Because of her frequent adventures with the Turtles, she lost her job at Channel 6 and became a freelance reporter.
In the winter Archie Special, April was mutated into a turtle herself. This made her the first official female turtle introduced to the series, three years before Venus de Milo 's debut. Archie also published two sets of three-part April O'Neil mini-series. Dreamwave Productions[ edit ] The second issue of the Dreamwave Productions series based on the animated series focused entirely on O'Neil, consisting of a dream sequence showing how she had been pressured into a scientific career by her family despite having an interest in journalism.
IDW[ edit ] In the continuity of the IDW comicsApril is a very bright science student who interns at Baxter Stockman's genetic laboratory Stock Gen, where her father used to work before a stroke rendered him paralyzed.
It is there that she first meets the Turtles and Splinter at that time ordinary lab animals subjected to an intelligence-enhancing serum and gives the Turtles their names.
April later nearly becomes a murder victim during a nocturnal break-in by a group of ninjas the Foot Clanwho steal the Turtles along with several samples of Stockman's secret mutagenetic projects; the attempt at her life shakes her so much that she decides to take self-defense lessons from her fellow student Casey Jones, who later introduces her to the now-mutated Turtles and Splinter.
April subsequently accompanies or assists the Turtles in their adventures and battles against their enemies, in the course of which she investigates Stockman's clandestine operations and makes an important contact in the Pantheon by incurring the sympathies of one of their members, Aka. While she and Casey begin a romantic relationship, Casey's self-doubts about his ability to protect his loved ones eventually cause them to drift apart.
She had a strong nature and passion for her work, frequently expressing disagreement with her employer Burne Thompson's assignments. April was best friends with Irma Langinstein, the receptionist at Channel 6.
She lived in an apartment in New York Citythough during the course of the series she was forced to relocate several times due to a variety of Turtle-related mishaps. Thinking quickly, she managed to squeeze into a storm drain and ran from the mob until she hit a dead end.
The Turtles were nearby and defeated the punks. She was taken back to their sewer lair, where they explained their origins to her. At first, she believed them to be responsible for the equipment thefts, but they agreed to help find the true culprits if she kept quiet about the Turtles' existence.
April quickly became their major link to the outside world since their unusual appearance effectively precluded them from functioning above ground without some sort of disguise.
April's friendship with the Turtles resulted in the opportunity to film exclusive footage of their encounters with Shredder, but despite her intimate knowledge of the details of their lives, she tended to keep her professional news reports about them impersonal and mysterious. She was a vocal champion of their cause, despite Burne Thompson's opinion that the Turtles were a menace to the city, and most episodes generally showed her attempting to convince Burne and the New Yorkers that the Turtles were not criminals.
By the episode "Doomquest," she finally succeeded in this by publicly exposing Lord Dregg's plans to take over the Earth via propaganda campaigns. April was frequently kidnapped by Shredder and used as bait in order to lure the Turtles out of hiding and destroy them. In Florida on vacation, she and the Turtles found a body of water contaminated with a mutagen that made mutants feel youthful, while physically de-aging humans into four-year-old versions of themselves.
Donatello did not allow April to enter the water, to which she lamented, "Oh, great! I'm doomed to be a decrepit twenty-eight-year-old hag! Her most important contribution to the Turtles was her access to research via the Channel 6 computers; using this information she could alert the Turtles to trouble and possible case leads.
Her blue news van had classic headlights and the Channel 6 News logo on each side. April could usually be found wearing a distinctive yellow jumpsuit with white boots. By the ninth season, April worked freelance for reasons never specified, and exchanged her yellow jumpsuit for a brown leather jacket. She continued to help the Turtles even after the defeat of Shredder and his subsequent exile to Dimension X. Being a news reporter, she is able to find and gather information for the Turtles and Splinter.
She is also skilled at operating a number of different vehicles. Portrayal[ edit ] April was originally voiced by Renae Jacobs. Renae Jacobs auditioned for the role in Los Angeles in She developed her initial personification of O'Neil while preparing for the audition, having not read the comics.
I felt that she should be a very strong character with very good convictions, she should be a loyal friend; she should be serious about her work and she wanted to be taken seriously, not just looked at as another pretty face.
Renae Jacobs  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series [ edit ] In the cartoon seriesApril, voiced by Veronica Taylor in English, got a costume change and her hair color was altered to a dark magenta tone for the new incarnation of the animated series produced by 4Kids Entertainment. However, her role was similar to that of the Mirage Studios character: April made much more use of her scientific expertise and she often used her computer skills to aid the Turtles.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
She developed a closer relationship to Donatello, who shared many of her interests. In Season 7 she sometimes helped Donatello to collect Splinter's data bits. April developed a modest knowledge of combat skills after training with Splinter. Her quick thinking was often instrumental to the Turtles' survival. April is romantically attracted to Casey Jones, though their contrasting personalities often make them bicker.
