Thirty Days of Turtles: Dark Water

Recently I decided that if I want to keep having new content on this blog, I'm going to have to branch out beyond Marvel and DC. They'll always bring in new content, and I'm sure I'll continue to find old ones I've missed, but it's time to move toward more unfamiliar territory. With that in mind, and because they have a new movie out, I thought I'd kick this new era off with Thirty Days of Turtles!

That's right: From June 3 to July 2, there'll be a post each day highlighting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles canon immigrants. Now, because TMNT canon is a little confusing, it can be hard to tell what counts as a canon immigrant and what doesn't. So for the purposes of this blog, a TMNT canon immigrant is anything (a) from the movies, cartoons, video games, toy lines, or tie-in comic series that later appeared in (b) TMNT volumes 1, 2, or 4 [because they're by the original creators] or TMNT volume 5 [because the original creators are involved, it's the new official continuity, and its goal is to use as much of the diverse TMNT lore as possible].

With that in mind, let's look at today's entry: Dark Water!

Dark Water is an elite military force that featured in the 80s cartoon episode "State of Shock" (October 1994). The episode features two members specifically: Colonel Knight and Sergeant Alex Winter. Winter was part of a super-soldier program that gave him electrical powers, after which he turned into the villain Megavolt.

Knight and Winter later appear in IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #52 (November 2016), and two issues after that, it's revealed they're working with Man in Black Agent Bishop.
