I have a comic book coming out soon. I also tweet a lot about comics @KurtArthur12.

I already wrote what I thought in Daredevil's Season 2 earlier, but I think I missed blatant references to our favorite Mutant Ninja Turtles. Let's see, there was a fearless leader (Matt), a strong reporter (Karen), a loner in red (Elektra), a rat-looking mentor (Stick), a violent vigilante with an affinity for skulls (Frank). This all takes place in Season 2, Episode 12 and it was awesome. I'm not saying I necessarily like the episode, because I really wished that the writers would have explained Black Sky a tad better. It's crazy how much this episode truly compared to the awesome 1990's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Nobu = The Shredder

The leader of The Hand, Nobu, even had facial scars to match the ones Shredder had on his face. Nobu was in constant battle with our hero and I just think it's very interesting to see the similarities.

Elektra= Ralph

They're both loners, who both have a temper. They also love red. I thought it was awesome to see a teenage Ellie fighting in this episode.

Karen = April O' Neil

She's the normal human who gets involved with all heroic stuff. She's always curious to find out more!

Frank Castle = Casey Jones

Both of these characters are super-badass and love skulls. I think it's easy to see the similarity.

Daredevil = Leonardo

Our fearless leader, who nags on everyone else.

The Hand = The Foot

Bunch of ninjas who fight the good guys.

Foggy = Micheal Angelo

They're both funny!

Stick = Splinter

A wise old mentor, who helps the heroes on their journey.

The Sewers = The Sewers

They both take place in the sewers!


This was just a fun thing to write and I would love to hear if I missed anything else. Oh yeah, TMNT was originally a parody of Daredevil. I find this funny to see how the two are still thriving off each other even now!
