The Justice League Get New Neighbours Courtesy Of Themyscira

Today sees the publication of DC Comics' Nubia Coronation Special, in which Nubia is crowned Queen of the Amazons, of Themyscira Island. 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 #204 in 1972. After DC Comics rebooted its continuity in the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Wonder Woman and her supporting characters were re-imagined. Though originally absent, Nu'Bia would be reintroduced in 1999 by Doselle Young and Brian Denham. After DC Rebirth Nubia was featured in Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman as a future Wonder Woman. With Infinite Frontier, and the believed death of Wonder Woman, a more classic version of Nubia once more existed and becomes Queen of Amazon. When Diana returned to the living, she officially blesses Nubia to share her title as Wonder Woman, in addition to her new role as Queen. But now she's getting the official crowning – or tiara-ing. They do have a Tiarmory on Themyscira after all. But also, new neighbours.

As we have seen in previews for Dark Crisis, and Justice League #75, Diana is dead (again) along with the rest of the League. Having a Themysciran embassy next door to the Halls Of Justice could make it convenient if Nubia wants to go up against Yara Flor over anything…
