Say your worst nightmare came true and the X-Men disbanded.

Sure, the comic books would suffer, but think of the career opportunities open to a group of mutants with such incredible talents...

Sunspot - Sustainable Energy Provider

With his unique aptitude for solar absorption and release, Sunspot would be invaluable to the green energy effort, providing heating for millions without drawing on the Earth's fossil fuels.

Toad - Circus Performer

No, not one of those cruel, old-fashioned freak circuses. Toad's agility and acrobatic tongue skills could land him a job with the real professionals - I'm thinking Cirque du Soleil or the Moscow State Circus.

Blink - Exotic Tour Guide


  
  
  
  Blink and you'll miss her
Blink and you'll miss her

Bear with me on this one. Blink has the power to instantly teleport herself and others to another place, in an instant. Plus, with her fighting powers, nobody would mess with her group. She could take you anywhere in the world (for a fee).

Beast - Scientist


  
  
  
  Hank has skills in both his humanoid and Beast form

Obviously, Beast is a scientist already, but if the mutant cause were no longer an issue, I see Beast using his genius for the greater good: research into life-saving medicines and distributing new pharmaceuticals to poor countries would utilise his brain and his kind heart.

Iceman - Humanitarian Aid Worker


  
  
  
  Bobby Drake: the end to world drought.
Bobby Drake: the end to world drought.

Iceman is able to create ice as well as control it, meaning that he could travel to places suffering from drought - maybe with the help of tour guide Blink - and solve their problems in an instant. He could even fix the polar ice caps!

Kitty Pryde - The Best Spy The World Has Ever Seen

Ellen Page as Shadowcat

OK, so Shadowcat as a spy would be so awesome she could carry a whole movie on her own. Obviously, she can walk through walls - always handy for espionage - but she's also a talented linguist for undercover work, a great fighter, and she has computer skills that put top hackers to shame.

-------------------------------------------------

Warpath - Survivalist

Warpath in Days of Future Past
Warpath in Days of Future Past

Warpath has the whole package: he's strong, fast and skilled, meaning that there's very few environments he would not thrive in. He could be an explorer, or even train up SAS recruits (though it's doubtful that anyone other than Wolverine could keep up with him in a test of endurance).

-------------------------------------------------

Colossus - Architectural Supervisor


  
  
  
  Colossus gives new meaning to the phrase 'solid guy'
Colossus gives new meaning to the phrase 'solid guy'

In the comic books, Colossus actually does work as a builder and artist, following a spell of amnesia. He's artistic and authoritative with experience in the field of construction - plus, he'd be kept safe from any work-related injuries by his super strength and invulnerable metal form.

What jobs could you see the other X-Men working if they weren't saving our puny human butts from extinction all day?
