Donna Troy was created by Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani, first appearing in Brave and the Bold#60. (1965) Donna Troy’s publication history is a convoluted one as her background is based in the Wonder Woman titles, but her character development happened almost exclusively in the Teen Titans books. Thus, while the events which occurred in the Teen Titans defined her life she was still anchored to occurrences in the Wonder Woman title if they were changed. This had little effect on her during the Silver Age, as very few changes occurred. However, following Crisis on Infinite Earths her background was completely destroyed with the reboot of the Wonder Woman title. Since this time writers have struggled to find a place for Donna in the DC Universe.
Donna Troy also known as Troia was the first Wonder Girl, Wonder Woman’s adopted little sister, she became a clone of her big sister gaining all her powers and abilities. Donna is a founding member of the Teen Titans and later once served as Wonder Woman in her sister’s absence and is now a member of the JLA.
