ANYWAY BEING A WOMAN IN COMICS SUCKS.
So this takes place right after Donna got BRYNE'D.
Basically, the 90s: where my pairings go to die. ANYWAY, LOOK AT KYLE'S ADORABLE LITTLE TEAR DROPS ROLLING DOWN HIS CHEEK FOR DONNA AND ROBBIE. So Donna got the call while visiting Kyle's mother with Kyle in California that her family had gone KERSPLAT off a cliff. Donna's life sucks, I know. Anyway, she initially just needs some time away from Kyle, but then the Dark Angel stuff happens. JOHN BRYNE HAPPENS. And her existence gets erased and she gets rebooted by Wally's memories of her and his perception of her.
So then this dude hits on Donna and Jesse when the two girls are at a bar.
AND DONNA IS ALL VERY VERY NOT HAPPY -- she is having issues because of being reimagined to life by Wally. And has been avoiding him like the plague and even stomping off in a fit whenever she sees him at the Titans tower.
Okay the vixen thing was just cute to me because she is such a dork. But! This does throw in very sad and creepy metacommentary about Donna. We see her in this run staring at a picture of her family and crying. In JLA/Titans and in GL 118, she was made very upset by seeing Kyle being so loving to her. Basically, she had bits and pieces of memories, and knew logically who these people were to her, but she had no context to any of it. She only had the memories of the Titans, mostly. She didn't even remember her favourite photographer. To not remember any intimate moments you have had, even with your ex-husband, to not remember moments with your son or your (now ex) boyfriend, to have bits and pieces of your identity taken away and be reimagined by a guy who crushed on you your entire life is kind of a freaky experience to think about. Wally meant absolutely the best with his intentions, he wanted to bring his friend back. But what she went through is kind of freaky metacommentary in my mind of writers just tossing on to women in comics, and Donna in particular!!! These traits and reimagining her to whoever they want her to be, with little to no regards of her continuity. L O L I AM SURE IT WAS ALL UNINTENTIONAL but it is still hilarious nonetheless.
