    In a lot of shows about superheroes, the identities of the heroes are kept secret. This becomes a huge plot point most of the time, and inevitably someone close to the hero finds out.

    But then so much of the time they just lose their shit and start crying and acting crazy. Really dude??? You're sad because your buddy didn't tell you they had superpowers? You're not even upset that they go out and fight crime to keep you and the world safe, risking their life, but you're upset that they didn't tell you?

    That's a possibility you need to be prepared for going into any relationship. I mentally convince myself that everyone I know is secretly a superhero/villain. This way, when they go for the dramatic reveal, I can quickly and confidently establish the emotional high ground. They're not gonna pull any surprises on me.

    I always wonder
    What if a super villain falls in love with their arch-rival super hero without realizing..? One day they come home and discover both in costume still or suffering injuries from their recent fight. Does it destroy the relationship or does one or the other stop their heroics/villainous antics to stay together? Or do they just shrug it off and act like it's a job? During the day they fight and at night they tend to each other? lol

    Haven't seen them in a while.

    If I was in that situation, I'd think it'd be fucking awesome. I would love them more for that tbh.

    Also I need to see this happen now.

    I think this was the plot to the movie "Mr. and Mrs. Smith", actually - except instead of being superheroes, they were both contract killers.
    ...It's one of the movies I'd like to watch simply because of that point - I just hope my information is correct.

    I forget what the movie was, but there was one about a super hero school and one of the kids there was named "Warren Peace", like "war and peace," because one of his parents was a villain and the other was a hero. I also read a short story about something similar where there were two spies from rival organizations who were married to each other and didn't realize it.

    I know a superhero, his name is Morisawa Chiaki and his superpower is breaking my heart with really high event borders and making Happy Elements rich because he's always rank. His main power is being the ranking five star so Happy Elements can get money from all the thirsty RyuseitaiP. I am broke so I have to accept the reality that I can only have him if I sacrifice money for 11.8 million point revival events. It's a very complicated relationship between me, my money, and this stupid budget power ranger.

    dont worry i haven't spent money on ensemble hell yet

    superheroes are actually kinda lame if you think about it though

    i wouldn't want another job after my day job i would go home and sleep

    Totally not to deflect attention away from myself, on Shadria's story idea, that's happened several times already between Batman and Catwoman. Sometimes he figures her out (like in The Animated Series) and sometimes they both figure each other out (like in the Batman Telltale series), but it's always entertaining to see how they handle their secrets getting out. Honestly, I don't know how anybody keeps that secret when they're seen in costume. I would be like "Catwoman? Your voice sounds just like my girlfriend Selina!" or "Hey Ollie, I like that hood!" or "Is that Clark? I thought he needed glasses!"

    Out of the top of my head I can only remember having a thread like this.

    If you're willing to dig this out, I suggest reading Villainous Crush or Dating Catwoman.

    ...Hope I put the links right, it has been a while since I last used BBCode intrface, if I didn't search them up on Tv Tropes, you will not be disappointed.

    This is why I'm careful in hiding my superpowers from my friends and family. Tbh one of my favourite shows, Smallville, showed a superheroes relationship to others well imo. There was a bit of drama with the reveal of Clark being The Blur (early Superman for those who haven't watched it), but either they didn't last long or they ended up helping him in his struggles. Some becoming heroes themselves.

    Doesn't stop you from proclaiming them loud and proud to everyone else here, though... How's that working out for you?

    If they get mad at you, just bribe them by abusing your power to have fun with them. Unless they are a strict by-the-book type that is flat out against that. Then prove to them that you will be responsible with your powers, and you will use them for good. If they don't accept it within a few days of that then it probably isn't meant to be.
