A supercouple or super couple is a popular or wealthy pairing that intrigues and fascinates the public in an intense or obsessive fashion. The term originated in the United States, was coined in the early 1980s when intense public interest in fictional soap opera couple Luke Spencer and Laura Webber, from General Hospital, made the pair a popular culture phenomenon; the term supercouple refers to fictional couples from television dramas and film, such as Gone with the Wind's Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara. With regard to real-life pairings and the mainstream media have focused on wealthy or popular celebrity couples, have titled them supercouples or power couples. Examples are the former pairing of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, the former relationship of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Supercouples are defined as popular or financially wealthy pairings that are admired in an intense or obsessive fashion and influence society's expectations of what a great love story or relationship should be.
The term supercouple first appeared with the wedding of General Hospital's Luke and Laura. Thirty million viewers tuned into the event, the widespread media attention it received from prominent newspapers and magazines set the pairing up as the default model for other soap opera supercouples; the model Luke and Laura followed consisted of action stories and obstacles for the couple to overcome. This paradigm subsequently became ideal of fictional soap opera supercouples in America, extended to other genres. In Queer TV: Framing Sexualities On US Television, Nancy Martin says, "Actively desiring heterosexual pairs not bent on reproduction became a required advertising device and a narratological mainstay on daytime and primetime." In Russian Television Today, David MacFadyen concludes, "Even the busiest, most rambling soap operas are neatly and conclusively distilled in the public's mind by a'supercouple' or tiny, central pair of protagonists." Luke and Laura's popularity resulted in fictional supercouples being regarded as soulmates.
The pairings have overcome numerous obstacles or significant strife in order to be together. Though a successful model, the concept has been criticized for hindering the growth of characters' relationships with other love interests. In her essay criticism of the term, The Siren Call of the Super Couple, Diana Reep describes the love of a supercouple as "so perfect that they are incapable of having romantic feelings for anyone else under any circumstances. In addition, the two have no personal flaws or idiosyncrasies that could interfere with their perfect love. Only an evil, outside force could disturb their relationship". While Days of Our Lives former supervising producer Al Rabin credited the supercouple aspect as the secret to the show's success, his then–executive producer Ken Corday stated, "By definition, supercouple excludes others on the show; every time they walk into a room, every other character, no matter how important, becomes window dressing, I've never believed in it." Corday added, "they're not.
They're an interesting couple or they're not."Celebrity couples may be regarded as supercouples. Interest in the pairings ranges from media and public obsession to calculation of the couples' combined finances. Fans use portmanteaux to refer to their favorite couples on online message boards, a significant aspect of the "shipping fandom"; the "shipping fandom" scene, whose name is derived from the word "relationship", is a general term for fans' emotional or intellectual involvement with the ongoing development of romance in a work of fiction. Though technically applicable to any such involvement, it refers chiefly to various related social dynamics observable on the Internet, is used outside of that context. "Shipping" can involve any kind of relationship—from the well-known and established, to the ambiguous or those undergoing development, to the improbable and the blatantly impossible. People involved in shipping assert that the relationship does exist, will exist, or that they would like it to exist.
"Portmanteaux first came about with Lewis Carroll" as a way to blend words, stated Jonathan Gabay, author of the Copywriter's Compendium—a reference guide to the English language. Gabay added that people blend words in this fashion because sometimes there are words an individual wants, but those words do not exist. "There's a feeling you are trying to get out", he said. For fictional pairings, examples showcase themselves as Logan and Veronica becomes "LoVe", Josh and Reva becomes "Jeva", Jack and Kate and Sara becomes "MiSa", so on; some couples are given more complex portmanteaux. Seth Cohen of the show The O. C. parodied name-blending trends. Gabay said portmanteaux"... giv people an essence of. In double-barrelled names, the hyphen is pushing one name away from the other.

Home to the headquarters of the United Nations, New York is an important center for international diplomacy.
Situated on one of the world's largest natural harbors, New York City consists of five boroughs, each of, a separate county of the State of New York. The five boroughs – Brooklyn, Manhattan, The Bronx, Staten Island – were consolidated into a single city in 1898; the city and its metropolitan area constitute the premier gateway for legal immigration to the United States. As many as 800 languages are spoken in New York, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. New York City is home to more than 3.2 million residents born outside the United States, the largest foreign-born population of any city in the world. In 2017, the New York metropolitan area produced a gross metropolitan product of US$1.73 trillion. If greater New York City were a sovereign state, it would have the 12th highest GDP in the world. New York is home to the highest number of billionaires of any city in the world. New York City traces its origins to a trading post founded by colonists from the Dutch Republic in 1624 on Lower Manhattan.
The city and its surroundings came under English control in 1664 and were renamed New York after King Charles II of England granted the lands to his brother, the Duke of York. New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790, it has been the country's largest city since 1790. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to the U. S. by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is an international symbol of the U. S. and its ideals of liberty and peace. In the 21st century, New York has emerged as a global node of creativity and entrepreneurship, social tolerance, environmental sustainability, as a symbol of freedom and cultural diversity.

