I imagine Aska is in a particularly "fun" circle of rights hell too. I'm always curious if big company acquisitions even know about fringe stuff like this.
I'm not Bobby, but Dan Berger told me that Mirage didn't own any of the characters originating from the TMNT manga and anime.

Yeah.

Volume 3 is definitely a highlight, but no specific story comes to mind.
The first 12 issues of Vol. 1 are hard to top for me, everything that is Turtles is in there. TMNT #2 is the first TMNT comic I ever read, so that holds a special place in my heart.

I dig The River a lot too.

I know literally almost nothing about the TMNT manga, so I defer to John here!

We can do a sappy mushy Valentine's issue featuring romantic pairings of Raph/Alopex, Koya/Bludgeon, Angel/April, and Sally/Lindsay. Or I'd introduce Mona Lisa and then everyone would hate me.

I wouldn't hate you! Actually, I've been wondering if she would ever show up in the series. I'd like to think she could join the Mutanimals. They are woefully short of female members. (And she could possibly be close to Mikey like Alopex is with Raph.)

Here's a vote for hating Mona's inclusion.

But on that note, what makes you guys decide on which older characters are fit for revival?

I just assumed characters were added as their inclusion in the storyline became practical.

Obviously, but many of them are interchangeable. Like when it came down to forming a new Mutanimals team, for example, how would they settle on which new (old) characters to introduce? Mutagen Man could've been one of a hundred other mutants. Is it a matter of pleasing fans, or does the creative team want to make use of someone? This is the thought behind my question.

It's usually just a matter of who best fits the story. Mutagen Man for example, I believe could not have been another character-- his appearance is immediately horrific and an instant reminder of what can/has happened to mutants at the hands of humans (or, well, Null), which served a very specific purpose in the Mutanimals story. Sometimes, like Mondo, it's a general sense of who would be a good foil other characters like Hob and Slash. There's no real science behind it-- it's either a general "feel" thing or maybe someone is a character who is just the right fit for the story at the moment, which will be the case with Leatherhead I think.

Yeah, I guess he does fit a more specific role than any other would. But let's say you guys wanted to add an additional mutant somewhere in the story for one reason or another, not necessarily because of any specific attributes or requirements, just 'cause you need a mutant. How would you guys reach that decision, by discussing your favorites together at one of the meetings or something? Throw darts at an old Playmates toy package character chart?

I have to say, if Mona is included...no. just please, no.

Unless she's alien and not mutant...

Aliens that look like earth turtles that walk upright like people is far superior an idea I think that another mutant turtle. More mutant turtles is like Superman having his cousin, and uncle and a whole bottle of Kandorian's around...

That's my two cents that no one asked for... lol

Or, assuming the other two escaped Stockgen mutants are mutated alligator snapping turtles just like Slash, because scientific experiments tend to work with subjects from the same species, have them be Tokka and Mona Lisa. Bam! Done.

Yeah, probably discuss during a meeting, and see if a specific species of animal lends itself to a certain type of personality or skill set needed for a plot point.

Dang... Guess I've had that wrong for years, I thought they were both female turtles. I'm not exactly knowledgeable on all corners of the franchise. After Googling Mona Lisa, wouldn't she be too similar to Mondo Gecko anyway?

Mona Lisa is a salamander. The Nick cartoon made her into a salamander alien race too, driving that point home even more.

I don't know where anyone gets that she was ever a salamander. She was green and non-amphibious. An anole or other iguanid, most likely. I'll grant a sea iguana maybe, but that's as far as I'd go toward an aquatic species. She did NOT have the slimy skin or flattened tail of salamanders or newts!

She never mentioned anything about using them in her experiments, either.

Everyone, go start a Mona Lisa thread and please, stop cluttering the "Ask the Editor" thread.

If we want Bobby to keep spending as much time answering our pedantic yet eager questions, we need to make it as easy as possible for him.

How did the idea for Splinter assuming leadership of the Foot following his defeat of Saki come about?

Also, the end of #50 which shows Krang taking Hamato's family's DNA samples. I read that was only thought up when the ongoing was in the #30s'. Do you plan on following up on that eventually?

I wish I had a more exciting answer, but I think it was just something that popped in my head a few years back, when thinking about what might become of the Foot Clan post-Shredder.

I think eventually, but there's not set time or place for it at this juncture.
