Probably partly because the TMNT are all related.
Mmm, yum! That’s some tasty crow!
Cancer cancer incest cancer Bob Dole cancer.
(I have no idea why I included Bob Dole)
Cuz its Bob Dole? do you need a reason?
Wait, wait, wait… what??
I remember when Venus came out ’cause the TV show was supposed to be about the turtles not quite being teens anymore. But I don’t remember this crap about how they weren’t ever related!!!
Man, if I had known that, I would have been filled with the utmost fury. All this time, I believed the boys were still brothers in that continuity but Venus was just there.
Were the Turtles ever established as being biologocally related in the first place? Half the time they’re even given different colours implying they may not even be the same species of turtle. And why would four random turtles that fell downa sewer be related by blood in the first place? They were always adopted by Splinter, does them being siblings by adoption change that much really?
Holy shit, I just realised that the whole Venus thing was more sexist than I’d realised before. Look at their names, yeah?
Michelangelo – artistic genius of many media
Raphael – brilliant painter and architect
Donatello – intensely talented sculptor
Leonardo – freakin’ Da Vinci!
Venus de Milo – Statue. Work of art, made by a man. Doesn’t do anything but stand there with her arms broken off. What the actual FUCK?!
The guys are named for genius Renaissance artists and inventors. Venus’s namesake was an object whose only job was to be sculpted by her male creator and look pretty for everyone to look at.
The statue was also meant to depect the goddess of love, so take from that what you will, as well.
