In the DC comic world, there are three characters that are fan favorites since their inception in the early 20th Century. They are known as the Trinity. They are Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Between the three of them, Wonder Woman has been the only female superhero with a clout. She goes on the list of the most popular superhero in existence.
After her first appearance in 1941Wonder Woman also known as Princess Diana of Themyscira fan could not get enough of this powerhouse of a woman. There was something about a woman with the strength that drew audiences to never tire of her. She has also been the victim of many speculations.
As Wonder Woman has her origins on the island of Themyscira which are populated by only Amazonian women, fans have long speculated that Diana was in fact, gay or at the very least bisexual. Sexuality and comic book characters have long had a history as these fictional characters are the young reader’s first introduction to sexuality and sex in general. Now, Thanks to a new interview Comicosity conducted with DC Comics’ Greg Rucka, writer of Wonder Woman’s DC Universe Rebirth series, that fan rumor has got a definite answer.
When asked if Diana was queer, Rucka gave this complicated reply:
I think it’s more complicated though. This is inherently the problem with Diana: we’ve had a long history of people — for a variety of reasons, including sometimes pure titillation, which I think is the worst reason — say, “Ooo. Look. It’s the Amazons. They’re gay!”
And 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.
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.
But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, “You’re gay.” They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist.”
