We still are boys! I'm open to any and all suggestions to stories that would change my mind on the character.

It's just that she's been very, very underused since her resurrection to the point where I don't see why she was brought back. Also, she's been stabbed/lasered to death in like 50% of the stories that I've read of hers.

meh. it really all comes down to the Wolfman/Perez Titans (and even there you have to ignore the Terry Long stink). and Jiminez did some good stuff with her in his Wonder Woman run. other than that, i'll admit she ain't been written very well over the years. but still...doesn't deserve to be DC's version of Jean, Didio!!!!

I don't recall who was on the title at the time, but when Donna dated Kyle in Green Lantern, they did a decent job of portraying how cool Donna is.

I haven't read all of Wolfman/Perez's run, but I will admit to automatically dismissing her due to the fact that she was dating/married to a pot smoking hippie college professor. I mean, what the hell is up with that?
