Clark Kent And Lois Lane Are Dunzo. Plus Other Iconic, Fictional Couples Who Broke Up.

In the past few years, we’ve seen many celebrity couples split that we really thought would be in it for the long haul. Get ready to add another iconic pair to the list. Apparently, after sniffing butts since 1938 and finally marrying in 1986, Clark Kent and Lois Lane are dunzo. DC Comics is planing a reboot of the Superman franchise to begin on September 28th. And here is their description of the new issue #1: “Clark Kent is single and living on his own. He has never been married. Lois Lane is dating a colleague at the Daily Planet (and his name isn’t Clark Kent).” [Forbes]

So sad. After the jump, other fictional couples who have split.

  • Barbie and Ken have had a rocky ride during the last few years. In 2004, the two split. But this year, for Valentine’s Day, Barbie changed her Facebook status to “in a relationship.” Mattel confirmed that the lovers were back together. “To be fair to them, they have been together for about 43 years, so you know, I think everyone needs a break,” a spokesperson said. “So they took a little break and had fun out on their own and were certainly out and about, but I think ultimately, again, they were destined for each other.”
  • In 2009, rumors swirled that Kermit and Miss Piggy had broken up when Kermit appeared alongside Lady Gaga on the VMA red carpet. Kermit rushed to put the whispers to rest. “Well, I wouldn’t really call it a ‘date’ — at least not if I don’t want to end up as a coat for Miss Piggy. Y’see, I just gave Lady Gaga a ride to the VMAs, and when Lady Gaga left her credentials in the limo, I had to bring them to her,” he said. “As far as kissing Lady Gaga goes, she is a very good kisser, but it was not a romantic kiss. It was a kiss for good luck.” I smell a dog frog. [MTV]
  • Last year, Mickey and Minnie Mouse broke up. (Be careful, it’s NSFW thanks to language.) Well, at least according to this College Humor video.

Which of these breakups caught you the most by surprise?
