NEW YORK — One of the world’s most recognizable comic book characters has revealed that she is bisexual.
CNN reported that Selina Kyle, whose alter ego is Catwoman, comes out in the latest Catwoman #39 that DC Comics publishes. CNN also notes that Genevieve Valentine, a comic book writer, wrote on her blog that Kyle kissed Eiko Hasigawa, who has become Catwoman.
“Certainly it’s no surprise to Selina that she has an attraction to a woman,” wrote Valentine. “Is this particular kiss a surprise? It’s definitely surprising; this is the very last thing you’re supposed to be getting into on the brink of war, and they both know it. But this isn’t the first intense moment between them.”
GLAAD in 2004 honored Catwoman for openly gay character Holly Robinson.
