This is my first career and I have been working to test out the chance cards, promotions, etc. It was a lot of fun to write and hopefully it will be fun to play. I played with a lot of comic book conventions for heroes and their supporting cast.

This is a career for Adults and does not have a 'teen' level.

Male Career Levels:
Innocent Bystander
You seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time pretty frequently. You've been pulled out of the way twice while watching a supervillain tear apart the city. Learn to watch where you're going and pay attention to your surroundings and maybe you'll become more than just the innocent bystander.
Hours: Mon, Wed, Sat: 2p-6p, Pay: $150/day

Mail Room Employee
You've improved your powers of observation and have been promoted to working in the mail room of The Daily Inquisitor, the number one source for information in the city. It's not much, but everyone's got to start somewhere. Work on your physique and logic and maybe there's a promotion in your future.
Hours: Mon-Fri 9a-5p, Pay: $250/day

Freelance Photographer
You've been noticed. A photo of one of the city's heroes caught the attention of the Inquisitor's editor. The bad news? You're now a freelancer, so you no longer have benefits or regular pay. But on the bright side, you're out capturing the action.
Hours: Sun-Tue, Th, Sat, 10am-4pm, Pay: $350/day

Staff Photographer
You've risked your neck more than once to get that perfect shot for the cover of The Inquisitor and it's finally paid off. You're now a staff photographer. Sure, no one listens to your opinions, but your foot is in the door.
Hours: Mon-Fri, 9a-5p, Pay: $450/day

Daily Inquisitor Reporter
Great news! You followed a lead on a story about an underground crime ring and it paid off. Sure, you almost died while following the lead, but you were saved just in time by The Stunner, one of the city's top heroes. The bad news is that you'll be in even more life-threatening situations. The good news? The Stunner seemed to notice you when saving you.
Hours: Mon-Fri 9a-5p, Pay: $700/day

Man-sel in Distress
The Stunner definitely noticed you. Your job has taken you into more risks than you can count, and the Stunner has always been there to save you. The downside? You really wish you could just save yourself and take your guardian angel out on a normal dinner date.
Hours: Mon-Fri 2p-6p, Pay: $810/day

Sidekick
While following a story, you accidentally fell into a vat of radioactive waste. Lucky for you, it gave you superpowers. You've decided to use those powers for the forces of good and you seek out Powerman. You help him out with a pretty tough fight and he takes you under his wing.
Hours: Sun, Tues, Fri-Sat 10p-7a, Pay: $925/day

Vigilante
After a falling-out with Powerman, you decide to go it alone. Your quest for justice veers into a quest for vengeance when The Stunner is murdered by Dr. Evil. You've had a few run-ins with The Honor Guild, and those you want to save are sometimes more afraid than grateful to see you.
Hours: Sun, Tues, Fri-Sat 10p-4am, Pay: $1050/day

Second-String Hero
You've cleaned up your act and mended fences with Powerman. You don't have the full trust of the Guild, but they've let you in on a temporary basis. You'll also need to develop your powers more fully before you can become one of the core members.
Hours: Sun, Tues, Fri-Sat 8p-5am, $1400/day

City Protector
Powerman has retired and left the city in your care. You're now one of the core members of the Honor Guild, and the main protector for the city. You have keys to the city, and the trust and love of all of the law-abiding citizens. If you can just keep the super-villains away from your new love, you just might live happily ever after.
Hours: Mon, Wed, Fri 10a-7p, Pay: $2250/day

Unique GUID, so it won't overwrite any careers

I spent a lot of time on the chance cards and increased the chances of them popping up as they really tell the story of this career and your Sim's progress from 'zero' to hero.

Feedback would be very much appreciated!
