YMMV / Wonder Girl

  • Arc Fatigue: Titans Hunt was a complex and long story. It began with their members being kidnapped and Deathstroke hired to rescue them. Then we get a new villain society, a cheap Wolverine expy, a flying sheet, an unneeded trip to Russia, Cyborg turned into a complete robot, a new team of Titans from the future trying to kill Donna Troy, and so on, and so onů
  • Ho Yay: Between Cassandra Sandsmark and Kara Zor-El during the mid 00's. In Supergirl (2005) issue #19, Kara flies to meet Cassie, glomps her and appears to kiss her.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Cassie to some Donna fans.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Donna Troy and Terry Long. You'll hardly find someone who likes the pairing. They had non-existent chemistry, and it doesn't help that Terry was a sleazy Wolfman look-alike. Or he was ten years older than her. Or he was her college professor. Or Terry's ex-wife predicted he'd divorce Donna because he feels emasculated by her and gets bored easily (which is exactly what eventually happened). Or he took their son away from Donna because she was a "bad" influence...
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks / It's the Same, Now It Sucks!: Donna Troy in DC Rebirth, namely that her New 52 past hasn't been retconned, and she was still an evil clay version of Wonder Woman who hates men. A lot of people were completely happy with the idea of Abnett starting fresh with the character and giving her her Silver Age origin back like it seemed he did at first, given that her New 52 incarnation was not liked. Instead, her entire life is based on false memories given to her by the Amazons, which comes off as more than a little insulting given that Wonder Woman and the Amazons highly value truth! You can tell by the bit where Wonder Woman has a friggin' lasso that channels the concept! Not only that, but there's just the matter of how it works, given that the New 52 Amazons, including those that created Donna, were revealed to be an illusion in Wonder Woman (Rebirth)! And of course there are others are who are just sick of Donna's Continuity Snarl and would've preferred that Abnett fixed the New 52 version without retconning her history like he did or just follow through with the Silver Age origin.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: The Long Family come across as petty and mean-spirited in spite of their tragic losses: Terry Long dated and married his student ten years younger than him, divorced her when he became bored with their married life and gained custody over their son because she was "too dangerous of an influence". His ex-wife Jennifer was nasty to Donna out of contempt and jealousy. And the whole family blamed Donna when Terry and his children were killed in an accident completely unrelated to Donna.
