Does Jean Loring really count? Isn't this trope just "A is a hero, B is a villain, they meet and form some sort of relationship"?

Jean Loring has a relationship with a hero, then goes nuts, then becomes a villain. And she has no further relationship with Ray Palmer upon becoming evil. It's the steps of the trope in reverse order. And I don't think that's how an Inverted Trope works.

I'd say the order's not really important, so it's a straight example, not an inversion.

The trope is a relationship between a hero and a villain. If she wasn't a villain when they were dating, and they broke up before she became a villain, it doesn't count.

So, I have seen many tropes being renamed to get rid of references to specific characters (The Daria to Snark Knight, for example). Might I suggest renaming this one to "Love Thy Enemy"?
