List of supercouples

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from List of fictional supercouples)
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of supercouples, fictional couples who have been titled supercouples by the media, usually with the addition of substantial fan support; they may have been referred to as power couples or dynamic duos, and are often defined by a standard set of criteria or circumstances; these circumstances include mania (significant press and media attention being placed on the couple, having to do with charm rather than negativity), the couple being labeled a supercouple by valid sources, the couple having notably impacted popular culture (such as by mania or by becoming a de facto symbol for its genre), and having been listed as an all-time top romance. Each of these examples have been identified by scholars, critics and press as defining supercouples.[1][2][3][4]

Unfortunately, BAM fans, Maggie appears to have left the building. Try though she might, AMC's Maggie can't seem to convince her ex, Bianca, that her cheating days are over. After begging for forgiveness and pitching in at Fusion, Mags makes her lonely exit on Wednesday, February 7. Is this the end for AMC's Sapphic supercouple? "Bianca still loves her," headwriter Megan McTavish assures the audience. "And yet, at the same time, I don't think it's a given that you necessarily forgive the person who cheated on you. So Maggie has an uphill climb." Ms. Stone's ambiguous exit leaves viewers wondering whether she'll return, yet an AMC rep says nothing is planned at this time.

(54) Every soap has its reigning couples that ache to be together and manage to do so in spite of everything. The word "supercouple" was minted for this. Buffy and Angel are a supercouple, a couple that has an intense chemistry on screen and whose union is a bona fide challenge to the world. Angel is a version of the boy "from the wrong side of the track" who tries to better himself and seeks redemption through the love of the woman he loves (like Luke on General Hospital or Patch on Days of our lives). Lovers face dangers together and this binds them. But it's in the modes in which love between Buffy and Angel is portrayed that the series follows soap's style, first and foremost for the melodramatic tone, as we said before, but for other elements too.
