COMIC-BOOK CREDENTIALS: Appeared in various Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics published by Archie Comics and Mirage.
COMIC-BOOK WEAKNESSES: Foot Soldiers don't seem the sharpest tools in the box.
Experts in a variety of martial arts and ninja skills, come in different varieties (including human and robot) and are experts in being fodder.
REASON FOR RECRUITMENT: See Stormtrooper recruitment file. Oh and having one form of fodder is good, but having two is so much better for when things get really tough!
POTENTIAL RISK: Foot Soldiers are more stupid than Stormtroopers and are likely to get themselves killed quite easily!
CHANCES OF SURVIVAL: No hope whatsoever.
IN EVENT OF DEATH BEFORE MISSION... LIKELIHOOD OF REPLACEMENT WITH DEADPOOL: Never! Foot Soldiers, just like Stormtroopers, are easily replaced with yet more Foot Soldiers. They either breed like rabbits or they're stockpiled in a lock-up somewhere, possibly next to a load of Coneheads merchandise.
