Sure, but there was at least some big kernel within him that made that worthwhile. He's a scary dude with sunglasses and a big gun going around f***ing freezing people. Later on they added the sympathetic backstory from TAS, sure, but he was worth the investment.

Now, Bebop, Rocksteady? Um... I guess they're, uh, strong? Good at holding Krang blasters and missing a lot? Drawing a blank here on anything unique or endearing about them beyond their look to warrant any investment.
