Wonder Woman comics writer Greg Rucka says that the superhuman of Themyscira island, Diana Prince, has had relationships with other women.

The 46-year-old novelist said that Diana is “obviously” bisexual, reported Variety.

When asked the sexual orientation of the popular fictional character of DC comics, Rucka said, “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? It makes no logical sense otherwise.”

Rucka went on to discuss the character’s origins on the female-only island as well as the romantic relationships between the Amazons.

“It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to 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. But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, ‘You’re gay.’ They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist.”

He continued, “Now, are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women? As Nicola (Scott) and I approach it, the answer is obviously yes.

“But perhaps foremost among them is, if no, then she leaves paradise only because of a potential romantic relationship with Steve (Trevor).”

DC’s upcoming Wonder Woman film stars Gal Gadot in the titular role alongside Chris Pine and Robin Wright.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, the film will hit theatres next year in June.
