Drabble: The Short Career of Kal-El, Alias Clark Kent, Alias Superman

I've decided to try to write a "Five Crossover Drabbles That Never Happened to Lois and Clark" thingy. The first two are Space Oddity and Conversation in a Metropolis Parking Lot, here's the third, which is a Men in Black crossover.

100-word Lois and Clark / Men In Black crossover Drabble. All characters belong to their respective creators and are used without any intention of damaging copyright. This story may not be distributed on a profit-making basis.

The Short Career of Kal-El, Alias Clark Kent, Alias Superman

"There was a bomb," said Lois, pointing at Clark, "he ate it!"

The hatch opened, and two men in black suits boarded Prometheus.

"You blew it, Clark," said Agent J. "Why can't you just live inconspicuously like other aliens?"

"Clark??" said Lois.

"Sorry folks," said K, flashing everyone with his neuralyzer. "There was a mechanical failure, the launch is postponed. We weren't here."

He led Clark outside, J dragged Lois behind them.

"Try this hero crap again and your residency permit's revoked," said K.

Clark sulkily spun into street clothes and said "okay."

"And get rid of the silly costume..."
