"The best of artists has no conception that the marble alone does not contain within itself." -- Michelangelo
Michelangelo (Mike or Mikey) is a fictional character, one of the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT). His mask is typically portrayed as orange outside of the comic series and his weapons are two nunchakus, though he has also been portrayed using other weapons, such as a grappling hook, tonfa, a three section staff (in some action figures), and (in several works of fan art) a kusari-gama.

More fun-loving than his brothers, Michelangelo was given a much bigger role in the 1987 cartoon series, directed at a younger audience, than in the more serious original comic books. He came to epitomize the late 1980s and early 1990s popular culture incarnation of the TMNT, coining most of their catch phrases; hence, he is possibly the most famous Turtle. Because of his more carefree nature, he is often viewed as the youngest of the Ninja Turtles, although in fact the Ninja Turtles are all roughly the same age. Like all of the brothers, he is named after a famous Renaissance artist; in this case, he is the namesake of Michelangelo Buonarroti, who was the painter of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The spelling of the character's name varies from source to source, and he has been alternately shown as both Michelangelo and Michaelangelo.
Because Kevin Eastman's original "ninja turtle" concept drawing (1983) portrayed an unnamed turtle with nunchaku strapped to its arms, some consider Michelangelo to be the first Ninja Turtle created.
