Beauty and the Beast is a beautiful tale that kids are told, the tale about a broken man, who is beastly in nature, a girl who has an encounter with him, sees the good in him, soothes his wounds and the two become inseparable, while not exactly so, but even in comics we have many characters who have quite a similar story. Here are a few of them:
Wolverine and Jean Grey
Wolverine, we all know is all about his bloodlust and rage, his anger making him even stronger and feared. While Jean, until in her Phoenix form, is calm and considerate. When Wolvie meets Jean, he becomes attracted to her and she is the one who makes him stick around with the X-Men. Though the two can’t live together, there is something beautiful about their relationship.
Daisy Johnson and Grant Ward
Ward, in the beginning of the show Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was one of the good guys. Or so we thought. An impeccable soldier and a great Spy, he and Daisy begin to develop an attraction and eventually start seeing each other, later it is revealed that he actually is a HYDRA agent. Even after the two are on the opposite side of the war, there still is something between them.
Beast and Dazzler
This one, it has everything to it in its very name, Beast here fell for Dazzler, who repeatedly refuses to take help from him and even asks him to go away. But Beast’s feelings make him go further and further, only to realize that she is under the control of a person who is using her powers for underground fights. He later in the arc helps and rescues her.
Batman and Catwoman
Oh, we don’t even to get into the depths of this relationship. Batman has had a scarred life, constantly losing his loved ones, fighting crime and never being able to cope with the ones he’s lost. It is hen he’s with Catwoman that he is actually at peace. She sees the person that is there under the hood and makes him love again.
Harley Quinn and the Joker
Okay, this has to be the most fucked up relationship ever in Comics. Harleen Quinzel, a psychiatrist actually tries to see the good in Joker, heal him, make him sane only to be manipulated by the Clown Prince of Mayhem into loving him and going insane herself. She even later in the relationship is tormented and tortured by the Joker but still continues to love her.
Hulk and Black Widow
This couple has perfectly portrayed this relationship. We have seen how uncontrollable the Hulk gets when he gets angry but when Black Widow is in front of him the beast starts to get normal once again in the comics as well in the movies.
