Titans (DC Universe) “Donna Troy” Featurette

Meet Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl

As The Titans go their separate ways, Dick turns to an old friend, Donna Troy (CONOR LESLIE), for answers.

Wonder Woman’s younger sister Wonder Girl[ made her first appearance outside the Wonder Woman book in The Brave and the Bold #60 (July 1965) as a member of a “junior Justice League” called the Teen Titans, consisting of Robin (Dick Grayson)Kid Flash (Wally West), and Aqualad (the sidekicks of BatmanThe Flash, and Aquaman, respectively). After next being featured in Showcase #59 (December 1965), the Teen Titans were spun off into their own series with Teen Titans #1, cover-dated February 1966.

Writer Marv Wolfman and artist Gil Kane created an origin for Wonder Girl in Teen Titans #22 (July–Aug. 1969) which introduced the character’s new costume.[ This story established Wonder Girl’s origin as a non-Amazon orphan, rescued by Wonder Woman from an apartment building fire. Unable to find any parents or family, Wonder Woman brought the child to Paradise Island, where she eventually was given Amazon powers by Paula Von Gunther‘s Purple Ray. In 1969, Wonder Girl dons a new, all-red bodysuit-style costume, lets her hair fall loose, and – since thus far she has been called only Wonder Girl or “Wonder Chick” by her teammates — adopts the secret identity Donna Troy.

Donna remains with the Teen Titans until the series’ cancellation with issue #43 in February 1973. She is still part of the team when the comic picks up again with #44 in November 1976. Teen Titans is canceled again in February 1978 with issue #53, with Donna and the others — no longer “teens” — going their separate ways.

Akiva GoldsmanGeoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti created the Titans, which features Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson / Robin, the leader of the Titans, alongside Anna Diop as StarfireTeagan Croft as Raven and Ryan Potter as Beast BoyTitans premiered on October 12, 2018, and is set to comprise 12 episodes.
