Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Bounds Of Matrimony Edition


Among the many, MANY questionable announcements to generate nerd-rage since the relaunch of the New 52 in 2011, the one that most chafed me was DC editorial’s insistence that none of their heroes was married, for some nebulous reason that never held water.  Yes, marrying off characters changes their status quo, but given that the entire point of the launch/boot/vamp was to change the status quo, the announcement seems suspect.  Of course, comics have long had problems with the m-word (because happy couples can be dramatically inert), but given that Barry Allen, Arthur Curry and that one guy with the red cape were all married for decades, I had hoped for better.  As always, though, even if the creators annoy us as readers, it provides grist for discussion, begging today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) knows that the train has already sailed, but will always quietly root for Ted & Victoria, asking: What two fictional characters do you most believe should be or should have stayed married?
