Top 10 Best Superhero Couples In The MCU: The Marvel Cinematic Universe or now commonly called The MCU has become a big part of all of our lives. When most of us sat in theaters all around the world to watch Iron Man for the first time, we didn’t realize that we were looking at the birth of an entire universe with enough content so that we would never get tired of it.
Many of us have also made it our priority to stay up to date with all things marvel, be it watching every episode that comes out or watching all the movies in the theaters the first day and the first show so that no one can ruin things for us.
All of us have our favorite things in the MCU, be it our favorite moment, our favorite superhero, or our favorite superpower. We have followed these characters from the beginning and have experienced their journey with them. And in that journey, they have had up’s, down’s, wins, losses, love and heartbreak. So a question arose in our mind, with all these couples, who are the best superhero couples in the MCU.
After much debate and re-watching a lot of movies, here is a list of the best superhero couples in the MCU.

Top 10 Best Superhero Couples In The MCU
10. Natasha Romanoff and Bruce Banner (Black Widow and The Hulk)
At number ten we have Black Widow and The Hulk. Though they are never officially dating and are not a true superhero couple in the MCU. But, they have a lot of moments together throughout the Avenger’s movies and their love for each other could not be more apparent. Black Widow calms down The Hulk and turns him back to Bruce Banner and Bruce accepts Natasha Romanoff and who she has become. Their romance though tender is never truly realized. But they still count as a superhero couple in the MCU in all of our hearts.
9. T’Challa and Nakia ( Black Panther and The Wakandan Warrior)
At number nine we have Black Panther and Nakia. The power couple from Wakanda, a true superhero couple in the MCU. They have their ups and down’s throughout the story and most of the time they watch each other back’s when out on missions. T’Challa depends on Nakia both as a friend and as a partner.
We can clearly see that they still care a lot for one another even with their turbulent past. Their story ends on a good note as T’Challa understand Nakia’s point of view and together they open Wakanda to the rest of the world.
But unfortunately, since then the actor Chadwick Boseman who played Black Panther had passed away and rumors suggest than Marvel won’t replace him as Black Panther to pay their respect to the great actor and his dedication to his role. So we hope for the best for the people involved in Black Panther and wish them the best as they take on new projects in the MCU.

8. Thor Odinson and Jane Foster (Thor and The Mighty Thor)
At number eight we have Thor and Jane Foster. They were one of the original superhero couples introduced in the MCU. Since then Thor has been on many adventures and their relationship seems distant at the best of times, but we can say for sure that they care for each other.
And with the future release of Thor: Love and Thunder, we know that Jane Foster will take on the mantle of Thor herself and become The Might Thor, Goddess of Thunder. So we will see what happens to their relationship in detail and we hope for the best because they do make an adorable superhero couple.
7. Dr. Strange and Christine Palmer (Dr. Strange and Dr. Palmer)
At number seven we have Dr. Strange and Dr. Palmer. The superhero couple in the MCU with the most doctorates. Though they have been broken up for some time now and they lead separate lives, they still love each other. LOOK AWAY, SPOILERS ARE INCOMING. In the very recent movie, Dr. Strange:
In The Multiverse of Madness, we see that Dr. Palmer has since decided to move on with her life and we see her get married but Dr. Strange has kept our hopes for the couple alive by stating that he loves her in every universe. A truly love-filled statement, making certain that they can’t yet be removed from the list of the best superhero couples in the MCU.
6. Peter Quill and Gamora (Star Lord and Gamora)
At number six we have Star-Lord and Gamora. The funniest superhero couple in the MCU. They complement each other very well, with Peter and his goofy nature bouncing right off Gamora’s stoic front, and in turn they make us all laugh. They have great chemistry and thus make for a great superhero couple. They too will be featured in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, we hope them the best and can’t wait to see how the funniest superhero couple in the MCU fairs in the future.
5. Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne (Ant-Man and The Wasp)
At number five we have Ant-Man and The Wasp. The superhero couple in the MCU with the best heists. Sparks have been present between them since the beginning, more in Scott’s eyes rather than Hope’s, but she warms up to him soon enough. They are a great duo and we hope that they stay together till the end.
Last we saw of them, they were enjoying a cozy life with each other and Scott’s daughter, Cassie. They will be featured in upcoming movies in the MCU and we can wait to see how many awesome heists this superhero couple can show us.
4. Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter (Captain America and Agent Peggy Carter)
At number four we have Captain America and Agent Peggy Carter. The superhero couple in the MCU is out of time. There is definitely a romantic interest between them and Steve Rogers has cared for no one else except Peggy Carter. His mind is fixed on her throughout his life and that is very romantic. We finally see them together at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
They live out a full life together with no regrets and we say goodbye to a character we have seen and cared for since the inception of the MCU. Making them a superhero couple in the MCU marked in history, together forever.
3. Tony Stark and Pepper Potts (Iron Man and Pepper Potts)
At number three we have Iron Man and Pepper Potts. They are the superhero couple in the MCU that has been with us, since the inception of the MCU. They have had some break-ups in the middle of their relationship but they always come back together. We even see Pepper Potts take on the mantle of an Iron Man suit in order to come and fight with Tony against Thanos.
They get married and settle down and even have a daughter together. While we may have hoped that they stay together forever, Tony sacrifices himself to save the MCU. But, they have already established themself as a major superhero couple in the MCU.
2. Wanda Maximoff and Vision (Scarlett Witch and Vision)
At number two we have The Scarlett Witch and Vision. The tragic superhero couple in the MCU. Their relationship was budding and they enjoyed a life together, but unfortunately, Vision is killed by Thanos. This leads Wanda to create her own reality where she still enjoys her life with Vision and they are still together.
A sad story that made us cry alongside her when we finally has to snap out of that reality. But we are still not clear on their future and hope that this superhero couple returns to us.
1. Peter Parker and Michelle Jones (Spider-Man and MJ)
At number one we have Spider-Man and MJ. The youngest superhero couple in the MCU. They are great together and complete each other. MJ grounds Peter and makes sure that he is focused and level-headed. We see some sparks between them in the first movie, Spider-Man:
Homecoming and they finally get together at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. But unfortunately, as all good things come to an end, we see that MJ has forgotten Peter at the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home. There are more movies scheduled in the future for Spider-Man and we hope to see this superhero couple together again.
The MCU has become an integral part of our culture and our lives. Since almost all of us have been together and shared this journey with each other we have come to appreciate this universe a lot. Though sometimes our ideas and points of view may differ, I hope to see all of you, right beside me in the movie theatres, coming to enjoy and experience the future of this universe.
