Donald Fite is an Agent of A.P.E.S. the All-Purpose Enforcement Squad. He is one half of the duo of Fite 'n Maad along with Ishido Maad. He is the father of Anita Fite aka Empress, a member of Young Justice.
Fite 'n Maad hounded the team Young Justice during its early days. They had D.E.O. security clearance, but the D.E.O. seemed unhappy with the time Fite 'n Maad were spending on Young Justice. Young Justice initially ran into Fite 'n Maad when they were investigating a mysterious archaeological dig. The resulting conflict resulted in Young Justice discovering their Super-Cycle and raising the ire of Fite 'n Maad.
Fite 'n Maad next captured the Young Justice member Secret and imprisoned her In their hidden base within Mount Rushmore. Young Justice flew to the rescue, destroying Washington's nose, and ticking off Fite 'n Maad in the process.
Fite 'n Maad were part of a government campaign against underage heroes. After the members of Young Justice cleared themselves of any wrongdoing, Fite 'n Maad were told to lay off the heroes.
Donald Fite later introduced Anita to the team and it was later revealed he did this because he knew she was Empress. He encouraged the friendship between Empress and the team and was glad that she was helping others.
He was later murdered by the Baron who was his wife father Agua Sin Gaaz while on a mission with Ishido in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was left tied up in a cabin after being beaten by the Baron's Antibodies which exploded. Secret said he was dead before the explosion and when Anita reached him she said he wasn't breathing, so he was most likely dead because Secret would be able to know being a warder. Empress along with Robin, Slobo and The Ray went into Secret to try and save him, but he said it was his time and he had to go on.
Through the Baron's experiments of turning people back into babies and going through life again, Donald was able to come back as a baby along with his wife when their soul's escaped out of Secret. Empress then began to care for him and her mother.
