Recap / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 S 2 E 22 Return Of The Justice Force
The Turtles and Casey go on a road trip to track down a rare comic book for Mikey. Little do they realize the story they're after isn't merely fictional...
This episode provides examples of
Dented Iron: The Justice Force still have their powers, but show their age. Stainless Steel Steve gets back problems in his first fight, Zippy Lad is in a wheel chair, and Joey Lastic gets a kink in his neck when he tries to stretch it out.
Steve: You're looking well. Zippy Lad: No, I'm not! I'm a mess, just like you!
Mini-Mecha: The main transport Dome-Bot used by both Dr. Dome and Ananda
Mugged for Disguise/ Paper-Thin Disguise: The Turtles attract and destroy some Domeoids so they can wear their domes as a disguise. Justified in that the robots are reacting to the signal given off by the domes, not their physical appearance.
Revenge: Ananda states this as her motivation for kidnapping the Justice Force, as she holds them responsible for her mother's death
Self-Parody: When the Turtles walk into the comic book store, a nerd in a costume asks Raph:
"No one forced your mother back into the Justice Force. She chose this life, and she chose to give her life to save others. But you still have one parent who's very much alive and wants to be a part of your life."
