Donna Troy is a comic book superheroine published by DC Comics. She first appeared in The Brave and the Bold vol. 1 #60 (July 1965), and was created by Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
Wonder Girl's origin as a non-Amazon orphan, rescued by Wonder Woman from an apartment building fire, is established in Teen Titans (vol. 1) #22 (August 1969). Unable to find any parents or family, Wonder Woman had brought the child to Paradise Island, where she had eventually been given Amazon powers by Paula Von Gunther's Purple Ray. Back 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.
Donna's origin is expanded in the January 1984 tale, "Who is Donna Troy?" Robin investigates the events surrounding the fire from which his old friend had been rescued as a toddler, discovering that Donna's birth mother was Dorothy Hinckley, a dying unwed teen who had given her up for adoption. After Donna's adoptive father Carl Stacey had been killed in a work-related accident, her adoptive mother Fay Stacey gave her up for adoption again, unable to raise the toddler because of mounting expenses. With Robin's help, Donna is reunited with Fay, who had married Hank Evans and given birth to two additional children, Cindy and Jerry. Donna marries Terry Long in a huge, lavish ceremony in Tales of the Teen Titans #50 (February 1985).
