As for Mikey, he hasn't been portrayed as a screw-up at all. There's a difference between a well-rounded character with flaws (IDW) or a 1-dimensional character solely defined by stereotypes (Nick).
Nick's Mikey has a lot of dimensions.

Nick's Mikey has a lot of dimensions.
He's done it by choice, thrice. The Krang War arc, where he was helping scientists assemble a war-ending weapon; and the fight against Bebop and Rocksteady and the attack on Burnow Island, both instances where he was the one responsible for bringing in the Foot Clan.

Neither had anything to do with him being a weaker fighter; he's fought right alongside his brothers against the Street Phantoms, against Leatherhead, against Shredder, to rescue Leo from the Foot Clan, against Koya and the Foot Assassins...

A Donnie with a fedora, neckbeard, and MLP doll? Who'd buy that?

Nick Donnie and PD Mikey could be such good friends. They'd finally have something to relate to. *cringe*

One thing that must be kept in mind is that the Nick series was made after 4kids and FW. While it does mean that Nick can correct the mistakes made in the prior shows, there is also alot more pressure on Nick to be original while still staying true to what made tmnt great. Drift away too far and you will be accused of being unfaithful. Stay too close and you will be accused of not being original enough. And despite the high expectations, I think this show was absolutely fantastic and that there's alot to take away from it. I would say this even if season 4 was the end.

the biggest and best thing this series did for me was the fluid 3D fighting moves! i really loved the visual effects as the weapons would spin or slash.

Curious, what makes you guys prefer Nick Leo to 4Kids Leo? The fact that Nick Leo was in the process of learning to be a leader, while 4Kids Leo was pretty much always self-assured and a proven leader?

Reminded me of another plus, I like that being 3D has given his swords a little of the katana-like curve to them, vs the art style cutting corners and making them straight as they have often been depicted. I hope that (and further making them look legit) carries over into the future.

I really think this thread should be locked. Its another not-so-cleverly-disguised anti-Nick cartoon bashing thread.

Yes? Why wouldn't you? The mods already banned at least two people a week ago for it.
