For those of you who don't know what jobbing is, it refers to when a character isn't working to their best ability due to holding back their power or some other reason. This usually results in them losing (often in hilarious ways) to less powerful opponents. This thread is basically just a place to talk about different examples of jobbing and display some scenes of jobbing in comics. Here is the biggest scene of jobbing that I have ever witnessed:

And this may still technically be canon.

@mister_surreal: Thats not canon. It is from the comic adaptation of a children's comedy skit.

MCU Thanos on Titan was jobbing.

He could've ended the fight with one reality stone attack and I don't know what he was trying to do.

Some people say he was trying not to kill but he definitely tried to hit Strange with a boulder busting attack which would've killed any human.

Still like the fight scene tho

I couldn't recall any jobbing scene apart from Aaron's Thor :p (since i don't remember them mostly ) but recently i have heard from another thread that the Living Tribunal was being killed by 3 Beyonders on Avengers Times Runs Out , where LT was acting as jobber, which kinda of makes sense.

Tbh sometimes this jobbing scenes gave occasional funny moments like OP's jobbing scene LOL

What?! Wow

OT: SS vs T'Challa's arm lock, was absurd, but SS later said he left BP win on purpose.

Also, Catwoman one-shotting 3 flahses is beyond absurd

I also remember the time Batman defeated the entire Justice League, but the most fun part was when he incapacitated Wonder Woman with gum.

Darkseid falling by tripping on stairs happened in one arc from Superman/Batman run, where he was depowered. And that infamous Thanos scan where he got arrested happened in Spidey Super Stories #39. Which is a part of a run written for kids only and focuses on re-invented Spider-man stories to fit the narrative. In other words, it is not canon.

Neither one of those instances is relevant to a character being a jobber. One was depowered Darkseid and the other one wasn't canon. Although I guess you can say that version of Thanos is a jobber overall because he was defeated in stupid way, but it is still important to point out the fact that it is not canon.

As for the topic, current Thor, N52 Barry Allen and Sentinel of Starheart Alan Scott are great examples of jobbers.

Pretty much every appearance of Juggernaut in the last year. Supposedly amped to the point of being able to beat Cyttorak himself, to then be stomped by Iceman, stomped by Deadpool with a cement truck, stomped by [current] Thor, and as of last week stomped by Venom too.

The vast majority of Gorgons appearances after Enemy of The State. Getting one shotted by Daredevil, getting two shotted by Scarlet Samurai etc. Current Thor comes to mind as well, Wolverine under Garth Ennis, Batman under Tom King etc.

@supermanthor: nah,the flashes were under mind control,you can't job while in mind control.

On the other hand,90% of times cw flash loses is because he jobs hard.

@pipxeroth: Thanks, also what the hell that was painful to read... Is Venom overall a good read? Cause going from Donny's Thanos run and Cosmic Ghost Rider run and now to this, he doesn't seem capable of managing power levels at all. As good as a story can get, this much nonsense can make anyone frustrated.

@virtuozzo: I haven't really been following it, but yeah Cates is definitely up there as one of the worst writers currently as far as power levels are concerned, so I definitely would not recommend reading it if that bothers you lol.

Not only did that chronologically happen years ago, that's really not how it went down. All Eddie did was knock Cain around and BFR him into the sewers, where he got bored and came back up to eat a burrito.

@mister_surreal: darkseid falling from a stair

To be fair, there is a genuine reason why something like that happened. In case you haven't read it, Darkseid had just been freed from the Source Wall, but unknown to most was that he came back without the Omega Force, which left him critically low on power.

Also it's not the worst thats happened to great Darkseid while in a weakened state:
