Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #116

Spurred on by the arrival of the Lita from the future, Jennika puts together a heavy metal band to compete against Bebop and Rocksteady with control of Mutant Town (and the future) on the line. It's also worth noting that Jenny finds a way to find peace with the injured Karai as putting toghether the band seems to heal something in the troubled turtle.

Most of the issue revolves around Jennika putting together the band and it slowly coming together. The members prove to be an interesting mix with the former enemies Diamond and Koya, the large Tusk, Jay, and Jo. The search for the members has an the old Magnificent Seven feel towards it. And if some of the choices appear unusual, the band is a nice mix of older and newly introduced characters.

While some of the other mutants don't understand the time and energy everyone is putting into a musical performance, the process brings the group together even more as the issue comes to the and on the eve of the competition. Time to rock!
