Welcome to the second week of the November selection of #titans-together. This goes from Sunday, November 15 to Saturday November 21.
The winner of the first poll was the original Wonder Girl - Donna Troy! She is my all-time favorite character, so what a beautiful way to start the club’s reading for me. Now there are numerous stories or issues that could have been read for her or even any future club selections, so know that these selections are not considered “the best” or “the worst” of these characters and by far they do not represent an exhaustive list for the character. In fact, some of these characters may eventually be brought back into the mix in the future for a second outing. Some of them have that many important stories.
Welcome to the comic book reading club for all things TITANS! We will be exploring a member of the Titans team each month. This can be any team that has existed as a Titans team. Team Titans included! Each month, at the end of the month, members will vote between 5 Titans members to be highlighted the next month. Then stories will be selected to read that focused on that character. This member will be explored for the entire month through the comic library. So look for new weekly posts on Sunday for the club here on the forums.

Last week, we saw what Marv Wolfman originally created for Donna’s origin. Due to the Crisis though, Donna’s origin allegedly had to be revised. This was because the plan for Wonder Woman made it necessary. The character was being changed to have only just arrived to man’s land, which meant she could not have saved Donna from a burning build. This changed Donna’s origin drastically. We will be reading the issues that show that revised history this week. These are issues 50-54 of “The New Titans” (1984).
- How do you feel this week’s reading compares to the last issue we read for last week’s reading, given they were both origin stories for the same character? Which do you think is a better origin story?
- What was your favorite moment from these issues?
- What didn’t you like from these issues?
- What other thoughts do you have of these issues?
JOIN IN NEXT WEEK FOR MORE DONNA TROY READING GOODNESS!!!
