With final story set 50 years in a apocalyptic future, what do you think would be the cause of it.

The Turtles have saved the world before, but why couldn't they save the world this time. Maybe it was something that was out of there hands and just couldn't do anything to stop it.

I've added a poll, if you select other please specify.

I have a feeling we won't be told. It'll probably be hinted at, but no clear reason.

It might be similar to what happens in Mirage and Archie, where climate change just causes the sea levels to rise and mans pollution destroys the ozone layer.

There was a mutagen spill at a farm, the mutant cows produced so much methane it skyrocketed global warming.

Chompy...

(Though I'd rather it took him a million years to become that large and destroy the planet.)

I think the future will be a result of a war between humanity and the Kraang, with the Kraang winning at the end and successfully invading the planet.

If the Turtles traveled 50 years into the future, and its an apocalyptic future? its possible that, due to traveling forward in time, they been missing for 50 years, and the Turtles not being around during those 50 years, weren't able to stop some kind of apocalyptic event from happening.

Kind of like that episode from the 4Kids cartoon, in which Donnie was teleported into the future, and April from the future tells him he's been missing for many years, and Shredder has taken over.

No they won't be traveling 50 years in the future. It's been confirmed that the turtles do age 50 years but they won't look 50 years older.

Given Ciro takes some things from the comics, it'll probably be Mirage/Archie related. Especially since there's also a character named Verminator Rex showing up, which is similar to Verminator X from Archie, a cyborg cat mutant who looks like Old Hob from IDW.

Vicky82

I don't think it will be Chompy because if he starts growing bigger and bigger and Raph start having trouble controlling him then Bishop will have to take him back to his planet or just kill him.

Also as Chompy is an Alien Tortoise he may age and grow very slowly, so he probably be an age as a teenager and hadn't grown that much in 50 years.

Also poor Raph would get the blame for it and I don't think the Raph fans here would like the fact that he's responsible for destroying the earth. There be moaning from them for the next 10 years.

One question, as this final is going to have Mad Max references in it and as I've never seen any Mad Max movies. What was reason that caused an apocalyptic future in Mad Max.

He's not the only person that said Global Warming though.

I chose global warming too because of Mirage/Archie futures and I've been right about things 'cough' Splinters Death 'cough'

It wasn't really explained as far as I remember, but it had to do with resource shortages and war. Society collapsed and citizens began to arm themselves and started living in the wastelands under primitive cirumstances. There were biker gangs which terrorized the roads.

Ok thanks.

So it's possible that they could use that version of apocalyptic future in TMNT.

Yeah, it's possible. It does have some similarities. People living in the deserts and wastelands, biker gangs terrorizing the roads, it was survival of the strongest.

Although there were some attempts to maintain the law through the MFP (Main Force Patrol). The main character (Max) was part of the MFP. His family was killed by a biker gang. He went rogue and set out for revenge.

The second Mad Max Movie was also known as "The Road Warrior."

Will this be the same future as the end of the "Halfshell Heroes: Blast to the Past" (if that even was in the future, maybe just an alternate 2015 or whatever Earth).

No because Shredder is dead and it has nothing to do with Half Shell Heroes.

I've been correct or close in most of my predictions for this show, and the IDW comics. As well as the 2k3 series too, back in 2004-2007 in those old threads.

I don't think it's global warming after all, but it would certainly cause problems to climate change and other things.

Agreed. Shredder and Tiger Claw are done, so Karai is probably leading the Foot Clan.

Yeah but as she's half mutant she may age slowly but not as slowly as the turtles.

April will probably age slowly because she's half human half Kraang.

Casey and Shinigami would actually be near 70 years old as they are human.

CyberCubed
08-09-2017, 04:32 AM
I don't think every mutant ages slowly. Just the Turtles do because it's similar to real life Turtles or how they age slowly in Mirage and Archie.

There's no reason why every single mutant would age slower than humans, that doesn't make any sense.

neatoman
08-09-2017, 05:13 AM
Yeah, gotta agree with Cubed on this one, if anything Karai's mutation into a viper would cause her aging to speed up five times. Assuming it did, she'll die in her late 20's.

I think we're in for a real treat with these last few eps. I always loved when shows did a time skip to the future, and seeing how the Nick TMNT era apparent has a sad ending given the nature of the series, it seems quite exciting.

Too bad we probably won't see these eps aired till like early 2018 though at this rate. :lol:

From a purely selfish point of view I hope not. Then again I can't see what the future holds and maybe even an early 2018 release might work regardless.

These last three, I can't say how they'll come off to the fans, so many different stories I got from a production POV, but the story itself I'm confident will be talked about among the fandom. It was a story that was the most near and dear to Ciro this season, and it was important to Nickelodeon too.

Yeah, I guess that means everyone is going to die.

At the moment the most talked about episode is Lone Rat and Cubs, my Tumblr blog is full of baby turtles from that IGN clip :D

I expect it depends how it's handled. We see the the turtles have died and then the next minute we see them being reunited with Splinter in the afterlife so it will be a happy/sad ending.

If Nickelodeon do get a lot of complaints then they probably wouldn't give a damn anyway because of the new show coming out next year.

I honestly don't know how I would feel about everyone dying, that would be so depressing. After following this series for years, and getting attached to the main characters, I think it would break my heart.

Storywise it could make for a powerful impact. Especially if they have some kind of heroic last stand or sacrifice.


Personally I would like seeing the turtles, April, Casey and their closest friends together, riding off into the sunset.

I find it a bit scary thinking who might still be alive at the end of the series.

To be honest the death of everyone will tie up all the loose plot threads of the series. Mutagen Man never de-mutated? Well, he died instead!

Yes, if it happens later, less people care.

*First Nickelodeon wanted Splinter dead from the start (not sure if it was killed)
*When the idea was given up, Nickelodeon killed Splinter during late-season 3, only to restore him with time travel.
*Then Nickelodeon killed him for good during late-season 4, by airing the episode in South Korea first.

Oh no I meant that I hope they air it sooner since Cubed mentioned that he could see it being delayed til 2018. What I meant is I hope it airs sooner so I can use the last episode I worked on for my demo reel. I did some good work on that last episode, we all did considering the limitations we got into that I'll elaborate when they air it. I hated the delays like everyone else, no one disliked the delays more than the people who worked on it since we didn't understand it either.

And I never said everyone dies :). I just think most people will be surprised where they go with it.

It is quite possible we might not get the last arc this year.

For one thing we're going on another rerun break after the toddler Turtles ep airs. Then after that we know the Monster Arc is planned to air around October for Halloween. The 3-part Original cartoon Turtle crossover is coming out on DVD in September but we have no idea when it'll air on TV.

Then after all that...we'll probably be in December. So unless the last 3-parter airs in December, I can see them holding it over till early 2018.

Nickelodeon usually don't air new episodes between late-November and mid-January, so I see no point of hoping for episodes around that time. Maybe February 2018.
