Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #42

The split within the Turtles is finally explained as Leonardo reveals his plan to Splinter in the latest issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Realizing that both the Shredder and the Technodrome offer very real threats to both themselves and the city Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #42 reveals Leo and Donatello's plan to insert Donnie as a double-agent and lure the Foot into a trap allowing the Turtles to pit their two enemies against each other while leaving the Technodrome largely unguarded.

As plans go it's pretty darn good and makes for a nice twist, although it still leaves plenty of room for something to go wrong and the leaves the door open to either one of the Turtles' enemies realizing how the Turtles have used them. Of course if it works the Turtles will be able to destroy the war machine as their enemies destroy each other. But if things went down that easily where would that leave the series as the heroes would be left with no enemies to fight tomorrow? Worth a look.
