Now of course, the second coolest is Raphael, the hard ass. I remembered the Image version of the Ninja Turtles, where he was scarred up and a cut, donning the Casey Jones Mask. I felt that was an elegant progression of the character, showing that cost of his body in the route of justice through violence. It made him poignant. When they dulled it down in later version, be it in the cartoon or other versions of the comic, I felt it just made him “mad guy” instead of making him a more evolved character, one that unlike the other turtles, had singled mindedness that made him a force to reckon with.
