Donatello
Real Name: Donatello
Search for 'Donatello' on Amazon


Bio:
In the original comic series by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, Donatello is generally not the "spotlight" character (except perhaps the Mirage Volume 4 comics), but Laird has on occasions announced that Donatello is his favorite Turtle, and Donatello has a large fan following due to his complex personality. He is universally portrayed as something of a geek, is good with technology, and invents many of the gadgets used by the other team members, thereby saving them on countless occasions. Something of a pacifist (although he fights alongside his brothers), he is the most introspective and nonviolent of the Turtles, preferring to use his mind and intellect to find a solution to a problem. Accordingly, his weapon appears less lethal than those of his brothers. He has even stated that he hates guns when he was forced to use one.

In the Mirage Volume One comics, Donatello acted as something of a "right-hand turtle" to Leonardo; both possessed good control over their emotions (unlike their brothers Raphael and Michelangelo). Donatello is almost always commonsensical and compassionate.
