Teenage Mutant Arkham City? 5 Turtle Bosses We Hope Make It In

Rumors began circling this week that Rocksteady would not be following up Batman: Arkham City with another Dark Knight adventure, and would instead be working on using the same style to reboot the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. For those who may only know the Turtles from their '80s cartoon, we can assure you that the source comic book material is far darker and grittier than the pizza loving heroes of your youth.

That's the aspect of TMNT that Rocksteady is supposedly working on. Though nothing official has been released yet, leaks report the game's title as the Manhattan Crisis, and that we can expect to see Shredder, Krang, Baxter Stockman, Bebop, and Rocksteady (appropriately enough). That's to be expected, but the series has lots of great villains to choose from and we wanted to put forth some suggestions.
