Franchise: Batman

Mayor Hamilton Hill is one of the various supporting characters in the Batman franchise whom made his Comic Book Debut in Detective Comics #510 in 1985. Hamilton Hill is the Mayor of Gotham City whom was originally depicted as a villain namely a highly corrupt politician whom has worked with the likes of Rupert Thorne. However over the years while Hamilton Hill is still Gothan City's Mayor he has had more favorable depictions as someone whom might be a good guy to a definite good guy. While Hamilton's behavior does depend on the writer he has went from working with one of Batman's foes to be an occasional victim of them.

Today on the Batman VC section we take a look at the Mayor of Gotham City himself... HAMILTON HILL! We will begin with the Batman Animated series in which Hamilton was voiced by the late Lloyd Bochner. Lloyd's voice for the role did have a suitably stuffy feel for the role and yet his performance did suit on how while Hamilton has a shameless love of PR but he is by no means a truly bad man though. While Hamilton did appear in plenty of episodes in the series he only occasionally had a significant role in them but still Lloyd Bochner's work for the role was rather fitting and a good example of the voice work in the show.

In "The Batman" Hamilton gets a flat-out good depiction and was in one episode and was voiced by Lex Lang. Lex's voice for the role is decent I suppose but it feels like Lex is just using his regular speaking voice which is not bad per say but its not particularly memorable either. However Lex's performance for the role is good though as he tries to make a big speech while sounding so noble and strong and Lex pulls it off pretty well. So in other words Lex's performance for the role of Hamilton is pretty good as it does get the job done well enough even if it is a little generic.

In Young Justice, Hamilton appeared in a cameo for one episode voiced by Corey Burton. In Young Justice Hamilton is depicted as a considerably manlier individual and Corey's work on the role does suit with what the show was going with fairly well. Corey's voice for the role had a rough older feel which was very suitable as his performance does show a good sense of arrogance as well. While Hamilton only had about a couple of lines in the show but Corey's work was still fairly memorable nevertheless. Overall I liked them all but I am going with Lloyd Bochner the most with Corey Burton at a close second and Lex Lang at a decent third.

Robert Pescovitz was definitely the best one. He gave a sleazy, dirt bag performance. PERFECT FOR A POLITICIAN!

@Stare at the Sun "You forget who you're talking to! I'm the man that says, "I never left such and such a message,' and all the judges bow their heads and say 'yessir!' I'm the man who sends the police to your house to take your things, and I give them to whoever I please! You're nothing like your father - you'd never have the backbone to do what we did! I'm the heavyweight, Wayne. And you're punching above your weight. Get out of the ring before you get hurt."

VC thoughts update

Lloyd Bochner was just perfect as Mayor Hamilton. He sounds perfectly stuffy yet he can also be quite kind at the right times.

Corey Burton does sound pretty good. I wouldn't mind a reprisal.

Lex Lang works well as a younger Hamilton. He is not quite stuffy, but he does have a lot of kindness.

Robert Pescovitz works pretty well in the role too. He plays him more as a corrupt Mayor, but it's a nice fresh take on the character.

I like Lloyd best for the kind Hamilton and Robert best for the corrupt one.

Robert Pescovitz suited the corrupt politician from the comics well.

I'll go with Lloyd since he sounds more like a mayor. A mayor should sound quite toughish & poshish and Lloyd fits fita both those descriptions perfectly.

Corey is 2nd as he only got to voice Hamilton in a cameo. Hopefully DC will get him back in the future so we can hear more since he sounded pretty good.

Lex just sounds like an announcer rather than a mayor.

They're all good, but I'm going with Lloyd Bochner. He had a great voice and it was also a great performance. I believe that is all Corey Burton got as the character, though I could be wrong. I don't know how much of a role Lex Lang had

It's hard to compare, because while all of them share the same name and role they were all portrayed as different characters. I guess it's all just a matter of preference for which character.

Lloyd Bochner was just pitch perfect. Corey Burton comes second. Didn't care for Lex Lang, but mainly 'cause he replaced Adam West's Mayor Grange as the mayor of Gotham, which sucked!
