The "shipping" or relationship between Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender). This bromance can be seen in all three of the newer X-Men (X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and X-Men: Apocalypse) They are obviously in love, and honestly, when are they going to kiss?!
