What Could Have Been: He-Man/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Jerry Whitworth
Late last month, creator Freddie E. Williams II began selling pencil studies for a proposed He-Man/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover comic book series. At the time, Williams simple stated the project was delayed twice over the last year before being canceled. Williams had previously worked on such crossovers as Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I-III, He-Man/ThunderCats, and Injustice vs. Masters of the Universe. The art sold depicted mash-ups between various characters from both franchises showing Leonardo as He-Man, Michelangelo with Orko magic wand nunchaku, Raphael in Teela-inspired armor, Donatello with Man-at-Arms-based equipment, Prince Adam dressed as a ninja with the Ninja Turtles’ weapons, and an amalgamation of Shredder and Skeletor dubbed Shreddator. Recently, the creator spoke with the Raging Bullets podcast to discuss the defunct story.
