In comic books, you get used to seeing the status quo maintained. The hero has a secret identity, the villain will eventually be defeated, the hero has problems in their personal life because of their secret identity, etc. However, every now and then, something happens in a comic book storyline that switches up the flow of a story. It isnt necessarily permanent, but it gives the readers something new to look at and provides a breath of fresh air in a medium that prides itself on keeping certain ideas the same for many years. In this case, Im talking about when a hero or villain takes on a new profession. The most famous superheroes always have the alter-egos with the most memorable jobs. Clark Kent is a reporter for the Daily Planet, Bruce Wayne is the billionaire owner of Wayne Enterprises, Peter Parker is a photographer, Bruce Banner is a scientist, etc. To a lesser extent, the same can be said about villains as well. These evildoers didnt crawl out of the crib wanting to do bad. Before they began their life of crime, they had their own jobs, and if they kept their identities secret, they might still have those jobs. When Norman Osborn isnt ruining Spider-Mans life as the Green Goblin, he runs OsCorp Industries. Occasionally its even a supporting character who wants a change of pace. When the character in question takes on a new job or occupation, it opens up new avenues for the story to go down. Their reasons for taking a new job vary. Sometimes they want to try something new with their lives, sometimes they have no choice in the matter, and when it comes to the villains, its a safe bet that their new career is probably going to screw everyone else over. Either way, youre likely in for an unusual and possibly game-changing story, although most of the time the hero or villain will revert back to their normal status quo. With that said, here are the 10 most notable career changes that comic book characters have gone through.
