This guy does great as The Thing, Aeleus, Venom, Mixmaster, Thor, and Joseph Capelli. He's a great voice actor, I hope to see him in more titles soon.

It doesn't matter too much since they're more-or-less the same person.

I'm really digging his Thing voice. I wasn't a fan of it at first, but now that I've listened to his not-SHSS voices, I gotta' say I like it.

I find it interesting that while his USM and AA Thing voice had some effects on them, his SMASH voice was much more natural. Both sound good, mind you, I just thought it was odd that two did and one didn't.

@TylerMirage I thought something was odd when I played all three clips in a row. I much prefer the voices without the effects. I hope that Marvel keeps them off if they continue to use David for Thing.

@Nightmare Crusher I dunno'. Personally, there's just something I really like about the effects. I mean, the guy's a walking boulder. The effects add that extra layer of "what would it sound like if this guy's vocal chords were rocks?" to it. He wouldn't just sound like a tough guy - he'd sound like a tough guy GARGLING ROCKS AND SHEET METAL.

Like I said, I think both voices (natural vs. altered) are good, and the SMASH voice lets us here HIM a bit more, but I've got a soft spot (har) for the USM/AA voice.

@Xymor There's really not a lot of characters who have unnecessary effects added to them in the current Marvel Animation line-up. Blastaar in SMASH, the robotic echo on Ultron and Doom's voice, Nightmare and The Thing in USM... That's like, a handful of literally 200+ characters. And of those handful, only Nightmare is really over-the-top. I just wish that they were consistent with the effects on The Thing's voice across all three shows.

Also, with regards to "its always better to hear an real performance rather than one that was artificially tampered with", that's completely subjective. You imply that having effects added to a performance somehow nullifies the "reality" of the performance. It doesn't automatically do that. You can have a great performance that is enhanced with effects (Frank Welker as Soundwave) and you can have a great performance that is hindered by effects (Steve Blum as Darkseid). Soundwave wouldn't be Soundwave without the vocoder-effect on his voice. You can barely hear Frank's Dr. Claw voice through it, but that's what makes it Soundwave. Dr. Claw voice + vocoder gives an amazing result where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

It's a case-by-case basis, so you can't really make a blanket statement about a 100% "natural" voice being automatically better than anything that's been fiddled with in post. That's just flat-out incorrect.

I think he's ok as I don't like a lot of his roles but he was good as the Thing.

@TheVengeanceKnight I still get a good chuckle out of reading Fennoy's random comment, ha ha.

Plus the irony of saying "no comment" after you literally do just that.
