Meet Nubia AKA Wonder Woman of Earth-23.

DC Comics

***SPOILER ALERT*** According to Comic Vine, Queen Hippolyta created both of her daughters at the same time, using black clay for Nubia and white clay for Diana/Wonder Woman. The twin sisters were then brought to life by the Greek goddess Aphrodite.

She’s a badass Amazon warrior with one helluva backstory. She may not get the same attention as her twin sis, but she's been around since 1973, and her superpowers include flying and hella crazy strength.

Comic book artist Marcus Williams drew this killer version of a modern-day Nubia for those who didn't already know of her existence in the DC universe. “Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins made an obvious conscious effort to make the Amazons very diverse despite the traditional Greek origin," Marcus told BuzzFeed. "This resonated with me well and inspired me to focus on…the very real possibility of seeing Nubia [in the sequel.]”
