—Anton Zeck's first line, The Legend of the Kuro Kabuto

Anton Zeck, aka Bebop, is an enemy of the Ninja Turtles. He was formerly an African-American master thief that was equipped with a high-tech suit, who would work for Ivan Steranko in order to get him artifacts some stolen artifacts. One of his missions was to steal the Kuro Kabuto from Oroku Saki, which he does until Leonardo takes the helmet away from him. Due to a series of events involving him and Steranko capturing Karai to bargain with Shredder, he ends up mutating into a cybernetic mutant warthog as a punishment by Shredder. Due to their mutations, the duo was forced to join The Foot Clan in order for them to live and to capture Karai once again. After The Shredder was resurrected by Kavaxas and the demon takes over control of The Foot Clan, him and Rocksteady decide to leave the clan. Some time afterwards, him and his partner are both hired by the 1987 Shredder to his Foot Clan (to replace 1987 Bebop and 1987 Rocksteady). But once they were reformed and fought alongside the Turtles, 1987 Turtles, April O'Neil and Mighty Mutanimals to defeat 1987 Shredder and Krang, they quit their lives of villainy once and for all. He wields his Laser Mohawk, Sticky Bomb, and Flash Bomb as his signature weapons of choice. He has a rivalry with Leonardo, Donatello and April O'Neil. Anton Zeck debuts in The Legend of the Kuro Kabuto and Bebop debuts in Serpent Hunt.


As Anton Zeck

Anton Zeck was born to an unknown African-American couple and was raised in New York City. Later on when he became older, Zeck started to work for the Russian arms dealer, Ivan Steranko, as a master thief. During his career as a thief, he was able to create his own techno suit alongside with an arsenal of weapons. At some point during his acquaintance with Steranko, Zeck shot his own boss in the eyeball, causing him to get a prosthetic diamond eyeball. Up to this day, he still claims that it was an accident.

As Bebop

During the events of the Kraang Invasion, Anton Zeck and Ivan Steranko were struggling to survive during the chaos taking place due to The Kraang. Since they barely had any food supply and they didn't want to rest becoming mutated, they decide to hunt down Karai to make a trade with Shredder for permission to leave New York City.
Zeck And Steranko Captured By Rahzar And Fishface
After a series of events that took place during the hunt for Karai Serpent, the two proceed to do the trading at the Docks. But once the Ninja Turtles came and interfered with this trading, a fight takes place between the Turtles, Anton Zeck, Ivan Steranko, and The Foot Clan. The fight comes to a conclusion once Karai has been set free, forcing the Turtles to retreat. Since The Shredder was angered by what occurred, he decides to take both Zeck and Steranko captive in order for them to get their punishment.
Zeck And Steranko Taken Into The Lab
Once the two were taken to the laboratory of Baxter Stockman, Shredder proceeds his punishment by mutating them both. Anton Zeck, who was going to be punished first for stealing the Kuro Kabuto, was chosen by Oroku Saki first to be mutated into a mutant warthog.
Anton Zeck Inside Mutagen Sphere
Zeck attempts to escape from his fate and tries to reason with Shredder, but is pushed by Fishface into the mutagen. During his mutation inside of the mutagen sphere, the warthog DNA that was mixed inside of the batch caused him to mutate into such animal. After his mutation was finished, Zeck was now a mutant warthog with his technological suit becoming merged to his body, making him a cybernetic being.
Anton Zeck And Ivan Steranko In Their Mutant Forms
Afterwards, the boss of Anton Zeck, Ivan Steranko, was mutated by The Shredder into a mutant white rhinoceros inside of the same mutagen sphere as Zeck. After Steranko's mutation, the duo meet each other in their new mutated forms and are not pleased. So because of this, they attempt to fight off The Shredder with their new mutated forms, which they miserably fail to do so and are forced to join The Foot Clan in order for them to be kept alive. As their first mission, they must hunt down Karai once again and they must turn her in, or they will be punished further more. When the mutant duo were in Coney Island, Michelangelo gave them both the mutant names of Bebop (Anton Zeck) and Rocksteady (Ivan Steranko), due to the van they were driving.
