Catwoman Confirmed As Bisexual In Next Issue Of Comic

Selina Kyle aka Catwoman kisses another woman in the newest issue of "Catwoman," with the writer revealing that she intended to establish the character as a "canon bisexual."

In a blog post, writer Genevieve Valentine wrote, "She's flirted around it -- often quite literally -- for years now; for me, this wasn't a revelation so much as a confirmation."

Valentine added, "please be assured that Selina's longstanding connection to Batman has not been forgotten; that is not how bisexuality (or humanity) works."

This kiss takes place in issue 39 of the DC Comics series, out this week.
