THE STORY So far... fifteen months ago, four Turtles were taken from the StockGen Research facility, along with a secret mutagen formula. The intelligent, protective rat Splinter intervened, freeing the Turtles but also exposing them to the mutagen in the process. Before the transformation, one of the Turtles, Raphael, was separated from the group by an alley cat. in the present day, the Ninja Turtles search for their lost brother, Raphael. Raphael wanders the streets alone until befriending the young vigilante Casey Jones. Unfortunately, the two have just stumbled across the alley cat from Raphael’s past... now the mutant gang leader Old Hob!
