I have some very awesome friends. You could almost argue they're SUPER FRIENDS!
And one of my Super-duper friends is the one and only Elizabeth Seckman. I've interviewed her once or twice, and also reviewed her book.
Add to that, Super-E has allowed everyone's favorite private investigator to ramble on her website. The most (absurdly) popular one is "How To Get Away With Cheating". I also did one on vacation spots for cheating.
I asked Elizabeth about her favorite super hero couples. Here's what she wrote:
Superman and Wonder Woman
Forget Lois Lane. She gets on this lady's nerves. She is just too mortal to be as bad ass as she wants to be. Dianna Prince has all the skills and power to hang alongside Clark Kent. They're perfect! What took DC so long to figure this out?
Batman and Catwoman
Selena Kyle is just naughty enough to balance out Bruce Wayne's near self-loathing. It's like Bruce feels guilty for being so awesome, but not Selena. In typical feline fashion, she is cool, aloof, and feels no remorse for who or what she's done.
Spiderman and Mary Jane Watson
Mary Jane only wins because Gwen Stacey is dead. My heart's still breaking and I figure Peter Parker is sweet (okay, I think he's sweet) and he should be happy and get to move on.
The Thing and Alicia Masters
Ben is grumpy and ugly, but buried under all that orange rock, he's a sweetheart. I will refrain from making the pun about love being blind with this couple- it's just too easy and too mean. But still. Even a blind Alicia has to know Ben Grimm doesn't look normal, but it doesn't matter. She loves him unconditionally. We're just glad Stan Lee has assured us Ben has a, um, thing. We're so happy for the couple!
Cyclops and Emma Frost
Not sure what it was about Scott Summers and Jean Grey that annoyed me as a couple. Perhaps it was that she was always making googly eyes at Wolverine or her tendency to constantly die or turn evil. Something about the match didn't work. The Summers/Frost pairing is perfect- even if they have some irony in their names.
So, Gentle Readers...here's the link of Super E's favorite couples. As for me, there can be only one answer.
