Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.

Jay is a mutant poison dart frog who first appeared in TMNT #112. One of Mutant Town's mutagen bomb victims, he was originally an ordinary human in New York City. After mutating in the event, he was shunned by every human he thought loved him, including his mother, his boyfriend and his aunt. Since his skin itself is venomous to the touch, he wears a hoodie and tries hard to avoid physical contact with other people, adjusting to a new life where it's possible he may never be able to touch another person again. At one point, he accidentally poisoned Michelangelo during a heated moment. Michelangelo was not angered by this incident and assured him that there was no hard feelings. He eventually became a member of Jennika's band Created in Darkness.
