I didn't have to know the TMNT stories well to find the book thing a bit weak... and not only that, but just one book. I remember watching the movie and thinking 'what?' suddenly Splinters skills (though of course he has them) lost some credibility.

The idea mentioned by some about Yoshi training the mutated rat is certainly something they could try.

I didn't even think about Leatherhead being a mutation that Yoshi witnessed. I was thinking he was a mutation that happened after Yoshi's/Splinter's - depending on which direction gets followed.

Maybe they were mutated in the sewer/basement with Yoshi, because when the reptile minds developed humanoid sapience, they had the duckling phenomenon and attached themselves to the nearest thing around. Which the Utroms determined to be Yoshi/Splinter since they wanted him to have companions. Perhaps they would have learned this from mutating Leatherhead earlier than the turtles, hoping he'd be the companion, but discovering he attached himself to Dr. Xeinos.

And she had the ghost of Shredder to help her, plus iirc Karai's dad Yori was the one who made the Clan into corrupt business men instead of hired pajamas mercenaries, so it's not that far off that some Clan members still knew the "old way" since what, the Foot Clan wasn't ninjas for 20-30 odd years?
Hey I never said it was the same, just that the ideia has been used before in the franchise, I even said she used the book as a basis, I never compared them both.
