Who doesn’t love the Avengers? It’s filled with action, drama, love and humour, the perfect combination for any comic book or movie. And as you might have noticed, the Avengers fever has caught up with us, and we were thinking what if they were SMU-DE students?


Last week we analysed the traits of the Incredible Hulk and the righteous Captain America. This week we are wondering what kind of students would Hawkeye and Iron Man be? Iron Man is an innovator and researcher par excellence and Hawkeye is an exceptionally dedicated marksman. Apart from saving the world in times of trouble, these heroes, both as individuals and as a team, display the right attributes that distance learning students have or need. Want to know how? Well, there’s just one way to find out.

Iron Man – The well-prepared SMU-DEian


We think, the one quality that would make Iron Man the perfect dedicated, hardworking SMU-DE student, is his amazing ability to research. From designing his Extremis Armor to developing J.A.R.V.I.S, Tony Stark has spent hours if not days just on researching what would make his creations strong in every sense.

Iron Man’s research considers elements that can go wrong and ways to prevent it, which was evident when J.A.R.V.I.S used the “Clean Slate Protocol” to protect the armor.


As an SMU-DE student yourself, you know that Iron Man is the one who is not just prepared but is over prepared. Be it an MBA project or an MSC IT exam, Tony will be the class topper. His answers and assignments would always be supplemented with relevant proof based on his extensive research.


Do you know anyone who’s a student who goes that extra mile when it comes to research, and hence is the darling of teachers? Are you one such student? As a distance learning student, you need to dive deep into each subject to truly understand it and be able to tackle it with ease. In short, you need to research well and be well-prepared.


Key tip to become like Iron Man: Research various topics by looking up other course books and add the facts to your answers and projects.


Hawkeye – The dedicated learner


The often-underrated Hawkeye is a Marvel Universe character, who has honed his skills to compete with the rest of the Avengers. Clint Barton had natural archery skills, but he never stopped practicing. He is proof of the saying – practice makes perfect.

Hawkeye trained under Swordsman and Trickshot and used his learnings to turn his life around and fight against evil. His dedication to his craft and desire to make a positive impact help him emerge as a force to be reckoned with.


Hawkeye would make a great SMU-DEian because of his dedication. Staying on track with a correspondence course is tough due to distractions like full-time jobs and family commitments. The only thing that can keep you going is your dedication. Hawkeye would make time, stay focused and ensure that his performance does not falter no matter the distractions.


If all students were this dedicated to their distance MBA course or any other course, the results would be fantastic!


Feeling inspired? There is so much you can learn from these amazing superheroes irrespective of whether you’re pursuing a distance learning course in Mumbai or a correspondence course in Bangalore. So why not try to imbibe the qualities of your favourite superheroes and emerge triumphant Avengers style?
