DC Comics has become a little bit queerer as Themyscira, the island home of Wonder Woman, officially welcomed its first known trans Amazon.
The creators of DC’s new series Nubia and the Amazons have confirmed that trans women can be Amazons and are welcomed onto Themyscira – the island nation of the female warrior women known as the Amazons.
The first comic in the series begins with a flashback to Bia’s arrival on Themyscira. In the DC universe, the Amazons are born through the Well of Souls, a portal through which women who died as a result of violence at the hands of men are given a new life among the immortal Amazons. As part of this process, their memories of their previous lives are erased.
