tmnt-2016-55-alopex

For someone who hasn’t kept up with the series in recent months, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #55 offers a good opportunity to catch up with the Heroes in a Half-Shell and some very big changes in their lives. Victorious over the Shredder, Splinter and his sons have taken back control of New York and control of the Foot Clan. All seems well for most of the Turtles, although Michelangelo has decided life among his former enemies isn’t for him.

tmnt-the-fourfold-trap

Divide and conquer is the theme of “The Fourfold Trap” as a fully-brainwashed Karai (Kelly Hu) leads the Shredder‘s (Kevin Michael Richardson) forces to separate and capture each of the Turtles. Placing them each in a specially-designed trap, Karai awaits the inevitable arrival of Splinter (Hoon Lee). The traps are a bit goofy, as well as deadly, furthering the episode’s (and show’s) theme of the Turtles being stronger when they work together which eventually leads to their escape.

tmnt-the-creeping-doom

It’s all Mikey‘s (Greg Cipes) fault! Goofing off in Donatello‘s (Rob Paulsen) lab, Michaelangelo not only exposes Donatello to a chemical that slowly makes Donnie dumber but his actions also result in the creation of not one, not two, but three villains for the rest of the Turtles to band together to fight. Accidentally releasing the Creep who in turn uses the remains of Snakeweed to create Son of Snakeweed, the Turtles barely manage to defeat the pair only to see them combine into the monstrous Creepweed.

tmnt-attack-of-the-mega-shredder

Returned to New York from their travels in time, the adventures of the Turtles get no less bizarre when they attempt to use stealth to sneak into Shredder‘s (Kevin Michael Richardson) lair. Despite Donatello‘s (Rob Paulsen) latest invention, the team’s first attempt ends in only getting Raphael (Sean Astin) injured and drawing Splinter‘s (Hoon Lee) ire. Leonardo (Seth Green) and Michelangelo‘s (Greg Cipes) second attempt only creates more trouble as their capture inadvertently causes the creation of the gigantic Mega Shredder (think a Godzilla creature but with more Picasso thrown in) the Turtles need their pals to help take down.

tmnt-48-stockman

In an action-heavy issue Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #48 moves the title one-step closer to its concluding 50th issue as Splinter, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Robo-Donatello fight for their lives against the seemingly never-ending supply of Mousers and Flyborgs controlled by the Shredder and Baxter Stockman. Even with the arrival of back-up in Alopex and Angel things look bleak for our heroes.

tmnt-turtles-in-time

“Turtles in Time” reimagines another familiar face for fans of previous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles incarnations on both television and in comics when Time Master Apprentice Renet (Ashley Johnson) arrives from the future to enlist the Turtles’ help in dealing with the evil Savanti Romero (Graham McTavish). As with previous version of the character, Renet is presented as an impulsive teenage fangirl of the Turtles whose help she will need to stop the rogue Time Master from rewriting time itself.

tmnt-return-to-nyc-dvdThe latest single-disc collection of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles includes the group’s final adventure before returning to New York and the first six episodes of their return following the Kraang takeover and transformation of their home. The set primarily focuses on the Turtles working to put their family back together and reclaiming the streets of New York from the Kraang.

The episodes include Casey Jones‘ (Josh Peck) attempt to prove his worth, the two-part “Battle for New York,” the Turtles’ search for Karai (Kelly Hu), and the long-awaited introduction of the newly mutated Rocksteady (Fred Tatasciore) and Bebop (J.B. Smoove).

Even with Rocksteady and Bebop finally making an appearance the set lacks a real stand-out episode that is a must-have. That said, the episodes are all solid and fans collecting these single-disc collections (and don’t mind the continued lack of extras) should still enjoy themselves.
