  • Giganta's outfit as a villain is based on her Golden Age Comics counterpart.

Personality

Doris Zeul is very mean, hot-tempered, and rude. She has a mindset very similar to the stereotypical jock. She has a complete disinterest in books, learning, or academics, often skipping class. She is also a big bully who always picks on those weaker than her, especially Karen, her favorite victim. She also is disrespectful to her parents and other adults as well. When not doing that, she is often seen working out and trying to increase her own muscle size. As Giganta, her villainous plans never go far past mindless destruction. On multiple occasions, she has shown to be concerned with her public perception as a super villain, sometimes even wanting to be seen as a monster.

Despite these strengths, her biggest weakness is her own stupidity. She is not very smart and typically attacks without thinking. This also applies to her own wit and humor. While most of her friend and even enemies can be quick to quip, she often struggles to keep up with conversations. She has trouble understanding the simplest of jokes, but often laughs anyway, even if she doesn't get them. Most jokes she says, if any, are usually nothing more than sports terms like "home run" or "strike", even if they don't mean anything within the context.

When under the effect of the Lasso of Truth, she admits that much of her attitude is her "overcompensating for deep insecurity rooted in a quest for perfectionism and an overpowering fear of not being good enough". She seems to want to continue, but the lasso comes off before she can.

Like Kara, Doris is the powerhouse of Selina's team.

Appearance

As Doris, she has a very bulky figure, with noticeably big legs and arms compared to other characters. Her large red hair is tied up into a big ponytail. She wears a yellow track suit with pockets on the chest and thighs, as well as white sneakers.

As Giganta, her size increases dramatically, standing about 3 times her normal height and dwarfing many of the other characters. Her red hair is no longer tied up and hangs halfway down her back. When every she transforms or flexes hard, orange veins can be seen across her skin. She wears a two-piece yellow loincloth (akin to a cavewoman) with brown bracelets on each wrist and ankle. She is also now barefoot.
