However, when it was revealed that the latest miniseries ‘The Last Ronin’ would be a hark back to the darker tones of the original comic, not many fans expected it to be this brutal!
SPOILER WARNING: Do not read on unless you wish to know spoilers for the first issue of The Last Ronin.
The miniseries is going viral on social media and for good reason. So, who killed some of the members of the TMNT, who survived and when can fans get their hands on the next issue of The Last Ronin?
Who killed the TMNT?
- In the first issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, it was revealed that Oroku Hiroto (grandson of The Shredder) had killed Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael.
TMNT: The Last Ronin #1 opens with a lone turtle on a dangerous path for revenge. He narrates to himself that his three brothers, fellow TMNT members, were now deceased and asks them for guidance.
As the story continues, the still-unnamed Turtle fights his way to the new leader of the Foot Clan, Oroku Hiroto – the grandson of the original Shredder.
It is here that readers become aware of what transpired in the years leading up to The Last Ronin; Oroku Hiroto had killed three of the brothers, leading the remaining Turtle into a pit of despair filled with anger and a lust for revenge.
In the battle, the Turtle ends up falling through a window and crawls, injured, into the sewers where he prepares to end his own life.
However, he passes out from blood loss and wakes up in a hospital bed with a punk girl called April O’Neil, who had been following him since before the battle.
She recognises the mystery Turtle as Michelangelo, meaning that Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael were the ones who had died at the hands of Oroku.
