I'll readily admit that I had to look up how to spell vizier. I thought there was an o in there somewhere.

You should accept caretaker for Mr. Miyagi & pugilist for Rocky Balboa, for us not Americans

I agree on pugilist because I really had to think about what the other word was.

Are you serious? Maybe you're a non-native English speaker. The sport is called boxing everywhere. Even if for some reason you don't say boxer, everyone knows that's the most common name.

Seriously! Who knows pugilist but not boxer? Maybe they should accept hands to face and body technician. SMH

I agree with caretaker but I really doubt that anyone needs pugilist. In fact, the wikipedia page for pugilism redirects straight to the one for boxing.

Yeah; I have to declare a major misfire here! Pepper Potts has not been a secretary for a VERY long time. In the movies she is CEO of Stark Industries; in the comics she was the same, and although she left for a while, she came back and has held various executive positions with later incarnations and subsidiaries of Stark Industries.

In addition to "Corporate CEO", you should also accept "Superhero", as she has been one under the monikers "Rescue" as well as "Hera" in the comics.

Thanks, and GO PEPPER!

Even in the movies she started out as more than just a secretary. More like an executive assistant.

ComeOn, He claims he's a scientist, but he is not. A real scientist does not chase ghosts. And is not paid for it.

I tried so many variations of "mentor", "karate master", "sensei" for Mr Miyagi. Shows how much I remember of that film. In fact, I don't even remember if I've actually seen it.

I mistakenly remembered him as a gardener or painter ("paint the fence, up down"). Turns out to be more a jack of all those trades.

Rocky was also hired muscle for the neighborhood loan shark at the beginning of the first movie as well. In fact it is at least hinted at if not outright shown that being a goon is the primary way he earns a living.

Good that you accept professor for Jones, but shouldn't that also work for Venkman? I know Venkman got fired but so did Jones at one point. Also discovered that slave was accepted for Spartacus. And I got Miyagi when I typed in "super" on my way to typing in superhero. That's Kent's real job, the reporter thing is just his cover.

Finally, shouldn't "CEO" also work for Pepper Potts?

This time I tried "adult film actor" among other things for porn star and didn't get that one.
