Platinum Dunes’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Feature Alien Origin | Superhero Hype.

I’ll admit, I’m a big kid.  I grew up on great shows: Transformers, G.I. Joe, Buggs Bunny, and of course, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Please note that the name includes the word MUTANT.  In yet another reboot of this movie series, Michael Bay has announced that he is not going with the original origin for the Turtles: the mutagenic Ooze that mutates them into half-turtle, half-human ass kickers.  (Notice how many times I used a form of the word MUTANT?)  No, instead, he’s going with an alien origin………

Why, I ask you….why!?!?  They are Teenage MUTANT Ninja Turtles.  Not Teenage ALIEN Ninja Turtles.  What’s the point?  Of all the things to change, why change something that’s in the fucking title!?!?  Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go cry in the dark clutching my Donatello action figure.
