Joss Whedon's Favorite Character

Joss Whedon Revealed His Favorite Character, and Now We're Crying

With iconic projects like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and the Avengers films under his belt, it's safe to say that Joss Whedon is a creative mastermind. He's inspired fans for nearly 20 years, writing countless characters who are tough (yet vulnerable), quirky, and relatable . . . so when a fan at his San Diego Comic-Con panel asked who Whedon's favorite character creation is, he was understandably a bit stumped.

"It would change daily," the director said but quickly changed his tune. "I kinda feel . . . how can I not say Buffy? She is the very distilled essence of everything I'm not and want desperately to be or be around." Then Whedon took it to a whole new level of feels by adding that Buffy is "sort of the nexus, the beating heart, of everything that I have done — or will." Cue the tears!
