The start of the year typically sees a flood of 'prediction' articles where experts try to shed some light on what we, as the less enlightened, can expect from the forthcoming year.

Supervillains with Normal Jobs

Previously, we looked into what would become of some of our most beloved superheroes if they were to hang up their capes and instead opt for a safer, normal job.
