It's really the accessorizing that bothers me most.
It's weird because this idea keeps coming back and I'm not sure anyone ever really wanted it? There's also the 50 different times they became superheros, the anime/manga with the super mutations, and if you expand it to just a plain "let's screw with the turtles" you can count Raphael and Donatello in late Mirage and perhaps even the Image changes.

Somehow the franchise seems to have a hard-on for screwing with the TMNT's physical states, and as a long time fan I don't feel like that was ever really anything I wanted to see. Perhaps I'm alone on that, but it's so strange.

Also, I don't know that will be the case, I pulled it from my ass because it seems like something that could happen.
This is basically how Shredder worked in the leaked script.
