Michelangelo: Party dude

Thirtysomething Mutant Ninja Turtles

Leonardo: Leads (the day shift at J.C. Penney)
Donatello:: Does machines for local criminal enterprise because how else does a gigantic machinist turtle make a living, damn it

Middle-Aged Mutant Ninja Turtles

Leonardo: Leads (raiding parties on World of Warcraft)

Elderly Mutant Ninja Turtles

Leonardo: Leads (unsuccessful effort to “get the band back together”/quiet life in Omaha)
Donatello:: Does not want to go back in there ever again
