Batman's fictional character Catwoman aka Selina Kyle has finally come out of the closet about her sexuality in the latest issue revealing that she is a bisexual.

In Catwoman #39, Kyle is the head of Gotham's Calabrese crime family, and, on the brink of a mob war, shares a kiss with the woman currently in the Catwoman costume, Eiko Hasigaway, in a moment that promises that have major ramifications for both characters as the storyline progresses, Deadline.com reported.

Catwoman writer Genevieve Valentine said in her blog that this wasn't a revelation so much as a confirmation and the moment between Kyle and Hasigaway isn't meant to titillate, though, but lends the characters depth, especially with war right on the horizon in issue #40.

DC has struggled to date when it comes to representation, while there are plenty of LGBT characters like Batwoman, Midnighter, Apollo, and Green Lantern Alan Scott and few enjoy the same prominence as the core Justice Leaguers.
