IDW Publishing's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

In Feudal Japan, Hamato Yoshi is a member of the Foot Clan, led by Oroku Saki. After seeing Saki make a ruthless choice, he leaves and is classified a traitor. Saki then orders the clan to kill Yoshi's wife and four sons. As the Foot Clan kills Yoshi's wife, Tang Shen, her dying wish is for the rest of the family to be safe. After fleeing for eleven seasons. Yoshi and his sons are killed by Saki.

In the present, Yoshi and his sons are re-incarnated as a rat named Splinter and four turtles, contained in a research facility called StockGen, owned by Baxter Stockman, a scientist who has secretly allied himself with Krang, a ruthless Utrom from Dimension X. But the Foot Clan still lives, and they break into Stockgen one night and steal some chemicals, which, after a long chase, end up mutating Splinter and the turtles into humanoid creatures.

Splinter, remembering his previous life, decides to train his sons in Ninjutsu. Each of Turtles were named by April O'Neil, an intern at StockGen, after famous Renaissance painters: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael.
