supers and society

Was contemplating the occupations of the superpowered, and how they are only a life of crime.. . .

Perhaps super-secret conspirators are churning out all those mad scientists and other demented types to keep them busy.  They're afraid of what would happen if those superpowers became useful applications.

Particularly, perhaps. to the employment rate.  That's where the impact would be immediate and obvious.

Ah super-powerful conspiracies.  Is there any trope they can't justify?
