If you're a Marvel fan, it's not unlikely that you're also a Joss Whedon fan, and vice-versa. After all, Joss Whedon was influenced by Marvel comics, they have storytelling styles in common, and they even overlap (The Avengers and Marvel's Agents of Shield onscreen, plus Astonishing X-Men and Runaways in comics). If you're a fan of one but not familiar with the other, why not check the other out? (Not to be confused with the Avengers character The Other, played by Whedonverse veteran Alexis Denisof.)

In any case, this comparison of the recent Marvel films Iron Man 3, Thor 2, and Captain America 2 (and the TV show Marvel's Agents of Shield) with Joss Whedon's first show Buffy the Vampire Slayer will try to avoid any major spoilers (though there's one for Captain America 2, which will be clearly marked), so feel free to keep reading.
