Fictional Jobs I’d Want to Have

This topic took a little more time than expected, but I loved having to brainstorm about some of my favourite fictional worlds and the jobs relative to them. I largely selected jobs based on what I think I’d enjoy and what looked to be a lot of fun.. but I do think I eventually complied a list of jobs that I would both enjoy and be (relatively) good at!

1. Shadowhunter (Inspired by Isabelle Light from Shadowhunters TV Series)

I stopped watching Shadowhunters for a while as I was pretty unsatisfied with where the show was going. But yesterday I picked up from where I left off early on in season two and absolutely binged watched all the episodes. Essentially this rekindled my love for the show and primarily for Isabelle because to me, she is what makes being a Shadowhunter look like fun.

2. Oompa Loompa (Inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) 

It probably makes me a pretty bad vegan to say I’d like to be an Oompa Loompa… but I don’t think I’m in any minority when I say food and theme parks are some of the many things that I love. To combine the two and have it be my day to day job to experiment with sweets would be pretty epic.

3. Meta-Human CSI Expert (Inspired by Julian Albert from The Flash TV Series)

I thought long and hard about a ‘fictional job’ actually existed within The Flash world, because a lot of the main characters actually have jobs that are rooted within the real world. But alas – thanks to Julian Albert (a new character in S3) I have found my way into Team Flash! Although it would be awesome to be a meta-human expert, I was trying to find a job in this universe largely so I could work with all the characters on Team Flash.

4. Dragonologist (Inspired by Charlie Weasley from The Harry Potter Series)

I really think this goes without explanation!

5. Dinosaur Researcher (Inspired by Owen Grady from Jurassic World)

Simiarly to a Dragonologist, being a Dinosaur Researcher would be equally exciting (perhaps Dinosaur Researcher more so because the Jurassic Park franchise was my first favourite series ever.) I love animals and have thought about working in an industry that relates to animals… dinosaurs and dragons would suit me perfectly!

Spoiler Free Review

Graphic Novels | Superheroes | DC Comics

My Rating: ★★★★☆

I was pretty impressed upon finishing Justice League, Volume 3: Throne of Atlantis. I am definitely aware of the mixed reviews towards this graphic novel, but personally this volume really appealed to my reading tastes.

I’ll start my review of with a brief history of my reading experience with this series thus far:

Justice League, Volume 1: Origin – I gave ★★★☆☆. I wasn’t totally enthralled whilst reading, nor did this volume excite me about the series. However I thought it was a solid beginning and I therefore gave it a chance and decided to continue with the series.

Justice League, Volume 2: The Villain’s Journey – I gave ★★☆☆☆ and was honestly less than impressed with. I wasn’t a fan of the quarrel’s within the League, I really wanted (and expected) them to start working as a team more. The plot felt like it jumped around too much and there was also a noticeable discrepancy between the character’s ‘screen’ time, so to speak.

However I had a complete change of heart with Justice League, Volume 3: Throne of Atlantis because I pretty much loved it. (I don’t want to hype it up too much for anyone as this could be a real fluke.)

Within the first couple of pages of this volume I felt like I noticed a huge improvement with the quality of story-telling. It felt a lot cleaner and easier to follow. This may be because the characters actually started to get along more and it was apparent they shared a mutual goal.

I will criticise the plot slightly and say the first chapters or so really go against the grain of the title, as it has nothing to do with Atlantis. I think this was worth mentioning as it may mislead some people. But personally it did entertain me, as I have not yet read a comic with Cheetah and was excited to learn more about her relationship with Diana. Not to mention it really exhibited the growth of the team and their willingness and wantingness (whoops that’s not a word) to help each other out and work together.

As well as this, I loved the involvement of Atlantis in this series because aside from this comic series, I know very little about Aquaman and Atlantis. [This could be why I liked it so much.]

Secondly, I thought the characters were much more likeable – which was largely due to the fact that they wanted to work together more. Aside from the weird absence of The Flash, [whom is my favourite 😥 and I can’t recall if this absence was explained…] I felt like there was more of a balance between the characters ‘screen’ time.

I truly can’t wait to start the next volume in the series, it was left on a great cliffhanger and I can’t wait to see which characters [villainous and otherwise] that will be introduced!
