  • I mean, a mutant ice-cream and a mutant pizza I can handle (I think). But when the have a mutant CAR, that is a bit much don't you think? I don't mean to complain, but Nickelodeon is kinda pushing the limits of these mutations.

    • well I think there are too much mutant there too....

      Everyone becomes a mutant is start to get boring... I rather want to know better the ones we already have...

    • I mean, how can a car actually mutate? Pizzaface and Ice Cream Kitty for example are somehow razonable as they were living organic beings as humans and cats, but a car is not a living organic being, I hope they have an explanation for this one.

    • Dynamozx05: There is precedent in the TMNT multiverse, also involving Donatello. Donatello (Image) not only became a cyborg for all of volume 3, but the metal and electronics joined with his biology on a cellular level through mutation because of the mutagen in his own blood. This gave Donnie interesting new abilities such as the ability to shape-shift and split himself into two, with the other "him" being a remote-control clone. By the end of volume 3 though, his body finally started to reject the mutation because his mutant healing factor had been regenerating his broken body all that time, even completely regrowing his shell (which had been crushed and destroyed in the beginning of volume 3), and with Baxter Stockman's help he found a way to fully separate himself from the mutated metal to prevent the rejection from killing him. So yes, mutations just as weird or weirder have been written over the years. :)

      But albeit including unorganic elements, Donnie himself is organic, another good example of "cyborg-mutation" is Chong/Cockroach Terminator but once again, the mutation involved a living organism in the mix, unlike the Speed Demon, who is entirely a car.

    • Agree it's a bit much if it's mutating anything now. Although... the car itself, outside the fact that it's a mutant, is pretty cool. :) Wouldn't mind seeing a toy of that - as long as the hood "mouth" opens and has the teeth. lol

    • Isn't oil and gasoline technically "living"  tissue? Is is fossil fuel, which was once animal/vegetable matter. If, then, we consider petroleum the "blood" of a car, infecting it with mutagen could theoreticcally cause it to bond with the meta l"body" of a machine and bring it to life.

      Also, wasn't there a Mirage Comic story with a similar concept?  A posessed racing car causes its driver  (Casey, in that instance) to turn into a grotesque, brutally competitive monster?

    • The Iconoclast: There...actually might have been. I might even have it somewhere in my collections. But I can't remember where.

      But yes, all fossil fuels have a biological origin, though they are mineral and no longer tissue. However, after crude oil has been taken from the earth and refined into gasoline above ground, it can still grow bacteria after the fact, which can survive even inside fuel tanks. There's hardly a surface anywhere on the earth that isn't home to living microorganisms and DNA viruses of some kind.

      hey, never though about that! Good theory.

    • I like the extreme mutations. They give the turtles a chance to expand and improve their skills against all kinds of mutants whether or not those mutants are "living things".  Not to mention that extreme mutations lead to extremely cool FIGHT SCENES!!!!

      Good point.

    • Let's not forget that, when the car made contact with mutagen, it was running so it had a driver. Maybe the organic matter of the driver fused with the car creating the Speed Demon entity.
