April O'Neil only did a little when she first time faced Dregg and atleast the Turtles still use their ninjutsu skills to defend themselves in outer space.
Well, I guess she wasn't too crazy about charging straight into an unknown being. Maybe she was just playing it safe and just fire her weak laser?
April wasn't as skilled as the others in that time. Also, I don't think she wanted to touch the space creatures.
Why would she WANT to? She doesn't know where those things have been! They could be acidic for all she knows!!
What do you think?
