*There was a short running Jughead series where he became a time cop, and his partner/love interest was a girl named January McAndrews. She is the distant descendant of Archie, and looks pretty similar to him. One could infer that Jughead is attracted to her because she looks so much like Archie, and that Jughead could never reveal his true feelings, since Archie is so girl crazy. His cattiness with Veronica could come from this as well.

* [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel]] and [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman]] certainly qualify. In the first story they appear in together, ''Avengers Annual #10'', Carol’s powers and memories are stolen, and she is left to fall to her death over the Golden Gate Bridge until Spider-Woman swoops in to the stranger’s rescue — a courageous hero come to save a DamselInDistress. For the rest of the issue, Jess is very protective of Carol and is determined to figure out how to help her recover. In the decades since, Jess and Carol have remained “best friends”, often playfully teasing each other or bickering LikeAnOldMarriedCouple during their team-ups.

** As of ''Generation Lost'', [[FoeYay Max Lord]] seems to have gotten in on this. His fight with Booster reads so much like an abusive, jealous ex that fandom's started making cracks about how his killing Ted was really just so he could have Booster all to himself.

* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and ComicBook/{{Bucky|Barnes}}. Cap almost constantly mourned Bucky when he was brought out of the ice; he had to be snapped out of it with an intervention. And there was an Elseworld where Namor woke Cap and the only word he could say was "Bucky."

* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and ComicBook/{{Bucky|Barnes}}. Cap almost constantly mourned Bucky when he was brought out of the ice; he had to be snapped out of it with an intervention. And there was an Elseworld where Namor woke Cap and the only word he could say was "Bucky."" After Bucky came back following the Winter Soldier series, this was dialled up significantly, which, combined with Steve's similar dynamic with Falcon (who, out of respect for Steve, sought out and befriended Bucky, becoming his closest male friend besides Steve), lead to a weird three-way situation where all three men would regularly engage in HoYay shenenigans with either one of the other.


Added DiffLines:

* Really, Captain America has this with most men he meets and befriends. Frequent ally D-Man actually invited Steve to shower with him when they first met after a workout, which ''Steve accepted''. Years later, D-Man would be revealed as gay, which...really isn't surprising when you take those early scenes into account, alongside D-Man's noted lack of female love interests.
* Another popular companion for Steve is ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}. After the two became friends, they'd regularly be scene working out together, would grin like schoolgirls any time they saw one-another, and generally depicted as really close. Though Steve has many companions he's extremely close to, until the resurgence of Bucky, Hawkeye was the go-to for Steve's most loyal companion when Iron Man wasn't an option.
** During Hawkeye's first solo-miniseries, what's essentially four issues of Clint courting his future wife, Mockingbird, is interrupted by them randomly running into an out-of-costume Captain America. Though Clint claims that the tension is because he's concerned that Bobbi might find Steve more attractive than him, his behaviour actually comes off more like a man who's just bumped into his ex.
** During Busiek's first arc, the Avengers are transformed into figures in a fantasy setting, with Steve being the only one to retain his actual memories. The first person he seeks out is Hawkeye, who only needs to gaze into Steve's eyes for a second before his true identity and memories resurface. When thanking Steve for seeking him out first, Steve happily responds that he was the obvious choice, a statement that comes off as mildly flirtly.
** At one point, when Steve became dissilusioned with the Avengers after a disagreement on killing, Hawkeye follows him out, takes him to a bar to cheer him up, and when he's still glum, suggests they just form their own team together. It wasn't intended as such, but it does end up coming off as if Clint is trying to get Steve to run away with him.
** During the conflict between the Thunderbolts and the Avengers, Clint is conflicted due to having been a long-time member of the latter, but having trained the former and helped them become the heroes they are now. The focal point of the conflict, however, ends up being Clint's inability to decide between Karla, his ex-girlfriend with whom he was in love with, and Steve. Though Steve was confident that he'd choose him, he's shown to be hurt when Clint instead chooses Karla, and the two act like a recently broken up couple at the end.
** Its notable that Clint also has frequent problems butting heads with other close male friends of Cap. Though his conflict with Falcon was more due to Henry Peter Gyrich's interference, his rivalry with Bucky is, largely, based on jealousy over his closeness with Steve. When he finds out about Bucky being alive and becoming the new Captain America, he angrily confronts him in a manner not unlike a jealous lover, he picks an argument with him over how he was the 'first choice' of Steve's replacement, and later takes the opportunity to embarrass Bucky in front of Steve, ostensibly just to show him up in front of their mutual friend. The pair ''did'' patch things up (in fact, they had their own share of these moments briefly), but only did so for Steve's sake, and would later have a similar falling out over their mutual relationship with Black Widow (Bucky's long-time girlfriend and the love of his life, whom Clint had recently had a fling with during an emotional moment in both their lives).


Added DiffLines:

* Piper of course has this with his good pal Wally West, ComicBook/TheFlash, with whom he turned away from crime for. Besides his wife Linda, Wally's closest companion is often depicted as being Piper, who in-turn became such good friends with Linda that the three often come across as a polygamous couple. When Piper was arrested for an assassination attempt, Wally became laser-focused on proving his innocence and finding the ones responsible, dedication he only showed normally when Linda was in danger.
** As noted with Nightwing, Dick and Wally are also frequently shown to be closer than brothers, something that was played up after Wally returned to reality after ''Rebirth''. In fact, Wally and Dick's relationship has become Wally's closest bond, thanks to the world's memory of Wally being missing.


Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/MoonKnight and his pilot Frenchie in spades, with a recent retelling of his origin even presenting their first meeting as if Frenchie was trying to pick Marc up at a bar. In this case its intentional, as Frenchie ''is'' in fact gay and ''was'' in love with Marc, but Marc, being straight and too focused on his work, didn't notice. When the two reconnected after Frenchie moved on, their relationship is depicted as being highly sour, not unlike two exes after a bitter break-up.
