    It's pretty common to hear people complaining about jobbing when we see a fight that theoretically should be a stomp end up as a competitive affair. But is this always a bad thing? Should fights be written in a logically rigorous fashion or is it better that writers flex the rules a bit, or even a lot, so as to make for a good fight?

    For myself I think I was a bit more of a "purist" back in the day but nowadays I think I see the merits of being a bit more laid back about such things.


It depends on what was done and to who and if any explanation is given. I would say that jobbing is an overused term for alot of people. Anytime their favorite character looks bad it is jobbing. Again it depends on the scenerio but it is a bit overused.

True jobbing by it's nature is not good. The other issue that causes some of these is that Marvel in particular has started a large trend of favoritism in their books with a few characters. So this makes fans on the recieving in a bit more sensitive.
