Most Iconic DC Couple?

I’ve been debating with my friend about tho the most iconic dc “couple” is, and I put quotunquotes around couple because they don’t necessarily have to be married, dating, or have slept together, they just have to like each each other. My personal opinion is dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon, the two of them are just so star crossed. They each have had other flames, but they just keep coming back to each other. My friend argued Barry Allen and Iris West. But what do you all think?

Historically, Dick and Barbara didn’t really exist as a couple until AFTER her first tenure as Batgirl. It was retrofitted into continuity during the Oracle years.

For the most iconic DC couple, I’d have to say Superman and Lois Lane. You could never read a single comic book in your life and still know about their relationship.

If non-love interest couples count.

I’d say Green Lantern (Hal) & Green Arrow. They play so well off each other.

JL/JLU Animated Diana and Shiera. “We’re like oil and vinegar, we go together but we don’t mix”

As for a “love interest” couple, I think Oliver & Dinah are the most iconic. Lois rebuffed Clark for sooooo long, I just can’t get behind them as a truly iconic couple.

Dinah & Ollie are the true soulmates of DC. The “flaws” other the other are often infuriating, but, they always work things out.

1.Clark and Lois
2. Joker and Harley
3. Swamp Thing and Abby Arcane
4. Oliver Quuen and Dinah Lance
5. Arthur and Mera

However my favorite dynamic to read is Oliver and Dinah followed by Arthur and Mera. Oliver and Dinah tend to have some pretty witty banter.

If we’re going for iconic, I think my vote would have to go to Clark and Lois. They’ve been a cornerstone couple for decades and I adore seeing how they’ve evolved over the years. :slight_smile:

Iconic in general: Superman and Lois Lane.

Iconic for me: Batman and Catwoman.

Iconic is Superman & Lois Lane, but my favourite couple in the DCU is Wally West and Linda Park (pre-Flashpoint, obviously).

Lois and Clark. Are they my favorite? No. But are they the most iconic? Yes.

Green Arrow and Black Canary could have given them a run for their money if every time they made a live action Green Arrow, they actually paired them up. Lois and Clark have just been much more prominent as a couple in mainstream media for so long, it’s hard for anyone to be more iconic. Batman and Catwoman come close.

For iconic, I’d have to agree with others and say Lois/Clark, followed by Batman/Catwoman. Neither are my favorite couple (that’s Dick/Babs), but they’re probably the most well known and long running in pop culture.

I don’t know who people justify Lois & Clark. For 40+ years, she did nothing but shoo Clark away.

One freakin show where they are a couple and their icons. Puhleez.

Clark needs to divorce her. Like really nasty, spiteful, only talk to my lawyer, divorce.

Let her get the cold shoulder from Clark for the next 40 years.

Lois and Clark are the only answer. They are the only couple that the general public knows.
