Does anyone know the origin of The Rat King because I've always wondered about this.

He originally appeared in the Mirage b/w comics. It was in the mini run call the "Tales of the TMNT", kinda during the time when they were younger.
I forget what made the Rat King who he was, but he was this crazy human who lived in an abandoned warehouse, and of course, befriended the rats.
I need to reread that comic when I get home before I get any further. But when the cartoon introduced him, I think they built more into his character to make him even more memorable. :evilgrin:

Well, I got this particular comic from ebay. Just do a search for Ninja Turtle comics, and then look through the hits that come up. :smile:
Some comic stores might also have em in the back issue boxes, if they happened to carry any of the old Mirages.

Cool. As i am sure everyone knows, i like young TMNT stuff. Stories, pics, anything.

hehe... you'll prolly like the Ratking tale. Mike nearly gets 'eaten' by him. ;p
The Tales of the TMNT also introduce Leatherhead and Lord Savanti. There's also another one you'll really like, Machias, where Splinter helps this Japanese guy defeat a demon in his past.

BTW.. the RatKing one is Tales #4. Not sure how many issues total are in the TMNT tales run though.
