* DC have another one in the live action adaptation ''Series/TheFlash2014'' - Barry and Iris. Like in the comics, Barry has other love interests, as does Iris on the show, but neither the show nor its creators have ever denied that they are destined to be together. They become the OfficialCouple near the end of season 2, and many consider their relationship to be the emotional centre of the series. Their love also happens to span at least three timelines and two earths. Supercouple, indeed.

* Berenice "Bernie" Wolfe and Serena Campbell of ''Series/HolbyCity'', who are most notable for spectacularly averting NobodyOverFiftyIsGay and for becoming easily the most popular pairing in the current era of the show -- including drawing in many, ''many'' queer women who [[JustHereForGodzilla are just watching for]] [[PortmanteauCoupleName Berena]].

No, it isn't [[KissingCousins what would happen if Superman and Supergirl hooked up]]. The supercouple describes those pairings which intrigues and fascinates the public on an intense and obsessive level. According to TheOtherWiki the term was coined in the 1980s when interest in the pairing of Luke and Laura from ''Series/GeneralHospital'' garnered so much attention that their wedding was watched by 30 million viewers, a figure which is still the highest audience for a daytime SoapOpera in the U.S.A. This was all despite the fact that their romance began when Luke raped Laura, who was married to another man at the time.

After a lull in the late 80's and early 90's a resurgence of the formula began to gain steam for a new generation in the mid 90's and early 00's, with the likes of ''Series/TheYoungAndTheRestless'' Nick and Sharon, JT and Coleen, ''DaysOfOurLives'' Lucas and Sami, Shawn and Belle, Austin and Carrie, ''AllMyChildren'' Mateo and Haley, Edmund and Maria, Leo and Greenlee, Bianca and Maggie, ''GeneralHospital'' Sonny and Brenda, Lucky and Elizabeth, Patrick and Robin and so on. Many articles spoke of this new breath of life in the formula as riveting as well as the daring new directions some couples went, Bianca and Maggie being the first Same-Sex Supercouple ever conceived for example.
