The War is over. Krang must stand trial for the crimes he has committed across dimensions. The Turtles travel to Dimension X as their friend Fugitoid asks them to help in the trial.
What you need to know:
Krang’s in jail, Turtles in another dimension, an assassin, and death. Dudes! Now that sounds like a killer story.
What you’ll find out:
Krang now in prison for his crimes sends an assassin to stall the trial. Leo, Mikey, Raph, and Donnie meet up with old friends and an old enemy to become allies for the trial. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Mikey is Luke, Leo is Han, Raph is Chewie, and Donnie a lonely nerd. A Medal Ceremony!
Krang believes he is innocent for what he has done. He tried to save his world and his people, if others died along the way to save his race… so be it. Not everyone sees it as the right way to do things. The Turtles come together to get the trial underway; they find out they must go and bring in witnesses to help in the trail in hopes to put Krang away forever. Finding out that Krang’s world is gone, the evidence is paper thin against him. As things begin to come together, Krang’s assassin is sent into the meeting room. What was paper thin is now gone!
Final Thoughts: I never thought I would see the day that Krang would be in prison and going to trial for what he has done. But if you know General Krang, he always has a plan under his pink tentacles. The Ninja Turtles are awesome as they bicker with each other as they always do, which feels genuine and not out of place. With their new mission at hand we must see if the brothers can bring back the witnesses or will Krang go free? Cowabunga dudes! This is going to be a shell of a ride.
