Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagines the characters from their usual archetypes. Jagged-shelled Raphael (voiced by Omar Miller) is a snapping turtle wielding twin tonfas as his weapons, and is now the group’s oldest brother and leader; Leonardo (Ben Schwartz) is a red-eared slider, using an ōdachi sword with his irreverent charm and rebel heart; Donatello (Josh Brener) is a soft-shell turtle, sporting a tech-bo staff and his usual skills as a mechanical genius and technical wizard; and Michelangelo (Brandon Mychal Smith) is a box turtle, arming himself with a kusari-fundo and a wild, imaginative attitude and skateboarding skills. Along for the adventure is the Turtles’ most trusted ally, April O’Neil (Kat Graham), a street savvy native New Yorker; and Splinter (Eric Bauza), father figure and sensei to the Turtles. WWE Superstar John Cena lends his voice as villain, Baron Draxum, an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants.

Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
