DC Universe: Five best superhero couples
DC comics has an intricate universe filled to the brim with superheroes and riveting villains, which is only rivaled by the comic behemoths, Marvel.
It is unsurprising that many of these superheroes would eventually go on to become couples, over several years in comics, having fought many a good war side by side.
Here, we bring you, the five best superhero couples in DC.
Nightwing and Oracle: A relationship born out of familiarity
They have grown up knowing each other and theirs is a love born out of familiarity.
What is best about this couple is the balance they bring into the relationship, with Nightwing always wearing his heart on his sleeve and Oracle being the calculating one.
Talk about opposites attracting!
Mister Miracle and Big Barda: Love is worth fighting for
Mister Miracle and Big Barda's love story is one of struggle and sweetness.
The former was a slave under Darkseid while the latter was one of the fiercest warriors.
Having found each other, they devised a plan to escape from Apokolips.
Their love story is a touching tale of how couples struggle and fight each day to protect the thing they cherish the most.
Black Canary and Green Arrow: The world is their oyster
Black Canary and Green Arrow should not work as a couple. They are both obnoxious and forceful people.
However, when they come together, magic happens, as this DC couple becomes a wrecking ball of power and romance.
Green Arrow thinks Black Canary can do no wrong while Canary thinks only about the world of Green Arrow but is not afraid to correct his mistakes.
Aquaman and Mera: Meet the royal couple who ruled Atlantis
It is an age-old saying that every king needs a queen and if the queen is a warrior princess like Mera, then it is especially true.
Mera was initially a spy sent to report on Arthur Curry. However, the two fell in love and scripted one of DC's most iconic love stories.
Aquaman and Mera have ruled Atlantis together and rebuilt it several times.
Batman and Catwoman: Two lost souls swimming in a fishbowl
Batman and Catwoman are both broken in their own ways.
Perhaps that is what makes their love even more special and touching.
While in the comics, the engagement ended in disaster, we get a feeling the two will keep circling each other.
Since they understand one other's pain and can fix it, Batman and Catwoman are easily one of the best couples in DC.
