Love, as they say, makes the world go' round.' They also claim real love goes rarely smoothly. This is certainly true of the relationship-based Marvel Universe, starting with the flagship title The Fantastic Four, which broke from the company's tradition of publishing monster titles to display a family of explorers.
The family dynamics involving these four personalities brought something new to the pages of the comics— a romance between an aloof scientist and a young woman who grew up to learn the full extent of her power, a flawed thing that couldn't completely believe in the love he discovered, a brash young man who often lets his heart overrule his common feeling.
The fresh and distinct approach to stories brought a range of interactions to life, romantic and otherwise, which distinguished the emerging Marvel Universe. Happy marriages, bitter breakups, triangles of love, weddings of surprise and clandestine affairs. At least one stalker at gunpoint has been searching for her twisted vengeance.
There are fathers and children who have a good relationship with each other— and those who late in life learn about their connections with each other.

Here are 19 relationships that the Marvel Universe has always changed, and one that has almost destroyed it.
