Character Profile: Donatello is perhaps the most intelligent of the TMNT. He is skilled in mathematics, science, and has been self-educated in many of theories based on those two subjects.
Don is a crafty inventor; he knows his way around the lab, and the garage. His personal life has never been too involved. He would much rather sit at home and read a good book — mostly non-fiction.
Of the lot, Donatello may be considered the least spiritual; however, he does stand up for what he believes in. And though he may believe in evolution and non-linear equations, Don is quick to defend his brother’s and master’s beliefs. The fact is, no one can explain much in this universe. And all Donnie knows is that he has seen some pretty strange things in his life, and one happens to stare him in the face every morning in the bathroom mirror.
Technical Information: Donatello… the science guy, the brain, the most docile of the four. How on earth did he become a hunk of metal quick to kill with lasers and bullets rather than the honorable methods of self defense that his master taught him? Oh yeah, once again Image Comics mangled a TMNT character. Quite literally. They blew off Donnie’s shell, beat him to a bloody pulp, and riddled him with bullet holes. Since the cyborg that did this to him was close to death as well, the metal took control of Don’s body, turning him into one mean Mofo!
Note: The views and opinions expressed here are all mine, and should not be taken as actual fact. These statistics are based largely on the TMNT Archie Adventure Series. I do consider all TMNT publications to be equally factual. This includes the Archie, Mirage, Image, Wolf Productions, and even the Pizza Hut sponsored singing Ninja Turtles.
