10 Best Superhero Friendships You Never Knew Existed

Who knew Doombot had so many friends?

Marvel Comics

Strange friendships are an unusual yet integral part of any good comic. Before they became so well established, friendships like those between Batman and Superman, or Spider-Man and Deadpool, seemed like they'd be almost impossible - whereas now it's hard to imagine them not being best buds.

But since not every friendship can have the comic coverage that Supes and the Dark Knight get, many other chummy heroes go under the radar in comparison. While a blossoming bond that is covered for all of two issues admittedly isn't as important, it's no less delightful when it involves two figures that you'd simply never expect to be friends.

Really, it's part of comic tradition that these unusual friendships continue to pop up every now and then, like a version of the Breakfast Club where everyone was also given sweet superpowers as well as profound emotional damage.

Even if you only see a brief glimpse of these relationships, they're still reassuring to see, as it shows that being a superhero isn't all civil wars and tragic deaths - sometimes it's playing table tennis and getting hot dogs with an unexpected ally.

I like my comics like I like my coffee - in huge, unquestionably unhealthy doses.
