Quick Wonder Woman (movie) question:

Antiope dies taking a bullet for Diana. But doesn't Ares say at some point that only a god can kill another god? And doesn't Antiope know that Diana is the daughter of Zeus? So, is there a canon/fanon explanation for her sacrifice? Do we think it's because she's never seen a gun before, so she doesn't know what these bullets can do, and she's not taking any chances with Diana's life? Or what?

I need more WW icons.

Ooh. That's an interesting question. I figured that Steve and the Germans' appearance at the island was triggered by Diana realising her powers when she defended herself from Antiope (the more she knows, the closer Ares gets). So maybe Antiope didn't know whether Ares himself was part of the attack on Themyscira? Or maybe Diana's powers weren't fully there yet?

(Hope your recovery goes well!)

I figured she was just reacting, not thinking - Diana was in danger and must be protected, regardless.

This was my interpretation (though I hadn't really thought about it till you asked the question!).

Antiope may not have known that for certain - she and Hippolyta and Ares all had different versions of Diana's story. Also Diana here is a demigod, not a god like Ares, so we know she can kill Ares, but we don't know that a human can't kill her.
