At the same restaurant where Stobbs was ordering his favorite dish, lobster, the Turtles and Ray Fillet were getting pizza. Stobbs drank water whilst holding a lobster and mutated into a giant anthropomorphic version of the crustacean. Going berserk, Stobbs ran about to free the restaurant's lobsters from their tank. Ray and the Turtles try to stop Stobbs, but he is too large and strong for them to corral him. Ray ends the fight by reasoning with the lobster mutant and offering to show him the sea.
Powers and abilities
- Investigation and reporting: As a human, Stobbs was a good enough reporter that Shredder felt threatened by his writings on the city's crimes to have him dosed with mutagen.
- Mutant lobster physiology: Lobsterdude enjoyed several advantages of his anthropomorphic lobster body, even without having any experience in using it.
- Shell: Lobsterdude's shell protected him from most physical attacks.
- Claws: Lobsterdude had large, heavy claws as natural weapons.
- Strength: Ray Fillet and the Turtles were unable to stop Lobsterdude with their own strength and Ray had to resort to reason to end his rampage.
