Oh cool, he has the TMNT reprints book I have. Ah yes the memories...

Light-skinned, might be a more accurate term.

Do you have those First Colored reprinted from the 80's? She was blatantly colored white in them.

But that's white. She wasn't drawn with caramel skin.

I really feel like this thread needs a little Avenue Q sing-along right about now..... (Those familiar with it know to which song I am referring....)

I like how many liberties people take in their research when word of god says otherwise.

her facial features when she was first depicted in second mirage comic book are white also her hair style is caucasian and doesnt look like black woman hair style so this is how i see it, later incarnations/variations do not count cause there were variations.
Most turtles cartoons were based on these first issues where shredder and mousers ,baxter are, and yes baxter should be black in cartoons and its dumb they made him this nerdy ginger scientist with mad professor hairstyle.

If Nick really wanted to make a mark on TMNT then make some brand new characters of diversity. Ones that could actually have staying power and add to the mythos but nope, they'd rather pursue a more lazy way of showing diversity by changing an established character.

This thread isn't about Rise's Black April though but April in general being black which we now know was not true.

As far as Rise, I was on the same page as you completely, I hate race changing whether it's asian to white or white to black and prefer having new original cool characters of those races but look at it this way, this is not a "main" TMNT universe, it won't have Shredder as the villain, Raph is leader, it's all about magic. Take it as a fun alternative TMNT universe, like when DC comic heroes visit those universes and Luthor is the good guy, those universes might not be the ideal "main" universe but are still cool. The fact that April has been black in previous alternative universe storylines makes it ok.

Other turtles can live a long time. Alligator snapping turtles can live 200 years.

Actually, rats can live up to seven years. Even mice can reach four or five years under good care. Most rodents live for at least three to four, in good conditions. And alligator snappers reach about 150, not 200- that age range is almost entirely reserved for Galapagos and Aldabaran tortoises.

Yeah, they're turtles. They don't have race.

But, to be fair, there was that episode of the OT where one of the guys became human and was Caucasian.
And then there's 2012 Mikey.

That would be Mikey, in The Gang's All Here. One of my fave Mikey-centric eps, for the simple reason that it brought a lot of development to him, and was pretty funny, to boot!

Um, no.... I was thinking of "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist". See, now you made me go and say it outright. But it still fits....
