Wolverine & Jean Grey
My favourite 'couple' from the comics has always been Wolverine (Logan) & Jean Grey.
Jean Grey reminded me of this girl with striking features who was always teased for being intelligent, ambitious and idealistic. Misunderstood by some, my Jean Grey rises against all odds and is the epitome of understated beauty with a brilliant mind and a kind heart. It is she who put others before herself and sacrifices her own happiness for humanity.
Wolverine too reminded me of this boy whose cool, rugged outlook masks his deep affections for Jean Grey. Misunderstood by many as the wild spirit who is tormented by his past, my Wolverine is a caring and eloquent gentleman with a poetic soul.
Although in the X-men comics, Jean Grey married Cyclops, some believe it was Wolverine whom she truly loved. As for Wolverine, alas, no one, not even poets, knows how much a heart can hold...
