EDITOR'S OPINIONHAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE! Today at the Captain America VC section we take a look at Cap's sidekick... BUCKY! Let us begin...
Carl Banas- Carl's overall work on the role is decent, even if his voice does make him sound a little too old to be a teenager (especially since this show came in decades before Marvel did a Adult WW2 version of Bucky). But to be fair, Carl's performance does suit Bucky pretty well as a heroic young man willing to aid Cap as much as possible, and is a decent example of the voice work in the show.
James Arnold Taylor- While Bucky may have been for the most part a brief cameo in the movie JAT's voice felt very natural for the role. JAT's performance suited on how while Ol' Jim Barnes may seem easy going but can take a situation seriously and highly believes in Captain America. So basically its a good example of JAT's handiwork and a pretty good example of the voice work in the movie.
Scott Menville- Scott was very much a natural choice as Bucky as his known youthful voice suited Bucky VERY well. I also liked on how Scott played Bucky who is creeped out by his rather strange opponents but not cowardly and also has a bit of a sarcastic sense of humor. Its a fine example of Scott's work and a good example of the voice work in the show.
Rod Keller- Rod's work on the role is not bad even if his voice does sound a bit forced. Though Rod's performance is pretty good as it does suit Bucky's "plucky young sidekick" persona pretty well. So basically I have heard a lot better performances in the show but I have heard worse.
Sebastian Shaw- Sebastian does make a pretty good "Adult Bucky" as it is understandable why he gives a bit more of a somber performance here. But still Sebastian does a pretty good job in playing Bucky as a more serious minded soldier as while his performance in the movie was a bit better than it is in the game but its still pretty good nevertheless.
Overall I am going with Scott Menville with James and Sebastian at a close second with Carl and Rod at a decent third.
