10 Superheroes Whose Personal Relationships Couldn’t Last For Long

There are some superheroes such as the flash whose wife died at the hands of his enemy. And then there are some who were responsible for ending their marriages with their partners. Some of them are:

Superman And Lois Lane

In the Injustice series, the Joker drugs Superman and makes her kill Lois Lane and their unborn child. Not only that he also makes him kill 5 million people in Metropolis too. When Superman regains consciousness, he is mad with rage and guilt, he then kills Joker, which leads to his fall. Post that he becomes a dictator and Batman has to bring in people from other Earths to stop Superman.

Nick Fury

There have been many women who took up the mantle of Black Widow. Here the title belongs to Monica Chang, who has been the ex-wife of the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury. The couple also got busy and had a son too, named Julius Chang. Their marriage ended because she found out that Nick was cheating on her with her friends as well as her own mother. But it ended well for her as it was her, not Nick who became the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Though Cyclops and Jean Grey had their ups and downs, the couple was the best that the X-Men franchise had to offer. Jean had been putting off Wolvie because she loved Scott Summers, but then Jean dies in the dark Phoenix saga at the hands of Wolverine. This shocked the fans but had a little impact as after Jean’s death, Emma Frost and Scott come into a legitimate relationship.

Gwen Stacy

The character assassination of Gwen Stacy was even more awful than her death. As here due to a bad storyline, Gwen and Norman Osborne’s kids are shown to be born at a speeding rate, with Mary Jane leaking this information out to Peter, even putting her in a bad light. This arc had no positives at all and was hated by the fans. Not just that this has till date been the biggest betrayal to a superhero. Not just that it was Norman only, who killed her in the end, and after her death, Peter comes to know all this.

Black Panther

Ororo Munroe and T’Challa were childhood lovers, this was way before them becoming a member of the X-Men and Balck Panther respectively. In Avengers VS X-Men the then-married couple goes head-on with each other. Panther nullifies her powers with his machinery leaving Storm pissed at him for having him made contingency plans for her.


Star-Lord is someone who undoubtedly is a charmer, recently got together with Kitty Pryde. But he was really rude and dominating. This made the relationship really bad and it eventually ended.

Hank Pym

Hank Pym is known to have some issues when it comes to him. Be it him reinventing himself or being kicked out of the Avengers, Pym after feeling like a loser, started taking it out on the Wasp, who he used to beat. The Wasp one day stood for herself, showed the dude what he really was and eventually left him.


To all the fans who are familiar with the storyline, Flashpoint, this one would not be a surprise. Wonder Woman and Aquaman start an affair when Aquaman is already married to Mera, this happens and then when things go south, well she beheads Mera and both, the Amazons and the Atlanteans go at war, taking the whole planet with them.

Cyclops Again

In this storyline, Cyclops marries a stewardess and moves to a different town. He then has a baby with her, all is going really well for the couple but when Jean returns abandons his wife and child, * as if people needed any more reasons to hate Cyclops * this then takes place, causing his wife to commit suicide and his son grows up to be Cable. What is even worse is that it wasn’t even Jean who returned, but a clone made by Mister Sinister to trick Cyclops.



Once, Peter had it all. Who would have ever thought that a science nerd would get a hot redhead coming up to him? He was with Mary Jane, and though the relationship had some problems, with the stillborn kid being born amongst them, or you can call it Norman Osborn bribing the nurse to say that, it was very beautiful. But it all ended when Aunt May is dying and Peter trades the existence of his marriage for Aunt May’s life with Mephisto ending everything.
