I'm giving a vote in the negative. These multiverse crossovers always end up pigeonholing the "other" turtles as extreme caricatures and making the turtles leading the story as well-rounded characters.

After "Turtles Forever" and the Mirage stuff in the Nick cartoon, there would probably also be a dumb inclination to make the Mirage TMNT appear in literal black and white.

That really bothers me. I'm sure it's (probably) not intended with any malice or as a slight and maybe it's even the people behind it thinking it accentuates their "bad-ass"-ness, but it kind of seems to suggest, "The Mirage TMNT are only in black and white... they are not as EVOLVED as the {insert children's cartoon verse Turtles}. They don't even have color!"

Which again, is dumb. There's been tons of color Mirage TMNT stuff since the very beginning.

the Covers of the Mirage comics were all printed in color. even though the four (five if you count Raphael #1) issues were monochrome.
after that the cover were all printed in full color.
and when issues 1-4 (and Raph) were all reprinted, eventually they too had gotten full color covers.

that to me is representative of what their world looks like. i mean how else do we know that the Ninja Turtles are all wearing red masks?

it's silly for people to just assume they're living in a universe of only B&W.
did people make that same assumption about The Walking Dead comics?

Let's not forget the ENTIRE second volume of Mirage is in full-color.

Or Usagi Yojimbo? Or anything, really?

I'm also pretty sure I remember the Mirage Turtles wearing 3D glasses in a theater once. How would that possibly work in a B&W universe?

more very good points, especially about Mirage Vol. 2.
i don't have my copy of 'Anything Goes' nearby, but i'm pretty sure there was a story in there printed in color as well?

the problem is that most people only look, but they do not see.
