Top 5 Female Characters of the Whedonverse
Last week, I wrote about my Top Five Male Characters of the Whedonverse. There seemed to be discord among fans that I had omitted few favorites (sorry Wesley and Angel!), and this week I’d like to take you through my Top Five Female Characters of the Whedonverse. I’m sure that this will also lead to debates, but hey, that’s what this column is for!
River was one, like Willow, that I was unsure about adding to the list. But then I remembered Serenity, so I figured I’d better. First things first, I love River. Her random comments always make me laugh, and even when they seem to come totally out of left field, they somehow make complete sense.
Saved from an Alliance academy by her brother, Simon, River’s brain is. well, scrambled, for lack of a better word. Doctors and scientists did some pretty bad things to River, including removing part of her brain, and ultimately turning her into a living weapon. The last part becomes pretty handy for the Serenity crew.
While she’s a handful because she’s so unpredictable, River is a huge asset to the Firefly universe. Without her, well. the crew probably wouldn’t be around.
No click of a button this time; let the site know why you prefer River to Zoe, Buffy, Cordelia or Willow.
