The one profession I used to associate with superheroes -- aside from their superhero-ing, of course -- was journalism. Peter Parker (aka Spiderman) is a photographer for the Daily Bugle and Clark Kent (aka Superman, Kal-El of the planet Krypton) is a reporter for the Daily Planet.
But science-fiction/pop culture blog io9.com recently opened my eyes to the fact that science fiction and the superhero world is populated with brilliant legal minds who could best you in court in addition to giving you a thorough beating.
Check out the list -- which includes some Marvel superheroes, Joseph Adama (the father of Commander Bill Adama of the Battlestar Galactica), and Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law -- here.
As a Friday bonus, here's a fun clip of Harvey Birdman in court.
