Chapter 1: The Secret of the Sewers
It all began when April O’Neil, an aspiring reporter for the Daily Bugle, stumbled upon an ancient secret deep within the sewers of New York City. As she delved deeper and deeper into the murky depths of the underground tunnels she knew something was different about the place she had ventured in to. As she cautiously proceeded through the tunnel, a strange noise caught her attention–a sound like a low hum but with a musical note to it.
April peered through the darkness and suddenly noticed four unearthly figures standing in the shadows. She immediately realized that they weren’t human beings, instead they appeared to be giant, humanoid turtles! Despite being shocked by the sight of them, April recognized that this must be why she was drawn to the sewers- to learn their secrets.
April cautiously approached the turtles and introduced herself. The four brothers- Leonard, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo- were astonished that a human had stumbled upon them after all these years of hiding. But April’s curiosity and enthusiasm earned her their trust. The brothers explained that they were the result of a scientific experiment gone wrong – the accident had caused them to mutate into their current forms.
The brothers told April that their wise master, Splinter, had raised them in the sewers and taught them the ways of ninjutsu, an ancient form of martial arts. They explained to her that they had sworn a solemn oath to use their amazing powers to protect New York City from the forces of evil- a group of villains led by the nefarious Shredder.
April was instantly taken in by the brothers’ stories and enthusiasm. She knew this was her chance to get the scoop of a lifetime and that these four turtle brothers were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- NYC’s secret weapon against the forces of evil!
With April’s help, the Turtles were able to thwart Shredder’s plans, time and time again. Whether it was battling mutants in the sewers or taking on hordes of Foot Clan ninjas in the streets, the Turtles proved themselves to be a force to be reckoned with.
April couldn’t believe the sense of justice and courage that the Turtles displayed each time they faced great danger. She knew that she wanted to be a part of this fight, and soon she had become the Turtles’ closest confidante and ally.
Together, the Turtles and April had many adventures, facing down terrible villains and saving innocent lives in the process. Eventually, they even gained the admiration and respect of their beloved city and its inhabitants.
April’s dreams of becoming a great reporter had come true, but even more importantly, she had developed a strong bond with the Turtle brothers. April was now part of a family of heroes, united by their love and dedication to protect New York City.
The secret of the sewers had become the foundation of something much bigger and more powerful- a symbol of courage and justice known far and wide as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Be careful. We got company.
The Turtles readjust their positions to get a better vantage point, and in the distance they spot a large group of Foot Clan ninjas – more than they can handle on their own.
Suddenly, a black van screeches to a halt in front of them. April jumps out of the driver’s seat and throws the door open.
Hurry! Get in!
