These issues offer decidedly different character origins and interpretations than the animated cartoon series. Issues 12—13 The Turtles are recruited by Cherubae to the planet of Hirobyl to battle the Malignoids, an alien, bug-like army sent out by Maligna. The battle is exploited by Stump Asteroid television. The Turtles are joined by Leatherhead, Wingnut and Screwloose, and other intergalactic wrestlers. Shredder, Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady are connected with the alien threat, and Cherubae banishes them across the universe as punishment Shredder to an Earth prison, Krang to the landfill planet Morbus, and Bebop and Rocksteady to an Eden World planet.
Cherubae is revealed to be the sorceress who mutated Leatherhead as Mary Bones, her Earth disguise, Cherubae is her true form and Leatherhead renounces his former life as helping Shredder for a while to become a wrestling idol on the Stump Asteroid, as he was seen as a monster on the Earth. They are aided in their tropical adventures by Jagwar, Dreadmon, and Man-Ray.
Upon their return to New York City, Mondo Gecko is introduced and joins the Turtles after he decides to break up with his girlfriend, Candy Fine, believing his mutation from human to human-lizard would make their relationship impossible to pursue. Having beaten Scul and Bean to a standstill, the aliens escape but not before Raphael and Mondo can sneak aboard their spacecraft. While Raphael is away fighting with the Mighty Mutanimals, the remaining Turtles meet Chu Hsi, a firefighter in Chinatown, New York City who is empowered with an ancient Warrior Dragon popularly known as "Hothead" spirit after an old man tries to help him by throwing some mystic East Asian substance into a burning house where the firefighter tries to help a child.
Together with their new ally they defeat a giant Foot robot, which is later revealed to have been a ruse by Shredder to get the Turtles to show themselves. Issues 21—25 April O'Neil is revealed to have obtained competence with the katana sword under Splinter's instruction, and together they aid the Turtles in their battles against Vid Vicious and Shredder.
Raphael returns to help defeat Shredder and aid his friends in the final fight with Krang, who has allied with Bellybomb to take possession of Shredder's body. The alien turtle Slash battles the Turtles for the first time. The Turtles remove Krang from Shredder's body and remind Shredder he owes them. Issues 26—27 This storyline explores environmental political issues. In The Keeper, an extraterrestrial spacecraft lands in Tibet , and out comes Boss Salvage who abducts rare animals from the Earth, among them the Yeti T'Pau who searches help by Splinter.
The reason is that he sees no future for them on the Earth because of pollution, but the Yeti persuades Boss Salvage that there still is hope, referring to all who are engaged in environmental politics. In In the Dark, animals are mutated after illegal industrial pollution in Innsmouth, Massachusetts and April makes a report about illegal pollution. She calls the turtles, and they also get help from the local teenage girl Beth Ann.
The mutants want revenge on humanity, and poison the food with substances that put humans in a zombie-like state. Chien Khan forces Fu Sheng to summon the Warrior Dragon if not he will use a knife to kill a young teenage girl, the street child Oyuki Mamisha who later becomes friend to April O' Neil whom Chien Khan uses to brainwash with a witchcraft and destroy a nuclear power plant and set free an interdimensional demon.
Chien Khan's recklessness regarding the nuclear plant enrages Ninjara, who decides to help the Turtles defeat him. Through meditation, Splinter is able to summon the ancient deities, Izanagi and Izanami , who defeat the demon and free the Warrior Dragon from Chien Khan's witchcraft.
The Turtles and Ninjara defeat Chien Khan and his men before he escapes in the confusion. Ninjara has a change of heart. She decides to accompany the Turtles and leave her criminal life behind.
Issues 31—36 The heroes have further adventures in Japan, the Japanese culture and religion is studied, and gangsters who illegally make money on sumo wrestling are stopped. Raphael and Ninjara become close and April and Chu Hsi share a kiss. The Turtles, Splinter and Ninjara begin a long quest on land and sea heading west while the human characters fly back to New York City.
