So I have two favorite cannon romances and they both are from The Legion of Super-Heroes.




First up is Bouncing Boy and Triplicate Girl (Duo Damsel/Duplicate Damsel. The reason is because I though it was awesome. Bouncing Boy was the chubby kid who scored the hottie. And they worked. I hated the version that dated the three guys at once.





Next is Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl. I don't know why I like it. I just do.

Despite being retconned I liked Violet/Lightning Lass.

Looks it. They're certainly not together in current continuity, and Ayla has been shown to be with, or have recently broken up with, Timber Wolf (who she was with before the 5 year jump)...and quite a bit of other stuff from even earlier than that has been retconned, so...

Chuck/Lu and Dawnie/Wildfire have also been broken up, apparently, but the latter is explicitly broken up, and gods only know what's going on with Chuck at all. Current Legion continuity is CRUEL to my favourite 'ships.

As far as I can tell it was canon for just 'original' Legion and the first reboot introducing Valor. Other versions, no. *sigh*

Yep, as of Zero Hour. That's when we lost Element Lad/Sean (formerly Shvaughn) Erin, too.

Oh, and Winath stopped being nudist then, IIRC. These are all sad things.

Yay Vayla! I do hope those two get together in the current incarnation of the Legion.

I also like Threeboot/Prime Brainy and Nura. Especially since the majority of the courtship occurred in Brainy's head.

I was (and am) too old school to get much out of that pairing. :/

Also, I hear some fans raised holy Hell about Thom being Black, and I'm kind of glad I wasn't around for the uproar if it was true. I don't think it shows my fandom in a really good light.

i dont think it was rectconned... its still the same legion, but Ayla always liked both Timber wolf and Vi, Ayla was Bi, so i think unless they officially/explicitly stated she and Vi, are both straight, she just chose TW over SV

but i know what you mean... i want gay Invisible Kid/Chemical King :( isnt Chem, alivie now? he was in teh SB Adventure story line wasnt he?

Unless they explicitly say Ayla/Vi happened, I'm assuming it was retconned.

Not being negative, but I don't want to get my hopes up too. *lol*

The Legion has so many awesome 'ships.

GarthXImra, ChuckXLu, JeckieXVal, DawnstarXWildfire, ViXAyla (which interestingly lead to an awesome 'Elseworlds' annual), GimXYera... Element LadXShvaughn/Sean would have been awesome if there weren't so many levels of fail in the reveal of Sean.

IIRC The Bierbaums introduced the retconned concept that Triplicate Girl's bodies had had different personalities and had each been attracted to different guys which made her affection for Chuck a little on the diffused side, and one of them may have had an affair. Must see if I can dig out the LSH RPG handbook which covered it, there's a nice excerpt from Luorno's journal which tries to convey the sense of loss that she felt.

These two pairings. YES! Thanks to the Legion animated series, I became a Bouncing Boy fan and hey, if big man can get the hot girl, I'm all for it. It's a known fact, ladies love big man. :D

Legion has a lot of great romances and I actually like that some of them span several universes to the point where a writer tries to screw it up - in the case of Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad for instance i.e. Proty being Garth all along (which Levitz has seemingly ignored now), Archie Legion Imra mind-controlling a comatose Cosmic Boy into being her boyfriend almost marrying her, Shooter having Threebot Imra having a quickie in the closet with Ultra Boy (later quickly retconned into only being on a "mental plane" despite the fact she was caught naked) because she was depressed and insecure and LL wasn't around, etc. I dunno like couples that are actually happy and work at being so.

I could live with some lack of happiness if it wasn't for the continued popularity of creepy non-con overtones.

As to the non-con business with SG/CB, I'm torn between wanting Levitz to explain that at some point Imra relented, undid the mindwipe, and dealt with the consequences-- vs. NEVER wanting to have to think about the whole thing ever again.

:( Gah.

In fairness, the ZH Imra and Comatosmic Boy manipulation was entirely unintentional, Imra didn't realise she was doing it until it was pointed out to her.

The recent mindwipe case has much more unpleasant implications.

I know little about Legion romances, but I agree, BB and TG/DD are adorable together. Always nice to see a pairing where at least one side is not the typical movie star type.

The Legion has some truly great pairings, which just takes the space kids soap opera to glorious heights. My LSH OTP though has to be Jo/Tinya. Damn I love them, no matter what crazy 'boot we're on.

Interesting that Thom/Nura weren't mentioned. Thom was so needy in the original run.

I'm leaning towards Val/Jeckie as my favorite. Two ultracompetent, constantly reliable characters in an ongoing relationship. Of course it was doomed.
