** To arguably the same level, DC also has [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batman and Catwoman]]. Batman has more than a few love interests, but besides Talia, none have came close to Catwoman in popularity or how long they've lasted. While they've only ever briefly been together properly, the two are probably one of the most famous superhero couples (and the most well known [[DatingCatwoman Superhero/Supervillain couple]]), possibly even more beloved than the above two thanks to the lack of any DamselScrappy accusations.

No, it isn't [[IncestIsRelative 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.

* [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent Both Marvel and DC have one]], in the form of [[Franchise/SpiderMan Peter Parker/Mary Jane]] and [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Clark Kent/Lois Lane]] respectfully. Both couples took a ''very'' long time to hook up in the comics themselves, have had other love interests who've never been quite as popular (though, Peter and Gwen Stacy is also rather popular, but avoid becoming this due to Gwen being largely obscure to non-comic fans until recent years), and are still largely the most well-known couples in the superhero genre. DC even based [[Series/LoisAndClark an entire show]] based around their couple, and their later show ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' built them up similarly (despite originally putting Clark together with [[CreatorsPet Lana Lang]], and strong fandom love for CanonImmigrant Chloe Sullivan), while most Spider-Man adaptations frequently just use Mary Jane as his love interest.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/{{Nintendo}} has two: [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario/Princess Peach]] and [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link/Princess Zelda]]. From the beginning of their franchises, both couples remain strong and are widely considered to be the gold standard by which all video game relationships are measured. Although Mario and Link have been teased with other love interests, none of them are nearly as popular as Peach and Zelda; the only credible rival to Link/Zelda is Link/Midna but but has the disadvantage of appearing in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess only one game]] that feels more like an exception, rather than a norm. Mario and Peach generally enjoy a good relationship both in the core games and the spin-offs, while ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' had Link and Zelda's evolved relationship as one of its main draws.

** Another gay super couple from Hollyoaks (its a bit of a series staple by this point) would be Ste and Brendan, to the point that for a long time '[[POrtmanteauCoupleName Stendan]]' and 'Hollyoaks' were nearly synonymous to viewers. Slightly a subversion, in the sense that their relationship was always dysfunctional, they have broken up multiple times and shortly after they were reunited and got things (mostly) sorted out emotionally, Brendan left the show and is unlikely to return.
