what do you think some superheros/villains would be doing if their powers had NOT manifested and joined their respective teams [if applicable]?

i picture kitty being president/owner/ceo of her fathers bank and having branches all over cook county and possibly surrounding areas and being the genius that she is would not need a government bailout

I'm going to go with a relatively easy one; Carol Danvers. She would most likely still be in the Air Force, and probably a Brigadier/Major/Lieutenant General by now.

Dr. Stephen Strange ...would be a homeless person still wallowing in the streets.

The turtles (Michaelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael) would be living an uneventful turtle life doing turtle things in the sewers of the city.

Steve Rogers probably ended up working for some advertising firm ala Madmen since that era would just be starting.

I could see Magneto being a teacher if he never became a mutant.

Matt Murdock would be a lawyer regardless.

Toad would be a used car salesman.

If he hadn't become Two Face, D.A. Harvey Dent would have gone on to be mayor of Gotham City, and would have continued having a long and successful political career after that.

Storm would be a botanist.

Beast would be a famous scientist on par with Reed Richards. I guess it could be argued that he already is, but I think he is generally portrayed as being infamous as a mutant scientist rather than as a famous and successful scientist.

Domino would be dead because her luck would run out.

Kyle Rayner would be an artist struggling to make a living.

Hal Jordan would probably be dead because of a stupid stunt he would pull due to his "fearless" nature.

Cyborg would be a professional athlete of some sort. Probably either an Olympic track runner or RB or QB in the NFL.

Jason Todd would be a small time thief.

If Bruce Wayne's parents hadn't died, he would have inherited his father's company and would have been the eccentric billionaire that he pretends to be.

If James Howlett survived both his constant sickliness as a child, and the attack that Thomas and Dog Logan made on his family in Origin, then he probably would have inherited the Howlett fortune and become owner of that ranch and lived a relatively happy life, possibly married to Rose.

Tony would never have learned that life-altering lesson and partied with ladies every hour on the hour.

The Specter would never have been forgiven in the first place and continued to be a fallen angel.

Johnny Blaze would perhaps die a dare-devil legend in some grand fiery demise.

John Stewart would be doing architecture as a full-time deal.

Bruce Banner would have gone on as a quietly furious man, receiving acclaim and awards for the revolutionary invention of the Gamma Bomb. He'd continue developing bombs and weaponry for the military, and gone on to marry Betty. Unfortunately, without Bruce's gamma irradiated blood, and the Hulk transformation it brought, his cousin, Jennifer Walters, would die due to the gunshot wounds that would have led her to become She-Hulk. This pressure, along with Betty constantly worrying about her father, whose gone on to fight in Iraq, would lead to Bruce finally snapping and striking, if not killing, Betty. On the run from the police, and General Ross personally, Bruce would end up in much the same situation, only without the Hulk to save him.

Bruce has commented a few times, and it's even been shown, that without the Hulk, Bruce's repressed rage would have ended up leading him down a dark path. Without a great purpose, such as restraining the Hulk and keeping him from hurting people, Bruce's achievements would mean nothing to him, leading him to further anger and self loathing at doing nothing with his life.

A similar situation to Jason Blood and Etrigan in the New 52.

Oh, and Peter Parker would be a scientist with a decent job that he loved, probably with someplace like Horizon Labs. He would also be married to Mary Jane (and there would be nothing Mephisto or Quesada could do about it).

Ah, I see.
 
I am just saying I seem to remember her telling Storm that she had college courses at 13 in one of her first appearances actually, in Kittys early issues they would always make comments about her intelligence, I guess it is something that kind of died out. I would just imagine someone who would the background of having collegiate courses at a young age usually go onto to be astrophysicist or something

If the baby later named Clark Kent arrived on Earth with no powers, he would grow up in the midwest with two loving adopted parents, would have played football (but not most likely not had the physical attributes to go farther than high school football). He would have no need to pretend to be weak and introverted, so his career path as a quiet reporter for the Daily Planet would more likely be a tv reporting position leading to a news anchor, being that this would take place in the 1950's to 1970's, he would have been very respected. He would have had the confidence to date Lois Lane as himself. Due to his upbringing, he would have married and had children with her, later enjoying his grandchildren. (This is assuming that his species can conceive with our species).

Bruce Wayne would have been raised by two loving, well-adjusted, billionaire philantropists with hearts of platinum, making him a well-adjusted billionaire celebrity-statused icon. He'd use his fortune to actually clean up Gotham, with the money spent on Bat-things going to schools, wellness programs, drug prevention, police affairs, infrastructure, and job stability (plus the money he already donates).
