Which Joss Whedon Characters Resemble Members of The Avengers?
The more I mull it over, the more Joss Whedon makes sense as the director of Marvel's high-profile feature film adaptation of The Avengers. His time in the director's chair isn't extensive, but neither was Jon Favreau's before helming Iron Man, and Whedon's got plenty more geek cred and comic book experience than Favreau ever did. In fact, once you start to really examine Whedon's television work, you might see that his characters aren't so dissimilar from the superheroes who will be populating The Avengers. Let's take a look at who resembles who:
Iron Man :: Mal, Firefly
An ability to mumble pithy comments under his breath? Check. A heart of gold that sometimes gets in the way of his money-making schemes? Check. A gift for looking great in red and a love of traveling through the air? Check and check.
The Hulk :: Willow, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
You wouldn't like either of these two when they're angry. Unfortunately, their tendency to transform at the slightest provocation makes their fellow heroes wary.
Captain America :: Captain Hammer, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
Have you ever suspected that under Captain America's goody-goody exterior lies a shamelessly self-congratulatory inner life (and a love of showtunes)?
