I'm not usually one of those people that gets uptight about origin shifts and continuity, but this is kind of drastic, no?

TMNT to get new origina in Michael Bay reboot

Aliens? C'mon...

“These turtles [in the reboot] are from an alien race, and they’re going to be tough, edgy, funny, and completely lovable.”

The true origin was such an infringement on Marvels rights that they would have put a stop to it if they ever dreamed it would amount to anything.
A truck carrying radio-active waste hurtles thru the streets and a blind man walks into its path, only to be pushed aside at the last moment by a young boy who is struck in the face by a cannister.....
Stick- Splinter
Hand- Foot.

How far do you think this project would get today ?
Marvel took Dave Sim to task for using the Moon-Roach and Wolver-Roach,. How they allowed this escapes me.

He should just change it from turtles to hamsters.

Market research from pets stores show hamsters outsell turtles 8 to 1 thus translating box office dollars growth over a bajillion dollars.

How is this an infringement.. I don't see it

Marvel Never sued over wolveroach they just sent a letter and it never went further

I never said they sued him. I said they took him to task. Their lawyers sent a Cease and Desist letter and Sim stopped using the character so no lawsuit was needed.


DC Comics won lawsuits agianst both Captain Marvel and Wonder-Man for copyright infringement. Neither was anything near what Eastman and Laird did with the Turtles. Thats why even they toned down the origin story as the books got popular.
