Clutch interlocks are easily disabled though. My Jeep is designed to start in gear, you just have to pull the fuse marked 'off road'.

With my Prelude, I once wondered what happened when I held down the accelerator instead of the clutch. Funny how it simultaneously started and started moving. Then my clutch went out and I needed to figure out how to get it to my mechanic.

I cannot do that with my Civic, though.
It takes a manual, at least I never tried to do this with an auto gearbox.
Press the clutch, select first gear, release the clutch, start.
Do not touch any pedal when starting, and certainly not the accelerator pedal. That would only choke the engine or make the car jump forward when it does fire after all.
In a life and death scenario you can also use second to make a quicker getaway, but it puts larger stresses on the components.
