LUCAS WERNECK (ARTIST: SINS OF SINISTER, IMMORTAL X-MEN)

“First, my favorite classic couple of all time: Jean Grey and Scott Summers. I really love their cute vanilla relationship, but I have to admit that Scott and Emma Frost have something special too. It's not just the fact that they're both freaking gorgeous, they bring the drama that we love.”

JUANN CABAL (ARTIST: BLACK PANTHER, COSMIC GHOST RIDER)

Phyla-Vell and Moondragon. I grew very fond of them during [my run on] GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (2020) with Al Ewing. I loved what he did with them individually and as a couple. Their relationship seemed organic and full of nuance. They were facing married life problems while saving the universe from rampant evil gods. It was beautiful.”

STEPHANIE WILLIAMS (WRITER: WAKANDA, MARVEL’S VOICES INFINITY COMIC)

She-Hulk and Wyatt Wingfoot are just so darn cute. Wyatt is as confident and caring as they come, and someone like Jennifer Walters deserves someone who loves her as she is, big and green. The love and respect for Wyatt are mutual on Jennifer's end. They're romance novel material.”

STEVE ORLANDO (WRITER: SCARLET WITCH, MARAUDERS)

“It has to be Iceman and Romeo because they're both loving, provocative, and compassionate, but also because they've faced the same types of trials and tribulations couples do in real life, regardless of sexuality. However, for Iceman, those struggles have been shot through a lens that only comics can provide. Here, we have a man who's come out twice—as a mutant while a teen, and as a gay man as an adult (but also as a teen, sort of, due to time travel!). Then, we have the man he fell in love with when they were both teens, but who now is back in his life as an adult (also due to time travel!). And don't get me started on overcoming differences and assumptions between mutant and Inhuman culture…”

CARMEN CARNERO (ARTIST: CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY)

“I'll play home and choose Steve Rogers and Sharon Carter. I find it very sweet how he's still shy with her after all these years.”

LUCIANO VECCHIO (WRITER/ARTIST: MARVEL’S VOICES: ICEMAN INFINITY COMIC)

Wiccan and Hulkling were introduced around the time I first came out of the closet, imprinted in my heart, and remain to this day a favorite narrative of mutual love and support while growing as individuals and as a couple. Goals!

And, now I have a soft spot for Bobby Drake’s messy and blurry-lined but still loving relationships with Romeo and Christian Frost, because I got to write them in MARVEL’S VOICES: ICEMAN.”
