In the interest of the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday, we sought a few different listings of favorite superhero love interests. Although they mainly focused on the attractiveness of the actresses portraying them, some of them are heroines or villainesses in their own right. In The 25 Hottest Love Interests from Superhero Movies and TV from Ranker.com, we find:
Batgirl – played on TV by Yvonne Craig and in the movie Batman & Robin by Alicia Silverstone.
Catwoman – played on TV by Eartha Kitt, and in film by Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry and soon by Anne Hathaway in Dark Knight Rises.
But they also mention Daredevil’s Elektra and Sue Storm from Fantastic Four as well as Mary from Hancock.
BullzEye.com shared a very funny locker room style roundtable commentary including many of the women included on Ranker’s list, but also from X-Men: Jean Grey (played by Famke Janssen) in that love triangle with Cyclops and Wolverine, and Rogue (played by Anna Paquin) who spent some time as Iceman’s significant other.
Unfortunately, many of the love interests just dress like normal women. But for Valentine’s Day, you can get some couple’s style superhero costumes. For example aside from the ones mentioned above, you could try Superman and Supergirl, Spiderman and Spidergirl, Captain America and Ms. Captain America, Wolverine and Female Wolverine, Robin and Girl Robin, or Iron Man and Black Widow. Unfortunately, we only have the Pink Power Ranger in adult sizes, but if you want to have the blue, red or black costume created, we can do custom costume for you! In fact we can create any costume for you, for any of the characters mentioned here, elsewhere or from your imagination.
Of course, the listings we used left out female super heroines like Wonder Woman, but you could do some Justice League role playing and call it Fan Fiction!
