It's pretty amazing how much trouble Ben Bates got into for trying to incorporate that into Rocksteady's character . He didn't just get in trouble with Bobby Curnow, the goddamn head of IDW itself came forward and shut that down. He had to close his Twitter account.

Wow, really? This is the first time I'm hearing this, do you have any links where this originally went down?

He basically got smacked on the head and told he had no control on that aspect of his character. At this point, Rocksteady got the tattoo because he thought it looked cool and Bebop was just as clueless as him, so it happened.

It's for the best, or at the least they could have made Rocksteady a Russian with pride for Mother Russia like the Nick version.

For all we know every version of Rocksteady might be of Russian heritage. He has blonde hair in all incarnations, it's quite likely Rocksteady has always been of Russian descent.

Pretty sure that's the bit that got the biggest laugh out of me during the second crossover.

Russians are quite diverse in looks. You mentioned several times before you're of russian origin and you've claimed to be a brunette. A russian doesn't automatically need to be blonde and I don't think blondes are even a majority in Russia?

I am far removed from being Russian, just most likely my great grandparents come from there and Europe in general like anyones when you go back to the late 1800's or earlier.

As for blonde Russian's, it's very common.

But you still have "russian genes" buddy.

I know it is. Not saying it isn't. But it's not a rule or anything. And like I've said, Russians vary in looks and ethnicity. It's a rather diverse country.

If Rocksteady has always been Russian due to having natural blonde hair than, he could also be Scandinavian or Dutch if we're going by stereotypes.

The genes dilute through generations.

Sure but if your family had stayed in Russia I doubt you'd look any different than whatever you look like now. Unless there's more than "russian" in your family tree once they got to the US that might have given you a larger variety of genetics.

Everyones ancient ancestors come from Europe or Africa, doesn't mean we all still are.

Actually, Cubed, if your family is from Russia, there's a GOOD chance you're related to Genghis Khan. Apparently he was veritable rabbit where siring offspring is concerned, and now a good percentage of Asian and European families have his genes. Just sayin.

I'm talking about genes, not culture. Ofc you're American and not Russian, but that doesn't mean your "Russian genes" have evaporated as you seem to be implying. That's all.

I'm going to get my Hatchet-Man tattoo covered up with a Foot Clan logo. So I can say I'm covering up one fake gang tatt with another.

Have we ever seen the Turtles go through puberty? Like, physically?

In terms of overall height and appearance, they never appear to change. They always seem to never gain scars, bumps, etc.

I hope that the Rise! cartoon will explore this.

I think that it's an interesting topic to explore.

Teen Titans covered it with Starfire (by giving her a zit), AWofG! covered it with Gumball and Darwin (by lowering their voices) ...

So, why shouldn't it be covered with the TMNT?
