The Ninja Turtles managed to dominate all criminals and villains without ever really using their weapons to the maximum potential. As a unit, they were walking around carrying a combination of beatdown tools that consisted of katanas, sais, nunchucks and a bo staff yet they never stabbed or abused their opponents into surrendering. I suppose it was in the best interest of our innocent, youthful minds to keep the graphic violence away until the WWF Attitude Era in 1998. I’m just saying if you really wanted to rid the world of the likes of Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang and Technodrome you wouldn’t just stop their evil schemes and plots, you’d beat them within an inch of their lives and see if they ever misbehave again. It makes you wonder what the shell those turtles were thinking. HA! Get it? “Shell” instead of “hell”… Because they are turtles… You get it.
