Annihilation: Earth![]

Initially perceived as hostile for being a Kraang, Bishop explains his background as an Utrom, and how the Utroms are a peaceful group of aliens who departed ways with the Kraang and how they oppose the Kraang Hive Mind. Bishop, who uses a Norman suit, explains that he was the original designer of the Normans. He also reveals that Kraang Subprime was himself once an Utrom, but defected to the Kraang. Bishop wins over the Turtles' trust and helps them fight against the simultaneous invasions of both the Kraang and the Triceraton Empire.

It was later revealed that Bishop had escaped from the Triceraton attack on the Technodrome by riding Leatherhead to shore. He rejoined the Turtles to help them disable the Heart of Darkness. However, the Triceratons destroyed Bishop's suit and he scuttled off. He is later sucked into the Heart of Darkness along with the entire Earth, except for the Turtles, April and Casey, who were saved by the Fugitoid, the latter of whom was later revealed to have been called for help thanks to a distress signal sent by Bishop before the Heart of Darkness was activated.

The War for Dimension X[]

Bishop encounters the Turtles again, but this time, in Dimension X. Given how this encounter takes place months before "Annihilation: Earth!", this is technically the first time Bishop meets the Turtles.
