Or...maybe grown up ebil Teo! Who made himself a mechanical device of some kind that allowed him to walk and that's how he could still do so when he was bloodbended 'cos it was the device that did the walking!

Maybe when azula killed aang when he was in the avatar state a new avatar was born with only airbending and the spiritual side of the avatar's powers. Then when Aang was brought back to life by Katara and died for real of old age Korra was born with only water, earth and fire bending. This would explain why she cant air bend or connect to her past lives the way Aang connected to Avatar Roku. This would also explain why Amon looked like airbended in episode 10 and why he can resist blood bending and take away people's bending like the avatar.
