History: Donna Hinckley was given up for adoption at birth.
She was briefly adopted by the Stacy family, but the person who
brokered the deal was quite crooked and arranged to have her kidnapped
back to be re-adopted/sold to another couple. While in the care
of a couple in the broker's employ, the building they were staying
in burned to the ground. Donna was the sole survivor, rescued
by Drusilla, the heroine formerly known as Wonder Girl in the
Golden Age. Thinking the child had no family, Drusilla decided
to adopt her and raised Donna as her own. (the name Donna was
found on her sole possession, a battered Teddy bear given her
by the Stacy's.) When Donna was eleven years old, one of Dru's
adventures brought them both into contact with the Titans of myth.
Recognizing great potential in Dru's charge, the gods offered
to help Donna reach that potential as one of their Titan seeds
in New Chronos. Honored by the parents of her gods offer, Dru
left Donna in their care. Before leaving, Dru gave Donna her bracelets,
lasso, and one of her old costumes to wear as the Titans' champion.
Dru had long since abandoned using any kind of costume in her
adventuring, and had found a collapsible transparent shield years
before that took the place of her bracelets.
Despite the assurances of the Titans, this will be the last the
two see of each other. For in an effort to maintain the secrecy
of their activities, Donna's memories were partially erased when
she was returned to earth a few years later. She remembered much
of the Amazon code Dru had taught her, but her memories of Dru
herself were smudged. As Wonder Girl, Donna joined the original
Teen Titans, and remained a member until they disbanded. During
this time she took the last name Troy. She also briefly dated
Roy "Speedy" Harper. When Raven reformed the Titans
later on, Donna once again joined the team.
Now in her late teens, she had established a career for herself
as a photographer, and had met and fell in love with history professor
Terry Long. The two would eventually get engaged, after her long
time friend Dick Grayson helped piece together as much of Donna's
past as they could. Though Dick was able to reunite Donna with
the Stacy's, and had uncovered Drusilla's role in saving and raising
Donna, for whatever reason, he could not locate Drusilla herself
until the day of Terry and Donna's wedding. Their reunion was
short lived, as Dru apparently died shortly thereafter battling
After Crisis, Donna met the new Wonder Woman, and through her
other Amazons. She did not reveal the name of the Amazon who raised
her however, since Dru had made her promise not to, fearing any
shame or punishment Dru had coming for leaving the island would
pass to Donna. (Time travel, it creates headaches. Dru can't reveal
herself until Polly goes back in time and comes back, or else
she risks altering the timeline.) Diana and Donna form a close
bond, and begin to refer to each other as "sister".
Later, the dying Titan of myth Phoebe appeared to Wonder Girl,
seeking her aid. One of the Titan seeds, Sparta, had gone mad
and threatened New Chronos. Wonder Girl and her fellow Titans
saved New Chronos, and Donna Troy at last learned the truth about
her upbringing with the Titans of myth. In reward for her loyalty
and to show their esteem for their chosen daughter, the Titan-gods
gave Donna Troy special gifts. These ornaments and tokens came
with special powers and abilities attached to each one. Upon returning
to earth, Donna Troy fashioned these gifts into a new uniform
- and a new identity - Troia!
Donna Troy soon found out she was pregnant. As her pregnancy
continued, a group called the Team Titans emerged, claiming to
be from the future. The Team Titans mission: Kill Donna Troy before
she can give birth to the man who, in their future, would become
the evil Lord Chaos. Lord Chaos also emerged, determined to ensure
his own future. Troia eventually gave birth, and with the help
of the New Titans and the Team Titans, she saved her son Robert
while defeating Lord Chaos. The Titans of myth helped in the ensuing
battle as well. Ultimately, Donna Troy decided to give up her
Troia identity, and become a normal human. The Titans of myth
granted this wish, and left Donna Troy powerless.
Donna Troy and the Team Titans relocated to a farm in New Jersey.
Donna tried to live a normal life, and provide a home for the
time-lost Team Titans. Fate was not kind. Villains and disasters
struck their new home. This led Donna to re-think her decision.
She petitioned the Titans of myth to grant her powers once again.
She was rejected. Undaunted, Donna Troy found her new calling
- as part of a galactic police force - she became a Darkstar.
Events in Donna Troy's life soon took a bad turn; Her farm in
New Jersey was destroyed; The time Crisis known as Zero Hour wiped
out all the Team Titans except for Terra and Mirage; Worst of
all, it took a toll on her once happy marriage. Terry Long and
Donna Troy divorced and Terry was granted sole custody of their
young son. Donna sought a new direction in her life through the
Darkstars and the Titans. Soon, she met Kyle Rayner, the new Green
Lantern, who helped ease her pain and loneliness. Events led to
the break up of the Titans, and shortly after, Donna Troy gave
up her Darkstar identity to live the life of a 'normal' woman
Then, tragedy struck. Donna was given news that her ex-husband,
step daughter and her infant son died in a horrible car accident.
Devastated by the news, she withdrew from Kyle. Her life seemed
at the lowest ebb. It was then she encountered the Dark Angel,
who confused matters further by filling Donna and Diana's heads
with fanciful tales and curses. Before all was said and done,
Donna was erased from existence, then restored with the aide of
Wonder Woman's magic lasso and some assistance from the Flash.
During this period many things were revealed, including Dru's
part in Donna's life, and that it was the Dark Angel's manipulations
that helped cause the dissolution of Donna's marriage and the
death of her family, even Dru's absence for the early part of
Donna's heroic career was due to the sorceress's elaborate revenge
plot on her two Golden Age foe's.
After a galaxy hopping adventure that saw Donna's mystic Troia
armor restored to her, and with it her powers, Donna found herself
swept up in the events of Mongul's attempted invasion of Earth.
After aiding her old team in defending Los Angeles, an emotionally
battered and somewhat bitter Donna Troy must now decide what course
her life will take from here.
Powers: Donna possesses the superhuman strength, reflexes
and durability. She can also fly at great speed. She has the ability
to generate force fields, the exact extent of this power is unknown.
Since her resurrection, she seems to have become an embodiment
of truth. What that means is as yet unclear.
