1998, New York City.

14 Years after the Shredder's Rise to Power.

"Are the Turtles ready?"

Bitter. Broken. Oroku Saki was many things... but patient wasn't one of them. This experiment had been the most expensive project he'd ever had to deal with in his tenure as the Leader of the Foot Clan.... in his tenure as the Shredder. The overall project's cost was in the millions, however if the project was successful it would make more then just its money back... and if it didn't make its money back, the scientists that had worked on the project knew what would happen to them.

"Is the MUTAGEN ready?!"Shredder yelled angrily. Being ignored wasn't something he cherished either. Nervously one of the frail scientists looked up from his notepad and slowly started to walk towards his master. A small twitch had started in his hands.

"Ye... yes sir!" He stammered as the Shredder stared down at him mercilessly. "The procedure should start in a few minutes!" Shredder smiled beneath his helmet.

"Be sure that it does Mister Stockman."Shredder said before stepping past him. "I do not like delays."

In all his years as a member of the Foot Clan, Oroku Saki had never seen anything like the scene before him. The cage in front of him didn't look like much. Simply just 5 baby turtles staring up at him in confusion, it was similar to something one might find in a Pet Shop or a Zoo. However they were not the only animals in cages. Laid out across the room were dozens of cages containing dozens of animals of different species. Spiders, Rhinos, Warthogs, Rats, Hawks... and each had volunteers who desired their strength. Every cage came with several tanks strapped to the side, at this present moment the tanks were empty... however if all went to plan they would be filled soon. Overall Shredder was astonished that it had taken 7 years of research for the Display before him to be prepared... then he reminded himself it wasn't the cages that were important... or the Turtles. It was the Mutagen.

A strange liquid that had been discovered during an incident Shredder had encountered shortly before he gained control of the Foot. It had taken the Scientists responsible for its creation many years to recreate it... none of its materials had originated on Earth. At first he had been reluctant to recreate the formula. The events after its discovery had left to much pain and suffering throughout the Clan... but eventually Shredder had been convinced it was the wisest course to take.

"STOCKMAN!"Shredder barked causing one of the Scientists to jump in surprise. "Where are you?!"Stockman waddled over to him on his fat behind. Wearing his lab coat, glasses and strange haircut it would be hard for Shredder to imagine this man being one of the Smartest people on the Planet... but Shredder had been surprised dozens of times in recent memory. "Start the Procedure!"Shredder ordered before Stockman could even open his mouth. "Too much time has been wasted!"

"Of course sir." Baxter Stockman said before nodding at the two Foot Clan guards standing by the door. They both marched smartly into the hallway and returned carrying a large canister of the Mutagen. "Place it by the cage." Baxter instructed. They hesitated before doing so... they knew who their real master was. "I can't say how much you've helped me here sir." Baxter said with a grin. "The amount of research required for improving this... this elixir! I couldn't have done it on my own! But with your resources... your help... I was able t-"

"Mister Stockman."Shredder interrupted. "Do I look like a man interested in Science? I am exactly aware of how much I have assisted you... but do not think for a moment that we are Allies. We are not. You are merely a Pawn I have used to move further in the game."

Baxter frowned before pushing his glasses back up his nose. "Game? And... who are you playing this game against sir?" Lightning cracked across the Night sky and for a moment Baxter thought he saw a silhouette lying against the window. Shredder saw it too.

"Yoshi..."Shredder growled as the two Foot Soldiers stood by the cage fell to the ground. Small darts of adhesive poison lodged in the sides of their necks. Baxter's fellow scientists were next... and before Baxter could even react he saw another small dart heading directly towards him! He closed his eyes for a brief second and when he opened them the dart had disappeared. It was in the Shredder's hand. He had plucked it from the air as easily as if it were standing still. "Mister Stockman."Shredder growled as he threw the dart to the ground.

"Ye... yes sir?" Baxter whimpered as he noticed the thin, tall figure appear across the room.

"Leave this place."Shredder instructed. Baxter didn't need to be told twice. He ran towards the hallway, slamming the door shut behind him. Lightning cracked again and the figure reappeared next to the cage. Mere inches away from the Shredder. The figure pulled his hood back revealing familiar features that the Shredder had not seen for what felt like eons. Hamato Yoshi. "I see you have decided to make a reappearance my old friend."Shredder said before releasing his arm blades from their sheaths.

"Oroku Saki." Lightning cracked again allowing Shredder to clearly see the man's features. Old, worn... and scarred. The years had not been kind. "I was never your friend."

"My mistake."

"Your mistake was betraying your sense of honor." Yoshi's voice began to get louder and Shredder noticed him grip his fists in anger. "Your.. 'MISTAKE' was betraying ME!"

"I see... tell me Sensei. Does it pain you knowing that your wife loved me, more then she ever loved you?"

The straw broke the Camel's back. Yoshi screamed in anger and dashed forward on the tips of his feet, all while pulling the wooden staff from his back. Shredder met the staff with his own weapon, catching it between the blades of his left arm. With a quick twist Oroku Saki tore the staff from Yoshi's grasp. It fell to the ground with a clatter and rolled to the side. This disarmament was met by Yoshi landing a painful jab through one of the fleshy parts of the Shredder's armour. Saki yelled in pain as he slashed forward with his blades scratching across Yoshi's chest, tearing across his robes and dancing across his chest leaving a bloody mark. While Yoshi was caught by surprise Shredder followed it with a heavy kick to his waist sending Yoshi tumbling backwards against one of the containment cages. A cage filled with dozens of rats. Shredder had always despised these creatures.

"You're getting weak, old man."Saki growled as Yoshi regained his balance. "Slow."He spat.

"I'm still fast enough to kill you." Yoshi replied. Shredder simply smiled beneath his face guard.

"Perhaps..."He noticed the Mutagen canister lying by his feet. "But I'm not going to give you the chance."With super humanly fast movement Shredder kicked the canister with expert aim towards his former friend's chest. Of course Yoshi caught it with ease, he wasn't so that his skills would start to falter... but he was surprised by the move... and before he could counterattack Shredder sent a Shuriken his way. Yoshi didn't know what was inside the canister... at the end of the day it didn't matter. The Shuriken penetrated the canister and caused it to burst open violently, sending the green liquid directly onto Yoshi's face. In surprise and pain he stumbled backwards in an attempt to reconstitute his weight and maneuvering... but it was too late. Shredder dashed towards him and landed a second kick into his chest knocking him through the glass cage and sending him into the horde of rats. The green ooze started to glow as it seeped into Yoshi's skin... and Yoshi started to scream in agony. His skin started to be replaced by fur... and his eyes turned bright yellow.

"Enjoy your new life..."Shredder remarked as the tail started to grow.

@avenging_x_bolt

I know I focused a lot on Shredder this issue... but that was necessary to get the Origin kinda sorted out. It's also why this is a 0 Issue.
