    Not trying to diss fashion designers or socialites but would Jan's occupation in comics translate well to the big screen.
    A lot of the early women of the marvel universe have had their jobs tweaked to fit a more modern jobs and less 60s stereotypical ideas for the movies:



    Quote:
    Sue Storm: actress to scientist
    Jane: nurse to physicist
    Jean Grey: model to doctor
    Pepper Potts: secretary to Admininstrative executive to CEO

    Even the Earths mightiest heroes cartoon got around this by having Jan be the youngest Avenger (being a grad college student who works with one of the professors of her college setting grants up for his projects)

    I not sure having a fashionista fight battles alongside government assassins, soldiers, mutated nuclear physicist, genius billionaire inventors and other dimensional beings is enough for even the movie going public to follow.


To me it depends on what personality you give her.

If you want Jan to be a loving, caring person (an aspect that is there)...don't make her a fashionista (I hate that word SO much). Her father was a scientist so you could have her continuing his work.

If you want Jan to be a snarky self-absorbed diva by all means make her a fashion designer or socialite or something. I'm not saying that is a negative though. Jan being a stuck up bitch with snappy one liners might be great.

I just don't want her to be a rich fashion icon who is also Mother Theresa. For god sakes don't turn Jan into a philanthropist.

    But change that and you change aspects of Jan's personality that make her unique.
