Is this Batman:TAS with Dick Grayson as Robin? Or is it the cartoonish designs and the Tim Drake/ Jason Todd hybrid replacement?.

We now know how Leatherhead will be followed up on and its not unexpected.

Also, its awesome to have a Christmas story other than Michelangelo micro issue as the only one. Sure, rhev2003 cartoon had an episode but the Michelangelo ussue was the basis of it.

Dick wore Tim's first of two Robin costumes in Batman:TAS as Robin and Tim wore red pants opposed to the dark green ones. The designs look like the original animated series not the WB! season as seen with Joker,Scarecrow, and Poison Ivy. It suggest Dick Grayson is Robin, but it could be a general depiction not a straight up Batman: TAS setting or Batman:TAS WB! season so it could have the Tim/Jason hybrid with the other elements of Dick's run.

Leatherhead always winds up joining the Mutanimals in other series but I'd like to see him wind up at odds with Hob here. Kind of telling though Slash quit the Mutanimals just recently...and now Leatherhead arrives. Can't have two very similar big reptile mutants with huge tempers on the same team...even though the Nick cartoon did it.

Utrommaniac
09-24-2016, 12:38 PM
It is interesting how different Slash and Leatherhead are with their violent outbursts. The biggest difference is that Leatherhead is more controlled than Slash, and never truly "loses it".

A fight between controlled Leatherhead and unchained Slash would be quite the situation to behold.

That might be because Bishop, Leatherhead, and Hob are all a lot more interesting than Dunn (at least so far), the woman inventor, and so forth.

Just like the Leatherhead/Utrom stuff was awesome when it was in the main ongoing. Although Splinter slowly going power crazy is awesome in the main ongoing.

I'm going to just call Dunn the "tea and a nap" villain; while important stuff is going on, he'll be an easy antagonist to go through before something gets splattered on the wall again.

Likely because of Ch'rell (at Krang's side???), Leatherhead again, Stockman, and Kitsune.

Well to be fair Dun can't possibly compare to popular TMNT villains like Shredder, Krang, Bishop, Hun, Baxter, Old Hob, Leatherhead, Rat King, Kitsune, various mutants, etc. in the first place.

I know its too early to say much about IDW's Dun since we're in the very early stages of his character, but there's not as much excitement as there is about the main TMNT villains.

That doesn't matter imo. I mean you just used put Hun on a different level when Hun and Dunn came out from the same series/time.

After seeing what an amazing character they have turned Rat King and Krang into, They just flat out dropped the ball with Dunn.
They could have done so much more with the character such make him a time traveler from the future that came back to kill the turtles... or something..... damn he is a generic villain if I ever saw one....

I almost want to think that Dunn is deliberately less exciting. He wouldn't stand a chance against the other villains, but he also wouldn't be much of a threat to them. But, we'll see what happens in the next few issues. I'm more interested in Honeycutt's repairs. Which makes me wonder how long Ma'riell was going to wait to have her meeting about releasing Ch'rell. Was she going to do it with Honeycutt around? Since the machinery was damaged, she'd have limited time, unless they're using less power with keeping Ch'rell in stasis. Moreover, would she want Honeycutt there to explain Krang's imprisonment, since he's technically the one that brought him in?

I wouldn't say so. Not every villain has to be the next big bad. Dun's purpose is not to be a big bad, but to be an antagonist at a time when the most interesting focus of the series is not the villain, but the growing divide between the Turtles and Splinter's leadership of the Foot.

Think about it analytically. If IDW WAS using a more compelling villain right now, it'd overshadow that Turtles/Splinter conflict and we'd all complain about it. Just like how Donatello's Metalhead crisis was completely overshadowed by the Vengeance storyline.

I think its kinda odd to use Dunn if he's not from the future or related to Casey. It seems like he's only here to be connected to Jammerhead/The Street Phantoms as another Fast Forward character. They could have used anyone else or an original character then.

I'm assuming that IDW first decided to use the Street Phantoms as the rival gang for the Foot, and then decided to pick a second Fast Forward character to lead the gang.

Slim pickings, man. Be grateful a nobody like Darius Dunn ever got a second chance.

The foot clan translate to "Le clan de la savate" in the 1990' tmnt movies and I think in almost everything that was translate regarding the franchise in those years (Shredder was also translate to "le déchiqueteur" in at least the first movie). Their introduction was kind of nostalgic, at least for french people in Quebec.

This french canadian dubbing is awful. :tmad: When they released the DVD in France, we had this dubbing instead of the original french dubbing. Probably because the original french dubbing was full of swearing, don't know why they translated the dialogues like that but it was fun. For example, when Casey called Raph a "freak" after their fight in Central Park, they translated it by a homophobic slur. Don't know what they thought at the time...:trolleye:

The Savate didn't suck necessarily. I feel of all the characters they never got proper exploration and were created to simply be fodder for The Foot to show how imitating the clan can be. They could have sucked if given more time,but being a new angle without any expectations I appreciated it.

Just like "City Fall" "Vengeance" was a let down. The Leatherhead mini arc was great! My wording of my previous statement was to definite/broad. "New Mutant Order" I did not car for. "Attack on Technodrome" was decent.

See I am the opposite "Hate" the fact that the turtles being divided right now is the main story.... I wish and think it should be the side story/ side plot. But its the main instead.
But Donnie as metal head as a side plot was great bc it kept the story from getting dull/bored.

Huh. I think we're exactly the opposite on this. I like having the Turtles divided as the main focus in "Chasing Phantoms", and I hated that Metalhead-Donatello was a side story in "Vengeance." He gets fixed off-screen and teleported back in to the Gauntlet showdown? Shouldn't Saki or Kitsune or somebody cried foul at the introduction of a "fifth" combatant on Team Hamato?

