Throughout the week, we'll be presenting the Heroes of the Year, our list of individuals who made a major impact on the comic book movie community in 2012.
Our final hero of the year is the director behind the most successful comic book adaptation of all time: Joss Whedon. Honoring him is one of Whedon's frequent collaborators, Jane Espenson, co-creator of the web series "Husbands," among other projects.
Being asked about the impact Joss Whedon has had on comic book movies is like being asked about the impact the moon landing had on moon exploration. What Joss did with comic book movies in "The Avengers" is the same thing he did with teen horror in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and space opera in "Firefly."
Joss can take an alien, a god, a hero, a robot, or a fictional teenaged girl, and know what this being, in this situation, would say and do if they were real. »
