A highlight of Wonder Woman 1984 It’s the story behind Diana’s golden armor.In the original comics, it originated from Kingdom Come. This new movie reveals that it is the property of the ancient Amazon Asteria. According to legend, it was she who stayed in the human world, so the Amazon race could escape Themyscira. Asteria never heard it again. Diana told Steve Trevor that she searched for her on the earth and only found armor.
But when Wonder Woman 1984, We found that Asteria lives well and lives in the modern world. In fact, only Lynda Carter (Lynda Carter) from the original TV series played her. But is Asteria a real character on the DC Comics page? Or did Patty Jenkins just let her make up? Well… yes, no.
Spare Earth Amazon
There is a character named Asteria in the comics, but this is very deep, deep cut.She appeared in the 1998 intermittent comic The best of Elseworld: Superwoman and Batgirl. This story shows another planet, the main champions are Super Girls and Batgirls, not men. The most outstanding super team in the world is the American Judicial Society. The JSA of Earth 1098 showed some familiar names, but there was a powerful lady on the roster who had never seen it before. Her name is Asteria.
Although we know very little about her in the story, it seems that she is another Amazon warrior. She certainly looks important. However, with the exception of the one on Earth-1098, Asteria never appeared in another comic book.The picture above is her only photo Best in other world Comics
Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns may have simply picked the name off.This is similar to Superman: Cinematic General Zod is named after another phantom zone villain in the comics, but his appearance and behavior are not like him. Zod is just a cool name, and the producer shines on it.But it seems that Asteria can be further improved in the potential one-third Wonder Woman the film.
There is evidence that DC Comics plans to introduce different Asterias in comic pages.Just two years ago, “Wonder Woman” (Wonder Woman) Justice League Event comics called Submerged earth. Diana (Diana) tells Aquaman (Aquaman) about an ancient Amazon, the warrior named Asteria, his deeds legend. “The old sister who fought against the gods.” Diana even named her trusted eagle companion after Asteria. We can’t see the character, but the fact that they chose the name is very obvious. This shows that they have a plan.
The legendary Lynda Carter gave Asteria a new look, which really makes her so cool. They could have called her character Sally Jenkins (Sally Jenkins), but we agree! Although we still hope that we can see Lynda once again become another alternative to the original “Supergirl”. flash In the movie, we also hope to see her continue to play Asteria. Seeing her and Diana team up against a villain like Circe, it will be the bee’s knee. Hope that Patty Jenkins and Warner Brothers can achieve this goal.
