PlotEdit

Hamato Yoshi is a member of the Foot Clan led by Oroku Saki during Japan's feudal period. After seeing Saki act ruthlessly, Yoshi leaves the Clan and is marked a traitor. Saki orders Yoshi's wife and four sons to be put to death. Yoshi's wife, Tang Shen, is attacked and severely wounded, and with her last breath she beseeches Yoshi to protect himself and the children. He flees with the boys and remains on the run for several years. Saki, who will later be known as Shredder, eventually finds Yoshi and his children then murders them all.

Yoshi and his sons' spirits are then reborn, reincarnated as a gray rat and four green turtles in a research laboratory called Stock Gen, owned by Baxter Stockman, a scientist who has secretly allied himself with Krang. Members of the Foot Clan break into the facility to steal an alien mutagen. The animals are taken by mistake, and when they and the stolen mutagen get lost in the sewer, they are covered with the spilled mutagen and transformed into enlightened, humanoid beings.

Yoshi, now called Splinter, remembers his past life and begins to train the turtles in the art of ninjutsu. An assistant at Stock Gen, April O'Neil, names the turtles after Renaissance artists: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Unfortunately, the seemingly trivial event which led to the creation of the Turtles and Splinter is part of an escalating conflict between several powers trying to take control of the Earth:

  • The Foot Clan, with their leader The Shredder, who has survived into the new age due to the machinations of the shape-shifting witch Kitsune;
  • the Utrom warlord Krang, who plans to terraform Earth into a new home for the last survivors of his race;
  • and a mysterious Pantheon of immortal creatures seeking to subvert humanity to their will, as they once did in bygone times.

Finding new allies as they go, the Turtles are forced to strive against enemies and save the world from total destruction as this many-fold conflict begins to spin out of control.

CharactersEdit

The series slightly re-imagines the origins of the Turtles, as well as other characters such as April O'Neil, Splinter, The Shredder, Casey Jones, and Baxter Stockman. Notably, the series, like the original Mirage version, initially gives all four Turtles red eye masks until issue #5, where Splinter gives Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo their well-known blue, purple and orange masks, respectively.

The series features characters and plot devices from all over the to-date TMNT franchise, including:

It has also introduced brand-new characters, such as:

  • Old Hob, a mutated alley cat and former enemy of Master Splinter; now founder and leader of the Mutanimals gang. Stemming from his bitter personal experience with humans, Hob intends to prepare for what he perceives an inevitable war between mutants and humans.
  • Alopex, a mutant polar fox who begins her new life as an assassin of the Foot Clan, but later becomes a friend of the Turtles. It is later revealed that she was intended to be a pawn for Kitsune, a role Alopex eventually rebelled against.
  • Woody Dirkins, a young pizzeria employee and one of the first human friends of the Turtles.
  • Harold Lillja, a middle-aged and highly paranoid, but extremely gifted inventor who befriends the Turtle family through Donatello.
  • Kitsune, a shape-shifting immortal witch, sister of the Rat King and the youngest member of the Pantheon, who has helped the Shredder through the ages (with the intention of making him the vessel for the Pantheon's long-lost patriarch, the Dragon).
  • Koya and Bludgeon, two loyal mutated henchmen of the Foot Clan: Shredder's pet reconnaissance falcon and a hammerhead shark.
  • Toshiro, an elder mentor of the Foot Clan, who is often consulted by Karai for his wisdom and serenity.
  • Lindsey Baker, a former aspiring biochemist researcher at Stock Gen, later recruited by Old Hob to create his mutant army. She is also the first TMNT character in an official storyline to be outed as a lesbian.[2]
  • Herman, a mutated hermit crab and member of Hob's Mutanimals gang with a soldier's personality and bearing who acts as the Mutanimals' "tank".
  • Sally Pride, a mutated lioness and talented vehicle operator, and a member of Hob's Mutanimals gang.
  • Kara Lewis, a young New York police officer and a friend of Michelangelo and Casey Jones. Because of her personal experiences with mutants, she is made an NYPD liaison to Agent Bishop, but she strongly disapproves of his fanatically hostile attitudes towards all mutants.
  • Ma'riell, a moderate-minded Utrom who disapproves of her brother Ch'rell's brutality and loyalty to Krang. After the Utroms' revival on Earth, she becomes their official leader.
  • Lieutenant Kleve and Corporal Montuoro, two Utrom military officers and loyal followers of Krang. After Krang is killed by Leatherhead during the conclusion of his war crime trial on Neutrino, they seek to revive Krang's loyal second-in-command, Ch'rell, from his stasis sleep.[3]
  • Chi-You, a temperamental member of the Pantheon and the template for the ancient Chinese war deity of the same name.
  • Aka, the eldest member of the Pantheon who is amicably neutral in human affairs.
  • Jennika, a young Foot Assassin. Initially loyal only to the clan than its leader, she now pledges her service to the Foot's new leader, Splinter and his sons. In time, she begins to fall in love with Casey Jones.
  • Libby Meitner, an inventor and Harold's former wife and partner, who betrayed him for her own profit and has become the chief engineer for Darius Dun and his Street Phantoms. She has since reconciled with Harold, but his concern about her welfare has caused Harold to break his ties with the Turtles.
  • Pepperoni, a baby protoceratops befriended by Raphael. Originally from the Cretaceous period, she met the Turtles during a couple of time-travelling adventures with Renet and accompanied them back to the present day, where she stays as a pet.
  • Anchovi, a young velociraptor or deinonychus picked up by the Turtles and Renet during the Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything! storyline, and later Bebop and Rocksteady's companion in the Hit the Road! miniseries.
  • Zodi, a female scorpion mutant created by Null Industries as a secret operative.
  • Maureen Lin, a young New York Police Detective who befriends Michelangelo while looking for her missing brother-in-law, who is revealed to have been killed by Wyrm.
  • Toad Baron, a hedonistic member of the Pantheon who strives to be the perfect host for anyone who enters his realm, even against their will.
  • Gothano, a Cthulhu-esque, soft-voiced member of the Pantheon who wreathes himself in a black robe.
  • Hakk-R, a cyborg bounty hunter and assassin from Dimension X, hired by Krang to dispose of accusatorial witnesses before his trail.
  • Commander Zom, a commanding Triceraton officer and General Zog's love interest, who seeks to establish a home for her people - who were artificially created from Terran triceratops DNA as a slave race for the Utroms[4] - and therefore becomes an inadvertent menace to Earth.
  • Krisa, a python mutated to serve the Null Industries.

