Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'': In the first movie, Star-Lord meets and is smitten by Gamora, evidenced by how he was willing to give his mask to keep her alive while exposed to the vacuum of space. In ''Film/{{GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2}}'', which is six months later in-universe, Peter keeps mentioning the "unspoken thing" between them, citing ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' and Sam & Diane as an example. Gamora, obviously, doesn't have any idea what ''Cheers'' is.

Then, when it looked like they were finally right for getting together officially, Kara Zor-El was killed off in the ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''.
