What is a good profession for a modern-day villain?

Answer via comments on this blog, mentions on Twitter, or Facebook and I’ll keep the comments here updated with your responses. Please no repeats, post something that hasn’t been said!

Just post something – It doesn’t matter how “good” the idea is, the purpose of the brainstorm is to get ideas of all kinds.

We’ll be taking these ideas and applying them in a later blog. Looking forward to the list!
