In the world of comic books, many superheroes have become involved romantically with each other. Sometimes these were just hook ups, but other times these relationships resulted in life long bonds or marriages. Some of these relationships stand the test of time like the union of Reed Richards and Sue Storm, which is perhaps the most iconic marriage in all of comics. Other times these relationships take a dark turn, like when Hank Pym (aka Ant-Man) committed spousal abuse and beat his wife Janet van Dyne (aka the Wasp).
There are many famous superhero romances like Vision and Scarlett Witch, Kitty Pryde and Colossus, Gambit and Rogue, Cyclops and Jean Grey, Mr. Miracle and Big Barda, Storm and Black Panther, Green Arrow and Black Canary, and of course Daredevil and Elektra. There have been iconic supervillain romances too, like the Joker and Harley Quinn. There are also some relationships have been downright disgusting, like the hook up between Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch in Marvel’s Ultimate universe – they’re brother and sister! Comic book writers are always looking for new, exciting angles and storylines. In fact, in many ways comic books are almost like soap operas.
Superman recently broke up with his long time love interest Lois Lane, and instead writers paired him up with Wonder Woman. Many superheroes seem to have a strong connection with one another, but perhaps crime fighting simply puts too much strain on their love life and they never end up getting together. It’s fun to wonder, though. Here’s a look at 10 superhero couples that we would love to see become a reality.
10 Daredevil and Jessica Jones
Jessica Jones has a solid relationship with Luke Cage, and the upcoming Netflix series will likely deal with that pairing heavily. However, she really should be with someone just as damaged as she is. It may not be in the best interests of the characters, but it sure would be fun to see.
9 Batman and Wonder Woman
Even though Superman and Wonder Woman are an item now, it is Batman and Wonder Woman that would make a much better couple. A potential romance between the two was heavily hinted at in the Justice League Unlimited cartoon from the earlier aughts, and the recent trailers for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice also seem to suggest there might be some romance happening between the Dark Knight and Princess Diana of Themyscira.
8 Batman and Catwoman
Batman rarely shows any mercy to his rogues gallery - that is except for Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman. Batman and Catwoman have never officially been an item despite the romantic chemistry and sexual tension the pair share. Even though Catwoman has tried to reform herself and change her ways she always ends up going back to a life of crime, and the Caped Crusader can simply never be with a criminal.
7 Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen
Before Mary Jane or even Liz Allen and Betty Brandt, there was Gwen Stacey. Gwen Stacey was also Peter Parker’s one true love, but her death at the hands of the Green Goblin meant the couple never got to live happily ever after. Death in comic books is never finite, and few characters ever stay dead.
6 Batman and Zatanna
Bruce Wayne trained tirelessly and learned numerous martial arts to become the Batman. He even learned to become a legendary escape artist from the great Zatara. It was here that he met Zatara’s daughter Zatanna, and there were teases of a potential relationship between Batman and Zatanna in the Justice League Unlimited cartoon.
5 The Hulk and Black Widow
Avengers: Age of Ultron pushed aside Betty Ross and gave Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk a new potential love interest in Black Widow. The relationship was hinted at, but nothing came of it in the movie as the Hulk banished himself into the unknown after he felt guilty for nearly destroying a city in South Africa.
4 Star-Lord and Captain Marvel
Star-Lord is perhaps one of the biggest womanizers in the Marvel universe. But he is a hero, and a true hero can’t sleep around like that, so we think Star-Lord really needs to settle down.
3 Ant-Man and Wasp
Hank Pym (aka Ant-Man) and his wife Janet Van Dyne (aka the Wasp) are one of the most iconic couples in the comic book world, but what would it be like if a different Ant-Man and Wasp became an item? In the recent Ant-Man movie, Scott Lang became the new Ant-Man and Hope Van Dyne, who is the daughter of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, was teased as becoming the new Wasp.
2 Superboy and Miss Martian
The short lived and much beloved DC cartoon Young Justice, hinted at a romantic relationship that would be a welcomed addition to the pages of any number of DC comics.
1 Deadpool and Squirrel Girl
The pure absurdity of this hook up means it’s something that should happen. The Merc with a Mouth and the mutant known as Squirrel Girl would make such a unique pairing.
If Squirrel Girl started dating Deadpool, it wouldn’t be the first time she was involved with a hero who possessed a healing factor. In New Avengers it was heavily implied she had become involved with Wolverine. Deadpool and Squirrel Girl would be a relationship filled with fun and jokes, and what could be better than that?
