Great LOVE Stories in Superhero Comic Books ?

What made the top 2 comic book movies (Superman, Spiderman) so successful ?

I think a big part of it is the love story. I know many females who loved the love story part of things in these movies

so looking at the superhero comic book world, what other really great love stories are there ?

Preacher is a top-notch comic series, which ran 66 issues and was written by Garth Ennis with art by Steve Dillon (and is entirely collected in TPBs). I'd have to argue that Preacher's central love story between the two main characters makes for an incredibly strong read. Sure, thats not the entire story (Ennis throws in lots of twisted stuff and there's a quest), but its the first thing that came to mind w/ "love stories."

The whole Green Goblin/Spider-Man fight in Amaz. Spider-Man #121-#122 is also classic stuff.

Swamp Thing/Abby

Mostly dysfunctional, it's your classic self absorbed brain-damaged emotionally immature swamp god meets wishy washy white haired girl sort of story.

But it's more like an adult relationship than a lot of comicbook stuff.
