Humans of NGU: Seth Driskill, the ultimate Marvel fan

Sarah Wetherbie, Contributing Writer


Marvel enthusiasts exist on campus, but there is no one who loves Marvel more than Seth Driskill. Driskill, a sophomore social studies education major here at NGU, is one of the biggest Marvel enthusiasts any one will ever meet.

Driskill has seen the original “Avengers” movie over 200 times since its release 10 years ago. He knows this because he marks it down every time he watches it. He has also seen “Avengers: Infinity War” at least 50 times. Driskill has seen every Marvel TV show that exists. While he might not be able to tell what the plots of any of the episodes are, he has seen them. He has started to consider it a chore. “I’ve got to watch it because it’s my job to be a Marvel fan”, Driskill commented.

His favorite Marvel movie has changed over the years. It started with the original Avengers movie then moved on to “Captain America: Civil War” and is currently “Infinity War”. Driskill’s least favorite Marvel movie is “Ant Man and the Wasp”. It didn’t meet his expectations after having just seen “Infinity War”.  

His favorite Marvel comic character is Red Hulk, and his favorite Marvel movie/TV character is Ghost Rider. His favorite Spiderman actor, out of Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland, is Tom Holland. Holland’s Spiderman fits into the current Marvel movie universe, and Holland fits the part of a young Peter Parker and Spiderman.
