** 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.

* There's a ''lot'' of snark and wild theories about ComicBook/WonderWoman and the romantic life of a woman from an all-female society. Creator/PeterDavid hinted at it once in a ''Justice League Task Force'' story, and Gail Simone has tossed out a few hints of her own in her run.
** Hints, nothing. In issue 38, one of the Amazons states directly that "[some] have sworn themselves to Artemis, the virgin hunter, and Athena, the chaste warrior. Others choose [[UnusualEuphemism the way of]] [[ADateWithRosiePalms Narcissus]][[note]]Narcissus is a young man from Myth/ClassicalMythology who fell in love with his own reflected image[[/note]]. But most of us find satisfaction in each other. Three thousand years can be a long time, Reverend."
** To clarify: It's {{canon}}ical that the majority of the Amazons are either lesbian or bisexual, with several Amazons canonically having relationships with one another (including Queen Hippolyta/General Phillipus). Wonder Woman has not been confirmed as lesbian/bi in the comics...but WW writer Gail Simone has directly stated that as far as she's concerned Wonder Woman is bi, so WordOfGod has confirmed it, even if DC haven't got the guts to actually allow it to be addressed in the comics.
** Greg Rucka, Phil Jiminez and George Perez all agree with Gail on this one.

* ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'' delivers LesYay in abundance. Empowered is a {{Deconstruction}} of the FetishFuelStationAttendant, but that hasn't stopped her from being either suggested with the other two main females, or even getting molested by one female kidnapper. As for HoYay... it's shown, in-universe, that Emp is a YaoiFangirl who reads a lot of doujinshi and fanfic. She even slashes her teammates.
