Superheroes can be seen working together, even so, there are a lot of cases in the comics, where these heroes can be seen working against each other.

The rivalry may not always be healthy, and could also have some bloodshed in it, even so, it would still be a rivalry. Here is a list of some such famous superhero rivalries:

Emma Frost & Jean Grey

After Emma joining the X-Men she provides marriage counseling to Scott Summers, but soon they form a psychic sexual relationship, Jean using her psychic powers finds them in bed and shatters her diamond form, this sure creates a rift between the two, Jean then has Scott to herself but later after Jean’s death, Emma and Scott come into a legitimate relationship. Seriously girls..fighting over Scott?

Hulk & The Thing

This one was sure to take place, well it is the two strongest fighters in the Marvel Universe. Of course the Hulk is way more stronger than the Thing but still, both can go on for hours.