By the third season, the two seemed to have quite a serious romantic relationship. In the series finale, "Wedding Bells and Bytes", she and Casey finally got married. The young adult April continues to learn how to defend herself against Foot ninjas and other monstrosities by undergoing basic ninja training from the Turtles. She is quite skilled in some useful firearms, and can easily go through a laser grid with no problem at all.
At one point, she became psionically linked with a female mermaid-like mutant who had telepathically shown her the hardships of her childhood and that the few of her kind were on the verge of extinction. In addition to her recently developed ninjutsu skills, April is incredibly intelligent, smart and resourceful in complex scientific fields; similar to her good friend Donatello.
So much that she even had worked for the eccentric Baxter Stockman as his assistant. She was able to hack into the computers of Shredder's stronghold and even breach several codes. She was seen wielding a katana in the special episode " Turtles Forever ".
Her shoulder-length bright orange hair is tied with a white ponytail holder which becomes undone, at times, if she is under great stress or rage.
Unlike her previous counterparts, she is a sixteen-year-old teenager as opposed to being a young adult in her late twenties and possesses exceptionally strong psychic powers, which she eventually learns to develop more and increase drastically throughout the fourth season.
This is due to her being a half human, half Kraang-mutant as her mother was abducted and experimented on by the Kraang before she was born.
Her inherent psionic abilities are first hinted at in Episode 7, "Monkey Brains", when she had detected that a mutant-monkey was, in fact, a human scientist; merely saying that she "sometimes get a feeling about things", implying that she possesses extrasensory abilities as well.
It even enabled her to hear far off sounds that Splinter, with his superhuman hearing, could not.

She is mentally capable of sensing the presence of others nearby, seeing into a person's very soul, and psionically hearing the thoughts of the Kraang. Under pressure, she emits an incredibly strong psionic wave that incapacitates those around her. At one point, she displayed the telekinetic ability to levitate several cards in midair, and became mentally linked with a fish-bird-worm mutant.
In the episode Outer Space saga the first half of Season FourApril donned a yellow spacesuit that resembles her 80's suit and used a ray gun for defense. For the second half of Season 4, it is now black with yellow stripes to indicate her high status as full-fledged kunoichi.
Upon being given a small fragment of the mystical Sol Star from the ancient Aeons, her inherent psionic abilities have further developed and grew considerably much stronger; to the point of having full and far greater use of her telekinesismentally detect lies and discern truth from her victims, and sense incoming danger. She even began telekinetically controlling the direction of her metal tessen fan, making its targeting range more accurate from a distance.
She eventually learned to erect an exceptionally strong telekinetic shield for defense, make a soft landing, and lift herself and her friends in the air by encasing them in a light yellow orb of telekinetic energy. In addition, she is now fully capable of tracking mutants, wherever they may be; another of the many more psychic and extrasensory abilities her Sol Star necklace helped her to develop.
According to Splinter, her natural intuition is very near perfection, as it is one of the many powerful psionic abilities that she possesses. In the fifth and last season of the show titled Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesApril continues to be there for the Turtles and help them adjust to moving on with their lives without Splinter.
Unfortunately, her innate, extraordinarily strong mental powers prove to be ineffective against the mighty demodragon, Kavaxasas he is not of the earthly plane. She worked together with Karai in finding Bebop heading to Don Visiozo's restaurant, where a vial containing the heart of the Super Shredder was being held.
Aware of the Seal of the Ancients power over Kavaxas, she attempted to use it by combing its dark magic with her own growing sensory abilities, but was unsuccessful. As the showdown between Kavaxas and the revived Zombie Shredder grew imminent, she, Casey and the Turtles were approached by several Foot cultists, April psionically detected a change of heart from Fishface.
Later, she stayed with Casey, Raphael and Donatello, to try and stop the dozens of spirits' of the departed with Donnie's new specter-destroyers. She was amazed by the sudden arrival of Splinter's spirit, who had arrived to hold off Ho Chan. Afterwards, she, the Turtles, Karai and Leatherhead, all bed their final goodbyes to Hamato Yoshi's spirit, as he returned to the afterlife.
She was soon comforted by the appearance of the sunset, as she was sure that they would never see one again and remained to enjoy its everlasting beauty and warmth before heading back to the Lair. Some time later, April fought alongside the Turtles, Mona Lisaand Karai to put an end to the rogue Salamandrian called "the Newtralizer".
When he blasts with his electrical bursts, she defended herself by erecting a yellow shield out of telekinetic energy.
She used her extraordinarily strong telekinesis to open the water pipes, which appeared to weaken and disorient him. In a three-part special episode, which is somehow set in a fifty-year apocalyptic future, "Raphael: Mutant Apocalypse", April is killed along with the entire human population and most mutants from being hit with a mutagen bomb that had been mysteriously triggered by an unknown adversary. In "The Frankenstein Experiment", she is ordered by her "master" Dracula to seek out the Turtles and eliminate them.
In the Lair, she succeeded in biting Donatello and turning him into a full vampire as well. Leonardo explains to her about their time-traveling ally Renetthat she is "the greatest time master that ever lived.
