Wonder Woman 1984

Question: Why is Asteria living among regular people? She couldn't return home?


Answer: This was not explained in WW84, so any answer would be speculation. It is rumored that Lynda Carter, who played Asteria, may appear in Wonder Woman 3, which will hopefully explain her backstory. She is probably similar to Diana, who also chose to remain among regular people, secretly using her powers to protect them.

Question: Why does Wonder Woman need the armor?


Answer: When Barbara Minerva wished to be just like Diana, she was granted the same strength and powers as Wonder Woman. Barbara additionally became less humane and more dangerous, particularly after she morphed into "Cheetah." Diana needed the armor to outmatch and defeat Barbara. She was also expecting to fight a multitude of soldiers to get to Max. The armor was originally Asteria's, who needed the extra protection when she battled an army to save the other Amazons.

Plot hole: Wonder Woman says they can't fly commercially because Steve Trevor doesn't have a passport. Except the movie established that only Wonder Woman sees him as Steve Trevor. To the rest of the world he's still the man whose body Steve has inhabited, so there's no reason he can't use his passport.

Suggested correction: In 1989, the earliest date I could find records for, only 3% of US citizens had passports. The overwhelming likelihood is that the real man doesn't have a passport, and given they've spent time in his apartment too, looking for clothes in a montage we didn't see every second of, they clearly also looked around for other relevant information/documents.

Suggested correction: There's no reason to assume the man he is inhabiting has a passport.

Except common sense? The point is she says Steve doesn't have a passport, not thinking about the original body owner having one. Or getting one really quickly.


The percentage of American citizens with passports is quite low. It's far more likely that he would not have a passport than that he would.
