Total Recall: The 10 Best Superhero Hookups

Because caped crusaders need love, too.

by |

No doubt Hellboy and Liz Sherman turn heads while playing frolf at the park, or at IKEA when looking for mid-priced dressers. Superheroes may be unusual, but, hey, even the unusual need relationships. And these two have picked the best summer for their blockbuster love: between the rekindled senior romance of Indy and Marion, the sight of Israeli and Palestinian stylists knocking combs, and the sweet purity of Wall-E and EVE, it's been a long season of unusual relationships. Perfect for superheroes in love. In tribute to Hellboy II: The Golden Army, here's Rotten Tomatoes' list of the most memorable superhero hookups done in Movieopolis.

Warning: NSFW -- language.

10. Bluntman and Chronic
As seen in: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)

Like their "real-life" counterparts Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith), these superhero buddies live by their own version of the force: a shared love for Mary Jane. Wielding their bluntsabers side by side, Bluntman and his loyal sidekick Chronic spring from the pages of Banky and Holden's comic in Kevin Smith's Chasing Amy, then get the Hollywood treatment in their film-within-a-film in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. With A-list schmucks Jason Biggs and James Van Der Beek set to ruin the duo's good name, Jay and Silent Bob arrive just in time to film a pivotal fight against the evil Cocknocker (Mark Hamill) with a cry of "Snootchie bootchies!" Just remember, they're not gay; they're (super) hetero life partners. Man love can be a beautiful thing.

9. Green Ranger and Pink Ranger
As seen in: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995)

The kids who didn't have MTV were a desperate lot. Unable to quote neither Beavis nor Butthead during school lunch, they would take up any passing interest -- pogs, video games, even those Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. But amidst the cheesy costumes and dollar-store pyrotechnics was the show's consistent romance between Tommy, the Green Ranger, and Kimberley, the Pink Ranger. For afternoon programming, the back-and-forth between the two was unusually compelling. (One episode commercial even teased the idea of marriage. Wild!) And in 1995, the two were lifted, along with the other Rangers, into a big-budget, effects-laden theatrical movie. Uh, not that I was there opening day or anything.
