It used to be that careers like stand-up comedian, or chef, were things you fell into, not careers you actively sought out. Same for Costumed Vigilantes. (super-heroes). But now you can major in crimefighting at Gotham State, Metropolis U, and University of Florida. Summer camps have sprung up for well-off children, where they learn to shoot bows, throw arrows, ride zip lines, and hack police computers. You can hire consultants who will organize teams, come up with costumes and code-names, and find support staff (butlers, drivers, pilots) who are former black ops and and able to make dinner whilst you brood.
