Good evening comic book fans! Our next biography for African Heritage month features Baxter Stockman!
Baxter was created by Kevin Eastman and Tom Laird. He made his debut in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2 in October 1984.
Dr. Baxter Stockman was a renowned scientist that specialized in robotics and electronic engineering. His benign facade hid his truly evil nature. Baxter developed an army of killer robots called Mousers. He lied to the media and city government that his Mousers were created to help with the NY City vermin problem throughout the sewer system.
The Mousers were actually created for robberies. Baxter designed the Mousers to burrow through concrete/steel and take money from vaults throughout the city. When his computer programer, April O'Neil, discovered that his intentions were less than pure, he led her to his factory. April, horrified, saw that Baxter was mass producing the Mousers. April questioned Baxter why he would do this, accusing him of being obsessed with gaining money. Baxter laughed at the accusation. He admitted that money was a nice byproduct of his activities, but that he was committing the crimes for fun.
