If they're not going to be using this info. for a movie, then fine, I can dismiss the parts I don't like as lame and just ignore it. But if this is all heading somewhere for a reason (the movie) then...
Personally I think they're over explaining too many things, and creating not-so-good 'real names'.
I dunno about you guys, but I always liked the the idea that the vast majority of MOTU characters were unique beings/creatures, even though the mini-comics and Filmation didn't always portray them as such. Why does everyone have to be from a race?
When we get to Leech, is he going to be an outcast or former ruler of a Leech kingdom? How 'bout we stick with Filmation on that one and have him be created through Horde science and magic?
