Terry Long was a professor of history. He dated and later married his student Donna Troy, with whom he had one child Robert. At that point, he was already a divorced father of Jennifer Long.

Terry had a long problem with finishing what he started, which eventually cost him his job, as he failed to turn in any academic papers during his tenure. He got a new job in a bookstore, but he did not like that. He eventually got another tenure, and published several books.

Though their relationship seemed golden at the start, they eventually grew apart and divorced. Several years later, Terry, Robert and Jennifer were killed in a car crash in New Hampshire.



  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
  • Was 29 during his relation to Donna Troy, who was 10 years younger.[1]
  • He is said to work at either Manhattan University[1] or City Community College,[2] neither of which exist in real life New York City. Later appearances refer to it as "a certain New York college" only.
