Yesterday during Screened.com's The Screening Room of the first Iron Man movie, the question came up of who is the best girlfriend in a comic book movie. Every hero has to have a girl, right? It really depends on how you define the "best." Are you talking about the best looking, the coolest, or the one with the best character? There was also some debate whether or not if them having superpowers voids their role as a "girlfriend" (for example, Famke Janssen as Jean Grey). Let's think about some of the more notable comic book girlfriends.
Others include Blake Lively as Carol Ferris in Green Lantern. There's only been a couple images released of her and we haven't seen how she'll come across in the movie. Someone mentioned Rosario Dawson as Gail or Brittany Murphy as Shellie, both from Sin City.
Who do I think is the best?

I'm sure there are so many more possible candidates I haven't mentioned. We could be here all day listing them all. Normally I don't like these questions that sort of put you on the spot. This isn't a question I've sat and pondered. Without trying to give it too much thought, I think I would go with Jennifer Connelly's Betty Banner (as I sort of hinted above). She's pretty, classy and smart. It's been a while since I've seen that Hulk movie but I don't recall her doing the annoying screaming/damsel in distress thing.
I am curious to see who you guys think is the best comic book movie girlfriend. Who did I leave off? Who is your choice and why?
