With Roy now a full time member, it was not long until his attraction to Donna, became an issue. Both Donna and Roy had hit it off straight away, however that caused initial problems to both Wally & Dick. Garth had found his own undersea love Tula.
Donna had a big Crush on Roy mainly due to his bad boy nature. She still cared for Dick, and Wally and Garth... , BUT her heart was aimed at only one person...... Her Own Cupid with a Bow....... Speedy.
|DONNA HAD A WONDER CRUSH ON HER BEAU WITH THE BOW ROY !|
Like a lot of teenagers, the boys in the team would fight and disagree about everything from the Leadership of the Group, to Politics and even Girls..... with one Girl in Question WONDER GIRL.
However, as time went on Donna and Roy became an item, and the others accepted their positions as caring "Brothers" of their beloved WONDER GIRL. It must be noted that all the members of the Teen Titans were either Orphans or without any real family. So the Titans became their own family Unit. A relationship that their mentors sometimes found hard to understand.
In life it is said that Girls mature faster than Boys, this in turn made Donna start to both evaluate herself and look for answers to who she really was. Donna found answers to her past ( but it was not until many years later she REALLY found out WHO and WHAT she really was ).
But for now she was happy to learn how she ended up adopted by the Amazons. Still proud of her connection to her "Sister" Diana aka WONDER WOMAN, she wanted to be more than just Wonder Woman's kid Sister, she wanted to be her own young woman. Donna decided to reinvent her look. Therefore she changed her costume to the familiar Red Leotard look she would wear for many years to come. No more stars and sandles..... Now it was stars and a sexy new look.
|THE NEW AND IMPROVED WONDER GIRL|
However, The First New and Improved Wonder Girl's costume was more in keeping with the Age. Gone were the bear legs, in came long boots , jewellery and her Lasso converted to double up as a natty belt.
This was the late 1960's and Donna dressed as any young woman would want to at this time. By the 1980's The Jewellery was gone, and the Stars on the leotard had changed, but she was still the same old Wonder Girl.
On the whole the "Boys" stayed dressed the same, with a few up dates to masks. But if it aint broke.....
|THE NEW LOOK OLD TEEN TITANS|
Shortly after Donna made her change of look, the Teen Titans stories and missions began to included new members.
