Tom and Joe Ollmann, great subject! I may be forgetful, but this was actually rather hard to come up with. Some of the brother combo's noted are perhaps somewhat cheap or hopeful, but here they are.

1. Scott (Cyclops) and Alex (Havok) Summers
2. Matt and "Mike" Murdock, (Daredevil's imaginary twin brother!)
3. Juggernaut and Professor X (all right, Juggernaut is his step-brother)
4. Nick Fury and Scorpio
5. Shang Chi, Master of Kung Fu, and Midnight (yet another evil step-brother)

Hawk and Dove and the Furry Freak Brothers (both already taken) are among my favorites as well.