Yes and in that one issue. Dunn sucked donkey nuts :lol: his origin was so generic and out right terrible. I think the street phantoms are awesome.

Eh, I liked his origin. It was different than anything I've ever really seen before. And it's much more seamless for IDW than "Future Descendant of the O'Neils Comes Through Time to Wreak Havoc." :tlol:

As far as the Savate ninja goes....IDW screwed the pooch imo bc that could have turned into a great arc similar to "City at War"

Agreed, but... how many of us would be as antagonistic or apathetic towards "City Fall" if we hadn't been expecting an IDW take on "City at War"? Really, except for the title, there's nothing similar about the stories. If it was instead just some other title "Fallen Son" or "Darkness Falls", I think we'd be more okay with the story. (And if Leo had actually been allowed to kill, but that's on Nick, not IDW.)

Well Shredder's dead, so there's the first step. But The Foot would need to be split up into warring factions. We'll see what Karai has been up to in Japan...

Turtles need to be kind of directionless in life, too. Those are the main ingredients.

The focus of "City at War" was the Foot Clan crumbling into anarchy after Oroku Saki's (second) death, and how multiple factions were vying to take control. For the Hamato Clan, Splinter was questioning his entire life and absent from the Foot/Turtle conflict, while the four Turtles questioned their role in the Foot Clan's demise and the blood feud they had inherited.

So honestly, "Chasing Phantoms" has much more in common with "City at War" than "City Fall."

Thank you. I'd gathered as much from other adaptations, namely the 2003 and 2012 cartoons. Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything crucial.

The current status quo is very intriguing and full of potential. Even after the Phantoms are taken down, I expect to see other factions vying for power in the city and even Karai's return with some new agenda that brings her into conflict with Splinter. Multiple faction free-for-alls are always fun.

At the very least, Hob is still amassing power and pawns for the coming war he's been hinting at for a long while. That right there is a guarantee that the Phantoms won't be the only (and far from the last) obstacle to Splinter's rule.

These are exciting times!

I agree with CyberCubed the IDW Mirage Collection is a must read for any TMNT fan even if you are not a fan of comics in general.

The Mirage series is my favorite comic series and is probably my favorite interpretation of TMNT.

I agree with CyberCubed the IDW Mirage Collection is a must read for any TMNT fan even if you are not a fan of comics in general.

The Mirage series is my favorite comic series and is probably my favorite interpretation of TMNT.

most definitely!!
there have been comic series that i once loved, but grew away from over time.

but with Mirage vol. 1 , i think my appreciation for them has only grown stronger over time.
the re-read value is just amazing!!!

Protoceratops tend to remain small, so she's probably about a quarter of a way to her full size. I'm not sure the exact weight of growth has been determined.

I'm not really sure how they'll hide a protoceratops, so I ponder if it is better off for her sake to mutate. Good thing Sophie already designed a mutated form for her.

Pimp Raph, swaggering down the street with the two girls of IDW TMNT. Move over, Nick Donnie, Raph's a playa. :tcool: :trazz:

In all seriousness, though, I'm a little surprised Raph and Angel haven't already left to retrieve Alopex from Alaska.

Wait, what? A Turtle going out in public without a disguise and taking their pet dinosaur for a walk? Did I miss something? :teek:

IDW has been a little strange and "fast and loose" with mutants in public. :tlol:

It's great to see Mateus draw Pepperoni but I'll forever be filled with regret and sadness that I wasn't able to do this one and fulfill my lifelong dream of drawing a TMNT holiday issue. :tcry:

Yeah, in-universe, Old Hob, Bebop, and Rocksteady have probably been the worst offenders of strolling around nonchalantly, although Hob was only leading a rag-tag gang of ruffians and B&R were actually knocking over ATMs and stopping at diners and stuff. Those two are definitely the biggest attention-getters; Splinter and the Turtles and most of the Mutanimals have been pretty low-key

I wonder if IDW is going to explore that concept further as Agent Bishop and the EPF enter the main story, and we'll get more insight into what the public is thinking about all these mutants popping up all over the city

Also, Woody must be the most chill dude ever.
"Whoa, it's a turtle-man, I should see if he wants some pizza!"

The weirdest thing for me was how empty the streets of Manhattan were, in that one scene with Bebop and Rocksteady deciding to crash Hob's mutant party back in (I believe) #39.

I guess Woody was more like "Hey, business is business. Everyone's gotta eat!" :D

I am really hopeful that Bishop and the EPF will give IDW opportunity to finally address this issue. They started hinting at it with Detective Kara Lewis and her partner back in "Vengeance"... let's keep it building and explain some stuff, shall we!? :tgrin:

As long as nobody cancels Christmas, get back to TMNT December 2018 or 2019, y'hear? :twink:

Its weird that they're celebrating Christmas without going for Alopex first, but I guess in real life they needed to get the Christmas issue out in December obviously so we didn't have an extra month. Otherwise the Alopex issue probably would have come before it.

I agree, but whatever the outcome of Chasing Phantoms is (defecting from the Foot, etc), it most likely takes precedence over retrieving Alopex. And the Turtles probably won't be doing it for Splinter's benefit, either.

Safe to say that Harold is coming out of the Street Phantoms arch okay.

Given Mikey's previous history with cooking...they better take cover.
Also, the "White Gold Sugar". Isn't it usually White Gold Flour???

I think it's his version of Harold that makes me think he'd make a very fine mutant badger :P . I'm also pretty sure that's Libby giving him the Santa mug; heck, I hope that's her.
