So Kim Davis refuses to give people of the gay community marriage licenses because of her religious beliefs? Well, fun fact, here at kronosspeakeasy.com, we are equal opportunity people. A few of us have walked in the pride parade in support of our family and friends and continue defend their right to love each other and get married. Anyway, as the memes started coming out, I made one of Wolverine that said "Hated Cyclops. Still did his job". It got me thinking, what other comic book characters hate their bosses or their jobs, but still did them anyway? Here are five great examples
For those of you who didn't know, Wolverine absolutely hated Cyclops for years. He didn't think Cyclops was tough, he looked like a pretty boy, and to top it off, he was dating the woman he wanted. But when the chips were down, Wovlerine would follow Cyclops into Hell if that is what Cyclops needed him to do. It was Wolverine's job to be that guy and while he didn't always like or agree with it, he did it anyway. You're thinking, "But wait, Mark, what about Schism?". Well guess what Wolverine did when he no longer could do the job he was required to do? He quit.
2. Wakandan Advisors and Military:
T'Challa is a dick. He was the "Do as I say or find another means of employment" kind of ruler. You don't question T'Challa because his plans are his own and any changes will mess things up. It's easy to see how this way of thinking could make the people under him upset. Funny thing is while they may not see where he is going, T'Challa always comes through and deep down they knew he would succeed. His plans may be unorthodox and sometimes may seem irrational, but he makes these plans knowing that only good will come from them.
Norrin Radd made a deal with the World Eater Galactus in order to save his home planet. He left behind his people and more importantly the love of his life and became Galactus' herald The Silver Surfer. This deal meant that he would search the galaxy for planets that Galactus could devour. Surfer did so with a heavy heart, but also knowing that he was saving the lives of his people kept him going. Once Radd realized the era of his ways, he quit. Radd would leave and go back to Galactus like a lost ex, but again, he did his job.
4. The Fantastic Four:
Like any family, you are going to have disagreements. It's par for the course. For the Fantastic Four, the biggest disagreement was easily Civil War. Reed had his equations on how the world was going to end up and saw the value of registration, Ben Grimm was on the fence understanding why the law may have been bogus but needed to be obeyed and still thinking it was wrong, and Sue and Johnny both fought for the law until their friend was killed by a creation of Reed Richards. But they did the one thing you are supposed to do when you can't work with someone anymore.
When you are faced with doing your job or going against your morals, you either do your job or get another one. Ben left, Reed stayed, and Johnny and Sue went and fought with Cap. Instead of staying and refusing to fight or support something they didn't agree with, they left. And after everything was said and done, they came to an agreement and went on about their lives.
5. Anyone who has worked for Nick Fury ever:
Whether it's white Nick Fury, Ultimate Nick Fury, or Nick Fury's kid who's calling himself Nick Fury, anyone who has worked with them at some point in time was not happy about it. He lies, he cheats, he deceives, he kills, and will sell his mother's soul to Mephisto if it meant that the world would keep on spinning. But people believe in Nick Fury so they follow him? Why? Because he lies so his team has plausible deniability. He deceives so his people don't know what they did so they can sleep better at night, he kills so others won't die, and he will sell his mother's soul so you don't have to. And when people got tired of him, they left. But they will always be grateful because they always had the option to leave.
Basically, like the fictional world, if you don't like your job and you can't abide by the rules, quit or do your job.
