And now to my (short) point.
If you said that Jason (Friday the 13th) in his newest movie was actually a robot, would it be bastardizing the story behind the movie? I think it would because it would completely negate the original film and his mothers part in his history. I also think it would take away from the psychotic nature of Jason's character; since as a robot, he is doing what he is programmed to do. Apply this logic to the "mutated" in the movie at hand. Qualifying them as having an "alien component" is accurate in what has mutated them, but their abilities as "ninja's" comes from their training via Splinter. Give them an "alien" demeanor in the context of the film and now you turn them from being well disciplined ninjas into having natural "out of this world" abilities due to the "super powers" they obtained from the Ooze. Think the difference between Batman and Green Lantern. One spent a lifetime to develop their skills. The other was handed their abilities through events out of their control. The simple nature of changing the context of their "origins" also changes the idea behind their entire back story. But maybe I am far too critical for my own good.
