Meet Jennika, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles New Female Turtle

IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic is heading toward its 100th issue, an amazing feat by modern comic book standards, but the publisher isn’t saving all their shocking moments for that milestone issue (though we’re on the record as predicting the return of Oruku Saki for that big event). In last week’s TMNT #95, IDW debuted a new female turtle, Jennika.

In the pages of IDW Publishing’s ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, a gang war has broken out across New York City. Jennika, Splinter’s chunin in the Foot Clan, was one of the first wounded. The Shredder’s great-granddaughter Karai, Splinter’s rival for control of the Foot, impaled Jennika on a sword. Karai and her gang of mutants then prevented the Turtles from taking Jennika to a hospital. With few other options, the Turtles took drastic measures by reaching out to the Mutanimals, stealing some of the same Dimension X ooze substance that restored April O’Neil’s father to health after his stroke, and heading to Harold Lyja’s lab.

At the lab, Donatello and Lyja infused Jennika with the serum. It was working until Metalhead, the robotic Turtle with a grudge against Donatello, crashed the lab. Metalhead destroyed the one batch of mutagen that the Turtles had on hand and Jennika’s health began to deteriorate again. The Turtles escaped with Jennika and returned to their old sewer headquarters. Seeing no other way to save Jennika’s life, Donatello performed a blood transfusion using Leonardo’s blood. Jennika’s health improved, but she also transformed into a new ninja turtle.
