I will be the first to admit that I don’t know a whole lot about the DC and Marvel universes. But I was floored….FLOORED when I saw this:Did you all know this was a thing and didn’t tell me? WUT? Wonder Woman has A BLACK TWIN SISTER named Wonder Woman Nubia who is a superhero on Earth 23! How do I get to this Earth 23? Will Delta take me there after a stopover in Wakanda? I have a strong feeling that this Earth 23 is where I want to be. I’ll bet on Earth 23 Hilary Clinton won the presidency after Barack Obama finished his two terms. I’ll bet they even have universal healthcare there, which you’ll need after Wonder Woman Nubia puts that hurt on ya.
Her backstory is that she was created by Aphrodite at the same time as Diana with the only difference being that the goddess used black clay to form her (You are fearfully and wonderfully made!). You can read more about her at Mic Network. This news gave me all the feels and I am beating my head against the wall trying to understand why I am only hearing about her in 2018 when she was created in 1973. 1973! I could have had her when I was growing up! I would have done anything for thick-legged, dark-skinned, brown-eyed, curly-haired WONDER WOMAN. Do I spy locs on her head? I think I just fainted.
On the Mic Network page, keep refreshing until you see the video ad showing Anita Hill testifying before Congress during her hearings in 1991. Look at her and look at Wonder Woman Nubia and tell me you don’t see the resemblance.
