00:29

00:51
comic book videos like this ring it only
00:53
takes two clicks to become one of
00:54
Earth's Mightiest subscribers click
00:57
quick Nubia first appeared in Wonder
01:01
Woman number 204 in 1973 and was created
01:05
by Robert can occur and Don heck Nubia
01:09
was originally made from clay just like
01:13
Wonder Woman but this time the clay was
01:17
black not white she was even brought to
01:20
life by Aphrodite just the same as Diana
01:24
but Nubia was kidnapped by Aries so
01:27
Nubia did not get the same powers that
01:30
Wonder Woman had at least not exactly
01:33
Aries also called Mars back then as well
01:36
because you know Roman mythology and
01:38
they just stole God's because their God
01:41
sucked Ares raised Nubia to be his
01:44
standard bearer and champion all the
01:47
while Nubia was being brainwashed by a
01:50
special ring that kept her past and
01:53
circumstances of her being in Ares
01:55
employ a mystery to herself it would be
01:58
years later until Wonder Woman would
02:00
break the spell clouding new be his mind
02:03
by reflecting the light of the Sun
02:05
towards newbies ring finger using her
02:08
magic brazzers generating enough heat to
02:11
make the ring
02:12
expand and fall off with the spell
02:15
broken this led to her turning on the
02:17
God of War and taking his army of
02:20
warriors and turning them into champions
02:22
of peace it's at this point in her
02:25
publication history that Nubia would
02:27
learn from Queen Hippolyta that she is
02:30
in fact Diana's quota fingers black twin
02:34
sister pre-crisis Nubia wielded a magic
02:39
sword created by the God of War Ares
02:41
which was the only weapon on earth
02:43
capable of counteracting Wonder Woman's
02:46
own magic lasso of truth and like Diana
02:49
she could glide on air currents and
02:52
possessed superhuman levels of strength
02:55
agility stamina reflexes durability and
02:59
speed in 1999 Nubia was revamped by jose
03:04
el young and brian Denham becoming Nubia
03:08
with an apostrophe in the middle as
03:10
opposed to just Nubia and no longer
03:13
being touted as the quota fingers black
03:15
twin sister of Diana made from black
03:18
clay but an entirely separate entity
03:21
simply another Amazon who won the
03:23
tournament of Grace and wonder that
03:26
Diana had won only Nubia would be the
03:30
Amazons first champion she was also
03:33
charged with protecting the entrance to
03:35
the River Styx and Tartarus
03:38
now post-crisis Nubia utilizes an
03:41
enchanted sword and wears an enchanted
03:44
set of armor that allows her to travel
03:46
back and forth to Hades at will as well
03:49
as any other magical or mythical realm
03:52
she chooses to visit this newer version
03:54
of Nubia was also blessed by the Gorgons
03:57
with a gift of cold sight which is the
04:00
ability to turn anyone she looks at into
04:03
stone on top of all that she possesses
04:05
over 3,000 years worth of combat
04:08
experience she's proficient in Themis
04:11
gear and combat arts hand-to-hand combat
04:13
as well as weapons combat
04:16
she's also effectively immortal as all
04:19
famous gear and Amazon's tend to be
04:22
allowing her to look as young
04:23
she was in her early 20s after all these
04:27
years she can however be killed under
04:30
certain circumstances typically being
04:32
beheaded post-crisis Nubia still
04:35
possesses the superhuman strength
04:37
agility stamina reflexes durability and
04:39
speed of her pre-crisis incarnation with
04:43
the added bonus of a healing factor
04:45
post-crisis Nubia could live as much as
04:48
100 tons and was more than capable of
04:51
taking on even Diana without showing any
04:53
signs of being in a fight her speed and
04:55
reflexes are on par with Wonder Woman's
04:58
which means at the very least she's on
05:01
par with Superman considering the fact
05:03
that Batman has even gone as far as to
05:05
say that Wonder Woman's reflexes are
05:07
faster than Superman's and if that's the
05:10
case that means so is newbies her
05:12
agility durability and stamina are also
05:14
on par with Wonder Woman's she also has
05:17
superhuman levels in all five senses
05:19
sight hearing taste touch and smell this
05:23
is a direct result of her Amazonian
05:25
physiology considering that all Amazons
05:28
are gifted with the gifts of five
05:31
Olympian goddesses Artemis Athena
05:33
Demeter Hestia and Aphrodite Nubia also
05:37
like any other theme skier and does not
05:40
require food water or really any type of
05:44
nourishment to maintain her life force
05:47
but this is only so long as she stays on
05:50
thin mascara just like any other Amazon
05:53
and she can also fly albeit with magical
05:56
assistance and if that weren't enough
05:57
she's also a fairly skilled Archer her
06:00
only real weakness to speak of is
06:02
bullets and other piercing projectiles
06:04
same as pretty much all Amazons and even
06:07
men they tend to be more of a minor
06:08
inconvenience than anything else and
06:11
house for some interesting little side
06:12
notes the pre-crisis version of Nubia no
06:15
longer exists
06:16
following the DC Comics event crisis on
06:19
