365 DC Comics Paper Cut-Out SuperHeroes The Amazonian heroine known as Nubia is Wonder Woman’s sister, created from the same mystical clay used to create Diana; with both being brought to life via the breath of the goddess Aphrodite. Nubia was stolen as an infant by the evil war-god Ares who raised her as though she were his own daughter. Nubia grew into a fierce warrior kept under the war god’s thrall by way of a special ring that clouded her mind. She clashed with Wonder Woman on a number of occasions, each unaware that they were one another’s sister. In their final confrontation, Wonder Woman was able to remove the ring from Nubia’s finger thus releasing her from Ares’ influence. Freed from Ares, Nubia chose to defy war god and led her forces in the ways of peace. And soon thereafter Queen Hippolyte revealed that Nubia and Diana were indeed sisters. In the post ReBirth era, Nubia’s origins have been changed and she has been reimagined as an Amazonian warrior chosen by the gods to guard the entryway to the fabled River Styx. Nubia first appeared in the pages of Wonder Woman (1973).
