just throwing out an idea feel free to do with it as you will:
100 years ago the Krang began releasing mutagen and infecting large areas of the planet. No one knows what their endgame ultimately was, but it caused a planet-wide crisis.
The middle east and the u.s. were both convinced it was some kind of chemical warfare. Nuclear threats elevated until actual bombs were dropped. Calamity. Much of the Krang retreated from the wreckage, but in the lull that followed mutant populations within civilian areas became unavoidable. what was left of humanity gathered into city states. Huge swathes of land decimated by bombing became no-mans-lands populated with monstrosities, the unstable mutagen deteriorating further under heavy radiation.
Mutagen was flushed from the main drinking water stores and as years passed, active mutations began to dwindle, but mutant births still occurred - both from human parents and within the mutate community itself. Ghettos were created to house them.
New york as we know it is now the sunless underlevel of a great tiered city know as Beacon, almost exclusively Mutate in population. Its illegal for mutates to live in the main city, and those lucky enough to live above at all are relegated to the Edge, near the walls that protect humanity from no-mans-lands and the creatures that roam there. Rogue mutant attacks are common. Of late these neighborhoods have also taken the brunt of the damage caused by a sudden resurgence of Krang activity.
April O’Neil lived in such an Edgetown before it was bombed. She and her father (both mutants) were shipped as refugees to live in New york, where she meets the Hamato family. Because April passes for human, Kirby sneaks her to the surface to live with her human aunt and go to school. If her non-human status is discovered she is at serious risk of being trialed and sentenced, possibly even to death.
Up in the Spire (the area of beacon populated the wealthiest of humanity) the remnants of America’s government is corrupt and gang warfare is just as prevalent as it is on the lower levels (where casey and april live), but in this case it’s the Shredder and not the Purple Dragons who holds political power, along with an anti-mutate agenda that he plans to use to purge the city completely of non-human peoples.
April working at her aunts antique shop on weekends and after school
April sitting behind the register doing homework and texting Irma or Donnie or Casey , waiting anxiously for closing time so she can go hang out
April waking up and helping her aunt open up shop before she goes to school, painting seasonal decorations on the front windows, April spending her weekends out hunting through flea markets with her aunt or stripping awful paint jobs off of nice old chairs or figuring out how to wire new lights into ancient light fixtures
~April actually spending time with her family~~~~
i think about this a lot
like, she’s supposed to be living with her aunt right? why haven’t we seen Aprils only existing family why isn’t this woman more involved in the life of her niece, a girl who just recently lost both her parents in a relatively short span of time
like damn do adults even exist in this world or???
