Hi. I am writing a comic about streetfighting cats and dogs who fight crime. I am trying to figure out what jobs would my two main characters have - what jobs would be ideal for tough guys/ streetfighters?

I came up with:

Fitness/aerobics instructor or guru
gym manager
fitness coach
sparring partner
security guard
construction worker

What other jobs are ideal for tough guys/ streetfighters?

I am open to suggestions - please list as many as you can. Thank you.

@djjd62,
I cant detect a spot of creativity in this guy. Sad really, like a parachutist who's afraid of heights

@farmerman,
true, in many comic books the basic street bad guys work the docks or crappy gyms (batman, superman, daredevil, spider man, the punisher), anyone who knows their comics (and he's wondered if there's such a job as comic historian) should know this, i mean look at the type of businesses the mob is involved in

Thank you - bartender would work in an Old West setting or some other Western/country setting.

What kind of driver are you talking about?

Fitness coach or gym instructor or gym manager is ideal- a lot of tough guys are conscientious about their health and physique.

I went elsewhere and was told by three different people:

You can include the profession of a bodyguard, hunter or an animal trainer since most of them are tough. You can also include the option of a bully or leader who is cruel and has mean characters or leadership skills, more like a dictator. Another option is that of a mean teacher or instructor maybe on how to behave in the comic setting or one who gives rules on where the characters should or shouldn't go to or things they can't do.

Some of your ideas are great. How about these: bouncers, loan sharks,street gang leaders,angry cops,football players,boxers,wrestlers,crooked politicians, it depends on the target range for readers.

Someone in the military
detective

I already have some of these ideas.

What kinds of jobs require heavy lifting?

I think factory worker is a good job no one mentioned.

Why does he have to be a DIRTY cop? NOT all tough guys/streetfighters are bad.

Heavy mechanical assembly jobs requires heavy lifting. That sounds tough.

If you're someone's bodyguard, you're often their driver.

BOUNTY HUNTERS. That's a pretty tough job.

What about BUTCHERS? I would think they have to be brawny to be able to hang meat up in a meat locker.

Mr. Dog is human - he doesn't count.

@JGoldman10,
How do you know? Maybe he is able to count quite well.



Or are you saying that humans don't count as an entity?
