One of the best aspects of the San Diego Comic Convention is the overwhelming assortment of exclusives made available to attendees. The 2009 exclusive, which was available during the show from July 22-July 26.
April's name itself came from Kevin's real-life girlfriend at the time who was named April, and I heard she was black , although I could be wrong here. When it was mentioned to Laird, he basically said Kevin was lying. That April was always meant to be a caucasian redhead (hence the Irish last name). April appearance was changed in the comics compared to the real life April. I don't know the real story, I guess we'll find out sooner or later. It does not matter to me she is still a cool character.
In the original Mirage Comics storyline for Eastman and Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, April O'Neil (who originally sported a jumpsuit) was a skilled computer programmer and started out as an assistant for the villainous scientist Baxter Stockman. April O'Neil already proved in her teens a flair for computers and was a clever hacker. At the age of 27 years, her work began life as a laboratory assistant to Baxter Stockman, to which she helped program his Mouser robots, but when she discovered that Baxter was using his Mousers to burrow into bank vaults and steal from them, she attempted to flee Baxter's workshop and found herself in the sewers running for her life, with several Mousers in pursuit.
Three of the Turtles happened to come across her and save her and brought her back to their lair, where she would meet Splinter and found out about their origin. With her new friends, she returned to Baxter's hideout and defeated him. The Turtles later successfully fended off a Mouser invasion after Baxter programmed the Mousers to attack them. As the series went on, though their various adventures together, she became a closer friend to the Turtles and their link to the outside world. The Turtles also lived for a time with April when Splinter disappeared.
After leaving her job with Baxter, she decided to reopen her father's antique store she inherited 'Second Time Around'. During the Shredder's sudden return (What Goes Around... Comes Around!/Silent Partner/Return to New York story arcs) the shop came under attack by The Shredder and the Foot Clan (who had come for the Turtles), and was destroyed in the ensuing battle. April, the Turtles and their new friend Casey Jones had to escape to Casey's family farm house in Northampton, Massachusetts where she later had nightmares about the Foot Clan's attack.
A relationship that greatly influenced April was that with Casey Jones. Initially, the two could not stand each other, but during these events she would know Casey better and in time take a liking to him. During the mid-90s, April would live with her sister Robyn for a while during the events of City at War and find out their father died. Looking for a new place to live, she just happened to find the apartment Casey was living in. Eventually she'd marry Casey and they'd raise his adopted daughter Shadow Jones together as a family.

One of Trini's pet causes was the environment. She was always heading up drives to clean up the environment. Not only did Trini clean-up parks, but she also planted seeds for future trees as well. Trini was also involved in the Big Sister program which she did for her little cousin. Trini loves animals as well, trying to help strays find a home. Trini enjoyed life and made time to have fun. She had a wonderful doll collection, which Rita actually used one as monster. Trini liked to host food festivals; she enjoyed the picnics, carnival, concerts, masquerade balls, talent contests, dances and the beach. Trini was a big help behind the scenes of any school theatrical production
Trini enjoyed various athletic venues. Not only did she work on her martial arts, but enjoyed volleyball, scuba diving, mountain motor biking and basketball as well. During a sporting event at school, Trini helped her team win the Noble Lion Trophy. Trini was always up for the challenge of learning new skills. She took on the task of learning the style of the Mantis Kung Fu with her complete concentration.
Changes on the horizon for Trini. A world teen summit was coming to Angel Grove and was going to select three teens from Angel Grove to attend the world Peace Summit in Switzerland. Trini, along with Jason and Zack, was selected to attend. Trini had served the Rangers well and, with Zordon's blessing, she transferred her power to Aisha Campbell and left for the world Peace Summit.
