Wonder Woman is queer, her writer has confirmed: “I don’t know how much clearer I can make it”.
Greg Rucka, who worked on Wonder Woman for DC Comics throughout the 2000s, returned to DC Comics this year for the new Rebirth series commemorating her 75th year in print.
He told the comic news site Comicosity the character had “obviously” been in love and relationships with other women, as has long been speculated by fans.
Wonder Woman is known as the warrior princess Diana in her homeland of Themyscira, an island populated only by Amazonian women.
The confirmation was met with celebration on social media.
That said, Rucka then goes on, practically choking in his need to say this doesn’t mean there should be any sort of queer storylines, no. I suppose acknowledgement is a good thing, but representation sure would be nice. Really nice.
