    Default What if Donna Troy was multiple people?

    I saw this idea somewhere else and the idea appealed to me.
    What if every origin for Donna Troy was in fact a new character instead of being a reinvention of the same one.

    This left me wondering just how many different Donnas we would end up with and how they may differ from one another if it was in fact a thing.
    Like I know New 52 Donna would be some sort of clay golem with a pegasus and the ability to 'see the fates of people'
    But what would the others be?

    ....Just how many origins ARE THERE for Donna Troy?

    No thank you, honestly. That just makes it even more convoluted.

    The only thing that I'd go for is the idea of New 52/Rebirth Donna being a fake Golem that was created to look like and believe it was the actual Donna Troy while she was off the playing field - and in fact has an origin like at least one of her classic ones. Maybe that's what they should do.

    Why not have her be the daughter of Rhea?

    It pretty much feels like that now what with all of the different origin stories for Donna.

    technically they aren't the same charter if they are reborn. Each living a new life before dying.

    what if Donna is actually..... Wally's children manifested in a single entity???? they will soon be bringing out Amazons in crisis the sequel to HIC where Wally races all over the world chasing Donna and disintegrates her releasing his trapped children residing inside her upon touching her and transporting her to the dark multiverse which will drive her insane and she will return as a pawn of the Batman who laughs. that's what will happen if DC indulges in further retcons or attempts at fixing a character.

    Donna Troy is committed genocide, why do you people want there to be more than one?

    I don't dislike the MCU films because they're Marvel branded, I dislike them because they're bad films.

    Those costumes are pretty cute. Why can't we have cute things anymore?

    She's the Jean Grey of DC, they should just make reinvention a part of her powers. That would answer the question what can Donna do that Diana can't. Due to her Dark Angel incarnation she's out of sync with all the time Crises of the universe yet her presence is necessary. So she appears in every period with an altered origin but a connection to Wonder Woman because she was once her mystical twin.

    Yes. I have often thought this myself.

    I'm not fond of having characters be temporal anomalies. But with the way DC reinvents things, it's been done already.

    When I finally settled on the origin for my "Tanya Wilson" character, the idea I came up with was in some ways similar to the origin for Donna where she's a demi-titan. The basic idea being that the Titans felt the need to exert their influence in the mortal world and imbued a person who would otherwise have been Human with power the likes of which is inconceivable and incomprehensible to normal people.

    Now for Tanya, this meant having 25% dna from her human mother, 25% from her father and 50% from Gaia. But for Donna, one could say that in-universe her backstory is fiction and that the Titans literally made her to think she had a past because normal people have one.

    You know, DC's already given me a migraine with one of my favorite character's indecipherable history (Hawkman). I think Ms. Troy's got more than all of the complexity that her background requires.
