How can Donna Troy have served with the Titans in the past if she was only created recently?

By way of mediating I do think It's possible of course that the reason that Wonder Woman's behaviour was so odd is that not all is what it seemed to be. Alternately It may well be that with Greg Rucka redeveloping Wonder Woman's world that Dan Abnett will naturally have to rethink what he was planning and readjust accordingly, after all if the writer of Wonder Woman reveals that the setting and context of Donna Troy's reintroduction into the DC Universe was not Amazon, and potentially not even canon, then Donna is left in a position that has her minus any firm origin once again and taken back to being just as convoluted as she was before 2011 drew a line under her past to render it void.
Of course as you imply the story does raise its own contradictions, regardless of any masterplan. For how does a recently created golem, Donna not even being flesh and blood according to Diana and Batman, regain her old memories via Wally West, and be accepted by her friends as being their childhood friend and companion? Where and when did Diana and the Amazons supposedly plant this false past into Donna? Why does Diana when we first meet her in this Annual declare so forcefully she doesn't know what Troy is, or for that matter appear willing to trust anyone caught in the same setting she finds herself in? How can this be in character for Wonder Woman?
Even the calculating loner that is Batman avoided such a degree of hostility and paranoia... instead good keen sense being his guide to the situation.

But as I say, the only Justice Leaguer who did come out of this tale unwaveringly in-character was dear Barry Allen, which is fitting on Abnett's part as even from the first issue of the Justice League in 2011 Barry was the unequivocal sensible one out of the whole team...