In Tibet the heroes fight, with the help of a four armed anthropomorphic tiger named Katmandu, to protect the incarnation of a lama who happens to be Charlie Llama, an anthropomorphic llama from the evil Chinese wizard Mang-Thrasha who kidnapped Charlie Llama from his Crystal Palace.
The Whirling Dervishes and skeleton versions of them are fought. When the group finally arrive, Charlie Llama dies while a young woman gives birth to a child. Journeying through the deserts in the Middle East , the group is attacked by Al'Falqa who believes they have stolen the Black Stone of Mecca.
The sacred stone has actually been stolen by Shredder and a cat mutant, Verminator-X, from the future. The black stone is saved by the heroes before the villains disappear in a mysterious vortex-window. They also plan to kidnap Splinter, but give him back since Shredder owes the Turtles after they helped him escape from Krang.
Issue 37 Cudley the Cowlick appears in the Middle East desert before the gang and proposes to take them to Stump Asteroid for another wrestling competition.
If the Turtles participate Cudley will then drop everyone back on Earth at any location they desire, including New York. The Turtles agree, compete against each other, and Donatello emerges victorious and also defeats Cryin' Houn', here known as "El Mysterio". Issues 40—41 In issue 40, as he and his brothers sail home, Donatello is taken by a spirit to where he and his brothers encounter Christopher Columbus who reached the Americas that year.
The Turtles must defend the natives from Columbus' raids, but it all turns out to be in vain as the natives are either captured as slaves or die of disease. In 41, Raphael, while on a date with Ninjara to show her around New York City, is reminded of the Turtles battle against a mammoth mutant. The parts of the story in the present are drawn by Chris Allan, while the flashbacks are drawn by Ken Mitchroney, who drew the earlier issues of the comic in the era the flashbacks take place in.
Don explains how in the future, some time after Splinter's death because of old age, global warming has melted the polar ice caps and left most of New York City under water. The present-day Turtles have already seen this earlier, after a mistake by Cudley the Cowlick after their first visit to the Stump Asteroid, and said it was a possible future.
This created a rat problem but Don invented robot traps to eliminate the rats, much to the Rat King's chagrin. His robots won Don fame and wealth, which he used to fund his company Turtleco, along with a talented young cat mutant named Manx. Manx began to enhance himself as a cyborg named Verminator-X, obsessed with becoming immortal.
Soon he and Don were archenemies. Verminator-X, the shark mutant Armaggon, and a time displaced version of the Shredder from issue 36 broke into Turtleco, kidnapped the future Mike and Leo and stole Don's experimental time slip generator. When Raph attempted to stop them, his eye was blown out by one of Armaggon's missiles.
Don built another machine in order to get reinforcements in the past. Armaggon works on powering the machine with Adolf Hitler 's brain, the Roswell Alien's bones and the white stone of mecca so he and his cohorts can rule all of space and time.
Splinter, Ninjara and the six Turtles ambush the bad guys with a time slip, but Armaggon escapes, taking Leo as a hostage, into his machine with both Raphs and the present-day version of Don in pursuit. Luckily, the Turtles have a surprise ally in Merdude, tricking Verminator-X to fire his blaster, destroying the wall and letting sea water come in to free Future Leo and Mike which turns the tide in favor of the Turtles.
Don and the two Raphs pursue Armaggon in a mystical swamp land some local fairies call Thantia. The two Raphs use their shared training to kick Armmagon over a waterfall. They recover Leo and escape through a time hole created by Future Don, but leave Armaggon stranded in Thantia.

A busy rehash of IDW turtle events, which is too much like a flashback comic. I also didn't like the art. These turtles look too skinny, scrawny even. I doubt I'll give the series a go. It seems that everyone is changing their origin stories these days. One person found this helpful. Can't go wrong with a good Turtles story.
The artwork and story telling is great. It always has been good. The 80's cartoon ruined their image, this is revamping it. They've become true heroes. More turtle fun like the simple art style and the humor as always great read looki g forwardto more from this series!
