Recap: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 SE 12 Super Power Struggle
Mikey drags Raph along to a comic book convention, but gets more than he expected when Raph stops a villain from stealing a cape and turns into the new Green Mantle. Frustrated that his brother now has super powers and he doesn't, Mikey tries to take the Green Mantle cape for himself, but Raph's not giving up his new-found powers without a fight.
