    Default Donna's Silver Lasso

    Ok, now that we have it officially in canon. Where is it now. Why have we not seen its used in any of the other books that Donna appears in, and what can it do?

    Will we see it again Gail?

    I love it. The color coordination is shamelessly stylish for stylishness' sake. Silver lasso. Moon goddess. Awesome.

    I can forgive inconsistencies as long as they're pretty. What kind of fan does that make me?

    Not only "where is it now?" but "where did it come from?"

    We don't know why all the sudden Donna had a silver lasso, if it can do anything special or why she never used it during the big battle.

    No explanations.

    Locked away in a closet? My take is that her *old* Wondergirl lasso was somehow imbued with her moon goddess titan energy. She's no longer a moon goddess but the blue tinge is a faint remnant of that, reflecting her personality.

    That's my retcon and I'm sticking to it until someone comes up with something better!

    How nice. But is that what happened? No one has said!

    During that godawful Countdown series, Donna fought another version of herself from out in the Multiverse while traveling with Jason and the others. She ended up knocking the girl out and stealing her costume and gear, and kept the lasso after they left the planet.

    The lasso she stole from the other girl wasn't silver, but I think it might be a halfway decent explanation as to where it came from.

    Didn't she already have Diana's with her at that point before she left?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong. How many lariats does Donna have?

    The mental image of them stored in mothballed shoeboxes makes me giggle, btw.

    It's in canon. And the story is coming.

    But NOT in Wonder Woman! :)

    Sorry, but what's in canon? The scene I mentioned where Donna jacks the other girl's lasso?

    Default Silver Lasso

    Hey, so I was wondering if the silver lasso is ever going to appear again? I trust Gail, she's a good writer, and she said it was here to stay, but the people at DC are not known for consistency when it comes to Donna Troy!

    I guess we'll find out soon with the new costume!

    Default Wait...what..?

    Donna's getting ANOTHER new costume? Good grief.

    I just hope she gets a proper hero name. I mean, when you hear, "Superman! Firestorm! Cyborg! Donna Troy! Darkseid's parademons are flying in over the west side of New York..." It just doesnt have that same panache.

    Oh, and count me in for keeping the silver lasso too. I thought it was a nice touch years ago and has been all but forgotten.

    Guys, I am going to try to merge the two threads together. I hope it works. :)
