History


Initially living at Titans Lair headquarters when she wasn’t with her sisters on Paradise Island, Wonder Girl found herself truly without a home when the Amazons left earth for a time. The teen Amazon eventually searched for an apartment of her own in the civilian guise of Donna Troy. She answered an ad for a Greenwich Village apartment placed by an ebullient young woman named Sharon Tracy. Upon meeting, the two teenagers sparked an instant friendship as Donna found a new home.

Donna initially concealed her Wonder Girl identity from Sharon in an attempt to carve out a “normal” life, and Sharon remained oblivious to Donna’s dual life as a Teen Titan. Although she never used a mask or Amazon magic to disguise her features while fighting crime, few connected Donna Troy to Wonder Girl.

After the dissolution of the second group of Teen Titans, both Sharon and Donna attended college at NYU. Sharon, like Donna, was an art major. While Donna studied photography, Sharon wanted to be a painter. She eventually learned of Donna’s identity as Wonder Girl and the teen Amazon later abandoned any pretense of a secret identity.

Sharon’s passion for painting (and available men) eventually led her outside of New York City, but she and Donna remained close friends. At Donna’s wedding to Terry Long, Sharon returned to New York City to serve as one of Donna’s bridesmaids. Extremely vivacious and outrageously flirtatious, Sharon serves as a counterpoint to a more reserved Donna.
