Venus and April: uncanny similarities

okay okay...HEAR ME OUT!

I saw someone on tumblr mention this.....That April is starting to seem alot like Venus De Milo from the next mutation.


1) both have weird "universe" powers (April's psychic abilities, Venus's magic yin yang/chi powers)
2) they both have turtles crushing on them.
3) they both are considered the 5th turtle
4) both have a tessen weapon
5) both are kunoichi
6) and now...I guess both are mutants.

Although both have different personalities.

so what do you think? kinda weird....

After this thread sits for a bit...it will begin to feel as if thousands of TMNT geeks suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

In terms of certain aspects of the character you said already, then i agree, they are similar.

In terms of personality, then they don't have much in common.

Venus was never a proper Shinobi thought. Shinobi is just another (the proper) word for ninja. While in NM, Venus was a Chinese Shaman wielding magic, wrongfully labeled "Shinobi" in the show.

Funny fact. April, the month in Roman culture, is dedicate to the month of Venus.

I noticed this strange similarity too. And it scares me.

Now I know why I'm not a fan of this version of April...

At least April hasn't taken down the Shedder by herself or is the Turtles long lost sister. (That award goes to Karai)

yea...I've been feeling kinda ambivalent toward 2012 April lately and her role....I'm not sure if this similarity is the reason, but alot of the problems I have with Venus are slowly showing up in April...and it makes me afraid for April's character.....

I honestly thought April was to become Venus for quite a while.

I do see the similarities but I still do like 2k12 April a little more then Venus. Also, at least with April, being the " 5th turtle" isn't literal and completely retcons the Turtles origins.

I agree that April is a better character than Venus.

but for me...not by much.

she does get bonus points for not being an actual ninja turtle, and having more personality than Venus.

She could be Leo's twin brother. I always wonder why the heck they choose blue color for her bandana as Leo's already blue. Why not go for the barbie pink, or yellow, or something.

But eh, she's excessive garbage anyway and is forever dead now thankfully.
