Charles/Erik is a slash pairing in X-Men fandom. Sometimes name smushed, regrettably, into 'Cherik'.

Canon

Professor Charles Francis Xavier, also known as Professor X, is a powerful telepath and the founder of the superhero group the X-Men. He first appeared in the X-Men comics and has subsequently appeared in the various adaptations and spin-offs: X-Men: The Animated Series, the first three X-Men movies, the Ultimate X-Men comics, the cartoons X-Men: Evolution and Wolverine and the X-Men, and the 2011 prequel film X-Men: First Class.

Erik Magnus Lehnsherr, also known as Magneto, has powers related to metal and magnetism. He was once Xavier's close friend but has generally been his archenemy in canon. Generally. Off and on. Mostly on.

Fandom Overview

A fairly minor pairing in the comics fandom, though with some passionate advocates, it exploded after the release of X-Men First Class.

Comics

Movieverse

Wolverine and the X-Men

They barely interact in this canon, what with Xavier being in a coma in the future for the whole thing. There's little to no fannish activity for them in this fandom (afaik).

X-Men: First Class

Where to begin? General consensus (even outside the fandom) is that the film is really nothing more or less than a romantic tragedy. Meta and primers have been written regarding the two characters' textual and subtextual relationship, as well as more fanfiction than you could read in a lifetime. Tumblr has also been busy.