Infinite Earths which resulted in the
06:21
collapse of the multiverse technically
06:23
pre-crisis version of her does tend to
06:26
appear here and there but the original
06:30
version of Nubia no longer exist during
06:33
Wonder Woman earth 1 volume 1 we learned
06:36
that Queen Hippolyta the mother of Diana
06:39
and Nubia were and possibly still are
06:42
lovers
06:43
however that's hardly surprising
06:44
considering that the island of Amazonia
06:47
is 100% made up of women who believe in
06:50
free love
06:51
during the injustice series Nubia sides
06:54
against Wonder Woman she was even
06:56
appointed as the new Wonder Woman famous
06:58
Kira after Diana had thrown in her lot
07:01
with Superman's regime
07:02
unlike Diana Nubia has little to no
07:06
interest in the world beyond the mascara
07:08
it's one of the few ways her and Diana
07:10
are incredibly different you know other
07:14
than the obvious one in Final Crisis we
07:17
first learn of the earth 23 version of
07:20
Nubia who is the Wonder Woman of her
07:22
earth rather than Haley from the mascara
07:24
like the Wonder Woman earth 1 volume 1
07:27
Nubia she comes from an island called
07:29
Amazonia Nellas getting to some media
07:32
though newbie has never actually
07:34
officially appeared on television or in
07:37
any movies in any official capacity
07:38
she's had a lot of close calls getting
07:41
introduced on the little and big screen
07:44
in 1975 producers of ABC's Wonder Woman
07:48
TV series had originally wanted actress
07:51
Teresa Graves who some of you may
07:53
recognize as the titular character from
07:57
get Christy love or that man bolt they
08:00
wanted her to play Diana's black sister
08:03
unfortunately when the show was moved to
08:05
CBS in 1977 the plans for that for
08:09
whatever reason were not carried over so
08:12
she never officially appeared an eerily
08:15
similar character did happen to appear
08:17
in the 1974 TV film Wonder Woman
08:21
starring Kathie Lee Crosby another
08:23
Amazon named on Jayla who was played by
08:26
a Nitra Ford ventures away from Paradise
08:29
Island the same as Wonder Woman does but
08:31
instead of becoming a hero she becomes
08:33
an emesis of Wonder Woman
08:34
now this is not Nubia but originally it
08:38
was supposed to be
08:39
now although she is yet to make any
08:41
other appearances and media outside of
08:42
that comedian and actress Tiffany
08:45
Haddish had recently campaigned to play
08:47
the character Nubia in a Wonder Woman
08:49
sequel or Nubia solo film since this
08:52
news came out and nothing else has come
08:54
of it
08:54
Haddish even seemed to be incredibly
08:57
familiar with the character even listing
08:59
off some obscure facts that I have just
09:01
used in this video
09:02
speaking of comedians Leslie Jones once
09:05
came out on stage while gal gadot hosted
09:08
SNL in a Wonder Woman costume in don't
09:11
theoretically she is only dressed as the
09:15
movie version of Diana Prince
09:17
this is probably the closest we'll get
09:18
to seen anything like Nubia on the small
09:21
screen now as for who I would like to
09:23
play a character like Nubia on the
09:26
bigger small screen we actually have my
09:28
sights set on actress nafisa Williams
09:31
and for those of you who are fans of
09:33
shows like Black Lightning you're
09:35
probably already familiar as she plays a
09:37
disappears
09:38
aka Thunder she's also had roles on
09:41
shows like twin peaks'
09:43
One Life to Live and code black in the
09:46
festival Williams is a very talented
09:48
actress she's already accustomed to
09:49
playing a strong confident cared for so
09:52
I don't think a character like Nubia is
09:54
anywhere outside of her scope or ability
09:56
she's also a very beautiful woman so she
09:58
definitely has the ability to pull off
10:00
the look of Nubia as well and much like
10:03
any other time I do little fan castings
10:06
like these if I don't pick an actor
10:07
actors that you think is better it's
10:10
probably because I have something else
10:11
in mind for them but anyways now as for
10:14
recommended reading there's really not a
10:15
lot to say about her all I could really
10:17
recommend is to check out the first
10:18
three issues that she appeared in which
10:20
was Wonder Woman vol 1 issues number 204
10:23
through 206 and I also recommend earth 1
10:28
volume 1 by Grant Morrison and Yannick
10:31
Paquette newbee is another
10:33
those black characters that because of
10:35
the time when they came out that had
10:36
very problematic origins but at the same
10:38
time I feel like they've been able to
10:40
grow past that and kind of distance
10:42
themselves whether it's by virtue of the
10:44
storytelling or because other writers
10:47
and creative teams came along and
10:48
cleaned it up I still think that you
10:50
know she's a character who still endures
10:52
even today in the current Wonder Woman
10:55
rebirth run she doesn't get a lot to do
10:57
unfortunately but such as life but
11:00
anyways let me know what you think about
11:01
the character Nubia sound off in the
11:05
comments say you made it to the end of
11:07
the video awesome for you if you enjoyed
