Not that ninjas from space isn’t cool, but it’s not their origin.

This is something that Michael Bay actually said when promoting his Ninja Turtles movie. The second panel is the fan reaction, obviously. The female Turtle is Venus, Saban’s addition in Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. Fans don’t like her. TMNT co-creator Peter Laird, in defending Bay (while admitting he wasn’t happy with the change) still declared Venus a worse idea because he never liked the fifth turtle idea. After reading his comments, I kind of understand why he thinks that but I disagree, if only because I’m so tired of Hollywood changing everything about a license lately that any major deviation gets to me.
