    Itís kind of odd how my favorite friendships mostly involve the batfamily but hey what can you do.

    1. Dick Grayson and Wally West

    2. Jason Todd and Roy Harper (Roy shot Batman with a knockout arrow to rescue Jason, if thatís not friendship I donít know whatís up).

    3. Tim Drake and Conner Kent

    4. Damian Wayne and Jon Kent

    5. Green Lantern and Green Arrow (Hal and Ollie)

    What I want to see more of?

    Shazam and Cyborg. New 52 and DCyou felt like it was really setting those two up as friends and Iíd like it if we got more of that. Maybe just hanging out during Titans Academy.

    Why do I think we've done this thread before -- and pretty recently.

    Well, my favorite friendship was sort of a missed opportunity. It was in JSA -- the Michael Holt Mister Terrific and the Pieter Cross Doctor Mid-Nite. It looked for a while that they were going to have them become best friends, but there was too much else going on in the book, and that never really developed. I think it would have been a good way to go. There are so few close friendships in comics (though most of the heroes get along pretty well).

    I'll keep it simple - Clark and Bruce. Superman and Batman. The Man of Steel and the Dark Knight. Captain Sunshine and his awkward goth mate.

    I'm very much looking forward to Waid's World's Finest book.

    I am also a fan of Clark and Dick Grayson's friendship. That's just wholesome.
    Theorising that it could travel within its own timeline, DC stepped into the Crisis accelerator and vanished. DC awoke to find itself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not its own, and driven by editorial to change history *for the better* *to be more cohesive* *Silver Age nostalgia* *for the sake of it*. And so DC finds itself leaping from Crisis to Crisis, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that the next leap will be to a perfect DC UniverseÖ

    Ted Kord and Booster Gold is a somewhat underrated friendship.

    I also really like Kal and Jimmy, and while we're at it, Diana and Etta Candy.

    I second those too. Also Lois and Jimmy. She most likely knows Jimmy longer than Clark.

    Batman and Robin. Bruce and Dick. The most important friendship in comics.
    After that, Superman, Batman and Robin ( Golden/Silver age)… before Miller screwed that up, and turned Bruce away from the light.
    Dick and Wally.
    Alan and Jay.
    Arrow and Lantern.
    Dick and Donna.
    Garth, Rokk, and Imra.

    Ooh, I like this one, because all-too often any attempt at opposite-sex friendships turns into a romance, and yet I don't think Dick and Donna have ever seriously considered the notion, which makes it even cooler. 'Who is Donna Troy?' was a great issue showcasing Dick's willingness to go the extra mile for Donna.

    Garth, Rokk, and Imra.
    And the Legion has some great friendships. In the Threeboot, we got to see that Garth had a poster of Rokk, from his days as a magnoball champion, on the wall of his room, which was cheeky and fun (since it's probably something Rokk looks back at and rolls his eyes, these days). Also Timber Wolf and Blok, in the classic continuity, Mon-El and Ultra Boy, Shady and Phantom Girl, Star Boy and Sun Boy (and later, Sun Boy and Polar Boy). Quite a few different friendships in a team as big as the Legion!
