The backlash/outrage will be hilarious to see, black April won't be able to match it. We already saw how the drome took it, imagine the rest of the net.
One of my big fears is Raph will be physically larger than the other Turtles, similar to how big Nick's Slash was to the regular Turtles. The description says Raph is the oldest and largest of the Turtles, I really hope they don't make him some huge hulk like design, or draw him big like Nick Slash was.

More likely we'll probably see Krang himself lead an evil band of Utrom. That's basically what the Kraang were anyway, they were just Utroms enslaved under the hive mind of Kraang Prime, and Kraang Subprime was designed to be Fred Wolf Krang's counterpart.

Or probably how Nick Donatello is taller than all of his fellow turtles, just with Raph's muscle.

Depends on the size. I expect them to all look unique again like the Nick Turtles, but as long as it's not too much a difference. Nick's Slash towered over the Turtles, if they draw Raph like that it'll completely ruin the team dynamic of all the Turtles seeming like equal fighters.

Maybe not the right word, but it Does seem like it'd be the first thing people would gravitate to complain too, just to complain. 'why isn't she a scientist, why does she have to be a subway MTA Worker?'

I will say the art style is a little less stylized looking than I feared it was going to be.

April should be a scientist though,

If she's a teen then she can't but at least she should be part of the high school newspaper to be a reporter.

Since this is 2D and not CG this time, now they can actually show April in school and her classmates rather than the barren hallways in the first season.

Also if Irma shows up hopefully she's not a Kraang/Utrom this time.

And Vernon/Casey as her classmates while Burne is the hot headed teacher.

I wonder whether Krang, the Utroms or both will be used for this series. If the crossover with Nick turtles will really happen with this show, you can bet they will have a Kraang villain who is later revealed to be from the Nick series.

Principal is also an option for Mr. Burne. At this rate, make Baxter the twisted science teacher who goes bad eventually.

I don't think we'll see many established characters. I'm guessing new main villain,
and only later seasons will feature known villains/allies after fan complains online.

Yes!that's how I imagined a Teen April show , Stockman could be the science teacher. Sort of like X-Men evolution but with TMNT and each season was a year of HS so the characters would evolve like they did in XM:E

Otherwise I just prefer adult April

Do you think Casey Jones will be introduced right away or hold him off till the second season like Nick did? I hope Casey stays white though, I don't want every characters race changed. I could see them making him hispanic though.

I feel like that would only have a thread of validity if it had a reason to stand out. Like if 6 white characters in a black character's circle were all scientists or board members and that black character was a mechanic, and the only black character in the series/group. But just having a blue collar or unemployed/homeless black character isn't a stereotype itself. If we got a white Casey who is a biochemist then we might have a problem.

Then again look at Ghostbusters... Winston was the only one not from a scientific background and he was better off for it - the audience surrogate, voice of reason, and personally my favorite character of the series.

Hey, that's a pretty good-looking design. I have a slight bit of optimism about this series now.

Now that you bring it up, with Raph as the leader, it should be interesting to see how they use Casey, if at all. Could they use it as an opportunity to outline Raph's shortcomings as a leader, or will they make him more like a father figure for Casey? Or maybe they won't use that dynamic at all.

If they keep him white, that would be a relationship that is rarely ever portrayed in TV- a black girl with a white boy. One is more far more likely to see a gay relationship on TV then this kind.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out, as for one thing, I am really excited they are going this direction.

I hope they keep Casey Jones white, you rarely see shows featuring characters in interracial relationships.
