What's your favourite Mondo Gecko origin?

Certainly not the Fred Wolf cartoon one!

I think Archie probably handled it best.

Mondo? Don't really care but if I have to go with one, the IDW one. Hob commissioned Lindsey to make him in order to expand his mutant forces, doesn't need to be much more complicated than that for a character like Mondo Gecko. No need for "Mr X" walking around in the sewers for no reason or a kid with a pet gecko getting covered in ooze during a contrived scenario, there's even less of a need to actually combine them.

I feel the same about this as I do Bebop and Rocksteady's origin, just take some animals and dip them in ooze, does really have to be that hard when it comes to these sorts of characters?

I only know the origins for the OT, Archie, and the Nick series. Between these three, I prefer the Archie story, albeit simple. I hate the OT one with a passion. It's way too convoluted.

I actually liked his OT origin. It was an interesting addition to the turtles' backstory that they themselves had forgotten/didn't know about. It also gave him a sort of Oliver-esque history which I liked.

The fred wolf one was simple and kinda cool. Having Mondo being an extra bro was cool yo.

Both original Mondo Gecko versions are OK.
