    Truth is Jay & Alan) Flash/Green Lantern were actually more of a Trio/Trinity with Wonder Woman (see Cavalcade.
    While Superman Batman & Robin were the Trio/Trinity in World's Finest.
    Just history has kid of re-written/retconed it.

    Since the mid-'70s when I first discovered Comics Cavalcade, I have also thought of All-American's top-three superheroes as a trio.

    There's a lot of good and established friendships like Bruce and Clark, Dick and Wally, Blue and Gold... But my favorite is probably the newest of the bunch in these two;

    More like Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. Think Grumpy Old Men as young superheroes. Hijinks, feuding, friendship.

    So:

    On November 13, 2599, Michael Jon Carter stole a security robot named Skeets, a Legion flight-ring, Brainiac 5's force-field belt, and Rip Hunter's Time Sphere. And was asked to remove himself from the 25th Century. That request came from the future JL.
    Deep down, he knew they were right, but he also knew that someday, he would return.
    With nowhere else to go, he went back in time and appeared at the home of 21st Century hero Theodore Stephen Kord. Sometime earlier, Kord had been thrown out of his Centuries JL, requesting that he never return.
    Can two unemployed Super-Men share an apartment without driving each other crazy!?

    It's a difficult choice.

    I liked Batman/Superman in the old days, but in the more modern era, it's typically been less stellar. Batgod contributes a lot.

    I enjoyed Barry/Hal (the only Flash/GL team up I've read), but not enough to make them a favorite.

    Hal and Ollie did have some good stuff in certain eras.

    Ollie and Dinah and Dick and Barbara have too much in the way of romantic understones (starting as soon as they worked together much in the 1970s) for me to qualify them as buddy-cops.

    I liked Hawkman/Atom friendship in what I read, though I did feel the lack of Hawkgirl (as she was then) - she was hero, too, but didn't merit same buddy status.

    I can't read Beetle and Booster because I liked early Beetle, and hated the buffoonish characterization. I love the idea of how close they are. Some good stuff when they are in more serious mode. But I cannot stand to read so much of their "wacky hijinks" stuff that that's a real turn off for me. Fire/Ice, also an idea I like, have a lot of the same type of humor, which is a problem for me.

    I absolutely adore Vic and Gar in the 1980s.

    Never read the comics with Huntress and Powergirl.

    So, I'm going to tentatively pick Vic and Gar and "other" for Barry and Ralph. I absolutely love the friendship between Donna and Dick in the 1980s, too, but don't know if they qualify for buddy cop or not?

    As I write this comment, Blue Beetle and Booster Gold are tied with Batman and Superman for first place in the poll, and I am here for that tie.

    I recently read some old Charlton Ditko content, and while I don't think Ditko ever had the Question meet the Blue Beetle, I know he had Ted Kord meet Vic Sage in at least one story, and I really liked that. They didn't seem to have any idea of each others' identities, and their meeting was more of a light irony for the reader, but they got along famously, owing to of all things a shared interest in hating on modern art. It was a story about an art vandal though, so fit the theme to the character I guess.
