April's Best Job?

Thought the franchise, April has mostly been known to either be a lab assistant/programmer, an antique shop owner, or a T.V. news reporter. In the TMNT 2007 movie, she was a treasure hunter for hire, an extension of her job as an antique shop owner, which I think is a logical evolution of her character, seeing as how she hangs around four adventure seeking mutant turtles. In my opinion, the news reporter role is extremely cliche and staying put at an antique store doesn't seem challenging enough, but one could argue it brings some normalcy to her life of mutants, ninjas, and aliens. Thoughts?

Definitely the 2007 movie for me, for the reasons you gave. She used her skills she got from searching for her uncle Augie.

TV reporter probably pays the best, although I confess to having no idea what the current take-home rate on "Indiana Jones"-ing is. Lab assistant probably paid second-best.

Lab assistant was probably the most prestigious, but it was pretty short lived. You know, because her boss was criminally insane.

Remember one ep of the original cartoon where Burne threatened that he would, "Send April down to the mailroom," or "One more mistake and I'm busting you to the mailroom!"

Is the mailroom really that much a step down from a news reporter?

I dunno. Is janitor much of a step down from vice-president of marketing?

Is village idiot much of a step down from Senior Municipal Moron?

Channel Six News reporter. I would have liked to have seen her end up behind the anchor desk regularly.
