Donatello is the scientist and engineer of the turtles. Most known for his Bo Staff, purple bandanna, and the nickname "Donnie" or "Donny" as called by his brothers and friends. He is responsible for all the turtles vehicles of transportation.
Like his brothers, Donatello was a simple pet shop turtle until exposure to toxic “ooze” mutated him. He was raised by Splinter along with his brothers, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael.
Donatello was created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird
Donatello is usually considered the brains behind the Ninja Turtles being more thoughtful and quiet than his brothers. In the early issues he was presented as Leonardo's second in command. In the first issue he was the one to knock the Shredder and his thermite grenade off the roof top killing him. The second issue showed he had an interest in electronics. The opening of the issue showed him soldering circuits while fighting Baxter Stockman's Mousers. He and April O'Neil cracked Stockman's computer system to shut down the Mousers.