ComicsEdit

Main seriesEdit

The main ongoing comic started in August 2011 and has released 81 issues as of April 2018.

Micro-seriesEdit

As per TMNT tradition, four one-shots (officially a mini-series) were released focusing on each turtle, with issue #4 tying into #9 of the main series. Due to the heavy popularity of the series, IDW announced another 4 issues, focusing on Master Splinter, Casey Jones, April O'Neil and the Fugitoid. Associate Editor, Bobby Curnow, says that if popularity increases, the Micro-Series will become the IDW equivalent of Mirage's Tales of the TMNT.

In April 2013, a new series of eight one-shots was started, under the title Villains Micro-series.[5] The first four issues focus on Krang, Baxter Stockman, Old Hob and Alopex. Other issues focused on Karai, Hun, Bebop & Rocksteady and Shredder.

Infestation 2Edit

The Turtles were included in the IDW crossover event Infestation 2. They appeared in one panel in the first issue of the main series. Raphael also appeared on the covers for both issues of the main series; as does Donatello on a variant cover of #1.

The Turtles were also given their own two-part miniseries. A series of strange occurrences leads the Turtles into long forgotten tunnels, where they are forced to confront the Lovecraftian creature Shub-Niggaruth and its cult of warped monstrosities.

TMNT Annual 2012Edit

Secret History of the Foot ClanEdit

A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles four-part mini-series, titled Secret History of the Foot Clan, was published from January through March 2013. The series tells the story about the original founder of the Foot.[7]

Utrom EmpireEdit

A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles three-part mini-series, titled Utrom Empire, was started in January 2014.

The X-Files: ConspiracyEdit

A one-shot, out of continuity issue was published in February 2014 as part of the mini-series crossover event The X-Files: Conspiracy. Guest characters include the Lone Gunmen and the vampire characters from the X-Files episode "Bad Blood".[8]

TMNT Annual 2014Edit

This annual edition features apprentice time mistress Renet and the Battle Nexus Tournament from the Mirage Comics volume 4/TMNT 2K3.[9] Originally slated for April 2014, the release was rescheduled to August due to production difficulties. The Turtles are taken from their home by a dimension-hopping Renet and forced to participate in an interdimensional gladiator contest which by the whim of their initiator, Councilman Nieli, has no winners; but the Turtles, the stubborn Renet and some irritated gladiators intend to change this unbearable condition for the better.

TMNT 30th Anniversary SpecialEdit

A special edition commemorating the brand's 30th anniversary. Featuring five short stories, one of them entitled "Ready Set Go!" was previously released in Hero Comics 2012;[10] the other four short stories are each set in one of the comic continuities - Mirage, Image, Archie Comics, and IDW - which arose with the franchise.

Turtles in TimeEdit

A four-issue mini-series running from June to September 2014. It was a continuation from the story in TMNT Annual 2014.[11] Some intertemporary after-effect from their trip with Renet displaces the Turtles successively into the age of the dinosaurs, medieval Japan, the age of pirates, and even the future; and in each time period they are forced to make decisions which have shaped - and still might shape - their own fate and that of the world around them.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/GhostbustersEdit

A four-issue mini-series crossover with IDW's Ghostbusters comic series, celebrating the 30th anniversaries of both franchises. It began publication in October 2014.[12] The story deals with the Turtles and their friends testing a teleportation device whose plans were provided by Professor Honeycutt. Due to a slight mishap during activation, they end up in the Ghostbusters' reality, along with an immortal, hostile creature once known as Chiyou, who seeks domination over mankind.

