What Would Superheroes Do For Part-Time Jobs?



[View All on One Page]

Artist Chow Hon Lam has explored what famous heroes would do if they had to use their powers to get a little extra cash in this series called Part Time Job. I have to say, Batman is my favorite.

    This is super cute, needs to be a Qwertee/TeeFury thing! The idea of superhero part time jobs also came up in Young Avengers Vol. 2 #6, when Speed builds things really quickly and Prodigy does customer support for disasters :P

    1) Any society not contributing massive amounts of funds to an Avengers or Justice League corps is idiotic. Thus they would not need “employment”
    2) Most, if not all, of the Superheroes have a) genius level intelligence b) already a millionaire/billionaire c) skills that are easily transformed in large amounts of cash in short order, see a and b
    3) Super powers should never be used for things that the “normals” around them can do on their own. One for example, would never use Flash to deliver simple mail or ask Superman to weld two pieces of metal together with his heat vision.

    The Batman one kind of ruins it for me.

    It’s not like Iron Man needs a job, either.

    Spider Man would make the worst tennis rackets because the balls would stick.

    Has Flash not learned his lesson about running with food?

    Has he forgotten the Pringles Incident?

    I am at a site named “themarysue” pontificating about social welfare for Superheroes. … because I do not like fun, lol.

    I do agree with you that we can’t have superheroes stealing all the jobs from regular, hard-working, red-blooded Americans

    Regular. Hard-working. Red-blooded. These Americans are found only in the comics.
