Welcome to the first week of the November selection of #titans-together. This goes from Sunday, November 8 to Saturday November 14.
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.

Donna Troy has a very weird origin and starting publication history. She started as Diana technically as a young girl, but the history is that an individual mistook her for her own character and well the rest is history. To highlight a story from this origina, we will start the reading with WONDER WOMAN #124. She then appears as her own character finally, which takes place in THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD #60. Eventually the “Teen Titans” get their own title, so we will read after this the first issue of the first series in TEEN TITANS #1. The next reading sees a very popular development of the character, but I don’t want to spoil it for those that may have never read TEEN TITANS #22. The last issue we are reading for the week’s reading is The New Teen Titans #38. This jumps a bit in time from the other reading, but this is an important story to the character, as it tries to synch her origin a bit. Next week’s reading deals with the fallout of a certain crisis…
