As the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fight off Old Hob‘s army of Mousers, General Krang meets with his scientist and we learn what Krang and Hob are really after. They aren’t trying to destroy the turtles, they just want to get their hands on Splinter.
It turns out Splinter is the only pure mutant specimen that Krang can use to develop his own mutant army. Unlike the turtles and Hob who were accidentally exposed to the mutigen, Splinter was given carefully controlled injections making him the perfect prototype. With the turtles distracted by the Mousers, Hob is able to make off with their master.
As the turtles fight for their lives Casey and April have a heart-to-heart after training and April’s story of ninjas and a rat named Splinter leads to an introduction that the young woman will never forget.
Tons of action, a little more insight into Krang’s plans, and April finally meeting the turtles. What more could you want? Best of the week.
