DC SPECIAL: THE RETURN OF DONNA TROY

Back during Graduation Day, when Donna Troy and Lilith were killed off, the predominant emotional response was annoyance and not sadness. Not only because it was a weak story, but also because Judd Winick didn't even bother to really "kill" Donna -- she was reborn before the book even ended. Getting her back was a "when", not an "if", and it seemed like a pointless exercise even within the context of the hamster wheel of superhero rebirths. It certainly didn't help that Outsiders, the book that replaced Titans, turned out to be so unimpressive.

To this genealogy we now add DC Special: the Return of Donna Troy and ask the same question for the third time: She died for this?
