Meanwhile, few had been lucky with love like Tony Stark, and a few lost their love interest.

    Greatest Superhero Couples

    1. Mr. Fantastic And Invisible Woman

    Sue and Reed

    They were Marvel’s first married couple and their relationship remains the core of the Fantastic Four family. The couple went through difficult situations and still stuck with each other. They have easily and delicately managed to keep their relationship afloat and also managed to fight off supervillains. Also, Reed Richards has proved to be devoted to Sue Strom time and again.

    2. Spider-Man And Gwen Stacy

    Spiderman and Gwen

    The ‘Amazing Spider-Man‘ felt refreshing, especially with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone’s on-screen pairing. Also out of all three Spider-Man, Garfield lucked out in romance, when he almost couldn’t save Gwen Stacy. But in ‘Spiderman: No Way Home‘, he found his redemption when he saved MJ, Tom Holland’s Spiderman’s love interest. When Peter is reluctant to reveal his identity, Gwen leaves and he webs her to pull her back and exposes who he was as they kiss. No other versions of Spider-Man shared their level of chemistry.

    3. Batman And Catwoman

    Batman and Catwomen

    It is undeniable that Batman and Catwomen are the sexiest and zest couple in the superhero universe. The chemistry between a crime-fighter and a sultry thief just makes them attractive even more. Although in one of the comic’s alternate universes Batman and Catwoman are married and share a daughter who grows up to become a crime-fighting huntress. All the versions of them share a sizzling chemistry from ‘Batman Return‘ (Michelle Pfeiffer and Micheal Keaton) to ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ (Anne Hathaway and Micheal Keaton). They might be on opposite sides, but Catwoman brings the light into Batman’s world of darkness.

    4. Captain America And Peggy Carter

    Captain America and Peggy Cater

    It’s the tragic end that paved a happy ending for this couple. Since ‘Captain America: The First Soldier’, their connection was obvious, but circumstances did not play in their favor, leading Steve Rogers to hold on to the last dance. Peggy Carter was a beautiful and charming woman, but it was her skills and intelligence that Rogers was attracted to. The couple has been very unlucky in love, and by the time Steve woke up in the 21st century, Peggy was already old and couldn’t remember him. But finally in ‘Avengers: End Game‘ Steve Rogers decided to go back in time and grow old with his love. Their love story was innocent and pure, they radiated promise and warmth, and the fans were overjoyed by their reunion.

    5. Wonder Women and Steve Trevor

    Wonder Women and Steve Trevor

    The 2018 Wonder Women film exhibited terrific chemistry between Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Although the pair did not end up together in every reboot. In the comic version, Steve Trevor married another woman, while Wonder Woman ended up with Superman. However, in the final issue of the original Wonder Women series, Steve Trevor and Wonder Woman finally end up together. Steve has been in love with Diana, more precisely in love with her innocence and curiosity. And since then he comes in and out of her life, time and again being reborn or brought back to life in some magical ways.

    Purely Toxic Superhero Romances

    1. Joker And Harley Quinn

    Joker and Quinn

    No other superhero couple is as toxic as Joker and Harley Quinn. He tortured, tormented, and brainwashed Quinn. Joker used Quinn only to get out of prison and mentally abused her to the point where she developed the case of Stockholm Syndrome. She never stopped justifying Joker’s abusive behavior. She was better off with Poison Ivy who treated her with respect and kindness.

    2. Hank Pym And Janet Van Dye

    Hank and Janet

    Though Hank Pym and Janet Van Dye are the greatest superheroes and one of the most adored couples, they are toxic for each other. Hank Pym was manic and according to a very infamous incident, he beat Janet across the face. The Pym particles messed with his brain chemistry which made him even worse. They have been partners for years becoming and founding Avengers together, but with their on-again-off-again relationship, they became toxic for each other.

    3. Black Widow And Hulk

    Hulk and Black Widow

    Black Widow and Hulk are the clear adaptation of ‘Beauty and the Beast‘. Though Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo shared a fair amount of chemistry their characters just did not fit well. Also, Black Widow was well connected to Hawkeye, and Hulk was married to Betty Ross. Although Natasha Romannaff can calm down an angry Hulk, which shows their strong bond, they don’t necessarily make a good on-screen couple. MCU has given many great and iconic pairs, but sadly Hulk and Black Widow don’t make it up to the list.

    4. Clark Kent And Lana Lang

    Lana Lang and Superman

    The only thing worse in superhero films other than poor graphics is a forced romance. The ‘Smallville‘ version which lasted for eleven seasons just kept making Lana Lang a forced love interest of Clark Kent. Also, something did not feel right about Tom Welling and Kristen Kreuk’s romance. They did not share great on-screen chemistry, instead, Clark Kent shared great chemistry with his best friend Chloe in the ‘Smallville‘ version. In contrast, Clark Kent shared fabulous chemistry with Lois Lane in ‘Superman & Lois‘ version.

    5. Oliver Queen And Felicity Smoak

    Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak

    Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak’s love story started out to be beautiful and dreamy but took the plunge into toxicity. It began with Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) just being a one-time character, but due to fans’ adoration, she became Oliver Queen’s love interest fighting for justice together. Unfortunately, their love story did not get the justice it deserved. Towards the third season of ‘Arrow‘, the fans loved their chemistry but soon she became selfish and countered Oliver’s orders. The couple was mutually toxic and was never transparent with each other. Oliver Queen kept secrets from Smoak about his son William. Many fans strongly believed that Felicity should have been with Ray and Oliver should have ended up with Laurel.
