Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Go WAR on Mutanimals
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles # 119 by Kevin Eastman, Tom Waltz, Sophie Campbell, Nelson Daniel, Ronda Pattison, Bobby Curnow, and Shawn Lee, on sale now.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have just overcome the longest and deadliest era in their history, and it couldn’t have happened at a better time. Mutant Town’s first election is fast approaching and many would rather see it crumble than prosper. Sadly, a rally leading up to the election leads to a situation the Turtles have been trying to avoid for years: all-out war with the Mutanimals.
The rally the Turtles were preparing for has finally arrived, and while the mood is upbeat, there is too much at stake for the heroes not to be on high alert. At the rally, hundreds of mutants gathered to make their voices heard, with Sally Pride leading the pack with her charismatic calls for justice and freedom. Sally has both seen and been the target of terror from Old Hob and his Mutanimal. Even though she once counted herself among their members, she cannot stand them anymore, even occupying the same space as she and the people she loves. Turns out the Mutanimals overheard Sally’s concerns loud and clear, and they’ve just offered their rebuttal with a hail of bullets.
Despite several turtles and even Oroku Saki himself leaping across the rooftops to take down the snipers before they can open fire, there aren’t enough of them to stop the bullets from flying. As Michelangelo struggles to bring innocent passers-by to safety, Mutanimal police officers on the ground close in.
Chaos spreads within seconds, and the Turtles see no way out except retreat. However, they have trained their students too well to stand up to those who would bring Mutant Town to their knees. Much to Leonardo’s surprise, the mutants who studied under his tutelage stand firm against the Mutanimals of Old Hob, fully prepared to defend their home.
This fight has been a long time coming, and it is sure to be the most important that has ever been fought in Mutant Town. Not only is their home’s reputation at stake, but the mutant’s fights alongside the turtles are also battling to free themselves from the violent criminals who have plagued their streets for far too long.
Depending on how this battle unfolds, the more peaceful inhabitants of Mutant Town may not even have to wait until Election Day to get rid of the Mutanimals once and for all.
