Donna Troy is a fictional character and superheroine from the DC Comics. She is a Amazonian super-hero who began her career as the second Wonder Girl, being the partner of Wonder Woman. Donna would also use several other names including Troia and Wonder Woman during her career as a superheroine. Terry Long was her first husband with whom she had a child named Robert, and she was also married to Kyle Rayner. She is a founding member of the Teen Titans, and has also been involved with the Challengers from Beyond, Darkstars and Justice League of America.
She was created by the late Bob Haney and the late Bruno Premiani, and first appeared in The Brave and the Bold #60 in July of 1965.
Donna Troy has appeared in numerous cartoon television shows and films. She made her animation debut in The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, being voiced by the late Julie Bennett. She also made her live adaptation debut in the DC Universe series Titans, and was played by Conor Leslie until her death in the second season finale.
Donna Troy was originally created by the sorceress Magala as a playmate for Diana during her youth. Magala used a magic mirror to make a duplicate of Diana who looked identical in appearance but had their own unique personality. Unfortunately, the villainess Dark Angel kidnapped Donna after she mistook her for Diana and subjected her to live through thousands of lifetimes that would each end in tragedy.
In one of her lifetimes, Donna was orphaned by her mother Dorothy Hinckley and her adoptive father Carl Stacey was killed in a accident. She was orphaned again by Carl's widow Fay Stacey before her chain of tragedies was finally broken by the mythological titan Rhea, who saved Donna from a fire. Rhea took Donna to New Cronus where she would be raised as one of twelve children that were chosen to one day become godly successors to the Titans of Myth. Donna would train alongside her fellow Titan Seeds until she was ready to return to Earth at the age of thirteen with no memory of her time at New Cronus. She later decided to become the superheroine Wonder Girl after gaining superhuman powers, and became one of the founding members of the Teen Titans.
Donna would meet and fall in love with Professor Terry Long, and the two soon married and had a child together. When she was confronted by the Titans of the future, they informed her that her child would endanger the world. She gave up her powers to prevent this, but she would later return to the team after being inducted into the Darkstars. Donna was then divorced by Terry due to her career as crime-fighter putting her husband and child in danger. Terry and their children would die in a car accident, and Donna briefly dated Kyle Rayner until this event happened. The Dark Angel would appear to make Donna start a different life, which resulted in everyone but Hippolyta and Wally West to forget her existence.
The two would help Donna restore her life and break the curse that Dark Angel put on her, and she was then adopted by Hippolyta as her daughter. Donna returned to the Teen Titans, but would be killed by a superbot that was called for aid by the android Indigo. It was later revealed that like everyone else after the destruction of the multiverse, Donna was an amalgam of every alternate version from different realities. Donna was reborn after her death by the android, and she gained all knowledge of her alternate versions and was trusted with the Universe Orb.
During the events of "Infinite Crisis", Donna led a group of superheroes to fight Alexander Luthor, and used a red sun eater to defeat Superboy-Prime. In the "One Year Later" storyline, Donna assumed the title of Wonder Woman, and worked with Kyle to fight a Monitor who attempted to remove them from the time stream. The two would defeat the Monitor and returned to Earth to see Rayner's mother pass way, and Donna would later work with the Teen Titans to battle Deathstroke and the Titans East.
Donna Troy's history was altered for the New 52. In this continuity, sometime after Wonder Woman allowed male Amazons live in a settlement on Paradise Island, the treacherous sorceress Derinoe created Donna Troy from clay as part of a plot to overthrow Diana as queen of the Amazons. In Diana's absence, Donna pushed to have the Amazonian males exterminated and managed to convince a number of females to join her in a surprise attack on the male settlement.
When Wonder Woman returned to the island, she was horrified to learn that nearly all the males were brutally slaughtered and confronted Donna over her actions, causing a battle for leadership between them. The pair continued to fight one another until Diana used the Lasso Of Truth to show Donna what it truly meant to be an Amazon. Donna yielded to Wonder Woman and she was imprisoned within the dungeon of Mount Olympus until the day she was ready to seek redemption.
Donna Troy's history was further altered during the events of DC Rebirth. Like her New 52 origin, Donna was sculptured from clay by the sorceress Derinoe in a plot to overthrow the Amazon queen. However, Derinoe's plan was foiled by the Amazons before it could escalate further and Donna had false memories stitched into her mind to be shielded from her true origins. In these false memories, Donna was a normal girl who was rescued by Wonder Woman and bought to Themyscira to be raised by Amazons.
