Buffy Summers and Jack Harkness: A Comparison

A comparison of Buffy Summers, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Jack Harkness, from Torchwood (and also Doctor Who, but mostly Torchwood). Buffy comes across a bit better in this comparison. Not that I'm biased or anything. Okay, maybe I'm a little bit biased. I love Jack Harkness, but it is a love/hate kind of thing. He is my hero who fell off the pedestal. Buffy I love and adore and get overly defensive of. And because I fell in love with her when she was at her worst, she never fell off the pedestal.

(This is not to discourage anyone from reading or commenting if they disagree, just to give people a sense of where I'm coming from and what to expect.)

Speaking of pedestals...
