Nubia: The Black Wonder Woman

BLACK WONDER WOMAN APPEARED 20 YEARS BEFORE BLACK CAPTAIN AMERICA


A Black Captain America is creating a lot of buzz these days.  It has lead many in the media to say that DC is lagging is diversity.

I say "What took Marvel so long?'

DC introduced a black Wonder Woman in 1973.  In Wonder Woman #204.  Her name was Nubia, and she was featured in 20 issues of the book.

Remember 1973 was not long after the Civil Rights Moment.  It was not as PC as it is now to introduce people of color into comics.  No I am not saying Marvel didn't introduce people of color. I am just saying, that people posting articles about DC is not Diverse enough just don't know the Company's history or the current books for that matter.

The following are two examples (which I talked about in two previous post) of what I am seeing lately:

"DC SHOULD MAKE WONDER WOMAN A MAN" - They did before and he fought her on one time, and was part of an alternative universe in another.  And Why would you want a diverse universe and add another white male any way?

"CAPTAIN AMERICA IS BLACK" - Didn't they do that before ( January 2003)?  And even when they did  that, Wonder Woman still was black 30 years before that.

I applaud Marvel for what they are doing, but I think the Media needs to do more research when they call either company on not being diverse.

GO FORTH AND DO WELL.
