[30 Day Comic Book Challenge] Day 07 – Favorite Comic Couple
Do pairings that I’ve made up in my mind count? They don’t? Oh.
This is hard. I appreciate many couples. I dislike many couples. I can’t say that I have a true favorite pairing—at least not one that one could call canon. I am seriously struggling here with this one. I guess I could do non-romantic couples, but then, there are too many couples to choose from for me, and I’d be here writing all day.
Maybe instead of talking about a favorite romantic coupling I like, I’ll just talk about why I don’t have a favorite. Comic book characters are often capricious when it comes to relationships. Some of this is the writers’ fault because too damn many of them are on one project, and some of this is just character and the nature of their “jobs.”
For the ones who aren’t changing significant others like underwear, there is no break out pairing. The ones I like, I like. The ones I don’t like, I don’t. Some couples I like more than others, but not enough to say that one is my favorite.
Why won’t today’s topic let me be great?
