Funny how this very issue had an explicit Battle Nexus reference in the first few pages, innit...?

I dunno about the battle Nexus. I mean, isn't it just a glorified tournament arc?

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.

Well, yeah? A tournament arc with some shady things going on behind the scenes like what happened in the 4kids series is what makes a good arc.

Agreed. Don't do it.

Yeah, I feel like a battle tournament works a lot better as a story on an animated show. The Battle Nexus we got in the 2014 Annual was enough. On to bigger and better things.

Yeah, I'm going to agree.

Tournament arcs are unbearable enough as they are shonnen series, leaving it as a special is fine.

Bring on the Battle Nexus! There are plenty of ways it could be done in an interesting fashion!

No need for a Battle Nexus in the ongoing, but I do feel like the Annual was just a tease of sorts. Maybe a four issue arc in Universe would be work

I'd be okay with that. Or maybe even a silly weekly-for-a-month mini, though Bobby has said that we shouldn't expect more of those in 2018 at least.

Having grown up reading Dragon Ball as a child, as well as having a nostalgic fondness for the 4Kids show, I would not be against a Battle Nexus arc in the slightest.

Sure, tournaments are mostly just an excuse for action in filler but boy, aren't they the best kind of filler?

Looking back at Zenter's poor decision making with the Triceraons, I can't help but wonder what it would mean for Trib.

Being the only child of a ruler whose actions would cause far more harm than he intends - or is oblivious to how much he may or might cause - and will only continue a cycle of political imbalance, and has a chance to redeem her family by behaving differently from her parent's actions, or make things worse by continuing them.

Which sounds...familiar...

But seriously, I would love to see Krang and Trib have a very long conversation and for Krang to point out those similarities once Zenter starts tripping over his robes. Pulling the ol' "We're not so different, you and I."

Trib, however, seems to have a little more nerve than Krang does and probably is capable of redeeming her father for the better should things go wrong. I'm tempted to peg it on having the influence of a mother that's actually around, which is something Krang doesn't have and I am not letting go of that.

Can't wait to hear Leatherhead's testimony. Should be some great dialogue!

Here's my full summary and review of TMNT #74 at TMNT Entity.

Really appreciated the pacing on this issue. I've personally been dying for the courtroom drama and cross-examinations, but I can see how that might be too wordy and dry for some readers. They found a great way to balance in a lot of action without shortchanging the trial aspect.

Oh jeez it took until now to come up with something to call this storyline/mini storyline should it happen.

The Krangshank Redemption.

Which is also an option should he escape on his own.
