Quote1 I don't know, Roy. I don't know where I'm from. I was adopted age seven. I have no memories prior to that. I don't even know where my powers come from. Quote2
Donna Troy src

Donna Troy is an Amazonian that was originally a young girl rescued from a fire by Wonder Woman. She then became a founding member of the Titans and the first Wonder Girl.

Origins

New 52 Origin

Donna was created by the Amazonian sorceress Derinoe through a magical clay ritual, with the intention of using her to destroy Wonder Woman.[5] The Amazons discovered Derinoe's plot and prevented it. In order to shield Donna from the truth of her origin, they gave her the false memory of being a normal girl who was rescued from a fire by Wonder Woman and brought to Themyscira to be raised as an Amazon.[6]

Following the cosmic upheavals of the Rebirth period, this character's history was revised.

Current Origin

Donna was born to "L. Casas" and his longtime girlfriend, Dorothy. Through unknown circumstances, Donna ended up left alone in an apartment building that caught fire. She was rescued by Wonder Woman, and the trauma resulted in a degree of memory loss. Unable to locate Donna's parents, Diana took Donna to live with the Amazons of Paradise Island, who helped train and raise her. In time, she was granted the powers of her fellow Amazons and became Diana's sidekick as Wonder Girl[7].

Teen Titans

Shortly thereafter, Donna ventured into Man's World and joined the first Teen Titans alongside Robin, Speedy, Kid Flash, Gnarrk, Herald, Hawk and Dove, Aqualad and Omen, adopting the alias Wonder Girl.

At some point, she married Terry Long and gave birth to Robert Long. Destined to become a Lord of Chaos, Donna struggled to understand Robert's true nature. She eventually split up with Terry, and, though Donna believed Robert to have died, he was actually kidnapped by Granny Goodness.[8].

Later on, she joined the Darkstars as Troia.[4] Donna died fighting a malfunctioning Superman Robot, but she would eventually be returned to life. Hippolyta remembered it as one of the great struggles of Donna's life.[9]

Donna and her teammates' memories were later wiped out in a conflict with Mister Twister when it was determined that the only way to prevent Mister Twister's escape was for Omen to erase the world's memories of the Teen Titans. Donna lost all memory of the team and her friends, and seemingly returned to Themyscira.

War-Torn

Wonder Woman Vol 5 1 Textless
This section of the history takes place during the New 52, between the events of Flashpoint and DC Rebirth. It was later revealed that much of Wonder Woman's history from this time was an elaborate illusion created by the Gods of Olympus to keep her away from Paradise Island. All or part of this section may have been part of that illusion and no longer valid in Rebirth.

Donna featured in Wonder Woman's illusions, which were caused by the Gods of Olympus. In these false memories, shortly after her creation, Donna Troy was told by Derinoe that she was to be Themyscira's savior for enemies both outside and within, and was named the new Queen at the council of Amazons.[10] Donna Troy believed that the island should belong to women alone, and as such, the Sons of Themyscira had to be killed. This brought her into conflict with the queen Diana, who had sworn to protect these men.[11]. After the conflict Diana locked Donna in prison in Olympus, waiting for her to accept redemption.

The Sanctuary Crisis

Sometime after the split of the Titans, Roy went to a rehab center for superheroes known as Sanctuary in order to receive mental help. During his stay at Sanctuary Roy, Wally and many other heroes were butchered by a mysterious killer. Donna was distraught after hearing the news, and days later attended Roy's funeral. During the funeral, which was hosted on a mountain top, Donna and her fellow Titans Garth; Lilith and Gnarrk listened as Roy's surrogate brother Bird gave a speech on their fallen teammate. After Bird had finished speaking, Donna spoke on her opinion of Roy and their time in the Teen Titans and Titans together. The whole group of mourners placed items on Roy's coffin that meant a lot to him and then left him in peace.[12] Donna would routinely return to his grave stone in the mountains to reminisce about their time together, placing a rose on the tomb every time.[13]

