TNTM: Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles team up in new comic book

Not since 1998 have these two powerhouse ninja groups crossed over.  In the fourth episode of Power Rangers in Space named Shell Shock, they meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the series Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation.

In that episode one of the Power Ranger’s enemies brainwashed the Turtles to infiltrate and take over the ship.  An electric storm erases the brainwashing and the Power Rangers return the Turtles to New York.

BOOM! Studios has worked out a deal with Hasbro, IDW, and Nickelodeon to bring these to awesome ninja teams together again, but this time in a comic book.  This team up of the Ninja Turtles and the Power Rangers will be a five issue mini-series called Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The premise for the mini-series is Green Power Ranger, Tommy Oliver, goes missing.  The Power Rangers track him down to New York.  When they find him they discover he has teamed up with Shredder.

Luckily they also run into the Ninja Turtles and find they have a common enemy. If you are fan of either franchise you will definitely want to check this mini-series out.  Issue #1 is scheduled to be on the shelves December 4th.

TNTM: Top 5 Ninja Turtles characters

Ninja Turtles Top 5 characters

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around for a long time.  They have been in nearly every media such as comic books, trade paperbacks, special collector’s editions, toys, cartoons, movies, etc.  With their longevity there have been a lot of characters introduced in the main comic book and through cross-over story-lines from other comic book titles.  Jack and I compile our Top 5 list of favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle characters, excluding Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Donatello.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were first published in 1984 by Mirage Studios. The Turtles started from a humorous drawing sketched out by Kevin Eastman.   Eastman and his friend, Peter Laird, went back and forth trying to outdo each other on the concept of Ninja Turtles. They decided to make a comic book based on the characters they developed.  They used money from a tax refund along with a loan from Eastman’s uncle.  They self-published a single-issue comic intended to parody four of the most popular comics of the early 1980s: Daredevil ,  New MutantsCerebus, and Ronin.

The Turtles big break into the mainstream market happened when they met licensing agent, Mark Freedman. Freedman introduced them to wider merchandising opportunities. Their biggest deals were for a line of action figures from Playmates Toys and a cartoon seriesWhile the animated TV series (10 seasons) was more light-hearted, the comic-book series continued in a much darker and grittier tone.

The original movie featured the Ninja Turtles and Splinter being portrayed by actors in partially animatronic suits created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. The film became one of the most successful independent films.  That movie spawned two sequels as well as inspiring a three-dimensional animated film set in the same continuity. After the end of the cartoon series a live-action series in the vein of the films was created in 1997. The series was called Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation and introduced a fifth female turtle called Venus de Milo. The series was largely unsuccessful and was canceled after one season.

The property lay dormant until 2003, when a new animated TV series also entitled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles began to air on Fox Box. The series storyline stuck much closer to the original Mirage comic book series but was still less violent. It lasted for seven seasons and 156 episodes, ending in February 2009.

On October 21, 2009, it was announced that cable channel Nickelodeon had purchased all of Mirage’s rights to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles property. Mirage retains the rights to publish 18 issues a year.  The Ninja Turtles were brought back to the movie screen with a modernized/revamped look.  The newer movies are hit or miss with the older crowd that remembers the original Turtles.  The younger crowd that has no memory of the prior Ninja Turtles, overwhelmingly like the new movies.

TNTM: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (TMNT) Universe

The Ninja Turtle Universe has grown exponentially from the original issue #1.  No longer is it just the Turtles, Shredder, Splinter, and the Hand.  Now you have enough other characters to support a second ongoing comic title… which is exactly what IDW is doing!

This new series will tell stories focused on various supporting characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle world. Characters named by series editor Bobby Curnow include Casey Jones, Fugitoid, Old Hob, April, Nobody, Harold, and Baxter Stockman.  He also teased we’ll get a couple brand new villains.  “Essentially over the past four-plus years our TMNT world has grown too large to contain to one monthly title.

There are dozens of fan-favorite characters. In short, we need a second title to do the TMNT Universe justice,” said Curnow. “With two series we can flesh out these supporting characters more and devote greater time to the Turtles themselves and expanding their world. Our aim is to tell stories that are self-contained but complementary to the original ongoing TMNT title.”

Paul Allor, who has written previous TMNT comics Turtles in Time and Mutanimals, told us what to expect from the story. “This is a classic siege story in the vein of Rio Bravo and Assault on Preinct 13. It’s a brutal, action-packed siege story packed with villains old and new. It’s also very driven by the relationship between these four brothers,” Allor said.

Issue #1 of TMNT Universe has already hit the shelves and is selling very well.  Run to your local comic book store and pick up your copy now before it is too late.
