Wonder Woman has a sister and she is our new queen

Wonder Woman has just got a twin sister, Nubia, and she’s our new favourite superhero.

Nubia is a black warrior queen that has been announced as Diana’s true equal.

DC lore explains that she was created in 1973 out of the same clay that the Wonder Woman we all know was forged.

However, the new hero has led a very different life to her twin sister.

After being formed by Aphrodite, she was stolen at birth by the god of war, Mars, and trained in combat.

In more recent comics, Nubia proved herself as she guarded the River Styx and ruled Floating Island – a community of all men.

Despite the different backgrounds, both Diana and Nubia clearly share a sisterly bond as the pair fought (before knowing they were related) but Nubia stopped when she came to realise their bond.

The revelation, which has been illustrated by professional Marcus Williams, has everybody calling for a film about Nubia.

Some people on Twitter suggested that the film should be directed by Ava DuVernay with Serena Williams playing the role.

Last year Wonder Woman writer Greg Rucka confirmed that the warrior princess was “obviously queer”.

“Now, are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women? The answer is obviously yes,” Rucka explained.

Fans were overjoyed at the news but were disappointed when DC made the decision to not explore her sexuality in a new film.

Gal Gadot landed the role of Diana in the blockbuster and said that she fancied Halle Berry as the character’s love interest.

The act also opened up about how she listened to Beyoncé to give her the confidence to nail the audition for the part.
