Mammoth seeing Raphael in himself how will that play put down the line?

Mammorh was no help, but not a threat like most of the Pantheon. Yet Leonardo seems to have picked up something.

Rst King ate a rat? He has been watching Norman Osborne for too long. Yes, gross and shows he is off his rocker. It's just in most iteraruins despite being a human Rat King considers himself a rat so it does not feel right for that move.

That sort of perspective is only likely to get ramped up now that Mayor Stockman is about to become a thing.
Is this setting up a rebellion from Splinter? I mean Lupo serms to think its in the underworld's best interest to even if he was put in his place. There is also Jenika apparently crushing on Casey Jones and that could have her turn on Splinter as well.

Mousers vs The Rat King! I wish the 1987 cartoon did something like this. It has been practically screaming to be done for decades now.

So Hun is an ally or what? Arnold Sr. has been an afterthought ever since #54.

Probably setting up a more City at War-esque arc after Splinter bites it or is overthrown. Jennika already turned on him once, technically... Add a love interest into the equation and she'll do it again without a second thought.

The Mousers will probably intervene at a crucial point in the fight next issue.

Hun is muscle for the Purple Dragons while he works at rebuilding the bond with his son. Pretty much his only purpose for existing right now, which is why I see a heroic sacrifice in his future.

The Foot Clan (or Purple Dragons) generally dominate over every other gang that shows up in the series. As I said it happened to The Savate, The Ghost Boys, the clan in the Karai mini, The Street Phantoms, Lupo and his gang, the New Jersey gang from the previous issue, etc. It's generally just to show us over and over that the Foot Clan/Purple Dragons will consistently wipe out any other gang that shows up in the series. They're basically all fodder, and that's why it feels like the same thing over and over.

Unless Bishop/EPF decide to directly attack Splinter/The Foot, there really is nobody to challenge them. I guess we could see a big change when Karai finally gets back to New York (which is taking a long time, lol), but until then not much will change.

And besides that Null's stuff seems like it takes place in an entirely separate bubble, with the Mutanimals just being allies of the Turtles and wanting to stop her.

He's eaten rats a bunch of times. I think three, maybe? It's always pretty gross though...

Rats and mice are known cannibals, so it makes sense.

IDW's Rat King is a bit of a mystery, to this day I have no idea what he's trying to accomplish.

We know Kitsune has a clear objective to ressurrect Shredder as her father the Dragon Lord, but Rat King just seems to cause chaos and mayhem without any real motive. Although I guess that's the point of him as that's his role in the Patheon, just like Toad Baron just likes making extravagant parties with food and have a ball.

What is The Joker trying to accomplish? Anarchy. Same with The Rat King. It is how they get their kicks. The more chaos, the more anarchy which means the more fun.

"Chaos for the sake of chaos" isn't really a villain motivation I particularly like, personally. It just seems like it was made by a middle school edgelord creating their first OC.

(Zaheer from Legend of Korra is an exception, though.)
