The internet is on fire after the news that Michael Bay dared to change the origin story of the Ninja Turtles, which will claim that they are in fact aliens. Rabble rabble rabble!
I hate Michael Bay as much as the next guy, but to me this fell into the “really not a big deal” column. No, they don’t have to be Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles. You can still mutate in space. And really, was their old origin story that compelling?
To be honest, I didn’t even know what it was until I watched this video, which is from the TMNT 25th anniversary which finally explains where the turtles came from. Any less ridiculous than crash landing from space? Not really, but apparently everyone thinks this is butchering their nostalgia. What do you think?
