Raphael’s Grudge With Old Hob Could DOOM the Turtles’ Future

The latest issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reveals that Raphael is holding onto a grudge that might harm the clan more than help them.

WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #116 by Kevin Eastman, Tom Waltz, Sophie Campbell, Ronda Pattison, and Shawn Lee, on sale now.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been staring down a lot of bad situations lately. They’ve rescued their worst enemy from a near fatal crash, stopped two pairs of overgrown and underdeveloped mutants from destroying the city, and still don’t know if any of it will help to prevent the dark future that has been foretold for them. While the warning they received from the future left a ton of weight on Jennika’s shoulders, the temper of another Turtle, Raphael, could very well doom them all.

The adult Lita who came back to the past from a dark and destitute future has left an indelible impact on the rest of the Splinter Clan, even her former self. Although her warnings didn’t go over well with everyone when she first arrived, in the short time since then she has grown closer to her family than ever before, and even watched as they take steps to secure a brighter tomorrow. Lita hasn’t always been the best at keeping important details from the future secret, but she has gotten better, refusing to give Leo any more information regarding his potential romantic relationship with Koya when pressed. Of course, Leonardo isn’t the only one who has questions they desperately want answered, and Raphael eventually comes to talk to Lita as well.

Raphael only wants to know if Old Hob ever sees justice for the horrors that he has wrought. On the surface, this is Raphael wanting the villain to pay for the lives he has taken, as well as those that he has irreparably changed by setting of the mutagen bomb which created Mutant Town in the first place. Things go much deeper than that, however. Raphael isn’t just asking because he wants to know Hob faced consequences for his actions, but to find some amount of vindication for himself.

During 2019’s City at War storyline Raphael was a member of Old Hob’s Mighty Mutanimals. With the group, he took part in storming Mayor Baxter Stockman’s victory celebration in Union Square Park, which is where the mutagen bomb was unleashed. Raphael has since felt responsible for not stopping Hob sooner and buying into his vision, something that has weighed heavily on him ever since.

Unfortunately for Raphael, Lita has gotten far better at keeping her lips sealed when it comes to playing fortune teller, though she does leave Raph with the notion that he too can choose to make the future better in his own way. Considering Hob himself has recently been taking steps towards redemption, it isn’t impossible that there is a future where the Turtles’ longtime nemesis becomes another one of their allies.

If Raphael can’t put aside the horrors of the past, however, there is an equally good chance that he just might ruin any chance of reconciliation between the two parties. Hopefully, whatever comes next is for the best, or at least better than what everyone was expecting after Lita first told them her story.
