8 Jobs Superman Could Have Had If He Wasn’t A Journalist

Thanks to some of the many powers Superman has, we suggest several of the jobs that Clark Kent could do if he ends up getting kicked out of the Daily Planet.

We recently told you about the need that Clark Kent will soon have to find another job. In fact, at the end of said article, we have pointed out possible foot jobs to which he could devote himself without problems due to his particular abilities. The fact is that there are some of these superpowers that are known to everyone and, thanks to them, the man of steel could fit a myriad of jobs. However, there are other lesser-known powers that put Superman in a very good position to get one of the 9 Jobs Superman Could Have Had If He Wasn’t A Journalist and which we detail below.


We all remember when the Ventriloquists were the most anticipated show on weekend nights on Spanish domestic television. In our country we had Macario, Monchito and Rockefeller with his strange “take Moreno!” or Mari Carmen responding again and again to the “send?” of Dona Rogelia and his selective deafness. And, were there any ventriloquists in the comic world?

Without going any further, we have Superman, who during the Golden and Silver Ages had the ability to superventriloquism. With this ability, he could project his voice at another person with the intention of having other people believe it was said person speaking. In the first of the cartoons shown below, we see precisely that, after being asked how he managed to keep his voice from betraying him when impersonating him, Kal-El informs him that it was thanks to superventriloquism. Do you think Superman could buy dolls and make a living in theaters and TV shows?

Something the Last Son of Krypton can boast about is that he is a polyglot and fluent in every single language, not only on planet Earth, but in any extraterrestrial language as well. It doesn’t matter if you speak to him in Spanish, Urdu, French, Esperanto or Kryptonian, he understands it. On more than one occasion, he has already said that he listens to requests for help from all over the world and, as seen in the pictures, he speaks Russian in dead languages. And it’s not just the character, but the actor, Henry Cavill is also a polyglotsince it dominates, at least, English, French, Italian, Russian and Nepali.

Given this great ability, Kal-El could be an excellent translator or teacher of any language at an academy or college. Can you imagine reading a book or watching a Netflix series with the same Clark Kent as Translator? or what your English teacher (or Klingon) to be mr kent?

math teacher

We continue teaching, because the superhero of Metropolis could also be a great math teacher. This is shown in the cartoon that we see below in which, by estimating what a bean can weigh and what the pot that contains them weighs, he ends up guessing the amount of beans that the container contains in total . Additionally, he cocks a rooster saying, “Next request, please.”

And in football he would humble himself Messia mbappe Already Oliver Atom of Champions Yes Bachira Blue Lock (at the same time, with one leg tied up and having eaten a kryptonite omelet for breakfast).

As you know, all of us who follow small city back then, we loved watching him try to control his powers (sometimes unsuccessfully) to take part in a collective game such as American football, get to point to his institute team and become the starting quarterback. We want to see this prodigious pass, this footwork, this speed and this strength! Let’s take out the pompoms and clap! Give me a K, give me an E, give me an N, give me a T. Kent!
