Troia and Catherine Cobert delivered speeches in front of the press, at the ruins of the Hall of Justice. Troia expressed her dismay regarding the stalling of the plans to renovate the site. She blamed this on Lex Luthor's "process", and expressed concern for the effect that Luthor's policies might ultimately have when applied to the Justice League's life and death missions.[8]

The Bwundan Independence Front attacked U.N. ambassadors Garth and Troia during a gathering at one of the hotels owned by Luthor. Troia was assaulted in her hotel room while conversing with Wonder Woman on her laptop, though Miss Martian, Halo and Terra were able to intervene and prevent her assassination. In the aftermath of this altercation, Troia left her room to confront the Flash and the Outsiders, who had just saved Garth's life. Troia questioned Flash regarding his involvement in the rescue, citing the fact that members of the Justice League were not allowed to enter Bwunda. Luthor then informed Troia that he had summoned the Justice League for help. He proceeded to use the ease with which Flash had been able to step in to then strengthen his argument that the Outsiders' involvement was not necessary.[3]

Appearances

Background information

  • Troia is the second Wonder Girl, a character with a very confusing and changing background. Her exact backstory has varied in the comics, ranging from an orphan adopted by Amazons to a magical duplicate of Diana. She is a founding member of the Teen Titans. Originally just known as Wonder Girl, she was later given the civilian identity Donna Troy. Once she learned more of her origin, she used the name Troia, which is her only confirmed identity in the show.
  • Very early in development, Donna was considered as a leading candidate for the Team in season one, but was quickly removed from consideration for legal reasons. She was later made available, but too late for use in the first season.[22]
    • She was planned to appear at Raquel Ervin's bridal shower in "Satisfaction" and the gathering of heroes in "Endgame", but there was not sufficient time to design the character.[22]
  • This is Donna Troy's 7th animated appearance. She first appeared in the Teen Titans shorts part of the Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, the Teen Titans TV series, the animated movie Justice League: The New Frontier, the Super Best Friends Forever shorts, the DC Super Friends web series and in the animated movie Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.
