Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, erupted in 2008 with the release of “Iron Man,” audiences have become accustomed to the massive scale that the MCU employs with each of its movies. Moreover, audiences have grown attached and familiar with characters such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk. Each of these characters bring something unique to the MCU, but there isn’t a great deal of diversity with their corresponding films considering each of these characters are white males that receive most of the screen time. Although there is some diversity with characters such as Black Widow, Scarlet Witch and the Falcon, they are primarily used as secondary characters. Until now.

People not in happy relationships, however, were left out of the picture entirely.

After 34 years teaching at the University of Richmond, Professor Mike Spear is retiring. The oldest professor at UR, he gave us our first Fs ever in his Copy Editing course — a prerequisite for being a Collegian editor — and he is without a doubt The Collegian’s biggest supporter and critic. What follows is an appreciation for the man who is, in our opinion, one of the greatest professors this university will ever know.
Any person who respects the autonomy of Jewish statehood in Israel and believes in the validity of the 1967 unification of Jerusalem should be sincerely apprehensive of President Donald Trump’s decision today to officially recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.
Thanksgiving is upon us. The leaves are starting to bronze and fall with the autumn winds. Exams are piling up and essay deadlines are looming in the background. But at the end of this tunnel, is the smell of a beautiful home-cooked meal, the warm embrace of family and friends and the sound of music. (No pun intended.)

The most glaring threat to the nature of American democracy is not the man that sits behind the desk in the Oval Office – it’s the sport that holds a special place in that man’s heart: golf.
New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is wrapping up, and now it's crucial to take a step back and consider the fashion industry with a critical eye. Many of us, myself included, anticipate the new seasonal trends — even if we wouldn’t wear them on a daily basis. Fashion is art and the designers are artists. It’s fascinating to watch how their creations influence the average American.
Every year I dread 9/11. It’s a dark day that I hate to think about, much less speak about. It’s a national day of remembrance, but all I remember is the lost of a loved one — and the loss of my innocence.
