The biggest thing against it to me, personally, is Raphael and Alopex haven't really done anything to seal them being in an actual relationship, and I don't think a time skip will jump into that (mostly because it's anti-climactic). Nor has there been enough buildup in recent issues to suggest anything going anywhere.

Now, if that was one of the youngest kids within the Foot Clan...

Allio 09-22-2019 09:42 AM

I don't think Alopex would be having sex with one of the kids within the foot clan. :P

Utrommaniac 09-22-2019 04:02 PM

I mean, the turtle IS one of the Foot Clan kids, who got mutated.

Same with Mona Lisa, maybe.

A really young kid and a teenager.

I mean, gotta give them a little more purpose than being a source for Karai's tantrum.

I wonder if monas shirt is short for manhattan university or mutant university.

I assume it's for Mutant University. That raises all sorts of interesting questions, such as what society in Mutant Town looks like, what kinds of job positions do they have, and of course, if there's any law enforcement. Which anyone suggesting is the Turtles themselves wouldn't be accused of crazy talk at this point.

It is from the first RPG handbook. It has no name.

ChosenOne 09-22-2019 05:40 PM

It'd be awesome if it were called Pinhead.

I'm guessing the opposite - she was attending Manhattan University, but having her keep the MU shirt makes for something amusing.

I suspect Mutant Town will be handled like District X in the X-Men books. All of a sudden a lot of people get mutated... and they just learn to adapt. Life goes on, there's bills to pay, kids to school, and internet message boards to argue on.

Sophie Campbell 09-22-2019 06:14 PM

For years I've been dying to do a mutant porcupine based on that old TMNT & Other Strangeness art by Kevin and Peter. ;) That was the book that got me into Turtles when I was little and the porcupine was always my favorite.

I'm thinking more along the lines of Magic Town(? I think it was) that was briefly the setting of Angel in one season of the comics, and Angel himself was the "sheriff" around those parts. I could see the Turtles in the role of peacekeepers and mediators, what with being some of the OG mutants.

Damo 09-22-2019 07:45 PM

Very much on the hype train for Sophie's new(ish) design.


Spoiler:
Are those freckles?

Utrommaniac 09-22-2019 07:55 PM

Didn't that design show up here for the first time during a discussion about her?

Will you be exploring the rules from the Character guide as well when developing your creatures during your tenure?

I wish! I'd love to adapt everything from Other Strangeness and all the sourcebooks (Mutants Down Under!!), but unfortunately they're off-limits for legal reasons, I can't explicitly use anything from them. :( I'll be trying to get some homages/references/in-jokes in there, though, without directly lifting any of the Palladium material.

Who owns the rights to the Palladium content? Wouldn’t that art and content be licensed from Peter and Kevin back in the 80’s, and so now in the hands of Nick/Viacom?

I'm not sure! I think Palladium probably still owns the art in that book (minus the TMNT art). All we can do now is homages like the Dream Beavers in the Nick cartoon.

edit: Actually I wonder if they don't own the artwork, just the text and artwork directly based on the text? Like the Terror Bears or Doc Feral, for example. I'm really curious!

Utrommaniac 09-22-2019 09:54 PM

I still can't believe TMNT creators are sleeping on the concept of a raccoon-possum mutant combo. You have two super prolific city animals and they just...don't get used.

You should press Tom or Kevin a bit. Licensing does not go on in perpetuity. The art should be available to use by the current rights holder. The nuances to the 2009 deal should allow for some wiggle room.

I know Rifts is repped by Surge, so perhaps they landed the rights to Palladium as well?

I know this sounds weird but after seeing the preview for issue 101 and some other pics I really would like jeninka to lose the pants. I know it sounds silly but with the other four turtles all pantsless in most situations it throws off the balance in a group shot being the only one wearing clothes, other then that I love jeninka her relationship with the turtles especially Leo and Mikey were great. I can not wait to see what the future holds

But she lived her whole life as a human. Why wouldn't she want pants?

I'll give the other Turtles pants to balance it out! :tgrin: It's time for them to realize they've been naked this whole time. I think the four Turtle boys and Alopex are the only mutants left without pants/bottoms of some kind, right? Even Herman wears pants somehow.

I dare you. People will lose their minds.
But seriously, Jennika needs to lose those robes. Get freaky and free. Tits. Out.

I've heard that if you say "Turtle tits" three times in front of a mirror, Peter Laird will appear behind you.

Now that I think about, if a mass mutation event is in fact about to happen, I wonder if Shredder is gonna play a role. After all, way back in his Villain Micro and Turtles in Time #4, it was very much implied (even outright stated) that he would be the reason for that to happen.

The way to beat Karai is for the orphans to be mutated with Oroku Saki leading the charge against the Dragon King who Karai follows?

Ninjinister 09-24-2019 11:50 AM

Nah babby turtle is actually Jennika and Casey's kid. She was preganté when she mutated.

This thread reminds me why I was embarrassed to tell anyone I was a TMNT fan pretty much my entire childhood.

Thanks, guys.
