As fro Eastman thinking Karai was Saki's daughter, meh. It happens. I also find it kind of odd/ funny that the only other incarnations that showed Karai as Shred's equal or Superior were The videogames and the 2007 movie, which was amazing.
I don't think I've quite thought of Gabrielle's role like that before. It's been some time since I read those books, so I always just thought of her as a delivery method for Shadow to enter the story.

It was a joke, and it was also a loose reference to how all other continuities make her Shredder's daughter. Also a remark on how ifone of the co-creators thinks a concept is good enough for Turtles, that gives it a lot of weight to me.

IDW is the best version of TMNT

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

Not all, she's a grand (insert several grands) daughter in IDW.

Given Kevin hasn't worked on Mirage for a long time, I doubt he referring Karai as Shredders daughter is intentional.

*sigh* FIIIIINE! I meant descendant/adopted daughter/however you want to nitpick it. Every other version besides Mirage has had a familial connection, and made her subservient to Shredder. Only in Mirage, where she was- in my view- as bland as carboard, did she stand on her own.

Pretty funny actually.
That's a really good point. I was pretty weirded out/confused by the comment when I read it too.

So your opinion aside, she only stands alone... in the source material. Good enough for me.

Though it's not entirely clear if she was either containing a familial connection to Saki or subservient to him in the fourth movie, though as much as she was worried about him coming back and all that it's probably a fair bet at least the latter is a fair bet.
