    Has Psylocke ever had a good one? The most positive I can think of is Angel, and that ended up being toxic in the end. Then there was Fantomex, which was toxic. Then Cluster, who left her for Fantomex, so not great. When Cable clones.

    Not that I wish none of those had happened. They were good story elements; it just happened the good story concerned unhealthy relationships.


    Hazmat and Mettle were a love too pure for this world.


    Don't let the X-boards find out about this or you'll get buried by a certain faction.

    How nihilistically droll of you.

    In terms of best love story in a single story/arc, I think it has be Matt Murdock/Karen Page in BORN AGAIN. Frank Miller is not the most enlightened man when it comes to showing women and so on...but still his portrayal of the redemptive power of love and the need for a man and a woman for each other shines in that book and nothing beats that final image of Karen and Matt in a homage to the famous Freewheelin' Bob Dylan cover. It's a real shame that Kevin Smith was allowed to write for Marvel because Karen Page did not deserve to die after being the emotional core of one of the greatest Marvel stories ever...and thanks to Deborah Ann Woll's wonderful performance on the Netflix show, I hope eventually they find a way to bring Karen back.

    As far as long time serial narrative romances go, Peter/Mary Jane is the greatest love story in superhero comics. Certainly the greatest love story in Marvel Comics. There's great stories in every stage of their relationship. Whether it's their first date and meeting (ASM #42-43-44), it's their actual courtship (Conway's run from ASM #121-22 to ASM #149). Their first kiss (ASM #143). Then their breakup and eventual second friendship where MJ pours her heart to Peter (ASM#259), which leads Peter to treat her as his confidant eventually confessing how he got Uncle Ben killed. Likewise, their Wedding Annual is a great story. The marriage years of the couple included many classics like KLH, Michelinie's run with DeFalco which included the America Tour, and Venom. The Cosmic Spider-Man story. JMD's entire Spectacular Run, Conway's Tombstone story, Mackie's Identity Crisis, JMS' Doomed Affairs, Book of Ezekiel, Back in Black, To Have and to Hold, Spider-Man Blue.

    I also like Luke/Jessica a lot.
    Agreed with Peter/MJ first and foremost, but Matt/Karen and Luke Cage/Jessica Jones are good, too, and I will not be looking forward to the day somebody decides to break up Luke and Jessica.

    That is the one thing that I am disappointed with Marvel about.
    Generally agreed, but I think that amounts to a lot of the writers having some pretty unhealthy ideas about what love is and should be, or what relationships are like.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    Best: Cyclops and Lee Forrester. They were fun and good for each other. She doesn't let him get away with anything and he's dependable and kind. I'm sad he didn't give up the hero life to stay with her.

    Worst: Scarlet Witch and Wonder Man. Gross because he hit on her when her husband was all messed up ans tired to replacr him.

    I'd like to see: Scarlet Witch and Iron Man, though I love Scarlet Witch and Voodoo if they are still together. I don't know why. Maybe all the red and because Cap is taken? If Sharon dies, Wanda should go for it. After a respectful amount of time of course.

    And Cyclops and Dazzler. He's a fan of her music and she lacks confidence as an X-Man. He's always believed in her and she needs that. He's also shown he's potentially willing to leave the X-Men for love (at least for a bit) and she's bever quite sure if she wants to be a hero. Maybe they can figure it out together.

    BEST COUPLES
    1. Wiccan and Hulkling
    2. Cyclops and Emma Frost
    3. Moonstone and Hawkeye

    Quite polar opposites; I love the utter purity and brilliance of Wiccan and Hulkling (and it was the first every LGBT+ couple in comics I could root for). And I love the complexity and maturity of Cyclops/Emma and Moonstone/Hawkeye. It's not simple, it's detailed and both felt much more real as relationships than most other comic romances.

    "We are Shakespeare. We are Michelangelo. We are Tchaikovsky. We are Turing. We are Mercury. We are Wilde. We are Lincoln, Lorca, Leonardo da Vinci. We are Alexander the Great. We are Fredrick the Great. We are Rustin. We are Addams. We are Marsha! Marsha Marsha Marsha! We so generous, we DeGeneres. We are Ziggy Stardust hooked to the silver screen. Controversially we are Malcolm X. We are Plato. We are Aristotle. We are RuPaul, god dammit! And yes, we are Woolf."
