Superhumans also experience challenges. Marvel movie heroes struggle with love and quarrel with their siblings, much like non-magical humans do. Their interpersonal interactions reveal their true selves and serve to restrain their humanity (or empathy, if they are gods). You need to have some kind of emotional intelligence when you’re the only thing keeping the Earth from potentially destroying itself. Naturally, some combinations are more powerful than others.

While Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter’s romance was hinted at from the moment they first appeared in the MCU, other Marvel characters were grouped together with no apparent relationship. Yes, we are referring to Natasha Romanoff and Bruce Banner. It’s time to evaluate our favorite characters because Marvel’s upcoming phase will feature more romances, bromances, and other groupings.

1. Peter Parker and Michelle “MJ” Jones (Tom Holland and Zendaya Coleman)

MJ. He tries to confess his affection for her in Far From Home until the very end when MJ says she is aware of his true identity. Parker and MJ start dating after Parker returns to New York and defeats Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).

2. Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter (Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell)

With this romance, the first Avenger won our hearts. Peggy Carter, a S.H.I.E.L.D. Secret Agent had faith in him throughout his transition from a scrawny everyday Joe to a jacked superhero. By the time his origin story was over, Steve had sacrificed himself by flying into the ocean and leaving Peggy behind.

3. Tony Stark and Pepper Potts (Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow)

Playboy, multi-billionaire, brilliant, and charitable. The last person you’d expect him to end up with is his CEO and formidable assistant Pepper Potts, who is constantly busy yet still finds time to control Tony.
