[if he could pick one piece of his work to represent his entire body of work to future generations] Firefly: Objects in Space (2002). See more »

Trivia:

Was asked to revise the script for X-Men (2000) and reportedly decided the whole script needed to be totally rewritten. When he handed the studio this draft, they apparently threw it out; they only really wanted him to add a couple jokes here and there. See more »
