When the world hits an economic crisis one can only call on the abilities of a superhero. They tend to grapple life with extremities that can only make reality look all too simple. From a super intelligent and wealthy man made of Iron, to an Army solider that protected a nation with a Shield and of course the Thought provoking antics of one Professor Xavier…these super powered individuals have taken an alternate route in managing an economic crisis!

From a man with an explosive eye named Cyclops to a lady called Jean Grey who has amazing telepathic capabilities, the X-Men team is not just powerful but are remarkable too. Add a gentleman with wavy blue locks called the Beast who has super animal like strength, throw him alongside the commanding Wolverine with his razor sharp claws and you have a well rounded X-Men team that are not only built to saving the world from nasty villains but also have everyday skills which help them deal with life outside of the X-Men headquarters! We dug a little deeper into how they manage to keep ahead of the pack in today’s busy world.

So, you think that being able to leap tall buildings and possess super powers is cool? Well, we do too! Yeah that’s right, we're talking superheros, a die-hard conversation that never gets old. But next time you’re in trouble and a superhero helps you out, think about what they are doing before…You know, when they aren't out saving the city, the world or even the universe. Usually they are earning an income just like we have to, or will have to one day, and some of them even went to University!

First it was Spider-man, then Daredevil and that was followed up by the Incredible Hulk! Now its time for the Fantastic Four!
 
When they are not fighting crime and saving the world or the universe for that matter from some kind of comic book evil, the team of Mister Fantastic, the Thing, the Invisible Woman and the Human Torch, still have to keep up their day-to-day existence in the real world on a normal level. Well normal to an extent, who wouldn’t use the ability to stretch their limbs an extra bit to catch a falling glass of Orange Juice (Mister Fantastic ), or in the case of the Human Torch fly to work to beat early morning rush hour! Sure being a Superhero does have its perks, but lets not mess around in today’s economic climate we all need to pay the bills somehow. Because saving the world from an intergalactic attack force doesn’t really pay much.
