    Wondering who people want to see return the most (Characters who haven't been in season eight already).

    I was going to make it multiple votes but everyone's going to vote for everyone, so you only get your absolute must see pick.

    I'm going to go old school and say Angel.
    But I also wouldn't mind an appearance by Spike, Riley, and Oz... maybe Anya.

    Cordelia Chase. We have no clue what happened to her after she died, so she could still be a higher being, right? I'd love to see her give some guidance to the Scoobies. I thinking it'd be very interesting, seeing Buffy, Xander, and Giles reacting to Cordelia telling them what they have to do, since the last time any of them really saw her she was still "Queen C."

    Some other Angel characters, such as Wesley, would also be very neat. Joss has said he can use the ANGEL character since they're from the the Buffyverse.

      Oz for me.

      Xander is crying out for a man (sorry guy) and i think Oz would make a good addition to the team, especially as with Giles gone walkabout Xander is pretty much all on his lonesome with only a castle full of young, nubile girls to keep him company (and as i'm typning i'm suddenly feeling a lot less sorry for him).

      But another male character would even things up a bit and if the writers can bring back some of the season 3 relationship between Xander and Oz out then i think it would be a strong move.

        Spike, but I wouldn't want him to stay; I just want that long-anticipated reunion. The one I want for keeps is Oz, and maybe Riley, if they find some interesting use for him.

          I voted for Oz,

          Why? Because he isn't dead. Besides, he wouldn't give us the stupid Spuffy vs Bangel drama. Actually, he can be there without any ship-angst.

          And I don't like how Angel is written when he is around Buffy. In Chosen it was like Angel spend 4 years in day care and start acting like the little kids who were there. Let's not start about TGiQ, because there he regressed to a big baby.
          But of course as a Bangel shipper I would love to see those two interact after the
          Spoiler:
          Angel is not a vampire anymore.
          reveal.
          But I'm not that naïve. :P

          Spike is difficult, I would give a lot to get him out of Angel's story because his interactions with Angel are getting boring ... we get it, you don't like each other ... stop bickering! But Spike doesn't really fit in BtVS ... and it wouldn't be good for his redemption storyline. And I don't think that he would be there without Angel, or that he would leave to go back to LA. So ... no Spike either.

          Oh, Riley can be a guest. He isn't dead and he is okay I guess. But I really don't like Sam ... who would be there as well.

            I voted for Spike, maybe for a four-issue arc. I want Buffy to know he's alive, and what will she do to Andrew when she knows he knew and didn't tell her

            We already know that Oz and Riley will show uo, so I didn't need to vote for them.

            I don't want Anya, Tara, Joyce, and Cordelia to show up at all. They're dead. Dead characters should stay dead.

              I don't think there's any chance that we get a Spike guest spot without Angel, or vice versa, unless one of them is Twilight.

              I'd love a guest spot if the upshot of it was to finish off the 'shippy stages of her relationships with those guys.

                Let the dead characters stay dead. I'd really like for any AtS character that is not Angel, Harmony, or Spike to appear on Buffy. One of the things that bugged me about the show was that you had Oz, Willow, Anne, Spike, Cordelia, Harmony, Faith, Wesley, and Angel all coming over from Buffy to appear on AtS, but you never had one cast member of AtS going to Buffy for an appearance, outside of Angel, but since he originally came from Buffy he doesn't count. Give me Connor in an issue, or Wolfram & Hart, or Eve, or Lorne, or anyone that is an original character from AtS. Prove how much that show really mattered by having one of their characters appear in a Buffy issue.

                  They are finished, finished and finished again.

                  I entirely agree with Cell. It's time to see Lorne, Conner, Gunn or Illyria in the show. Personally I would favor Gunn or Illyria.

                      I would love to see some Ats characters in the BtVS comics, but I doubt that it would happen. There are a lot of BtVS watchers/readers who don't watch/read Ats. It would be difficult to have guests some people never heard of. Because an introduction would be annoying for the Ats fans.

                      I doubt that Connor, Illyria, Gunn or Lorne would show up. If the writers can give them a great story, I'm all in because I love the Ats characters. But I've my doubts.

