* In ''Astonishing Comicbook/AntMan'', the Power Broker creates a smartphone app called "Hench," which is designed to help low-level supervillains find employes who want to hire their services. It's also shown that the villains behave like any real world profession, and even pay taxes. A group of baddies even tell a new villain to steer clear of ever working for the RedSkull, who has a habit of killing his underlings.

* ComicBook/Asterix: Quite a few Roman legionaries (at least those who aren't schemers or nationalists) are there to make some fast (and they thought easy) money and get on with their lives and don't care much about the indomitable village or revenge, attacking Gauls only to avoid punishment from their superiors (and in some cases preferring the punishment than the beatdown they will suffer from their intended victims).

* The ''{{Deadpool}}'' comic book upgrades the faceless minions of HYDRA into Punch Clock Villains, mostly through the info we receive from Deadpool's kidnapped [[strike:pet]] minion Bob, Agent of HYDRA. Through him we learn that some of the minions of HYDRA doesn't care about the take over the world agenda, they just can't find work anywhere else. They also fear and hate CaptainAmerica, Elektra and Wolverine. However, one downside of working for HYDRA is that they don't get dental insurance.

* {{ComicBook/X-Factor}} during Peter David's first run, a villain named Random trashed most of X-Factor as well as the illegal foreign immigrants they were protecting, without breaking a sweat. Then he casually mentioned he was getting two grand to return the [[IncrediblyLamePun X-Patriots]] to their country of origin, which is all he cared about, as a working stiff. Havok pointed out that X-Factor were working stiffs two, and wrote him a check for four thousand on his government expense account, and the battle was concluded amiably. "Pleasure doing business with you.

** Deadpool himself once stopped midway through a fight with Spider-Man when he realized he was off the clock. Though villain is a pretty harsh word, considering the fight at that point had degraded to a Yo Momma contest.
