Ships that I Ship: Day 151: Clark/J'onn

Canon: Justice League
Pairing: J'onn Jonzz/Clark Kent
Canon Level: Colleagues/Friends

Clark and J'onn are both characters who have a lot of metaphorical weight to them, which I think makes for a good basis for companionship between them. J'onn is the last of his kind, alone and mourning, observing this strange world he finds himself on that he can never quite fit in. And Clark is Superman, with a core of goodness and kindness so intrinsic to him that it's a little intimidating. And, for all that he loves his parents and his childhood, he's also a lone alien on Earth making the best of his situation. There's something sweet about the idea of Clark inviting J'onn into his personal life and sharing his family with J'onn and all of the Kents making a place for J'onn in their lives. Clark can't replace J'onn's family, but maybe they're both a little less lonely with each other.
