Would someone mind telling us what the characters are saying? The resolution is really terrible and the only thing I can tell is that Koya thinks Bebop and Rocksteady are disgusting.

So... I guess #49 dives into the whole gauntlet thing right off the bat. I'm surprised to see the Foot ninjas portrayed as so very effective for once, those bots usually give the Turtles themselves trouble.

Page 1 is Koya and Bludgeon expressing their distaste for B&R, like you said, and showing just how much of "Master" Shredder's Kool Aid they've drunk by stating that his return from the supposedly dead will bring nothing short of glory for the clan.

Page 2 is Shredder asking Baxter how the attack on Splinter and the Turtles is going, only for Baxter to reproach him for sending in Foot ninjas to assist in the fight. Shredder claims to have given no such order and quickly realizes Karai is behind the whole thing.

Page 3 is a bunch of Foot ninjas arriving to break up the fight on the bridge, destroying Baxter's bots in the process. With the Turtles puzzle by this turn of events, Karai steps in to explain herself.

This is out next week? How did I miss that?

Can someone fix the resolution so I can read the thought/word bubbles. I get what is going on, but would like to be able to read the words still. Thanks in advance.

Looks like Karai is taking some liberties with her role as chunin(sp?).

August 19th, in another week and a half.

I tried to improve the resolution but couldn't work out a way, here's a transcription of what's being said:

Spoiler:
Page 1

Koya: Look at them, Bludgeon... Disgusting.
Bebop: (?) Nailed that cat right on the noggin' with an anvil!
Rocksteady: Man, I wish I had an anvil!
Koya: How do those fools live with themselves?
Bludgeon: I don't know, Koya. Ignorance is bliss, I suppose.
Koya: But don't they understand how important today is? We thought our master dead but we were wrong. Now we have a chance at retribution for failing to protect him from his enemies. How do they not see that?!
Bludgeon: Forget those imbeciles, sister. All that matters is the master's promise that we will remain part of his grand plans. We are still his soldiers.
Koya: What do you think our mission will be, Bludgeon?
Bludgeon: Who's to say? All I know is, with master Shredder back in command...

Page 2

Bludgeon: ...it will be glorious.
Shredder: So, Stockman, how goes the slaughter?
Baxter: Everything is going to plan, Shredder. Just as I guaranteed. I certainly didn't need any assistance from your lackeys.
Shredder: My... Lackeys?
Baxter: The blasted ninjas you ordered into the fight without consulting me.
Shredder: I gave no such order. Who would-- KARAI!

Page 3

Shredder: Where is that damned girl?!
Michelangelo: Okaaayyy... Now I'm totally confused, guys.
Karai: It is simple, turtle...


I apologize in advance for any inconsistencies, it's not easy to figure out some of the text.

This early of a tease? I cant complain. I wonder how Karai overstepping her role will lead into the Shredder vs Splinter gauntlet? Apparently a massive shutdown of Stockman's machinations will fail and the four on four mutant brawl will be plan B. Maybe that will lead to Shredder letting her overstep this once? Perhaps set her up as more of a threat if he is taken off the map for a while. Just an educated guess. Discuss?

Don returning to form when exactly? first page of #50 and after the four on four? TMNT vs the Wolfpac! There is your wrestling reference,Leo656. Aren't you proud?

So anyone else thinking Karai's sudden appearance and discussing of what's she's up to might lead to Splinter thinking she's considered his words to her about "not being like your grandfather" but utter disappointment if she proves him wrong?

EDIT: 777th post. So lucky right now.

I'd love that to be the case.

Right now, I'm just thrilled to be wrong with how I predicted the issue would go. Did NOT see Karai sending Foot soldiers to "rescue" the Turtles.

This is gonna be some awesome!

Wait....Karai is not upoing the ante on the ambush? She is actually helping them? This is why I need to read the dialogue.

Pretty sure she is "rescuing" the Turtles from the Stockman Swarm so that they and Splinter can face Shredder in honorable combat, and thus end the feud between Hamato and Oroku... one way or another.

After all, if she's not helping the TMNT, why else would Saki be so pissed?

Putting in simply, Karai is ending this stupid feud, so the foot can get back to business of being a profitable ninja clan. She wishes to end it with an honorable battle, and the foot ninja are following her into her revolt against shredder that will lead to the duel. Karai sees this feud as counterproductive to the clan's well-being.

If they make a TMNT reboot movie retelling the shredder battle/origin, I won't buy a ticket.

Yeah, Karai is finally fed up with Shredder and making her move, apparently. About damn time.

It would be neat if this arc ends with Shredder tossed out of the Foot and Karai as their new leader making peace with Splinter and the turtles. Though I think it's just as likely that Kitsune will be pulling the Foot's strings more openly in the near future.

I think I like Karai intervening here not only for the push toward a conflict with Shredder, but that is 'protects' Stockman. If he fails to kill the turtles with his robots, I'm not sure why Shredder would keep him around, he looks too weak. But the implication is that if Karai and her foot didn't intervene (hey, foot soldiers actually looking tough? Doesn't happen that often) the 7 of them would be toast. You could argue they would have come out on top, but the implication is there.

I'm wondering if the first page is hinting at a potential weakness against the 4 mutants. There's contention in their ranks, as Koya and Bludgeon are disgusted by Rocksteady and Bebop. It would be interesting if the turtles use this splitting of the ranks to their advantage in the Gauntlet battle.
