* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica has rarely had a long-lasting relationship since at least the GoldenAge. In the 1980s he was with Bernie Rosenthal long enough to become officially engaged to her; however she was eventually put on a bus. In the film ''WesternAnimation/NextAvengersHeroesOfTomorrow'' [[spoiler:it is revealed he married Black Widow and had a son]]

As such, superheroes afflicted with this trope are never, under ''any'' circumstances, allowed to settle down with anyone. ([[AlternateUniverse At least, not in the main canon]]). Unlike the CelibateHero, they may actually date, but expect them to say "ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies," and other excuses of varying plausibility. If they actually do show signs of planning to settle down with someone, expect the CartwrightCurse to rear its ugly head, resulting in the love interest getting killed off, PutOnABus or otherwise removed from the hero's life before story's end or somewhere further down the line.

* Franchise/WonderWoman and Steve Trevor dated steadily from the GoldenAge until the 70's. He then spent the next 15 years getting killed or PutOnABus, and then [[TheBusCameBack brought back,]] repeatedly. After the [[CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Crisis,]] George Perez retconned away their relationship completely and married Steve off to supporting castmember Etta Candy.

* During the original run of ''Series/DoctorWho'', this trope generally applied to the Doctor (and to most of the other characters too, due to Creator/TheBBC's policy of [[NoHuggingNoKissing "no hanky-panky in the TARDIS]]).
