Fighting crime can be time consuming, and not having time is one of the main problems when it comes to dating. Obviously, we talk about fictional characters, Superheroes, and they always need a romantic interest to make them more interesting, but the appeal of the relationship between comrades sometimes generates hard to avoid love triangles.

If such disputes are already common among real people, they are also in the history of superhero comics ... an area where any mistake can be paid expensively, and they could move from being "friends" linked by a common interest (save the world from the villains), to be confronted by a matter of skirts.

Kyle and Jade long maintained a relationship, which was fine until suddenly appeared his ex, Donna Troy, who was also known as Wonder Women's successor and with whom lantern was still in love.

      I should agree with you, Lois and clark are among the best known fictional couples, and actually, their relationship was based for a long time in a "love triangle" considering Lois didn't know about's Clark Kent alter ego. I think they got married in 1996.

      For me, the relationship between Clark Kent the mild mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper and colleague Lois Lane has been etched indelibly in my mind since childhood. Although the Superman movies provided good entertainment value they didn't 'live up' to the T.V. series of the 1950's albeit ill fated to survive only a few seasons. Two actresses portrayed the original Lois Lane namely Noelle Neal and Phyllis Coates both quite effectively even though i think Ms Coates was a more formidable opponent in dealing with adversaries. I'd like to think Lois eventually got Clark in the end!
