Leonardo da Vinci was a famed Italian renaissance painter, sculptor, engineer and writer.


Born as the illegitimate son of a notary, Piero da Vinci, and a peasant girl, Caterina, at Vinci in the region of Florence.


Batman met da Vinci with Carter Nichols' help.[2] Da Vinci was once summoned by Lex Luthor and Joker with a time machine in order to help them in crimes.[3] Da Vinci created his own time machine and used it to summon Wonder Woman back to his time in order for her to aid his friend Lora, who was being targeted by a "witch hunter" who wanted her property.[4]


Michelle Carter once stood model for one of his best known paintings, the Mona Lisa. Intoxicated by her smile, he wished nothing more than to paint her. Fate wasn't so lucky when Michelle's brother took her back to Rome.[5]

With some trouble Da Vinci succeeded in recapturing Michelle's smile, but changed her hair and clothing to black -- the Mona Lisa was finished.
