What about Radical's design? In a black and white comic, it looks like she's basically running around, flying around completely naked.

I'm sure she's completely naked under that full-coverage body suit.

You'll have to forgive not being familiar with her as a superior...

Seriously? I do like that idea more. Though, sad to say, given marketing, I can see why it hasn't been a thing in the TMNT stuff I'm more familiar with...

Hey, you guys arenít the only ones.
Iíve always liked Pimiko and wanted to see her appear in another version. I liked the relationship that was starting between her and Raph, and I would love to see another version of her actually get to interact with her father (thereíd definitely be some interesting conflict there).
(Also, am I the only one who actually sorta likes her costume? Yeah, itís pretty ridiculous and over-the-top, but this was the 90ís after all)

As for Karai, she was definitely a much more interesting character in Mirage than Shredder ever was. And she absolutely rocked in City At War.
Itís a shame that every version since then has made her into Shredderís underling, when itís quite the opposite.

Not sure, if I am keen on this idea.
How about creating some new characters instead changing the old ones?

I've read up a little on the original and various versions so far but I didn't realise karai was a superior and also older than Shredder, course if that's how people got to know her I can see why they'd like that still, I don't think I would like Karai too old. I've read about her being a high ranking foot member, Shredders adoptive daughter and I think even adopted granddaughter (I guess he was very old in whatever version that was)

I didn't realise Shredder had a real daughter, did they decide just to mix the 2 characters so came up with a younger Karai who was not a true daughter?

So, Shredder was killed early in Mirage, was he? When did he first make a come back as the main villain?
