Not Your Ordinary Superhero by Elycia Lee

Superheroes; something happens, girl in distress, villain on the loose, and superheroes are there to save the day. But have you ever wondered – what if we didn’t need superheroes to save the day? What if they were humans with superpowers, yet they lived life without being a hero?


  1. A)     If Superheroes Had Part-Time Jobs

Hulk: Help demolish buildings.

Mr Fantastic: Help pick fruits from taller trees.

Invisible Woman: Help magicians con people.

Storm: Work as a farmer and water the crops.

Ironman: Probably could help iron some clothes.

Human Torch: Replace ovens, and roast chicken.

Iceman: Make ice rinks, supply ice for restaurants.

Deadpool: He’d be a pretty good knife throwing assistant.

Spiderman: Make fishing nets, badminton nets and racquets.

Thor: He could use the hammer while working as a blacksmith.

Captain America: Use his shield as a platter while serving food.

Wolverine: Become a landscape gardener and cut hedges into nice shapes.

Cyclops:  Drill holes in walls or in the ground. Can help in renovating houses.

Flash: Pizza delivery! Or any food delivery and maybe even PosLaju. (mail delivery)

The Thing: Work at a construction site or help people while they move houses. Can work together with Hulk too.


Or perhaps, a little fusion between your favourite superheroes and… Pokemon?!


  1. B)      If Superheroes Were Pokemon

Flash: Zapdos.

Hulk: Machoke.

Iceman: Regice.

Hawkgirl: Staraptor.

Spiderman: Spinarak.

The Thing: Hariyama.

Wolverine: Sandslash.

Human Torch: Torchic!


Mr Fantastic: Tentacruel.

Batman: Zubat, obviously.

Ironman: Charmander? Ironmander, haha.

Invisible Woman: Kecleon. (but with Devon Scope, no longer invisible)

So, what are some other superheroes you know that could use their powers to advantage in a job, or what Pokemon are they similar to?
