Diana speaks to Steve:

Diana: It was just a coffee cup...and I lost it.

Why did Diana compare Themyscira to a coffee cup?

  • It's not clear that she did, unless you can provide a relevant quote or reference. She was after all talking about trying to make the jet aircraft that they were in invisible - not her home. Commented Sep 10, 2021 at 15:07

    Downvotes seem really harsh: This is someone suffering from a misunderstanding. It is quite easy to understand something if you already understand it. I am glad @FuzzyBoots provided such a clear and welcoming answer to a new user. Welcome to SFF.SE Randy Root. J!

  • @Lexible Premise is false. Title should be reworded to not be misleading.

  • @Mithoron You haven't been "mislead," this is someone not making a connection, and misunderstanding something which got spelled out in the accepted answer.

In short, she doesn't. She's describing the process of making something invisible, something that her father did with Themyscira, and she's stating that she's only done that process once, with a coffee cup.

Diana: My father hid Themyscira from the world, and I’ve been trying to learn how he did it.

Steve: Did what?

Diana: Made something invisible.
But in 50 years, I’ve only done it once.

Steve: Well, now’s not a bad time to start trying.
How long does it last?

Diana: I don’t know.
It was just a coffee cup… and I lost it.
