For over 75 years, she’s been Batman’s arch-nemesis and biggest flirt. Just when we thought we knew everything about Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman, she comes out as bisexual! The big news appeared in the 39th issue of the Catwoman comic. 

The comic's writers have been toying around with Catwoman’s sexuality for quite some time now, but in the latest issue of the series, Catwoman shares a kiss with fellow female character Eiko Hasigaway. According to writers, the kiss wasn’t just added for shock value. Catwoman has indeed come out of the closet. 

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

If you are one of the many fans who enjoyed her flirtation with Batman, don't worry, because that’s not going anywhere.

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

This big reveal comes about 10 years after Catwoman won a 2004 GLAAD media award for its openly gay character Holly Robinson.

What do you think of this big reveal? Did you see it coming?
