"You know, when Diana took me in, she showed me how to fill the hole that fire left in my life with love and with family. That’s just what the Amazons do. They have a tradition of empowerment and self-discovery. Bruce filled that hole in your life the only way he knew how – with rage and violence. Wonder Woman was born to protect the innocent and Batman was created to punish the guilty. But we’re not them, either one of us."
-- Donna Troy to Dick Grayson, Titans: "Donna Troy"
