The Supercouple concept (big "S") refers to a particular creative strategy and style of writing used from around 1982 to 1991. It was successfully applied to Bo/Hope, Roman/Marlena, RoJohn/Marlena, Shane/Kim, Steve/Kayla and Jack/Jennifer. Tony/Anna were also very popular but TPTB didn't quite invest in them to the same extent as the others. The strategy was also attempted with Adrienne/Justin but they never quite took off and are widely considered a "failed" supercouple.

The term "supercouple" (small "s") is pretty arbitrary and can be used to denote any reasonably successful/popular pairing.
