How do you think Leonardo's and Michelangelo's sibling relationship will go?

In other words, how do you think it will develop?

On February 1st 2018, the Nickelodeon crew unveiled a humongous amount of new information regarding the upcoming cartoon, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Out of all of the various facts, however, I was intently focused on this one:

(My Thoughts: The execution could go in several directions. Maybe Mikey will take his comedic quirks after his inspiring older brother. Maybe he will be inspired by Leo's charm/ charisma. Maybe he will even try to emulate Leo's snarkiness.

The possibilities are endless!

Will there be meaningful character interactions and dialogue? Will they go through vital character development that would change the show's perspective of these characters? Will they dwell on their own personal advantages and flaws?

If the above questions seem to difficult to answer, then how do you want their relationship to go?

Discuss your thoughts and opinions below.

Right now... I'm feeling a Leo that's protective of Mikey, esp possibly from Raph, and yet an instigator using Mikey (for pranks or whatever)...who then does a two-faced about-face and protects Mikey once the pot is stirred. Though I hope I'm wrong, because that sucks.

However it goes, it isn't going to be what I generally enjoy about those two and sounds less interesting. Not unless Leo does a lot of growing up.

Typically, in many other iterations, I love seeing the [normally] oldest and youngest brothers together sometimes. They're such polar opposites as people, and probably don't really get each other all that well, that it doesn't happen all that often, but it's nice to see them work together and use each other's strengths. Sad that this will be lost. And will miss that Leo and Donnie are normally more alike... (I'm almost sad then that it leaves Donnie with no brother who is somewhat more like him, but then I recalled now that Donnie's personally probably isn't going to be the same either. *sigh*)

I look forward to that aspect of the show especially and believe it will most likely work.

Don looks like he will be mature and busy with his tech work while Raph will have the responsibility of leadership so it only seems natural that the two childlike turtles of the group will highly get along and even have a best friends sort of dynamic.

I'm interested to see how this goes. But I do prefer the older stoic Leo with the younger and wild-like Mikey. They weren't the closest of brothers but there was always a form of mutual respect. And I liked that. It's similar to the relationship between Donnie and Raph.

Agree. The Brains and the Brawn. The Serious and the Silly.

Then the two deeper, thinking, smarter, little more reserved types. And the two more wild child, in your face, dive in and do it now types.

The natural dynamics that have developed slowly in the past 30+ years are pretty deep and organic and feel natural. Vs whatever shoehorned changes this next one has tried to make to disrupt that.
