If Marvel Characters Were College Majors

In case you (somehow) haven’t heard, Marvel is releasing their biggest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this May: “Avengers: Infinity War.” After 18 films and 10 years, all—and I do mean “all”—your favorite superheroes are coming together to fight the ominous Thanos as he works to get all six Infinity Stones.

As a big Marvel fan, I’m extremely excited to finally see everyone together. And as a college student, I started wondering what each character would be if they were college majors. So I started brainstorming…and here are the results!

History — Captain America

Business — Nick Fury
