Wonder Woman is bisexual and fans could not be happier

As Woman Woman’s writers revealed the superhero is bisexual, fans have found it hard to contain their excitement.

Earlier this week, the lead writer of the newest batch of Wonder Woman comics revealed what many fans have long suspected.

When quizzed about Diana’s life with her fellow Amazons – who are all female and live on the fictional island of Themyscira – Greg Rucka said that the superhero had “obviously” been in same-sex relationships.

“When you start to think about giving the concept of Themyscira its due, the answer is, ‘How can they not all be in same sex relationships?’ Right?” he told Comicosity.

“It makes no logical sense otherwise,” he added.

Fans of the warrior princess were quick to express their excitement following the revelation – although some were not so surprised.

Check out some the best reactions below.

Wonder Woman is the latest superhero to be written as LGBT.

In February, it was announced that Batwoman would stay true to her sexuality in an upcoming DC film.

The superhero made a splash back in 2006, when her alter-ego Kate Kane came out as a lesbian in a watershed moment for comic books.

And Diana’s own mother Queen Hippolyta has often been paired with her general Philippus.

It was also recently announced that long-term gay couple Midnighter and Apollo would be getting their own comic book series.

The pair have had a somewhat rocky relationship – with Midnighter even joining Grindr last year– but it seems they are back together to take on the world’s criminals.
