    Then there was all kinds of weird temporal and multiversal shenanigans involving Steve Trevor...

    I tend not to overthink it. In my head canon, Diana rescued Donna as an infant, got custody and brought to be raised in Paradise Island.

    Paradise Island is a place where time flows differently than the outside world. And because Donna was a mortal human raised on Paradise Island, plus an unexpected effect of the Purple Ray which enabled her to have Amazonian abilities, she grew/matured differently. Thus, she was able to be rescued as an infant and still emerge into the outside world a teenager like Dick.

    This stands out in my mind despite the years because my fiance and I were talking with the game designer afterward. Every boxed game came jam packed with stuff, including write-ups for all the major DC Heroes.

    Wonder Woman was listed as one strength level below Superman, and we asked why. We were told that a lot of research had gone into the game with people looking up feats and such, and that DC had final say over the game.

    They originally listed Diana as having a strength equal to Superman, but DC knocked her down one level.
    Thank you for substantiating my memory!

    I remember being awed by the "being able to lift Mt. Everest" factoid... too bad DC required Diana to be below Kal-El by a level. That's annoying.
