TMNT:: girl talk:: by Inner-D TMNT:: girl talk:: by Inner-D
This was going to be soo simple, like...just one layer of color and that was it, but I got carried away. When I finished I wasn't sure if I wanted to put the conversation there but then it wouldn't make scense why Venus is sad .

And of who are they talking about ? OF WE, THE FANS, OF COURSEE!

Mona is trying to cheer up Venus after all the bashing that her character is victim of.

...-o- but Mona wouldn't know about not been liked! , she is soooo beloved by the fandom, amazing what this girl accomplished with just a cool dessing and one episode in the series.

...XD I'm been a little hypocrite drawing something like this, because I also used to hate Venus. I still don't like some things about her, and what the producers were trying to do including her in the series, but some fanwork of others artists here, in deviantart ,have changed my mind a little bit about her. Besides is not like is the girl's fault that the show where she was included sucked so much.

But we, the fans, can make things better for her, like some are already doing ^_^.

...and yeah, I really like how this came out, it has it's mistakes, but whatever. (...D: I forgot the yellow part in Mona's tail, I hope you can forgive me!)

...I write too much in the comments, I know.

I don't know why everyone hates her. I know the show she was in sucked but I love her. I thought she was a strong heroin.

Here's my opinion about Venus de Milo. One - I don't hate Venus. She's a great character. Two - I hate the writers of the show. There are many ways I can think of in which you can make Venus de Milo look like a better character. The writers just picked the wrong way. And 3 - If one of the creators of TMNT really did hate Venus then why include her in the first place? It just doesn't make sense.

I never saw Next mutation mostly because i'm not too big on live action tmnt stuff; but I have seen and I do understand why venus wasn't well liked..however; even a character who was poorly written can still be loved, plus the writters didn't know what the hell they were doing. If there were proper adjustments i'm sure she'd be better.

Although I'm a bit of hypocrite to be saying this (also not a huge Venus fan, though mainly because of the show), poor Venus, but I'm glad Mona is there to comfort her.

Finally, some pro venus work that addresses the hard facts!

I remember not minding Venus when I was younger with my only gripe being she didn't wear like--a bra or anything. I always thought it was weird that they could get away with that,but I wasn't complaining about it either.

She had some really great physical attributes, like her bandana being braided and the use of bicep bands instead of elbow pads. Top that off with her constant confusion of Western culture (calling the Sewers 'the toilet') and lots of mix ups with phrases 'this is cold!' instead of 'cool' or 'we were milked!' instead of 'creamed'.

She had awesome potential, but the backstory of 'oh btw, there was a 5th turtle, lol you guys didn't need to know' was kind of lame and simple. I hope she is reintroduced in the new Nick series with perhaps a better, more original backstory. Mona too!

I always thought Venus had potential to be a cool character when done right. Shame Peter Laird hates her to the point we could never see that happen. Baffles me more as to why he even likes Bay's idea of making them aliens since that defies what they are in the first place.

I do find it a bit odd that Peter Laird likes the idea of the TMNT being from a race of aliens, since technically, that WOULD probably include Venus...

i remember watching that show when i just was becoming a teen, it had a strange mix of Power Rangers & TMNT 3 feel to it, but i still liked it. i think some people who hate Venus for being a girl turtle are being a little sexist, & those who say her character is bad because of her not knowing American terms should look @ Teen Titans and tell me if that characterization of Starfire doesn't work. great art, and i hope people will be nicer to Venus.

While I respect that Venus isn't a creation of Eastman and Laird, I think she had a lot of potential to be a great character.

She was simply written and handled poorly. Which is very sad, in my opinion.

The biggest thing of what a lot of people didn't like was that she 1) seemed to be a little too naive and 2) (which I thin is probably the biggest thing) that she replaced April O'Neil.
I really enjoyed her as a character, where there was a dynamic where she was more mental / spiritual to the guys.

Although I do agree that the show had a decent idea, although Shredder did die off, AGAIN, the costumes were fantastic, but far too slapstick

I think Mona's appeal is that she disappeared as soon as she made quite a memorable entrance, making viewers want to see more of her. This is interesting considering she was supposed to be a girl Turtle, Peter and Kevin put their foot down and said no, so she was turn into a lizard/fish/salamander instead.

Venus kinda plowed in there with her magic and stuff, upsetting the team balance and was not given a stronger characterization other than she was supposed to be the token girl and a love interest. And she sadly suffered for it.

I didn't watch TNM... by then I find myself watching 90's anime than Power Rangers... but based from YT it wasn't very good at all. So yeah, it's unfortunate Venus made her debut there.
