Have you ever heard of Nubia, Wonder Woman’s twin sister? Not a nemesis, not inferior (possibly even more powerful than Won herself), but her equal, her twin and molded from melanin, strong, powerful and an unapologetically black queen!
And she was brought to this world by DC Comics in 1973! Twitter is BEGGING for her to be thrown into live action and to kick it with Wonder Woman on the big screen (or in her own adventure).
So who is Nubia? Well Mic.com profiled her like this….
According to the DC lore, she was created in 1973 out of the same clay used to make Diana, only her clay was black. She was formed by the goddess Aphrodite, and from there her backstory gets a bit wild. She is stolen at birth by Mars, the god of war, and was trained by him to become a master at hand-to-hand combat. In fact, when she was introduced in Wonder Woman Vol. 1 #204, she beat Diana in battle, and only stopped when she met her sister at sword point.
In the latest edition of the DC multiverse (which, as it sounds, refers to a version of the comics in which multiple universes exist at once), Nubia rules as the Wonder Woman of Earth-23. But her résumé is a bit more extensive. Aside from having superhuman everything, she once was the sole guardian of the River Styx, aka actual hell, and also ruled Floating Island, a community of all men. But no biggie because apparently Nubia is suggested to be in a position akin to Queen Hippolyta, the queen of the Amazons and Wonder Woman. The non-comic book translation? Nubia is literally an otherworldly black queen.
Due to popular demand…voila. Wonder Women (Nubia & Diana) Posters are available for the sketchbook version, as well as Nubia by herself so check it out for those that inquired about it. Also Shirts.

Serena Williams has been pushed by Twitter to play her but who do you think would fit the bill as this black queen on the screen?
