Who’d win in a fight between Superman and Spawn? How the f*ck old is Cable? And what in the holy hell is a Megatron? When the tough questions arise, Panels on Pages will gather the facts, but it’s up to the PoP!ulation to draw its own conclusions. So come on… Riddle Me This!
When it comes to romance, superheros tend to have a lot of it, and it all tends to go horribly wrong along the way. Even so, there’s plenty of chemistry in these couples to make our hearts go pitter-patter. So Riddle Me This, PoP!ulation: Which is your favorite comic movie couple?
(Going with movies here because, seriously, there are way too many couples in comics canon to narrow the field.)
Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle
She’s a crook and he’s a masked vigilante, but they later get their happily ever after while Alfred watches on, sipping his Fernet Branca.
Thor and Jane Foster
She’s gotten to meet the parents, and he gave up the chance to rule Asgard in order to spend his life with her. Which means she’ll probably die in the next movie.
Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter
Easily the sweetest and most chaste relationship in the entire Marvel movie universe, I dare you not to well up a bit at the end of Captain America.
Tony Stark and Pepper Potts
Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow look good together. Plus, Stark makes her CEO of his company. That’s trust right there.
Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy
The current incarnation of Spider-Man has a much better love story than the last one. But we all know that it’s going to end very, very badly.
Cyclops and Jean Grey
Speaking of ending very, very badly…
Reed Richards and Sue Storm
They’re the married couple on the list… That’s really all I’ve got.
Clark Kent and Lois Lane
Even if you didn’t like Man of Steel, you have to admit that Henry Cavill and Amy Adams are cute together. They’d make adorable Superbabies.
Daredevil and Elektra
Again, it doesn’t end well, but Ben and Jen did end up getting married for realsies, so that has to count for something, right?
Nite Owl and Silk Spectre
And the award for hottest sex in an Owlship goes to…
