Jason Aaron gets the Ninja Turtles assignment

Not only is woke writer Aaron - who already made a mess of Thor during his time at Marvel - getting a writing assignment on Superman at DC, now ComicBook reports he's going to take charge of writing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, soon after it was announced IDW had retained the license for storytelling:
The Eisner-award-winning writer Jason Aaron is taking over as writer of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for IDW Publishing. ComicBook.com can exclusively reveal that Aaron, a former Marvel architect and current writer of Batman and Superman, will helm the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles relaunch, beginning with a 10-page prelude story in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Alpha #1 one-shot on sale in June. IDW's ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series will return with a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 in July, written by Aaron with creative collaborators to be named in the coming weeks. The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series is notably a relaunch and not a reboot, existing in the same universe as IDW's previously published Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books.
It makes shudder to think Aaron's won awards, no matter how corrupted the Eisner committee's become for years already. That's a disgrace too. And even if this isn't a reboot, that's irrelevant; what matters is Aaron's bound to inject as much wokeness into TMNT as he did into Thor, and now likely Superman, making TMNT as bad as a recent cartoon turned out to be. This is nothing to celebrate, any more than the time an awfully masculine-looking woman was turned into another turtle 5 years ago in IDW's takes. Plus, relaunching the series volumes is no different from Marvel/DC's own sales stunts that relied on the same tactics, which don't avail in the long run.

And according to this Popverse item, Aaron's still doing projects for Marvel:
As to what those things are, he’s teased some details as part of his newsletter recently. He wrote that he’s doing two projects for the company, adding, “one of them [is] a mini-series that is stylistically and tonally a combination of my Punisher: King of Killers book and my work on Thor: God of Thunder,” although he added that “it’s neither a Punisher story or a Thor one.” The second, he teased, “I can’t really say anything about his one at all, other than… it’ll be a surprise, just like it was to me when I got the phone call.”

It’s worth bearing in mind that Marvel continues to hold a number of licensed titles, and that Aaron has done licensed work with the company in the past, launching its Star Wars title in 2015, and its Conan the Barbarian relaunch in 2019. Could we be about to see an unexpected licensed book from Aaron at Marvel in the near future…? (My fingers are crossed for him to take on Planet of the Apes, I’ll be honest.)
Naturally, the columnist has no reservations or objectivity to provide regarding Aaron's projects, and can only gush and fawn. No reminder given that when Aaron was writing Conan, he not only caved to SJWs, Marvel lost the license pretty quickly after that whole flap.

This is exactly why it's a terrible shame IDW was able to resecure the license for TMNT. They'd been going bananas over wokeness in the past several years, causing serious damage to GI Joe and Transformers, subsequently lost the license for those, and unfortunately, as Aaron's recruitment makes clear, they refuse to learn any lessons. That aside, anybody who's going to rely almost entirely on licensed merchandise is making a joke of themselves.
