* ComicBook/{{Superman}} has zigzagged all over with FanPreferredCouple status. When the ComicBook/New52 launched, for the first time in the history of the characters, ComicBook/LoisLane and Superman was the Fan Preferred Couple, as he hooked up with ComicBook/WonderWoman instead of his classic love interest. Although Wonder Woman and Superman have long had staunch supporters and had been a couple in various Main/{{Elseworlds}} stories, the decision was unpopular enough that not only did they break it off, but DC brought back the original Superman and Lois to supplant the New 52 version in ComicBook/DCRebirth. Lois and Clark remain the Fan Preferred Couple for the New 52 versions of the characters, but it's not yet clear what will happen between them once the pre-reboot characters are introduced officially into the universe.

* Since the reboot of the DC Universe in the ComicBook/{{New 52}}, ComicBook/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/LoisLane are now the FanPreferredCouple for the first time in their decades long history, having always been the OfficialCouple in mainstream works. Superman is currently with ComicBook/WonderWoman, but you can see the sharp divide in writers and staff at DC between who prefers which girl better--various issues play up or play down Clark Kent's relationship with Lois as preferred by the writer. The more traditional fanbase still sees Lois as the most iconic love interest for Superman, and vice versa.
** And of course [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Superman]]/[[ComicBook/{{Wonder Woman}} Wonder Woman]] ''used to be this'' for fans and writers alike. They have always been the most powerful and obvious coupling in comic books considering not only their [[AllLovingHero similarities]] [[WorldsStrongestMan in de]][[FlyingBrick sign]] but also their personal lives/alter-egos. Their [[OfficialCouple now 'Official']] [[BattleCouple romantic union]] defeats the problems of [[PunyEarthlings fragility]] and complacency in writing that both [[DamselinDistress Lois Lane]] and [[DistressedDude Steve Trevor]] suffered from over the years with Clark and Diana respectively.

** [[Comicbook/RobinSeries Tim Drake]] and [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl2009}} Stephanie Brown]] is by far the most favourite pairing for these two characters. Even [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl2000}} Cassandra Cain]] can't keep up with that. The fans had decided about this very early in Tim's own series and any attempt to get different pairings was doomed to failure. The writers are clearly aware of this, otherwise the shiptease during their very first meeting in the New-52 wouldn't be there.

** Gwen is pretty much the only one of Peter's love interests who's even been popular enough to even merit ''comparison'' to MJ, and she's been dead for decades, and she was still always a distant second from pretty much the instant MJ was introduced. She's ''still'' second place after all this time, well behind MJ but way ahead of every single MJ replacement that Marvel has tried to trot out. Yet the people in charge ''still don't get the message'' about who Spidey fans want him paired with.

* In ComicBook/TheMightyThor, the [[JustForPun mightiest]] pairing is easily the FoeYay[=/=]HoYay[=/=]NotBloodSiblings-Yay of Thor/Loki. This is most likely because they're the two most established characters in the series, and have a few really heartwarming moments that the shippers run with. Plus, on the het side, the Thor/Jane (or Don/Jane, it's gotten confusing) Thor/Sif, and Thor/Amora shippers are too busy fighting with each other to deal with Thor/Loki shippers. Even though it's canon, most people regard DoctorDoom[=x=]Loki as a joke.

** Talking of Cassandra, though she had multiple potential love interests over the run of her series, the vast majority of her fans seem to be rooting for Cassandra/Stephanie - her longest, closest, and most consistent companion. This has caused a minor amount of ShipToShipCombat with the above, but due to the heavily overlapping fandoms, most seem willing to settle with an OT3 if it comes to it. Cassandra/Jason is probably her second most popular ship, despite their [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight near-complete lack of interaction.]]
** There is also Cassandra/Tim - even supporters of the above two pairings are liable to shipping these two. This is another reason for the OT3s.
