Los Angeles: Superhero Batman's enemy and romantic interest Catwoman, Selina Kyle, has come out bisexual in the latest issue of 'Catwoman' comic book.

Selina 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 have major ramifications for both characters as the storyline progresses, reported the Verge.

In her blog, series writer Genevieve Valentine wrote that, for her, "this wasn't a revelation so much as a confirmation."

Selina Kyle's relationships outside of the one she shares with Bruce Wayne have been viewed with ambiguity for years, and adding this angle to her character was "indispensable".

The moment between Selina and Eiko in Catwoman #39 is not meant to titillate, though, but lends the characters depth, especially with war right on the horizon in issue #40.