                        I think Connor could show up- he's Angel's son, so because of that he's important to Buffy. But Gunn or Lorne would have to show up with Angel, if they show up at all, since it would be otherwise completely pointless to have them there at all- how could they further Buffy's story? The writers would have quite a job to do to convince us that either of their help was desperately needed- and what could Gunn or Lorne do that the Scoobs couldn't? If they did show up, it'd be completely for character purposes, not plot.

                        Illyria is the least likely, I think, since Willow's the only one who's ever even met Fred, and so they're not really gonna care about that whole situation. Plus, briefly introducing a (somewhat) good guy who's much stronger than the heroine doesn't really serve much purpose, except to make Buffy look weaker. Although maybe she could come in briefly to help get them out of a jam, then leave.
                        The story's kinda bland. It's about this guy named Dumbledore Calrissian who needs to return the ring back to Mordor.

                            As if.

                            Out of curiosity, who did you vote for?

                              I haven't voted. Not really sure what I think. I think Connor or Illyria or Gwen or Nina could be interesting, but, in Connor's case, I think it would be far cooler if he came and went without anyone knowing who he was. Presumably nobody would anyway -- Orlon's Window only affected Wes, Illyria, and Connor.

                                You know, I think a Buffy-Connor meeting would be really interesting, but I'd rather Buffy (plus or minus some Scoobies) cross over to Angel for that purpose, than Connor cross over to Buffy.

                                  Riley, just to show he's not Twilight. Maybe give him a minor spot in a dream or something. Any role that shows him as a neutral character or helping Buffy would be great; maybe a single panel with him in the jungle, giving Andrew (or someone) information - just as long as he's not dead or evil.
                                  Buffy: It sounds like it's difficult for you. Maybe your sister makes it hard for you to establish your own identity. You said she's controlling, she doesn't let you make your own decisions -
                                  Dawn: Yeah, and she borrows my clothes without asking.

                                    I was going to vote for Angel because I wanted to see the follow up to 'Damage' and Buffy's reaction should...
                                    Spoiler:
                                    Angel remain human after, 'After the Fall.'


                                    However, then I started thinking about all the little snarks you'd get from the Spuffy fandom, and the annoying joy of the Bangel fandom.. so I decided against it.

                                    So I voted for Oz. I'd love to see most of those characters make an appearance but I want some Willow/Oz interaction, really, because I'm interested to see how Oz reacts to what Willow has become and vice versa. Also I think Oz could be a permanent addition and a nice guy friend for Xander.

                                      Pfft vampmogs I don't care what spuffys, bangels or cangels whoever say. I just enjoy seeing Angel in Buffy for a little while, he adds something to her world, much like Spike does.

                                      Plus as you said I really want some closure.. or some sort of conversion between the characters after all that has happened.

                                      Few people voted for Cordelia which is interesting. I wonder what role she would take if she showed up for a time.. I'm not sure I see her fitting in.

                                        I voted Oz.

                                        Angel has his own series, and I don't believe it would be fair to have Angel appear in Buffy's comic until his series is over. It would feel like they're treating Angel's series as inferior, which it totally isn't. He doesn't need to appear in Buffy's comic, he's got a ton of awesome story to deal with in his own title. Same goes for Spike.

                                        Anya, Tara, Joyce and Cordy are all dead and should stay that way. Serioulsy, we've had way too many dead characters coming back. Enough is enough.

                                        It would be cool to see Riley, but if we get him, we'll probably also get the worst character ever written in either series: Sam Finn. Give me Kennedy or Conner a hundred times over that annoying Mary Sue wife of Riley's.

                                        I agree that it would be nice to see a character that originated on Angel cross over to Buffy, I mean, we got plenty of characters from Buffy crossing over to Angel. But, from a storytelling point of view, there's really no reason at the moment. A crossover would feel forced and contrived. "Hey there, my name's Lorne, I just happened to be in Scotland so I wanted to drop by and say hi. Angel used to talk about you all the time."

                                        For me, Oz is the only one that makes sense, and he's a really cool character that could have been utilzed more when he was on the show. It would be interesting to find out what he's been up to all these years. I'm guessing he has total control over his werewolf powers now.
