    Power Couples

    Power Couples

    It’s Valentine’s Day and love in the air. So, it makes sense to look at some of comics most beloved and enduring couples. These pairs have had their share of ups and downs. In fact, many of the couples have survived and stayed together despite insurmountable odds. As a result, these relationships have provided us with decades of compelling (albeit, sometimes non-traditional) love stories.

    5 Comic Couples That Have Managed to Make it Work (Mostly)

    Kitty Pryde and Colossus

    Kitty Pryde & Colossus – The X-Men have never had great luck with romantic relationships. However, the romance between the iron-skinned Colossus and the phasing Kitty Pryde has often been one of the sweeter, more affectionate stories in the occasionally dark and bleak X-Universe.

    Aquaman and Mera

    Aquaman & Mera – Talk about opposites attracting. Mera comes from a culture of Atlanteans who seek Aquaman’s destruction. In fact, they initially met when she was sent to kill him. Instead, she ended up falling in love with him. If a relationship can weather a few assassination attempts, you can bet they’re in it for the long haul.

    Green Arrow and Black Canary

    Green Arrow & Black Canary – Ask any comics fan and they’ll tell you these two belong together. One of the biggest complaints of the DC New 52 relaunch was the elimination of this relationship. Fan demand lead to the two being reunited in the recent DC Rebirth event. The relationship between Green Arrow and Black Canary is one of the most romantic stories in the modern DC universe.

    Batman and Catwoman

    Batman & Catwoman – This is one of the more on again/off again couples in comics. Catwoman is the one person who can make a loner vigilante like Batman think about actually letting love in his life. Their separate paths in life mean that hopes for anything long term are probably impossible. But there is a beauty in their tragic love affair.

    Superman and Lois Lane

    Superman & Lois Lane – They are comics most enduring couple. It takes a spectacular woman to get Superman to settle down and start a family. And the feisty and intelligent Lois Lane is just that woman. These two are basically an institution at DC and have consistently found their way back to each other for almost 80 years.

    Eartha Kitt, Television’s Catwoman, Bids Adieu

    Eartha Kitt, who starred as Catwoman during the 1967-68 season of the television version of Batman, died December 25 following a long struggle with colon cancer. The fabulous singer-actress was 81.

    Kitt was born on a cotton farm in 1927 and was raised by various individuals–including, she claimed, an abusive, neglectful family–before reuniting with her birth mother in New York City. There, she rose above her traumatic early life and made her debut as a member of the Katherine Dunham Company, the first African American modern dance company. She was also well-known as a cabaret singer, with hits such as Let’s Do It, Champagne Taste, C’est si bon, and Santa Baby.

    Kitt thrived as an actress throughout her lifetime, starring in films such as the Orson Welles-directed Dr. Faustus, and The Mark of the Hawk, co-starring Sidney Poitier. She went on to star on Broadway in Timbuktu!, among others.  Although she courted her fair share of controversy and even left the United States for Europe for a time after inciting a national furor by voicing anti-Vietnam sentiments during a visit to the White House, Kitt always emerged triumphant, winning new generations of fans with her vocal performances in Disney’s Jungle Book: Mowgli’s Story and The Emperor’s New Groove.

    For comic book fans, however, the perennial image of Ms. Kitt is her in full Catwoman regalia in the third season of TV’s Batman. Her distinctive, purring voice and lithe figure helped her achieve the seemingly impossible–step into the shoes of the much-admired Julie Newmar–as she made the role of Catwoman her own. She will be missed.
