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

Thanks to some of the many powers that Superman has, we suggest several of the jobs that Clark Kent could dedicate himself to if he ended up being kicked out of the Daily Planet

We recently talked to you about the need that Clark Kent will soon have to find another job. In fact, at the end of said article we pointed out possible foot jobs that he could dedicate himself to without problem due to his special abilities. The fact is that there are some of these superpowers that are known to all and, thanks to them, the Man of Steel could fit a myriad of jobs. However, there are other not so well known powers that position Superman in a very good place to get one of the 9 Jobs Superman Could Have Had If He Weren’t A Journalist and that we detail below.


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

Without going any further, we have Superman, who during the Golden and Silver Age had the ability to superventriloquism. With this ability he could project his voice onto another person with the intention that other people would believe that it was said person who was speaking. In the first of the cartoons shown below we see precisely that, after being asked how he managed so that his voice did not give him away when he impersonated him, Kal-El informs him that it was thanks to superventriloquism. Do you think Superman could buy some dolls and earn a living in theaters and television shows?


Something that the last son of Krypton can boast of is that he is a polyglot and is fluent in each and every one of the languages, not only on planet Earth, but also in any extraterrestrial language. 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 everyone’s requests for help and, as we see in the images, he speaks from Russian to dead languages. And he is not only 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 in 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 Professor of English (or Klingon) be mr kent?

Math teacher

We continue with the teaching, because the superhero from 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 jar that contains them weighs, he ends up guessing the amount of beans that the container contains in total. In addition, he makes the cocky saying: “Next request, please.”

How good it would have been for me to have had Superman as math teacher!

Football player

Actually, in any sport that Superman wanted to practice, he would be number 1. Let’s imagine that he wanted to run marathons… he would finish it before the best runner in the 100-meter dash. In the high jump, they would have to set the bar several kilometers away and, even so, he would not require any effort. And in football he would humiliate himself Messia mbappe Already Oliver Atom of Champions Y Blue Lock Bachira (at the same time, with one leg tied and having eaten a kryptonite omelette for breakfast). However, I think it is acceptable that if Clark leaves journalism, he returns to his roots in the world of sports and dedicates himself to football.

As you know, all of us who follow smallville back in the day, we loved watching him try to control his powers (sometimes unsuccessfully) to fit in a collective game like American football, getting to point to the team of his institute and becoming the starting quarterback. We want to see that prodigious pass, that footwork, that speed and that strength again! Let’s break out the pom poms and get cheering! Give me a K, give me an E, give me an N, give me a T. Kent!

Builder / Mason

There is no doubt that Superman would make a great builder or mason if his contract ran out on the Daily Planet. He has super strength, which would make him able to carry weights effortlessly. The company would save on scaffolding, because the façade arrangements would be suspended in the air, but what more than one sure did not remember is that it has the ability to repair anything instantly.

It seems that through his eyes not only his calorific and destructive ray comes out, but a repairing ray that the bearded man from Bricomania would like. Where have we seen that? in the forgettable Superman IVin which we see the Man of Steel chase to China what is possibly the worst villain in all of the Kryptonian filmography, namely the Nuclear Manwho starts to destroy the big Wall causing damage that seems irreparable. However, as we see in the video below, Superman, after saving a tourist, dedicates himself to repairing the ruined wall with a mysterious beam of blue light that comes out of his eyes.

Rare superpower where they exist, but extremely useful to use in a construction company. Construcciones La Casa De EL, I’ll repair it for you in a jiffy.

We continue with the repairs. And we continue with the eyes of the famous Kryptonian. If he has to be lethal with the bolts that shoot out of his eyes, he can cause a lot of damage and destruction, however, when he has to use them to repair, he does a world-class job.

And if not, tell Christopher Reeve, who in Superman III He flew to repair the leak that a ship had spilled all the oil into the sea. Greenpeace would be proud of this work of the Kryptonian, who with his super breath returned the spilled crude to the tank of the ship (yes, he hit the hole right and did not spill any water, only oil) and He welded the gap with his heat vision. A job out of 10. My wife, who is a welder, rates this job as outstanding. Who wants to hire a Kryptonian for their welding company?


Let Giorgio Armani tremble that Clark Kent is coming, creating trends with the latest outfits that he has made himself. Have we gone crazy? Could Superman also be a famous dressmaker? Since we know that something like this requires an explanation, let’s go there.

If anyone knows how to propose to his beloved, it’s Superman.. During the Golden Age, Superman wanted to ask for Lois’s hand in a big way. After getting the silk threads for Helen of Troy’s wedding dress and getting Cleopatra’s ring, which she borrowed from a pyramid, as well as a bouquet of flowers collected from the Garden of Eden, he proposed to Lois Lane. But not content with that he made himself a custom dress for his beloved with the new superpower, that of super weaveras we see in the following bullet.

In the field of medicine, Superman would also have a great future. And, in this case, the eyes of the Man of Steel are once again the protagonists, since thanks to his X-ray vision he is capable of making the best diagnoses and, furthermore, without the need for expensive machines.

The best known case is in the first movie of Christopher Reeve from 1978, when Lois interviews Kal-El on the rooftop and when he starts smoking and recommends that he quit tobacco, he observes his lungs to confirm that, for the moment, they are healthy.

Where you really see what excellent skills Clark could have as a radiologist, however, is in the next vignette. As can be read, the doctor states that his patient has glass embedded in his brain but his X-ray machine is not capable of revealing the location of the splinter, so they cannot operate. After this, Superman reassures him saying that they do not have to worry, since his X-ray vision has a greater range than any machine in the hospital and, after examining him, tells the doctor that he has already found the splinter and can prepare to operate. Definitely, Superman would be the best radiologist.


So far the selection of jobs that Superman could try if he ran out of his position at the Daily Planet. The truth is that with those skills, he surely won’t be unemployed for long. Can you think of any other suitable employment for Kal-El?
