"She's flirted around it - often quite literally - for years now; for me, this wasn't a revelation so much as a confirmation," series writer Genevieve Valentine said in her blog on Thursday.

For her official coming out, Catwoman, a.k.a. Selina Kyle, has a passionate kiss with Eiko, who "seemed like the right person: intelligent, driven, in that uncanny valley of Almost Catwoman," Valentine said.

"Was it a surprise for them? In terms of their sexualities, not particularly; certainly it's no surprise to Selina that she has an attraction to a woman. Is this particular kiss a surprise? It's definitely surprising; this is the very last thing you're supposed to be getting into on the brink of war, and they both know it."
