Default Drake Bell as Spidey in retrospect

What did you think? I thought he was good but nowhere near as great as Josh Keaton.

He did alright I guess, but I don't really like his voice. ...and I'm not sure I dig this show either.

I thought his jokes were ok and his emotion such as his grieving for Uncle Ben was good too.

I agree with the rest of you. He's fine but he's definatley not as good as Josh Keaton.

Personally, I'd say it's at least quite interesting how Marvel is using celebrity voice-over talent for USM rather than a tried-and-true California-based cast. I'm guessing they just want to be a part of the public media rather than just another lackey working for the animation industry.

Anyway, he's ok, but he obviously just doesn't hold a candle up to Christopher Daniel Barnes, Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Keaton or Quinton Flynn. No way.

Mr. Bell does alright, but when you know that Josh Keaton did audition for the role and didn't even make the cast, it feels like Marvel just went for Star Power over actual voice acting talent and experience. I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT when star power is prefered over actual experience and talent.

I think they wanted to use someone else as Drake wasn't hired at the time obviously. They wanted a new cast than Spectacular's which sucks but is understandable. I like Tom Kenny's Doc Ock even more than Peter Macniol's.

I did not now that. Still my mind hasn't really changed. Tom Kenny is a good Doc Ock and to me on par with Peter Macniol to me mostly because my Doc Ock voice is Chuck Huber.

That was a guess not a fact. I guessed Drake wasn't hired yet since the role was still open for an audition but not sure if Drake had auditioned yet at all.

I'll say he's improved as the episodes have progressed. The writing on the show is just terrible.
