Wonder Girl and Bucky



I featured these two together as a back-up tale in STF #1149, which was part of the ongoing Wonder Woman / Captain America saga on this blog, but I felt they deserved a cover all their own.  I used to be amused at how each male member of the original Teen Titans seemed to have a crush on Donna Troy, and I imagine that Bucky Barnes would have been similarly smitten.

Bucky would give his left arm for a date with Donna.

I have seen the brunette and the "Amazons" before but cannot remember where.

I see black hair, but not brunette.

With these two, I was actually half expecting some kind of expansion on the WW/Cap saga. This sort of works as that, but it's a pretty good story in its own right.

@Mike: Good one!

For Halloween season, maybe Davy Jones, the demonic character of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean, and Davy Jones of The Monkees could be paired.

Was it just a date, or has Donna just rescued him from being tied to that rocket?

I swear, in that black dress, she looks just like (the late, great) Betty Page!

Cary Comic said...

P.S.---how about David Bowie as the Goblin King, too? He was born David Jones!

Love this one‼️

Halloween talk time? The Davy Jones idea might work. It's too bad the Danvers Twins have already dressed up as each other; that might work too. Maybe the Strange Brothers (Adam and Stephen) could go up against Cthulhu. (Or against the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.)

@Carycomic: Wonder Girl is gliding just above Bucky. The Betty Page look-alike is supposed to be Golden Age Hippolyta (her dear old granny).

Cary Comic said...

@Anonymous: almost hate to say this. But, Donna Troy was Hippolyta's adopted daughter. Not Diana's! Ergo; she is NOT Wonder Girl's grandmother (foster or otherwise).

Mike Shirley for the Win!

On a lighter note: how about Batfink meets Howard the Duck?

Or that might be 'Wonder Girl' as in the original "Diana when she was still a teenager" sense...

Cary Comic said...

I don't think so. Not if Captain America's future wife was an adult at the same time during WWII. And Ross has depicted them, as such, on many previous cover sims!

So, either Bucky has time-traveled back to Paradise Island during the"Roaring Twenties." Or he's in the future!

Jay Johnson said...

Unless Ross has played with the timelines on Earth-STF (always a possibility), this has to be the third (1950's commie-hunting) Bucky to be able to have a date with a Donna Troy that wore this costume. She wasn't taken to Paradise Island until at least a couple years after WWII (she was 13-15 when the Teen Titans formed, and she ages "normally" [ie comic book time]).

Wouldn't it be something if Donna Troy (of Earth-STF) turned out to be the long-lost niece of Thomas "Fly-Man" Troy.
