DC Comics Writer Confirms Wonder Woman Has Had Relationships With Other Women

"The answer is obviously yes."

In an interview with Comicosity on Thursday, Greg Rucka, the current writer of DC Comics’ Wonder Woman, confirmed that the Amazon princess plays for both teams.

"Now, are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women?" replied Rucka when asked directly if the Wonder Woman he and artist Nicola Scott have introduced in their latest work is queer. "As Nicola and I approach it, the answer is obviously yes."

Rucka went on to explain that her queerness shouldn't come as a total shock, since Diana originally comes from an island paradise that consists solely of women:

It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able — in a context where one can live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner — to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women.

The author also pointed out that, at least in Wonder Woman's world, the concepts of being "straight" and "gay" don't actually exist.

"An Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, 'You’re gay,'" he said. "They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist."


Needless to say, a lot of fans were very excited to hear this news:

Stoked Wonder Woman is bi bc now I have a chance with her 🤘

dc: wonder woman is bissexual me:

why is everyone saying "yay wonder woman is bi now i can date her" Um? she literally has a girlfriend, Me,


It makes me happy that Wonder Woman is out. ❤️💛💚💙💜

While some people thought, well, Duh.

Wonder Woman comes from an island where there are only women. Glad it's being highlighted, but this really isn't news. 😃

Wonder Woman literally grew up on an island with only women. Ofc she's bi.

My timeline is divided between "no duh wonder woman is queer, she's from a feminist utopia" And "If it's not shown on panel it's not canon"

You'll be able to see Diana in action on the big screen when DC’s Wonder Woman movie, starring Gal Gadot as Diana and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, hits move theaters next June.

And although it seems Wonder Woman's queerness isn't likely to be reflected in the upcoming blockbuster, Rucka insists that he has never sensed any pushback against portraying her character as queer from the higher-ups at DC.

“No one wants to be taken out of context by ignorant people, but nobody at DC has ever said, ‘She’s gotta be straight.’ Nobody. Ever. They’ve never blinked at this."
