TMNT’s Four New Turtles Officially Have a Name

Warning! Spoilers for TMNT: Armageddon Game #3 by IDW Comics

In the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, the four new turtles officially get a group name, as the team is referred to as the “Null Turtles.” In a brand-new preview for TMNT: Armageddon Game #3 from IDW Comics, the group of rival ninjas in white masks get spotlighted as their connection to Madame Null is further revealed, as they share a name based on the villain.

In the current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book series at IDW, four new Turtles were recently revealed as adversaries to the main TMNT clan. The mysterious new, white-masked Turtles who debuted in TMNT’s Free Comic Book Day tie-in, carry the same weapons as Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Rafael. It’s unknown whether they are allies or enemies, but a new look at an upcoming issue of TMNT: Armageddon War reveals the new Turtles’ name seems to hint that they are working alongside one of the villains that TMNT is trying to take down: Madame Null.


In a new preview of TMNT: Armageddon Game #3 by Tom Waltz and Federici Vincenzo by IDW Comics, the solicitation reveals TMNT, working under Shredder, will try to recruit new allies in their battle to take down the Rat King. As the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles travel across different dimensions and places, on Earth, Donatello and Jennika will come face-to-face with the newest four Turtles, who are revealed to be named the Null Turtles. Check out the cover art for TMNT: Armageddon Game #3 by Vincenzo and Pasquale Qualano.

If the four Turtles’ “Null” name seems familiar, it’s because one of the antagonists in the current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series is Madame Null, who is best known for using her business to experiment on mutants. Are the newly named Null Turtles the product of Madame Null’s experiments? Are they possibly the clones of the original four Turtles? It’s unclear, but plenty of questions still need to be answered. Check out the full preview text for TMNT: Armageddon Game #3 below, which teases the conflict ahead.

The TMNT and their new mentor, the Shredder, have quickly discovered their mission to recruit new allies to battle against Rat King and his minions (Baxter Stockman, Madame Null, and the newly minted MetalKrang) in NYC has its own set of perilous circumstances. In Dimension X, Michelangelo and the Neutrinos are forced to join the Nova Posse as would-be bounty hunters. Meanwhile, in Dimension Z, the Shredder and Dark Leo realize they must undertake a deadly rescue mission if they are to have any chance of bringing Cherubae to their side. And on Earth, Raphael is finding nothing ever comes easy when Old Hob is involved, while nearby, Donnie and Jennika have their fair share of dangerous problems, not the least of which is the mysterious Null Turtles!

The newly named Null Turtles are about to pose a significant problem for the Turtles, despite their origin and true powers still to be revealed. But, considering those factors and the four new Turtles’ potential connection to Madame Null, taking them out will likely be difficult for Jennika, Donatello, and the rest of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Readers will learn more about the Null Turtles when TMNT: Armageddon Game #3 from IDW Comics arrives in comic book stores on November 23, 2022.
