Dude I would love a reference to Bugman in the new show!

Make the Mirage superheroes the comic book characters Mikey reads about.

So you skipped the important eps he was in, or stuff like the Christmas episode? What.

I started skipping them around the time of that episode when Michaelangelo went out as Turtle Titan, and hung out with them. I know it seemed like an important episode (for them, anyway) but I just couldn't bear them anymore.

I'm not a fan of the Superman ripoffs. Not Silver Sentry, nor Hyperion im the Marvel universe. And while between Marvel and DC there's this back and forth of blatant ripoff characters, I don't feel TMNT is a place where they should be.

Or at least I don't feel they've been done well enough to keep me interested.

No, let TMNT be the focus.

He retreated to control his anger, so at least he had a reason not to show up all the time.

personally, i'd like the Turtles to be the Superheroes, y'know.

Like either the japanese ones or the ones from the superhero dimension in 2K3.



I liked the fact that for the most part, TMNT are street level heroes figuratively and literally, even though they get a few massive adventures here and there (like Daredevil).

Superturtles with powers on an alternate Earth are totally OK.

Any superhero that exists in the world of the TMNT must exist to advance plot potential of the TMNT.

In a universe where mutagen ooze exists, it's perfectly logical for me to believe in the possibility of meta-humans or extraterrestrial beings. However, it makes little sense for these super beings to operate in public, so long as the TMNT still feel compelled to live in hiding and work within the shadows as ninja.

The obvious problem with incorporating superheroes with super powers into TMNT is that it ultimately undermines the Turtles who don't have super powers.

I think a cool idea to incorporate superheroes into the tmnt lore is to make the turtles live in a reality where all humans have superhuman powers while the turtles don't have any and just have to use their ninja skills to defend themselves.

They make friends with few of the superheroes, but have to stay in the shadows because the vast majority will disintegrate them upon sight.

I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue. Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Or you can have some episodes where the turtles are transported to an alternate Earth full of superhumans.

Now that is a good idea. It does raises a couple of story possibilities.

How about this:

When a portal malfunctions, the main-turtles find themselves on an alternate Earth where humans have superpowers. The main-turtles assist their counterparts fighting Shredder, who on this Earth has superpowers, before trying to make their way home.

No. Not humans with super-powers working as public heroes, anyway. Spiritual beings (Radical), mutated and clearly inhuman elementals (Muckman, etc), powered armors (Nobody, Eric Sachs), and even mostly-human mutants (Ravenwood) are okay in small doses and without too much of a public prescience. Unless we're going for a "mutant exposure" arc, like with Nick Muckman.
