We were talking about Johnny and Sue in the FF thread and I thought about Wanda and Pietro and the difference between them.  Sue was protective of Johnny sometimes, but she never considered him her property as I often felt that Peitro did with Wanda.  I don't know much about Booster Gold's relationship with his sister, I never read those issues that much, but I can't think of that many more brother/sister superhero or supervillain pairings in one title or even across comic book title lines.  Anyone else know of some?

Lightning Lad and Lightning Lass, Captain Marvel and Mary Marvel. Captain Cold and Golden Glider, Tony Gordon and Barbara Gordon, Rod Reilly and Danette Reilly, Jade and Obsidian, the Tornado Twins . . .

Captain Cold had a sister? 

Lex Luthor sometimes has a sister.

Do the Wonder Twins count? They made at least one appearance in DC print.

Len Snart's sister, Lisa Snart was a figure skater, the Top was her lover. When he died, she set out to get her revenge on the Flash as the Golden Glider.

  Good name, do you remember the issue?

Golden Glider made her first appearance in THE FLASH 250 (June '77).

Geo-Force and Terra were an unusual brother-sister pair, in that they were members of different teams (the Outsiders and the Teen Titans).  The characters were created independently by Mike Barr and Marv Wolfman, who then decided to make them brother and sister, to explain the similarity of their powers.

Mammoth and Shimmer, members of the Fearsome Five and foes of the Outsiders were also brother and sister.

Come to think of it, the Nuclear Family were also foes of the Outsiders, and included two brothers and a sister (Biff, Brat and Sis).  They were robots though, so probably don't count.

Obsidian and Jade were the first ones I thought of, Jimmm got them. Don't forget about Northstar and Aurora as well.

There's Tim and Tam Robinson from Gold Key's Space Family Robinson (a.k.e. Lost in Space).

Though I preferred when she was nonexistent, do Val and Franklin Richards count? Also, the entirety of Power Pack

Well, they started out as civilian employees of Tony Stark, but there was Morley and Clymenestra Irwin in Iron Man back in the '80s. Morley and Clymenestra were super geniuses who worked for Stark International and followed Stark to his new enterprise, Circuits Maximus, after Obadiah Stane took over Stark's companies. 

Stane bombed Circuits Maximus, and Morley Irwin was killed. A grieving Clymenestra blamed Stark and gave AIM information about his arsenal of armors, specifically requesting that they kill Stark while they were at it. However, she herself got killed.
