Background Information

On the parallel earth of Earth-One and Earth-1A, shortly before Princess Diana came to America, Daniel was transferred to South America. Diana learns of this after meeting army nurse, Diana Prince after dropping Steve Trevor off at the hospital. The nurse is sad, telling the princess she doesn’t have the money to join him. As the young woman talks, Wonder Woman is struck with how much they resemble each other. She even has her same name! Aphrodite must have arranged this, so the princess could have an American identity. She tells Diana that she is also a trained nurse and that if she sells her credentials to her, she can be with the man she loves and young Diana can go to South America to be with her fiancé (Wonder Woman had recently made some money doing her "bullets-and-bracelets" bit on stage).[3] The young woman agrees and heads to South America to be with the man she loves.

On the parallel earth of Earth-1A, Marvin told Wendy that his father had a garage door opener in his car that had a button he pushes to open the garage door.[4]
