Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Secret of The Ooze Leonardo Funko POP
From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secret of the Ooze, Leonardo, as a stylized Funko POP! Leonardo, nicknamed Leo, is the leader of the Ninja Turtles, who were all trained by Master Splinter in the arts of ninjutsu. In the second film (Ninja Turtles: Secret of the Ooze), Leonardo was much more prominent and his leader position was brought into focus. Leonardo is once again sensitive, caring, and humorous in this story, but he now displays far more aggressive leadership tendencies. Along with Splinter and his brothers, Leonardo was forced to move in with April O’Neil temporarily. During their stay, he led them on a successful battle against a large group of criminals robbing nearby shops. When Splinter revealed that the Ooze had come from the TGRI corporation, Leonardo and his brothers headed there in hopes of finding new answers to their origins. They encountered Tatsu and The Foot ninjas there, and began fighting for possession of the last canister of mutagen.
This loss led to friction between Leonardo and Raphael, as Leonardo believed that their first priority should be finding a safe location for their new home, while Raphael was primarily concerned with find The Foot Clan. A new lair was found mere moments after Raphael left, and Leonardo grew more angry with his brother as they moved their belongings into it. However, he did not allow this anger to interfere with mounting a rescue for Raphael, which almost led to disaster when the other 3 Turtles were briefly captured. They managed to escape the mutant wolf and snapping turtle, Rahzar and Tokka, and withdrew to the sewers with Professor Jordan Perry, a scientist whom The Foot had abducted. Their next confrontation was somewhat more successful, Tokka and Rahzar were knocked down long enough for Donatello to catalyze the anti-mutagen, reverting them back to a normal snapping turtle and wolf.
However, this led to Leonardo and his brothers being seen by hundreds of humans in a nightclub as they fought Shredder and their mutant opponents. Just as the Turtles thought they had defeated Shredder, they discovered that he had instead been exposed to the mutagenic Ooze, which transformed him into a “Super Shredder“. Along with his brothers, Leonardo escaped into the ocean and was able to swim to shore, leaving the Shredder to be crushed under a falling boardwalk. They returned home, victorious, only to discover that Splinter had learned of their error. In the Mirage comics, all 4 of the Turtles wear red masks, but for the creators to tell them apart, Leonardo was written and redrawn to have an ocean-blue eye mask.
