Nubia (also sometimes Nu'Bia) is a fictional character appearing in DC Comics publications and related media, commonly as an ally and analogue of the super hero Wonder Woman. Originally Wonder Woman's long-lost twin sister, Nubia has since variously been presented as: a non-sibling Amazon contemporary of Wonder Woman, as a parallel-universe version of the hero, and as an inheritor of the Wonder Woman mantle in a future timeline. Created by Robert Kanigher and Don Heck, Nubia debuted in Wonder Woman (vol. 1) #204, (January 1973). After DC Comics rebooted its continuity in 1985 (a publication event known as the Crisis on Infinite Earths), Wonder Woman and her supporting characters were re-imagined. Though originally absent from this revised mythos, the character (rechristened Nu'Bia) would be reintroduced to the Wonder Woman canon in 1999 by Doselle Young and Brian Denham in Wonder Woman Annual (vol. 2) #8.

Historically, Nubia is DC Comics' first Black woman superhero character, though this distinction is also sometimes given to the Teen Titan Bumblebee, a more traditional comic book "costumed crimefighter," who debuted three years after Nubia's first appearance.

In Wonder Woman (vol. 1) #204, (January 1973), Diana (Wonder Woman) has her memories restored by the Amazons and is soon confronted by an armored female warrior who challenges her to single combat. The two initially wrestle, then face each other with swords. Diana and the intruder seem evenly matched until the intruder knocks the sword from Diana's hands, but then hesitates to kill her. The dark-skinned stranger introduces herself as Nubia, the one true Wonder Woman, and tells Diana that they will meet again someday to decide which of them has the right to the title. Diana's mother, Queen Hippolyta, secretly believes she recognizes Nubia, who returns to her own Floating Island.

A short Nubia story in Wonder Woman #205 picks up with her departure from Paradise Island, including a short conversation and an embrace from Hippolyta. Back on her mist-concealed Floating Island, Nubia rules a community of all men. Upon her return, two men claim the right to fight for her, citing the "law of the Floating Island" or "Mars' law of conquest." Declaring "No man will ever own Nubia!" she fights one of the men herself, defeating him but letting him live. She says, "A woman doesn't destroy life, she cherishes it!".
