Comic Book Question of the Week: Favorite TMNT Character (04/02/13)

Posted by k4tzm4n (36394 posts) - - Show Bio

Mandatory: play this in the background while reading the following.

If you're a fan of the Ninja Turtles -- and I hope you are, otherwise why are you in here? -- then odds are you have a favorite Turtle. It's something we've heavily discussed as children and, despite being such an ancient question, it's still a good time chatting about who's our favorite and why. But for our question of the week, I thought I'd expand the options a bit and include some of the biggest names in the franchise. Seeing as I try to limit it to 10 options every week (I caved and made 11... had to include Bebop & Rocksteady for the lulz), there's obviously some fan favorites that didn't make the cut (Stockman, Leatherhead, Slash, etc). That said, the list still manages to include the key names from Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's franchise, so I'm sure there's still a character that'll earn your vote.

Head to the homepage to check out the full WonderCon '13 gallery!

CLICK HERE to vote. Voting will be open until Thursday morning (ET) and an article with the results will be posted shortly after on the homepage. And no, Vanilla Ice isn't on the list.

Turtle fans, don't forget to read the IDW comic and check out new episodes of the show every Friday on Nick. Now go vote!

For years when I was young (8-13) it was Raph in a landslide. As I've gotten older, I've learned to appreciate Leo. Tough call though.

I was a Donny fan, but just like you, I've grown to love Leo.

I voted Donny! He was always my favorite growing up and still is. I just wish Nickelodeon would fix his gapped tooth. I still can't get used to that.

When picking one's favorite Turtle, there are 2 kinds of people:

  • People who want their choice to represent part of their personality
  • And people who pick Leonardo.

@fantasgasmic: and 1 cant lead to 2? turtles wise i always weighed between donny and leo. leo is noble but donny is super intelligent. both qualities i admire

when I was young and fickle it changed sometimes from week to week...but then the Future Shark Trilogy started in the Archie Series TMNT Adventures and I saw future Raphael with an eye patch, a baseball cap and carrying Leo's swords....I was hooked

Raph is the sarcastic badass, Mikey is kinda dumb but fun/funny, Donny is smart but slightly awkward, and Leo is the safe choice. He's the bland one, being the leader is a position, not a personality trait.
