Now, I think having the girl (now named Donna) being given powers by the Purple Ray is problematic (it would open up a "why not give powers to others"/"why has a villain not tried to steal that technology" can of worms), but this particular part of the story could be modified. Maybe Donna does something while living on the island that is so heroic, so selfless, so impressively worthy of admiration that she gets a "gift" from one of the Olympian gods? That gift could be superpowers, which combined with all the training that Donna has been getting from the Amazons turns her into a Wonder-Girl. I don't know, I'm not a writer, but I think that retaining the basics of that origing is just the best course of action. Adopted amazon turns into a champion for good, just like her older "sister". And then reinvent all the villains that she has amassed throught her comic book history in all of those reboots.
    What I've always found odd. John Bryne actually had the perfect character to retain Donna's origin story. At the time, Hippolyta was the first Wonder Woman and all John had to do was have Hippy be the one who rescued Donna and brought her to Themyscira.

    This is beautiful.

    Some interesting developments concerning Donna in Wonder Woman #752: Diana references Donna as one of the few who are able to gracefully slip through the lasso's loop. A small panel on the left shows what appears to be Diana sword training with a young Donna on the beach. A subsequent panel shows Diana and a teenage/young adult Donna training with the lasso and Donna exclaiming that the lasso only works if Diana can catch her. That means Donna was either brought or created on the island as a young child and trained underneath Diana for some time. Donna avoiding the lasso demonstrates super-human speed and agility.

    If Donna was a child and grew up on the island, she was not created as Diana's duplicate/playmate like Byrne's origin and her original origin of being saved from a fire by Diana and adopted by Queen Hippolyta could be canon once again (one can only hope). She still may have been created as a weapon, like the Finch origin but, as a child instead of a full-grown adult as her 52 depiction. Either way, the idea of a young Donna Troy growing up on Themyscira and mentored by an adult Diana displays a much more significant relationship between these two women, with Diana having much more influence concerning the shaping of Donna Troy.

    Thanks for posting this info!

    It might mean that Donna has some special attributes or abiities besides super-speed and agility. She may be able to bypass the lasso's ability due to magic or a partial magical nature.
