30 Days of Scans Day 28 - Favorite Canonical Romance

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.

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.

Heh, the Legion is a shipper's candy store.

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

Awww! See, this is why I need to get into Legion of Superheroes! Love to see my big guys getting a little love (or, obviously, a lot of love).

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 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.

I am a devout follower of the first Legion romance, and still the best!

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.
