Starts the road to #100? I thought #51 did!? Leatherhead and Triceratons involved? Witnesses perhaps? Is Hack-r connected to Malinga or would his failure and capture caise Kramg to try again with Malinga?

Was it already known that Stump was in this?
He's there on #75 A beside Fugitoid and what I can assume is Sling
This looks like a great series. Love Cory's art
Also from the looks of this Cover A does anyone else get the impression that Donnie might not be going back with his brothers right away.
Something about his posture I guess

I had a sneaking suspicion that Leatherhead would be one of the witnesses, or at least involved in some capacity, especially after Bobby commented that we'd be seeing him "sooner rather than later", and I'm kicking myself for not having mentioned it before now.

This is also probably where the Triceratons first take notice of the Turtles and/or Earth, so it's quite a big development that could have untold ramifications in the future. Is the #100 endgame a Triceraton invasion of Earth? No, it can't be. Can it...?

Just when we thought it couldn't get any better... :o

You could be onto something regarding Donnie. Maybe he has to stay behind in Dimension X for a little while for diplomatic reasons or something

I wonder what's up with all the Leo clones.

I'm guessing it's just a hallucination or illusion or something, and Karai is going to come back for the Foot Clan with a vengeance, blaming Leo for starting the chain of events that lead to her ousting

It is very interesting. If you look closely at the right and left edges of each of the covers, you will see 73 and 74 issues have a combined cover, but 75 does not connect to them. As if one cover is missing.

...I'm raising my bet that Krang isn't going to survive to the end of this story.

But at last, the Triceratons are back!

CyberCubed
07-19-2017, 03:14 PM
I don't think Krang will be executed, he might just be banished to a toxic waste planet like Krang in Archie, or to an ice asteroid like Ch'rell in 4kids before he returned.

Krang in exile is a pretty common end for his character, and leaves the door open if they ever want to use him again years down the line.

And killing major characters seems to be a no-no for IDW.

Except for Saki.

It would extremely funny if they put him on Morbus if they didn't know any better. He'd have that planet under his control in something like a month.

Otherwise, I think the best logical option is to stick him on Burnow, while removing all means of teleportation so he won't try to cause havok. Why?
The risk of Ch'rell and other Utroms making a martyr out of Krang whether he's executed or banished would be too great, plus there's the potential that they might want revenge.

Plus, in the case that the Triceratons take over, it would create a B-plot wherein they have to take the hard way to get to the Utroms for help in fighting them. Because of course they'd have to be involved in fighting their own creation.
(Maybe with Churk having a Doctor Frankenstein complex with them, since he's technically the root of their existence?)

Starts the road to #100? I thought #51 did!?

Uh, why can't it be both? It's pretty obvious every issue from 51 onward is building toward the 100 climax. Issue 75 is just the midpoint, like issue 25 was back when we were headed to issue 50.

If this Krang arc comes to a neat conclusion with not much loose ends, I imagine we'll head back to Bishop or Pantheon story arcs on the road to 100. There really isn't much room to add any other big story, and they still have Null to focus on whenever they remember she exists.

Utrommaniac
07-19-2017, 09:47 PM
So...is anyone else wondering why they're still holding the trial if there's an invasion going on at the same time? Shouldn't they put things on a pause and deal with that?

Well, in its defense, a Triceraton invasion (as well as Null's mutant agenda) could overlap nicely with the Bishop plot that already encompasses the Mutanimals and Stockman... I don't see how it could tie in, however, with the Pantheon plot and/or whatever role Splinter and the Foot still have to play.

Well after #75, there's only 25 issues to the big 100. Bishop still needs another big arc about his backstory or the Burnow Island issue.

And of course we now have a lot of new Pantheon members who all need their own arcs too, like Jagwar, Manmoth, etc. So that could be a couple issues for each. Other than that they could cover Null in Universe so she doesn't interfere with the main story.

And other than that there's not much else, besides all the usual recurring characters like Old Hob/Mutanimals, Leatherhead, etc. all being mixed in with everyone. I think we'll see Fugitoid and the Neutrinos closed off after this arc for the time being.

Jagwar and Manmoth do not need their own arcs. They're simply there to round off the Pantheon.

So you don't want to see them do anything? I'd imagine each Pantheon member would get some time in the spotlight or focus, not just be there. We already had Rat King, Kitstune, Chi-you, and Aka have their focus. I imagine Jagwar is almost definitely going to be the next major Pantheon member with an arc, then the other two.

I really don't care about these characters, and I feel like we're getting really close to the Pantheon story being finished. I hope Rat King to stick around beyond the finale, but at this point in the plot, I'm expecting to see the Pantheon working as factions, not individuals anymore.

So no, I don't really want to see an individual story for Jagwar, or Manmoth, or Gothano. Seeing them function as parts of a whole will be sufficient for me.

I have to believe we will see the Pantheon pop up in universe right before we get to #100 dealing with the resurrection of Shredder...I also wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't Universe, that if we get a 5 week back to back series again it could revolve around them

Yeah I think they will get enough time to shine in stories that focus on the Pantheon as a whole, we don't need story arcs like "Jagwar's Jungle Journey" or "Manmoth Moves Mountains" :lol: I want to see more of them, but it would probably better serve the story to see them as a group and detail more of their family dynamic

ChosenOne
07-20-2017, 11:50 AM
My take on this? If Jagwar, Manmoth and Gothano were meant to get any significant (keyword here being "significant") character development on their own, then they wouldn't have been introduced all at once. They're meant to work as part of the Pantheon, and we will definitely get more paneltime with them, but there's no need to slow down the narrative just for that at this point.

Utrommaniac
07-20-2017, 04:43 PM
Gothano is probably going to be important down the line, being the "secret keeper" and will probably have quite a lot to share should he somehow spill some of what he knows.

I was thinking the same thing. If Chi-You is freed in TMNT/Ghostbuster II then we might have Kitsune,Rat King, and Chi-You vs Aka, Jagwar, Mammoth, Toad Baron with Gothano in the middle with a key role. I might be wrong on Toad Baron as he could go either way going by the way he has presented himself. I do hope that of them all Rat King finds a way to stay around. What if he is cursed to become mortal and takes refuse in the sewers?

It's pretty obvious Jagwar is going to get an arc down the line, as she's a popular Archie Mutanimal character. The fact that she's also a warrior also helps because she'll be involved in some combat situations likely with the main cast.

As for any of the Pantheon having a prominent role it would be likely be prominent but brief to resolve something like Aka did in #60 or be a villain for an arc as we have seen with three already. Rat King does deserve more than the bore of Casey & April.
