April O'Neil of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, like so many great women of genre, is a journalist. As a reporter, the intrepid O'Neil is dedicated to the truth, justice, and turtle power. And you know what, as a fellow journalist, same. Especially if those turtles have six-packs like these guys, am I RIGHT? Can I get a potentially bestiality-laden amen up in here? ...No? Yeah, totally, I mean, I was joking anyway. No, YOU'RE the perv. 

Anyway. April O'Neil is a strong, independent woman who spends a lot of time with what are ostensibly teenage boys and their rat dad, as well as her aggressive hockey boyfriend. They hang out in sewers and eat pizza, and I get it, comfort and a forgiving waistline is necessary. 

But, I have one question. Like... why the jumpsuit?


I mean, don't get me wrong, it is a LEWK. But it's perplexing. It's great for turtletime, but it's not ideal for on-camera reporting. 

But, at the same time, I have another question: Why NOT the jumpsuit? Why not jumpsuits for everyone? Jumpsuits for turtles. Jumpsuits for Splinter's old rat-ass. Jumpsuits for me on my person right now, with a side of white boots PLEASE AND THANKS.

Her jumpsuit is pointless, but remains sharp af. Hero in a half-zip — JUMPSUIT POWER.
