Legendary Comic Book Duos and Ultimate Friendship Goals

From between the comic book pages, to their on-screen debuts, some duos are just so legendary you never forget them. Ahead of all new interactive film Batman: Death in the Family, featuring the infamous pairing of Batman and Robin, we wanted to bring you a roundup of well-known duos that originated in comics. Batman: Death in the Family is out on digital download October 13th and on Blu-ray™ October 26th.

Batman & Robin

Often referred to as the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder or the Dynamic Duo, Batman & Robin are the ultimate comic book pair and on screen. Robin is the junior counterpart to Batman and a very useful sidekick when it comes to saving the day. The pair came together after Robin loses his parents and Batman, sympathising with him due to a similar tragedy of his own, decides to take legal custody of Robin. Their close relationship is wonderfully showcased in new film Batman: Death in the Family.

Superman & Lois Lane

Another infamous pairing, Superman & Lois Lane were one of the first superhero comic book romances, with their complicated relationship featuring in almost every Superman comic and film. The pair married in comic Superman: The Wedding Album. Lois is an essential part of the Superman mythos.

Ant-Man and The Wasp

The original comic book versions of Ant-Man and the Wasp are the ultimate couple goals, as a rare husband and wife comic book duo. With the astonishing ability to shrink to the size of an ant and a wasp, these two complement each other perfectly, fighting crime in miniature form with all their might no matter how big the task.

Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy

When she’s not flying solo or mixing with the evil Joker, Harley Quinn often hangs out with best friend Poison Ivy. Their relationship is tipped as one of the most engaging, complex and explored relationships in Batman history, as some later DC spin offs suggest the pair are in an “open relationship”. Together these two super villains commonly work against Batman, teaming up for the ultimate girl power duo.

Green Arrow & Green Lantern

Although they are known for bickering like a married couple, Green Arrow & Green Lantern are extremely similar, both being arrogant hotheads! However, they do pretty well at balancing each other out, tackling situations in disparate ways. Although the two are now hardly seen together in modern day adaptations and comics, you can see echoes of their partnership in Green Lantern and Green Arrow movies.

Batman: Death in the Family is available on Digital Download October 13th, and on Blu-ray™ October 26th.

Go behind the mask and into the deep backstory of one of DC’s most revered anti-heroes in Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons. A new entry in the popular series of DC Animated Movies, Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons offers a new take on the Deathstroke legacy. Mercenary and master assassin Slade Wilson leads two lives: one as the relentless killer known as Deathstroke, and the other as a dedicated family man. When these worlds collide, forced together by the vicious terror group known as H.I.V.E., it is the killer in Slade who must fight to save his loved ones, as well as what remains of himself. With his soul torn apart and his young son held captive, Deathstroke will have to atone for the sins of his past to fuel the battles of his future!


Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Michael Chiklis (The Shield, The Commish, American Horror Story: Freak Show) headlines the cast as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, alongside Sasha Alexander (Rizzoli & Isles, Shameless, NCIS) as Wilson’s wife, Adeline “Addie” Kane Wilson.


Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons gives DC Animated Movies’ their first true look into the complicated backstory of one of DC’s most controversial characters – Deathstroke is sometimes villain, sometimes anti-hero, and always deadly,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Senior Vice President, Originals, Animation and Family Marketing. “Michael Chiklis does an incredible job capturing the ruthless approach and conflicted internal struggles of Deathstroke.”
