    Default Pitch An Unconventional Romantic Pairing

    Suggest an oddball coupling of two DC characters and make your case for why it would work.

    Constantine and Lobo. Both are hard drinking, hard smoking, insufferable jerks - they have a lot in common.

    Dick Grayson and Power Girl.

    Meme butt and meme boobs. Dick is used to dating aliens more powerful than him. They both like to have fun. And Peeg doesn't have a token batcharacter to hang with like the others as Helena Wayne will probably never come back to life and be her friend. Also Kory vs Babs is played out, and I think Peeg is well liked by writers and fans enough to withstand the Dickbabs vs Dickkory war.

    Booster Gold and Jade.

    They both wanna be famous and can be.. ahh.. don't really know a nicer word but... attention wh*res. They can be massive attention wh*res. They're also both pretty immature but in different ways (Jade usually emotionally and experience wise, Booster at least humor wise), so I can see some conflict there to keep them and readers on their toes or at least bounce off each other.

    Obsidian and Sanderson "Sandy/Sandman" Hawkins.

    Older fans may remember an old rumor that Robinson/Goyer/Sadowski had intended for Sandy to be gay in the 1999 JSA relaunch before Johns had him crush on Hawkgirl out of nowhere the first issue that Goyer and Sadowski aren't on. So do that or make him bi. They're both introverted (with Todd being bad at people and Sandy being fine with them) and quiet, but Todd is much more hotheaded and insecure and Sandy being a very smooth operator so there can be a opposites attract sort of deal if that's your thing. Both of their powers make them prone to them wigging out and attacking the JSA They both have some issues with their powers, as in not being very fond of them. Obsidian needs someone who's nice and empathic and treats him like a princess. And Sandy seems to like taking care of other people even at the expense of himself, though Obsidian usually doesn't take kindly to people he loves getting hurt even for him.

    Dick Grayson and Caitlin Fairchild

    It would be a nice break from the usual Dick/Starfire and Dick/Babs pairing wars. Caitlin is super strong, smart and a red head. All the best aspects of Babs and Starfire while being something new and interesting.

    Zatanna and Blue Devil

    Yes, she kissed him in his first ongoing but that was a more playful flirtatious kiss rather than a serious romantic possibility. Still I like the possibilities that this pairing opens up. The problem with her pairing with Constantine is how it often undermines Zatanna's own creativity, knowledge of magic and cleverness in order to prop up John as the 'brains' and Zatanna as basically 'the brawn' of the magical community who needs to be told by Constantine on how to use her powers or get her ass kicked to show how powerful the latest threat is. Blue Devil, meanwhile, was an innocent stunt man who got fused to his costume and turned into a demon. Power wise he has your standard flying brick powers (durability, strength) along with his trident which can banish demons, Zee has magical knowledge and power but is a glass cannon. They complement each other by doing what the other can't. Plus they both work in show business so there is common ground there.

    The "w" button isn't that close to the "t" button - Freudian slip?


    Hmm...maybe Jaime Reyes and Maps? Both fun loving teens. Might have to deage or age up one of them a bit, not exactly sure what age either is beyond "teen". Comic book time is weird.

    Maxwell Lord and the Bialyan Queen Bee.
    Theme: JR Ewing marries Alexis Colby and DC makes the first soap opera comic, with a spy setting. Which one would out maneuver the other?
    It could be called Checkmate, with both of them secretly controlling groups of spies that battle, while they romance each other.
    And neither knows the other is the Black Queen or the White King...

    That would make for an outstanding mini-series!

    Maxima and Blackfire.

    Both are alien royalty. Both have alternated between hero and villain.

    Ted Kord and Delilah Tyler

    Both are legacy characters to heroes who weren't originally created by DC. Both have died (Delilah has yet to be revived).

    Diana and Pamela Isley.

    Both are bi/pan (or should be, even if DC does its best to deny it), both are explicitly here to change civilisation, both have (or should have) strong ecofeminist themes, both might be immortal (or close enough to not matter).

    Power Girl and Doctor Mid-Nite (Pieter Cross).

    For many reasons, but the irony of the world's most lusted after woman taking interest in a blind man is hilarious. I think there's quite a lot to work with with these two, but a decade later that still makes me laugh so I had to add it.

    Ascended is going to love the PowerWing shipping here.

    Jimmy Olsen and Miss Martian.

    Jon Kent and Mary Marvel. I was sold on this one, and while I don't think it works as an endgame it's cute
    May we never forget:

    Vixen and Dr. Mist. Wasn't Vixen lusting after some older dude in Justice League Detroit? Dale Gunn, I think his name was. LOL