Infected Donna Troy 1

An infected Donna becomes Deathbringer

Donna was infected by The Batman Who Laughs while negotiating the brewing tensions between metahumans of Serenity Point, with the neighborhood watch set up by Borna being opposed tooth-and-nail by the dissenters led by Remy. After one of the men from neighborhood watch was injured by an unknown assailant, Donna went to the hospital to check up on him and blamed her poor leadership for the violence. The Batman Who Laughs took this opportunity to mock her for trying to fill the shoes of other heroes and baited her into his trap in the hospital. Over a week, her infection worsened while the situation in Serenity Point became violent after Remy was stabbed. Donna fled and isolated herself in the town, but the infection took complete hold of her and suppressed every other ego inside her except of a dark and raging Donna. She proceeded to take down all the members of her team, but was persuaded by Raven to stop and left the area to avoid harming her friends.[15]

Infected, Donna joined The Batman Who Laughs' Secret Six as Deathbringer. She first attacked Superman and Batman along with the rest of the Secret Six at the Fortress of Solitude. While beating Superman, Deathbringer reprimanded the heroes for how they failed her friends after the Sanctuary incident. Donna had a little argument with Sky Tyrant while they tried to hunt Batman, who was later rescued by Supergirl. Deathbringer then returned to stop Superman from making Jaime Reyes fight the infection. The Secret Six also managed to successfully infect Supergirl.[2] As the team tried to get a Satellite from Earth -22 to infect everyone by using one of the Anti-Monitor's multiversal tower, they failed after Batman and Superman destroyed said Satellite, but this was all a ruse created by the Batman Who Laughs while he escaped his cell under the Hall of Justice.[16] Donna was eventually cured from the infection by Lex Luthor.[17]

Trial of the Amazons

Donna arrived on Themyscira with Cassandra Sandsmark, Yara Flor and the Esquecidas of the Amazon to determine who would become the new champion of to guard Doom's Doorway. She sat with Cassie and the Esquecidas during the feast where it was decided that whoever won the contest, their queen would become queen of all the Amazons, something Nubia agreed to.[19] Before the contest was to begin, Donna offered herself as the champion for the Bana in the hopes of victory to give them equality among all the Amazons.[20] Before the contest could begin, the ground beneath the arena caved in trapping Diana, Donna, Yara and Philippus in a tunnel that even Philippus had no knowledge of. There they were forced to battle Echidna. Together they defeated the beast but were forced to leave Diana behind as the tunnel collapsed. Before the tunnel collapsed, Diana told them to warn the other Amazons Chaos had arrived.[4] Diana was able to escape and beat them to the arena. Before they could warn the others, Doom's Doorway broke open.[21] Donna and the rest of the Amazons battled the forces of Chaos. After Antiope and Atalanta sacrificed themselves to seal Chaos behind Doom's Doorway and sealed it behind them, Donna embraced Cassie. Days later, Donna watched as Faruka acknowledged Nubia as queen of all Amazons, and Donna saluted Nubia as her queen.[22]

Powers

  • Amazonian Physiology: Having been created through a ritual by Derinoe Donna possesses the same superhuman abilities of a naturally born Amazon. Superman claimed that Donna's powers could rival even Diana herself.[2]
    • Superhuman Strength: Donna has incredible physical strength that can be considered great even for Amazon's standards: after losing her memories when she met Tempest and a fight broke out she matched him blow for blow and sent him flying with a punch.[23] During her fight with Mammoth she was able to hold her own in the fight even against the much stronger colossus and even managed to break some of his teeth with a punch to the mouth.[24] During her period under the Batman Who Laughs control she casually grabbed Steel's Kinetic Hammer after it had been thrown against her and lounched it with enough strength to harm Miss Martian[15] and later she displayed enough brutal power to restrain and even hurt the mighty Superman[2]
    • Superhuman Stamina
    • Superhuman Durability: Donna possesses higher durability than common Amazons and can resist impacts that would easily kill normal humans, during her fight with Mammoth she took many blows from the powerful man and survived with only bloodied lips.[24] Despite her great durability she still has limits and attacks of sufficent power can cause great injury or even death as proved by that time when a Superman Robot killed her with a blast of heat vision.[9]
    • Superhuman Agility
    • Immortality
    • Superhuman Speed: Donna Troy was able knock Raven without being notice by her. She appears only as blur when moving at superhuman speeds.[15]
    • Flight: When Donna Troy became Deathbringer, she discovered the power to fly at high speeds.[15]
