Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles!?!?!?!?

How could Michael Bay do this?

The turtles are ALIENS??? I already hated Michael Bay, but this is just taking things to a new extreme. He already screwed up Transformers.

Good deals with larzly, thefpb2, 7 Strings of Hate, and Adam of Angels

He's got a vendetta against 80s cartoons, he said so.

If you're going to 'like' my posts, give me some rep instead.

I dunno... I think that the original origin story really didn't need to be fixed, unless Michael Bay thinks that the mutagen exposure thing smacks of an environmentalist allegory that will alienate the middle-America demographic.

This is very very wrong.

EDIT: Yes I'm aware of their more dark violent comic origins of the Turtles, but I was raised with 80s cartoons so I'm drawing the line with Michael Bay's abomination.

i second, third, fourth, and infinity this

i like the original ninja turtles
i think i still have a couple of the older episodes on VHS (yes, ancient technology these days) as well as a set of ninja turtles window shades

guess Mr. Bay has given me another reason as to why i don't watch a lot of movies this generation

and so help me if he tries this with any of the other classic 'toons like Thundercats, Swat Kats, Earthworm Jim, He-Man, and a lot of others i cant think of at the moment

If I should ever meet Michael Bay in person, I will punch him in his face. With a sledgehammer.

The thing that annoys me the most is that IDW's newest launch of TMNT re-wrote their origins (it's VERY realistic and plausible) and instead of adapting that, he chose ALIENS? C'mon.

Here's the new story for anyone who's curious :

Splinter was the father of the four turtles and they all lived in feudal Japan, along with Oroku Saki who was the head of an opposing clan. Oroku Saki wanted Splinter's wife and one day tried to take his wife but she refused so he killed her, and following that the two clans went to war where they died. Following this, they were re-incarnated to their respective animal forms, the four sons as turtles and Splinter as the leader rat, and they were lab experiments under Professor Stockman where April O'Neill was an intern vs. a reporter. Casey Jones still retains his role as a vigilante, although he's in high school I believe, Krang is a General from outer space who operates a private security form as it's shadowed figure head and it's really a quite genius cover. The Foot soldiers are a gang in New York and are based on the old clan from Japan hence why Shredder is leading them in his re-incarnation.

honestly, if i co-created something that a lot of people enjoyed through the 80s and 90s, and got a call from someone wanting to "recreate" the series with a few (bone breaking) twists. then my gut feeling would tell me just to walk out the door and never look back

Again, I'm probably mixing up minor details in it but that's how it goes. The new comic is fantastic and I'm enjoying the .... out of it so
