Sometimes, I think these sorts of problems can be resolved with an additional helper like an icon or something of the sort. Sometimes a UI can suffer from trying to simplify too much. However the use of colour and iconography might clear things up a bit. In the case of your batman example, if I got it right, red is always linked to catwoman, and blue is ...
