Hmm, I wonder if Enseinhower found out they had an utrom or triceriton ship in custody at area 51.

Of course he'd be scared of the aliens.

And yes, I know that's the wrong president, wrong military base and wrong decade. I just don't know of anything better to post.

So... did Daddy Bishop just say Ike was scared of the government preparations he saw, not any aliens or monsters they had hidden in Area 51?

'Cause if I read that right, I like it. I like it a lot.

Spoiler:
(Also, that was the right everything. That entire Futurama episode is about Zoidberg being the Area 51 alien and the "ship" being Bender's body. Because of time travel made by Fry microwaving a metal popcorn container at the same time as a supernova)


But yeaaah of course it's another dad. Can we get some moms in there, please?

Also, knocked out by a naked gecko in a bathroom. Not exactly a dignified way to go out.

Taking guesses at what Eisenhower saw
  • Utrom stuff
  • Triceraton stuff (I'd say that's more likely); Bobby DID say we'd get cool Triceraton stuff in the summer somewhere in his Q&A
  • New aliens
  • Pantheon something or other.

Naked Mondo... Kinky!

Bishop Sr.'s rant has a certain resemblance to the Bayformers franchise's habit of shoehorning Cybertronians into every damn major event in the history of mankind with ominous overtones and hidden or forgotten artifacts. For once, I like the notion.

(Who am I kidding, it's one of the things I love about Bayformers as well!)

No, I don't think so... Bishop's father just isn't saying what alien stuff they had there. That's why Bishop is still pushing him for info.

Well that had a few funnier moments than expected.
Namely Raphael getting hit with the tranquilizer and the "ride Sally ride"
bit. Which was a long time coming and hit just right.

And Hob's reaction to Leo saying he was right.

Perfection.

Now the question becomes...who was making mutants in 1953 New Mexico??? And who were the mutants?
Krang is on Burnow, no one had started stealing Ooze yet. Supposedly, Honeycutt would still be a Neutrino at this point.
The Foot Clan is still a law firm, with Karai, nor likely her father, being born yet to revive it.
Shredder and Kitsune are in slumber and wouldn't be messing around with mutants (or Krang) anyway.

I'd say it's most likely Null is the most likely candidate, but what would she be doing in New Mexico in 1953? How would she have access to mutagenic compounds if Krang would have been the only one with them at the time? Unless she stole some from him while in Dimension X and that pushed Krang over the edge in his "mutant super soldier" plan's success, making him resort to the Technodrome.

Hob going after Bishop's dad was probably the biggest cliffhanger in a while too.

But also...what's up with how photorealistic that ID is?

All Hail TJ, the guy that got beaten up by a naked lizard...and is awfully gray haired compared to how he's actually colored???

Who else finds it a little funny that Bishop has a "Samung"/Samsung phone?

Hob, was SO BAD-@$$ in this issue!!!!

there was something seriously awesome about seeing a Mutant AlleyCat firing that Null blaster!

as soon as i saw what intel Mondo Geko had gathered, i was thinking the EXACT same thing that Hob was!!!

that last panel of Hob gave me chills!!

The Samsung thing made me laugh. It totally made me think that they'd better not let Peter Laird see that XD

Is there also the possibility of meeting some mutants that are actually older and have been around for a while? Great issue by the way! There was such a great variety of characters and moments.

My guess on one of the aforementioned mutants? Dreadmon

Wow, this issue was definitely worth the wait. So glad we get the final act in four short weeks! Santolouco and Pattison really knocked it out of the park on this one.

The story pacing and writing were great too, so thanks to Tom, Bobby and Kevin for that.

I though Bishop senior's comments about monsters could refer to either mutants or aliens, since the average layperson probably isn't going to know the difference based on sight alone. But I guess we'll see. That has been an interesting development in this story, the whole bit about what was going on at Area 51 in the 50s. Regardless of what you believe actually happened there its always interesting see it interpreted in fictional media.

Also, with all the Dimension X stuff on the horizon, I wonder if Pepperoni might one day become mutated, effectively becoming a "New Triceraton"

Looks like I WAS correct in how I interpreted Bishop Sr's statement...

Also, as soon as they introduced that character, I was pretty sure I knew what Hob would do. I was right.

He did indeed. Honestly, this could have and almost should have been just another Mutanimals arc. The Turtles have done nothing of value in this arc.

Kinda disappointed by that a bit... but I'm enjoying the Mutanimals too much to bother griping.

I also dug Nurse Starks. Her unflappable reaction to the remark about the giant talking man ray was great, it's too bad that she's most likely just a one-scene wonder. Her and Kara in the same scene would make for dialogue gold.

lmao yeah the Turtles kinda sh!t the bed in this arc. It was their insistence on going back to Mutanimal HQ that lead to them almost getting knocked tf out by Bishop-via-Slash. But seeing Mondo, Hob, and Sally save the day more than made up for it.
