Whedon is notable for his signature dialogue, which features dry self-referential humor and heavy emphasis on subtext. His work is permeated with themes of feminism, anti-authoritarianism, existentialism, and sacrifice/self-sacrifice. He often uses misogyny to define the trait of a villain, and his protagonists tend to be loner heroes who start out Power (social and political)/powerless but then regain control from community in order to fulfill a purpose.

His work in comic books includes Fray, Astonishing X-Men, Serenity comics/Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics/Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel: After the Fall and Runaways (comics)/Runaways. He is also known for his collaborations in online media. Many of Whedon's projects have cult status.

From a family of screenwriters, he is the grandson of John Whedon, the son of Tom Whedon, and the half brother of Zack Whedon/Zack and Jed Whedon. In May 2013, Whedon was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters from Wesleyan University.
