Not all that mature - Marvel Adventures Super Heroes #5
90's Version

You can go to either the DC or Marvel universes. You have zero powers but you do have your memories of the real world. Who do you work for and why?

You have to pick a super villain for a boss. It can even be a low end villain like Rhino or even Harley for crying out loud (that would be fun to say the least, she's never been a boss so it would be fun to see what she would do with that power}.

Who would you AVOID working for at all costs? : )

Harley did have a gang in her series..

Anyways, I'll choose The Riddler, why? Well..good question..(No pun indeed.)

Hmmm, I guess I'd choose to work for Lex Luthor or the Penguin, at least I'd get paid reasonably, and I would absolutely never work for the Joker.

Lex or anyone with a giant company/organization. Easy to get lost & have little responsibility (and you'd never be in the position to screw up so badly you'd get killed - just fired at worst).

If you fail Lex (probably likely...you VS Supes? Really?} I don't think he is gonna save your behind from the beating you will take. : )

@lorbo: I doubt any villain will TRULY save you if you fall down before a hero...maybe Magneto...maybe, so it wouldn't matter anyway, and plus if I work for Lex, I'd at least have some good weaponry with me, top notch stuff, and even if I lose to Superman, at least I can say I fought Superman.

Take this for one size... your almost better off working for a supervillain than being Batman's Robin. Why you ask?

Have you ever wondered why Bat's has his sidekicks wear bright flashy colors while he always wears black? And you wonder why he never gets shot but his sidekicks keep getting killed or injured LOL.

You have a better survival rate working with Magneto than Bats any day. So long you don't tick Mags off, which is actually kind of hard to do. By now he could have soloed Wolverine but won't cause he's a nice guy at heart.

Riddler for sure.

M.O.D.O.K. I don't why? I guess I really want one of those yellow beekeeper outfits those A.I.M. guys wear.

#19 Edited by lorbo (1541 posts) - - Show Bio

I have always thought working for Killer Croc or Rhino would be interesting. Rumor is they are both as dumb as rocks. If that is the case, you could really be the boss even though they think they are LOL.

You could have them do all the work you don't wanna do. : )

With them thinking your doing THEM a favor the whole time LOL.

Sadly the arrangement might not last long because I for see your partner getting soloed waay before you even though you lack superpowers. : )

Penguin. He's not insane, I'll get to wear nice suits, and he doesn't really ask for too much. I bet he pays well, too.

Hell, if I'm good enough, he'll put me in charge in his absence.

Hmmm...didn't he used to be fat? New 52 is trying to make even Penguin sexy? You have got to be kidding me LOL?

@lorbo: That's not the Penguin. It's his best henchman, whom he put in charge while he was away.

Probably go with Talia al Ghul for 2 reasons:

1. I'll be a deadly assassin.

2. Good looking boss.

P.S. Just got to call in sick when Batman is in town.

Haha, interesting question.

Well, the one villain who I'd wanna avoid would be the Joker. Aside from looking and being absolutely terrifying, I don't think his criminal enterprise has a HR department. He seems like the kind of villain to be just as likely to kill of henchmen as he would innocent civilians.

As for which villain I'd work for, it would probably go to Dr. Doom. Yeah he has the whole iron fist dictator ego thing going on, but aside from that he seems relatively stable recently, and Latveria's got like a zero crime rate. Plus his country has a totally b*tchin flag:

Hmm, working for a rich villain like Lex would have its perks, I bet.

I don't want to work for a poor villain, though.

Galactus, then I'd be his herald.

Doom.

I'd just get to sit back and watch Doom bots do all the work!

DOOM Or Lex Luther

#42 Posted by Yung ANcient One (4899 posts) - - Show Bio

I honestly think all villains who use henchmans, and have the power to eliminate you can, and will for failing them. I don't think they pay THAT well either. I always view it as a little bit over what our military personnel get. It would be a decent pay if you weren't risking your life so much.

If I had to choose since I'm uber strong, or can't find work I'd pick Ra's Al Ghul his knowledge is vast, and it be dope to be trained to be a assassin. I mean the training would suck, it would be literally hell on earth every training session, but the upside is my dream to go rogue. Besides that I'd pick Lex, and hopefully plan a way to steal some tech. Probably take me over a year though.

I would stay away from Joker, Black Mask, Two-Face, DOOM, and basically anyone that I've seen abuse their henchmen and/or eliminate them

I wouldn't really be anyone's henchman, but I could definitely be an assassin for Poison Ivy, Sinestro, Scarecrow, Harley Quinn or Bane. I feel like I could really get along with any of those guys/girls and I think I'd be willing to take a bullet for ivy, bane or quinn.

#45 Edited by BlueLantern1995 (2448 posts) - - Show Bio

I would choose someone who wouldn't betray me. So probably Galactus or Doctor Doom. You know what I like the idea of being Doctor Doom's henchmen...Make it happen LOL.

#46 Posted by Cap10nate (2737 posts) - - Show Bio

Definitely wouldn't be a henchman for anyone who is on the Punisher's radar. They are killed in droves.

#47 Posted by Joygirl (19955 posts) - - Show Bio

Harley did have henchmen... in fact, in her solo you actually see specific henchmen and learn about about henching in general. But as much as I love her I would not work for her, she killed most of her own guys. I'd probably go with Riddler or Penguin (if Penguin is "reasonable businessman Penguin" rather than "cutthroat maniac" Penguin). Lex is a good choice but there is too high of a chance of his entire building coming down. Joker is a no-no. Two-Face, one side of the coin ends with you dead.

#48 Posted by Spawn92 (285 posts) - - Show Bio

Sinestro. Do it for the power ring!

#49 Posted by joeagentofhand1 (4362 posts) - - Show Bio

Lex Luthor. Chances are he wont kill and you are likely to get paid.
