Teen Titans Cosplay: Wonder Girl [Donna Troy] (Unidentified) Cosplay 12 SEP 2013

An unidentified American cosplayer appeared at the 2011 Super Megafest convention, bringing with her all the spandex that comes with Donna Troy, Wonder Girl! (From the Teen Titans in case you were wondering…)

Wonder Girl and the other Teen Titans were next featured in Showcase #59 (December 1965) before being spun off into their own series with Teen Titans (vol. 1) #1 (February 1966). With the character called only Wonder Girl, or “Wonder Chick” by her teammates, her status as either the younger Wonder Woman displaced in the timeline or another character altogether is not explained until Teen Titans (vol. 1) #22 (August 1969).

In a story by Marv Wolfman and Gil Kane it is established that Wonder Girl is a non-Amazon orphan, rescued by Wonder Woman from an apartment building fire. Unable to find any parents or family, Wonder Woman brings the child to Paradise Island, where she is eventually given Amazon powers by the Purple Ray. The story ends with Wonder Girl wearing a new costume and hairstyle, adopting the secret identity Donna Troy.

Or at least, that’s how the original story goes.

Donna’s superhuman powers have changed several times over the years, but in all of her various incarnations, they have always consisted of considerable superhuman strength, endurance, speed, and the power of flight. In her pre-Crisis origin, Donna was granted those powers by the Amazon’s Purple Ray, and these powers increased as she grew older. She also wielded a lasso of her own, but it apparently had no magical properties like Diana’s Lasso of Truth.

Titans Cosplay: Troia [Donna Troy] (Unknown) Cosplay 12 MAY 2013

An unidentified American cosplayer appeared at the 2011 Super Megafest convention, bringing with her all the spandex that comes with Troia, aka Donna Troy, also known as Wonder Girl during her younger years, and who is almost always associated with the Titans brand…

Donna’s superhuman powers have changed several times over the years, but in all of her various incarnations, they have always consisted of considerable superhuman strength, endurance, speed, and the power of flight. In her pre-Crisis origin, Donna was granted those powers by the Amazon’s Purple Ray, and these powers increased as she grew older. She also wielded a lasso of her own, but it apparently had no magical properties like Diana’s Lasso of Truth.

This particular costume made its appearance in July 2008 when DC started up the Titans line again, restricting the series name to simply “Titans”, so as not to clash with its kiddie “Teen Titans” property.

Comic Book Art: Donna Troy by Nemesi-Har-Aralis Comic Book Art | Comic Books 19 JAN 2012

Donna Troy has been known to go under the names of Wonder Girl, Darkstar, Troia and just plain Donna Troy, which gives you a good indication that she’s had quite the convoluted comic book history over the years. Regardless of all that, she is probably easiest to remember as being quite similar to Wonder Woman in terms of abilities, i.e. enhanced strength, durability and flight, being an officially recognised Amazonian and all that, just with a whole lot of added cosmic knowledge, or rather, a knowledge of the entire DC multiverse!

This particular Amazon has of course been affliated with a number of groups over the years, including the Teen Titans, Darkstars, Titans of Myth, Challengers from Beyound and the Justice League.

And just in case you were wondering, this engaging, moody and beautiful rendition of Donna courtesy of artist Nemesi-Har-Aralis.
