Top 25 Fictional Couples: Part 1.

Because Valentine's Day is coming up tomorrow, here is part 1 of the Fictional Couples list as requested by you. The criteria is that the characters are in a romantic relationship, and the same character can be listed more than once if said character had more than one relationship, simple as that. Also this is including all forms of media, including movies, comic books, video games, ect. Since guys like myself do not watch "romance" movies often, the list will include mostly couples from comic book films and other action, sci-fi and suspense films. I am ranking them by how much I enjoy the characters and their chemistry, which usually results in humorous banter. Also, not every couple have a "Happily Ever After" ending, some are tragic, others are very conflicted and even abusive. For the list, I have a few spoiler warning in spots, but it is mostly spoiler free.

At Number 25: Neo and Trinity
While the actors never had much chemistry, the "Trinity Help" scene was awesome and as a Matrix fan I had to include them on the list. 

At Number 24: Superboy and Megan (Mss. Marian)
In the Young Justice series, Superboy and Megan was the most developed and the characters were very likable. I still hate it that they were split-up in the Young Justice: Invasion series with the five year jump.

At Number 23: James Bond and Vesper
Vesper is the only "Bond Girl" to have a believable relationship with Bond and easily the best of the Bond series. Although I would have to spoil Casino Royale to tell why I liked Bond and Vesper.

At Number 22: Hank (Ant-Man) and Janet (Wasp)
Unlike many of the other couples on this list, Hank and Janet Pym have had many problems. If you thought Tony Stark is a jerk, Hank Pym is in a whole other level of jerkdom. While he and Janet started out as a nice couple, it later turned violent. Despite this, they were one of the first couples in comics to take such a dark turn. Hank Pym (aka Ant-Man, Giant Man, Yellowjacket ect.) and Janet Dye (Wasp) are both Avengers and there will be an Ant-Man film coming out in 2015 after The Avengers 2.

At Number 21: Reed (Mr. Fantastic) and Sue (Invisible Woman)
Reed and Sue Richards, core members of the Fantastic Four. While the film adaptation of the characters was done terribly, they are still one of the best couples in comics.

At Number 20: Batman and Catwoman or Talia Al Ghul
I could not decide between Batman and Catwoman or Batman and Talia Al Ghul, so I decided to include them both on the list. Although Bruce Wayne even married Talia in the comics, Catwoman is a better more likable match for the Caped Crusader.

At Number 19: Aragorn and Awren
Although Aragorn and Awren's relationship was given an unnecessary focus compared to the the books, it nevertheless worked well in the film. 

At Number 18: Bruce Wayne and Andrea Beaumont
Out of all Bruce Wayne's romantic interests, Andrea Beaumont from Batman: Mask of the Phantasm movie was easily my favorite. She was original to the film and was never in the comics but in her short role made a big impression on me. 

At Number 17: Bruce (The Hulk) and Betty
Betty is the only one who can calm the beast within Banner. However, if I were to say more, it would spoil The Incredible Hulk movie.

At Number 16: Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger
After working together for nearly over the eleven years in the eight Harry Potter films, had a belivable relationship throughout the film series. They were very likable and fun characters to watch grow throughout the movies.

At Number 15: Superman and Lois
Superman and Lois Lane, the original super-couple. How could one make a couples list and not include Superman and Lois? Hopefully in the up-coming Man of Steel, there will another great paring of actors. However, due the age difference (9 years) between Henry Cavill (Superman) and Amy Adams (Lois), it could become awkward.

At Number 14: Cobb and Mal (Inception)
Cobb and Mal are the definition of a troubled relationship. Not only did Mal *Inception Spoilers* kill herself because Cobb made her believe she was still dreaming, she haunts his subconscious and nearly ruins the mission or did she succeed? * Inception Horn Music*  *End of Spoilers*  

At Number 13: Thor and Jane
While some may dislike Thor and Jane as a couple, I thought they were great together in the recent Thor film, comics and Avengers TV series.

What do you think of the list so far? Please comment below and check back here tomorrow for the Valentine's Day Part 2 of this list.

  1. Love me some Trinity and Neo! I did like Superboy and Megan up until a point where her character completely changed, and kind of lost the plot a little bit.

  2. I like Thor. He's a cute blonde! And I love cute blonde guys!!

  3. Great list! :D I also like Rom/Hermione, probably one of my favorites :)
    I liked Thor and Jane too :) Not sure why people didn't like it.
    And the one in Inception was good and sad- very well done :)

  4. Alright for Thor and Jane. We just watche The Incedible Hulk and I also liked Banner and Betty together. And Cobb and Mal just make for a tragic story, I'm glad they made it onto your list. I'm not familiar with many of the other couples, but that's okay! :)


  5. Great list! I like all of them, though probably my favorite...well, hmm...

    Alright, I'm not sure on that.

    I liked Thor/Jane too, but I'm still looking forward to (hopefully) seeing Thor/Sif somewhere in the movieverse.

    Happy Valentines!


  6. @Cherokee: I agree, they really screwed up Megan's character recently. Too bad Young Justice is canceled......

    @HippieGirl21: LOL, Thanks for the comment!

    @Shena Tokala: Thank you! :D Still do not understand either, they were great together. Glad you liked the Cobb and Mal pick. :) Wasn't sure what people would think.

    @Jamie: Good, glad you liked them in the Hulk. What did you think of the film? Glad you liked that pick, maybe I should have put them higher on the list. :)

    @Vincent: Thanks Vincent.

    @Alexandra Lanc: Thank you! Haha, I like your answer.

    I do as well since he almost married her in the comics! (I think he actually did in one of the universes) I have heard rumors about it though, but I doubt it since Sif's character was not given much development in the first movie. But we can hope.

    Happy Valentines to you too!


  7. Nice list!!! :) The only one similar to my top ten list was Ronmione though :P I like Aragorn and Arwen too :)

  8. @Solace Utara: Thanks! :) Maybe my part 2 is closer to your list, I just posted it. :)
