Powers and Abilities

Clark's Semblance is Sun Empowerment. it gives him super strength, speed, heat vision and flight. According to him, his Semblance can only work from the light of the yellow sun meaning that during the night time he can't use his Semblance and according to his knowledge he can't store the sunlight up to use his Semblance during the nighttime. It is described as letting him do anything that Dust can, although it is unknown whether it allows him to mimic the elemental abilities of Dust, or if the statement merely refers to the use of Dust as an energy source.

With this power, Clark is considered second only to Jessica Cruz in the Justice League.

History

Sometime in the past, Clark once worked in Dust mines, being manipulated to work a contract that left him too weak to move. There, he was saved by Arthur Curry.

Clark became acquainted with Taiyang Xiao-Long under unknown circumstances and began to help him out with his farm work in Patch after his daughters went to Beacon. After Clark had awakened his Aura and Semblance, people were scared of him and his newfound power. He meets Ruby and Yang whilst they return home from Beacon on their break between semesters, explains his Semblance and later helps the two sisters picking brambleberries when three Neon Grimm attack Ruby and hypnotize Clark into fighting Ruby. After the trance was broken Clark was revealed to be able to float/fly.

Following this Clark went with Ruby and Yang back to Beacon where he met Professor Ozpin, Weiss, Blake, Diana and Bruce and learned that Team JNPR alongside students with powerful Semblances had been vanishing all over Remnant. He gets nervous when asked by Weiss about accompanying her to the Schnee Laboratory and ends up partnered with Yang and Blake to investigate the Harbor of Vale.

Clark reencounters Arthur when investigating disappearances throughout Vale's harbors. Arthur, who believed them to be the cause of this, used his power to discern their weaknesses and strengths and attacked. However, the group was attacked by mind-controlled sea creatures, and they joined forces to drive them back – Clark being unable to help due to his Semblance not functioning at night. After this, Clark asks Arthur if he recognized him, the latter of the two admits he does as he recalls saving him once but having to leave him. Clark then explainis what was going on regarding the kidnappings with Arthur willing to accept it, and even reveals his Semblance as a sign of trust. The group then apologize with Arthur then going with them, all of them unaware of a group of mind-controlled Faunus hidden in the water.

Followed by the mind-controlled Faunus, the trio would reconvene with the remainder of Team RWBY and the rest of the Justice League in Vale. There, they were attacked by mind-controlled enemies: the Faunus following them, Team JNPR, and a Tentacle Grimm who all wore distinct masks. Quickly being overwhelmed, they are rescued by the Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz. After making an escape, Jessica explains her origin and reveals the existence of the alien conqueror, Starro, and his plans of world domination to the group as she shows a hologram of the universe, Remnant included. There, she enlists their help in stopping Starro, explaining Starro's intent to conquer the world through the use of powerful Semblances and the might of the Atlas Military.

Shortly after, Arthur takes the group to Atlantis, a city lost to time which is his home. There, they have a moment to rest while Arthur gathers intel from spies in Atlantis, discovering that Starro has aligned with Mr. Lloyd, and the two plan on taking the Dust weaponry to a hanger on the coast of Atlas. The group spends on last night in Atlantis to prepare and enjoy themselves, and in the next morning, set off for Atlas to face Starro.

Given how none of Team RWBY or most of the Justice League can fight in deep waters, the team hatches a plan to defeat Starro. Diana, being one of the few who can survive underwater, attacks Starro without being alerted due to being an Automaton, who does not register as human. With that, Arthur and Blake Belladonna draw Starro's forces to battle, where Victor Stone disables them with his technomancy Semblance. As the fight between Starro's forces and the Justice League wages, Starro calls on Team JNPR to provide himself aid.

As the Justice League’s battle against Starro continues, a mind-controlled Team JNPR joins the fray and does battle with their friends, Team RWBY. During the fight, Jessica Cruz’s mind is taken hold by Starro as she tries to help RWBY, and she begins to attack them. As the strongest member of the Justice League, Jessica uses her powers of creation to create images of Raven Branwen, Summer Rose, Adam Taurus, and Jacques Schnee to distract Team RWBY, and the various origins of the members of the Justice League.  The Trinity of the Justice League escape the fight, and lure Starro into a Dust hanger off the coast of Atlas, exploding it with Starro inside, freeing the mind controlled victims.
