Buffy the Vampire Slayer fell to Don Draper in Vulture's Drama Derby, but how might Buffy fare against another Joss Whedon heroine, Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff from The Avengers? PopCandy asked Whedon to imagine the Buffy versus Black Widow matchup, and he came up with a thorough answer. "Buffy would go easy at first, but as soon as Natasha popped her with a Widow Sting, she'd start bringing some slayer brawn to the fray," he hypothesized. "Natasha's fast, but a couple of good connects and she's wobbling, possibly something broken — she whips out her glock and now Buffy's dodging — right where Natasha wants her." It goes on like this for a while — steel barrels are involved! — until things come to a conclusion: "Natasha, struggling to stay conscious, says the fight's over. Buffy agrees, but Natasha explains: She poisoned Buffy hours ago. That waitress that brought her salad … ? Natasha smiles. The poison is dormant — till it's activated by adrenaline. Buffy's eyes narrow. 'Too bad I didn't use any.' Wham! Natasha's out for the count, and Buffy's heading — slowly — to Willow for a mystical cleanse." And now you know!