In 1664, the city was named in honor of the Duke of York.
James's older brother, King Charles II, had appointed the Duke proprietor of the former territory of New Netherland, including the city of New Amsterdam, which England had seized from the Dutch. During the Wisconsinan glaciation, 75,000 to 11,000 years ago, the New York City region was situated at the edge of a large ice sheet over 1,000 feet in depth; the erosive forward movement of the ice contributed to the separation of what is now Long Island and Staten Island. That action left bedrock at a shallow depth, providing a solid foundation for most of Manhattan's skyscrapers. In the precolonial era, the area of present-day New York City was inhabited by Algonquian Native Americans, including the Lenape, whose homeland, known as Lenapehoking, included Staten Island; the first documented visit into New York Harbor by a European was in 1524 by Giovanni da Verrazzano, a Florentine explorer in the service of the French crown. He named it Nouvelle Angoulême. A Spanish expedition led by captain Estêvão Gomes, a Portuguese sailing for Emperor Charles V, arrived in New York Harbor in January 1525 and charted the mouth of the Hudson River, which he named Río de San Antonio.

Jack Abbott (The Young and the Restless)
Jack Abbott is a fictional character from the American CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless. The character was first introduced in 1980 being portrayed by Terry Lester. Lester was replaced by Peter Bergman shortly thereafter. Bergman relocated to California for the role after he auditioned for the part, his first episode aired on November 27, 1989. Jack is known for his longstanding feud with the Newman family patriarch, Victor Newman as well as his romances with Nikki Newman, Phyllis Summers and Sharon Newman. Jack has represented the Abbott family as the patriarch since the 2006 passing of his father, John Abbott; the role of Jack Abbott was first written into the series in June 1980, being portrayed by Terry Lester. In May 1985, it was announced. I've enjoyed being with the show. However, I was concerned about the possibility of Blade being picked up as a series and being tied to The Young and the Restless." However, he ended up staying. The writers picked up on Lester having "played with Jack's dialogue" according to his intuitions.
In 1989, Lester quit out of anger, as he felt that Jack was being "squeezed" out of the storyline, was upset that Lauralee Bell's character Christine Blair was moved to the forefront of several storylines. The producers began exploring recast options. At the time, who had rose to super stardom as Dr. Cliff Warner on All My Children, had been fired. Bergman's firing made headlines, Melody Thomas Scott, who portrays Nikki Newman, suggested Bergman as Jack to her husband and former executive producer Edward J. Scott when she read of the news in Soap Opera Digest. Bergman revealed that the producers had asked about his height, they inquired about Bergman's feelings about replacing someone, he was hesitant to take the role. He stated in 2009: "I was on All My Children and replacing someone was sheer death, it never worked on All My Children." When the producers called him again, Bergman was not doing well financially and he decided it "couldn't hurt" to audition. Scott arranged for Bergman to come to California and audition with Jerry Douglas and Jess Walton, who portrayed John and Jill Abbott respectively.
After a successful audition, Bergman was offered the part. Bergman reluctantly relocated to California after accepting the part, he made his debut on November 27, 1989. In 1997, Bergman appeared as Jack on an episode of the popular CBS series The Nanny entitled "The Heather Biblow Story". In the episode, he shared an onscreen kiss with fellow guest star Pamela Anderson. Bergman guest starred as Jack on another of the network's comedy series' The King of Queens. In 2006, Bergman stated: "I love what I do! I get a new script every day, I can't wait to find out what happens next. I've been doing this for 18 years, I still can't wait to see what Jack has in store for us next." While he was in the role, Lester stated that Jack was a villain, but not entirely: "I think Jack has changed in the past four years, although there's a tendency to make him the same old circus villain he was in the beginning. The producers, the writers and myself were able to keep Jack progressing - never a wonderful person, but not nasty just to be nasty."
Of the character, Bergman stated that: "Jack goes from tender, loving scenes at the beginning of an episode with Nikki, where he's so pathetic and loving and sincere, to taking someone's head off by Act 5. Jack is mercurial that way, he can be in a good mood and you scuff his shoe and he wants to kill you. I don't have any problems supporting that with real emotions."According to Bergman, "Jack is not annoyed by the'little people' ever." Though Jack is a villain, Bergman "wanted Jack to have Achilles heels." Jack spends majority of his life longing for "a solid happy family." Bergman's first lines as Jack on the show were "Smiling. No more Mr. nice guy." Jack has always had trouble keeping the right woman. When compared to his former alter ego Cliff Warner, Bergman explained: "It is quite the contrast, the guy who found his one true love, followed by the most unlucky-in-love guy out there, someone who can't seem to hold on to it. Love is just out of his grasp." During his 20th anniversary reflection, Bergman described Jack as "a reckless, uncaring cad" changed by love.
Jack's playboy issues stem from missing his mother. His unfaithfulness was a way of unconsciously punishing all women for his mother abandoning him. For Bergman's portrayal of Jack, Mamie Johnson is his "Achilles heel". Mamie is the woman, around since he was a child when his mother isn't. Jack cannot get anything past Mamie. However, John fills the role of father and mother for Jack which makes him a "therefore larger than life figure in Jack's life." Bergman described John as Jack's "rudder" or "consciousness." So when John dies, Jack feels alone. Soon after, Jack begins seeing John's ghost. According to Bergman, Jack is "so desperate to keep his dead dad around, he keeps conjuring him up!" Bergman stated that Jack's three most significant romances with Nikki Newman, Phyllis Summers and Sharon Newman helped to reform him. Jack goes after Nikki for business and revenge, he intends to get Nikki to fall for him and use her to get Jabot Cosmetics back from Victor. Jack's plan to bargain