TMNT: MutanimalsEdit

Another four-issue mini-series dealing with the latest incarnation of the Mighty Mutanimals, published from February to June 2015. Lindsey Baker, Old Hob's human ally and scientific creator of his mutant army, is kidnapped by the security forces of the Null Group, a genetics firm headed by the fiendish Madame Null, who wishes to conquer the world's economy by creating hybrid mutants. As the Mutanimals fight to get Lindsey back, the team - and especially Hob - are forced to seriously reconsider their conduct as mutant liberators.

TMNT: Free Comic Book Day 2015Edit

A story was published as part of the May 2015 Free Comic Book Day. It was a prelude to the Vengeance story arc of the main series (#45–50).[13]

Casey & AprilEdit

A four-issue mini-series that started publishing in June 2015.[14] Its plot deals with April O'Neil and Casey Jones investigating the contents of a scroll found in the Foot Clan's archives which points out the resting place of a book dealing with a group of immortal entities called the Pantheon, which includes the Rat King and Kitsune in its ranks. During this journey, Casey and April are also forced to do some soul-searching and exploring of their budding relationship.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesEdit

DC Comics published the six-issue miniseries Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Feb.–July 2016)[15] It is the second intercompany crossover between IDW and DC Comics, after Star Trek/Green Lantern.[16] The story, out of continuity, deals with the Turtles and their master Splinter, along with Shredder and a good number of his Foot Ninjas, having been interdimensionally displaced by their common enemy Krang; an eviction which landed them in Gotham City in the DC Universe.

Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything!Edit

A weekly five-part miniseries published in June 2016.[17] In this story, Bebop and Rocksteady get their hands on Renet's time scepter and, as the simpletons they are, wreak havoc to all creation as they use the artifact to hop all over time and space, forcing the Turtles and Renet to fix the damage before it becomes irreversible.

TMNT UniverseEdit

A spin-off series similar to Mirage's Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which started publication on August 31, 2016. It serves as a narrative expansion to the main series with the introduction of crucial sideplots and additional characters.[18] The series ceased publication after 25 issues in August 2018.

TMNT: Free Comic Book Day 2017Edit

A story was published as part of the May 2017 Free Comic Book Day. It was a prelude to the Dimension X story arc of the main series (#73–75).[19]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Usagi YojimboEdit

A one-shot crossover story re-uniting the Turtles franchise with Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo, which also references Usagi's earlier encounters with the Mirage-Turtles.[20] Here, the Turtles must join forces with Miyamoto Usagi and the mystic Kakera against Usagi's sinister enemy Jei und Namazu. This issue was published in July 2017.

Dimension XEdit

A five-issue limited series which started weekly publication on August 2, 2017. Its plot is a tie-in to the main series' "The Trial of Krang" storyline (issues #73-75), dealing with the Turtles and Professor Honeycutt trying to locate several material witnesses for Krang's trial before Krang's hired assassin, Hakk-R, can get to them first.

TMNT Day SamplerEdit

A free sampler comic reviewing the series from issues #1 to #73 and Dimension X, which was distributed on October 25, 2017 by selected comic stores for the occasion of issue #75's publication.[21]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters IIEdit

In July 2017, IDW announced a sequel series to the 2014-2015 TMNT/Ghostbusters crossover, scheduled for weekly publication starting November 1, 2017.[22][23] Setting in upon the conclusion of issue #75, the Turtles are stranded in a spirit dimension where they are beset by the vengeful ghost of their late adversary Darius Dun and must get help from the Ghostbusters in order to ever stand a chance of returning home again.

Guest appearances within the story include the Dark Turtles from the 2003 series' Fast Forward season, and Shibano and an alternate version of the Punk Frogs from the 1987 TMNT cartoon series. Additionally, an action figure assortment named Ninja Ghostbusters was issued for sale parallel to the publication of the mini-series;[23][24] the Ninja Ghostbusters also have a guest appearance within the comic story itself.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IIEdit

On September 14, 2017, the impending publication of a six-issue sequel series to Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was announced, with the first two issues being planned for release on December 6 and December 20, respectively.[25] The plot deals with Donatello's desire to become a stronger fighter, which drives him into activating an interdimensional doorway to ask Batman for help. Unfortunately, this deed accidentally unleashes Bane on New York City, who loses no time uniting the Foot Clan, which is fractured by internal discord, under his rule. Batman and Robin therefore must travel to the Turtles' reality to aid their mutant friends in bringing down their common foe.

Bebop & Rocksteady Hit the RoadEdit

Another weekly five-part miniseries starring Bebop and Rocksteady which entered publication in August 2018, as a follow-up to the Destroy Everything! storyline.[26] Bebop and Rocksteady engage on a two-man roadtrip across the United States, but new and old enemies, as well as a number of hazards lying on the way - including their inexplicable transformation back into their former human forms - begin to pose a collection of serious obstacles for their plans.
