Here is some fan art I found using google. (I did find a better one of April and Irma but I'm not sure if the mods would allow me to post it).

Spoiler:


I did not use any search terms like "kiss" for any of these, just the names and the name of the franchise. Guess which was the hardest to find some shipping art of?
Spoiler:
Yes of course it was the two male characters, not as hard as I expected it would be just using Google but it did yield the least amount of shipping images. Granted, one them isn't human and that might have something to do with it but that doesn't seem to stop a lot of shippers otherwise.

Spoiler:
The second hardest was April and Irma. I guess that despite the FW cartoon being "Teh thing evrywun noows aboot!!!", nobody really cares about the characters of that show unless they happened to own the toys. Irma may in fact be less known and popular than Karai.

Why wouldn't Irma be less known than Karai? Karai has been back to back in the past THREE TMNT movies.

True and I don't really have an argument against that, Karai has far more prevalence in the franchise than Irma and Irma wasn't exactly compelling back in the day.

It's just that I felt the need to clarify that Karai could be more well known and/or popular than characters in the FW cartoon because... Well... Quite a few people here have a problem accepting that the FW cartoon and 90's movies may not remain the most well known or popular iterations of the franchise, or even remain more influential in the grand scheme.

Ironically with all the 'SHOCK' and 'AWE' of Jennika locking lips with Fanfic Pork Gal, I get 0 reaction out of it. Sure, first lesbian kiss, but it's fanfic characters.

To tell you the truth, if the last page was April and Baxter locking lips (and with it looking like April herself initiated or is totally into it), THAT would have made my jaw drop. THAT would have made me anxious to see the next issue to find out WTF is going on.

And the irony is they're both straight characters, but it is their character and their motivations and animosity that make that look completely out of left field.

Jennika barely had a personality, and Poker Gal is still an unknown character no one has any real reason to care about. With April and Baxter so many questions are raised, what's happening here? Is April betraying the Turtles? Who's playing who? With Jen and Poker, nada.

Or ok, if you want to keep it gay, then Jen and April. That would have been just as shocking I believe, to have the TMNT postergal come out as gay in such a shocking fashion. But a made up fanfic mutant girl no one's ever heard of? Naw.

They should have had April and Angel hook-up if they wanted something to create lasting interest.
