EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the DC Universe VC section we shall go for this known practitioner of occult magic.... FELIX FAUST! We shall start this off with the 6th season of Super Friends namely the mid 80's series "The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardian" voiced by Peter "Optimus Prime" Cullen. Yes you read that right Peter Cullen was the first VA to voice Felix Faust and while its probably not strange to hear Peter Cullen doing a deep voice but it might seem a little strange to hear Felix Faust with a somewhat deep voice (especially considering the latter clips shown here). But to be honest I actually don't mind the fact that Felix had a somewhat deep voice in the Superfriends series as I actually do think that Peter Cullen's performance does help make it work. Peter's voice for Felix doe have a rather sinister feel and fortunately his performance does reflect well on how "Oppurtunistic" Felix can be. So in other words its probably one of the better "One-Shot role" performances in that show and I do admire Peter on how he was able to get a somewhat deep Felix Faust voice to work well, at least to me that is.

Nearly a couple of decades later Robert "Freddie Kruger" Englund voiced Felix Faust in 2 episodes of Justice League (and a Justice League Unlimited episode) and he was a suitable choice for the role. Robert's voice had an elegant (with a light British accent) but quite manipulative feel which is genuinely suitable for Faust as Robert's performance certainly followed suit. Robert played the role of Felix as a well-spoken gentleman whom may sound affable but it is quite obvious on how he is anything but. While its not one of the best performances in a DCAU animation feature it is still a very good example of the voice work in the Justice League shows nevertheless.

Dee Bradley Baker voiced Felix Faust for a couple of episodes in Batman The Brave and the Bold. While one could tell the difference between Robert's Felix Faust voice and his, Dee's Felix Faust voice and performance seem to be in spirit with Robert Englund's and if that was the case then I must say that Dee was pretty successful here. While Dee's Felix Faust voice does sound a bit younger than the others it still does work pretty well for the role here nevertheless. I did like on how Dee played the role of Felix Faust as quite the conniving little trickster here in which he pulls it off pretty well. I admit I wouldn't go so far as to consider this performance to be one of Dee's best in general but its certainly one of his better ones in this show.

Last but not the least is Brian Jepson in the DC Universe Online game and I was pleasantly surprised with how this performance turned out. Unlike the previous two VA's mentioned here whom played Felix as a scheming manipulator Brian played the role of Felix as a deluded madman whom is out for power in which Brian's performance is good proof on how that is a perfectly legit way of playing the role of Felix here. Brian's performance had a great sense of passion for the role that didn't sound too overdone and had a suitably sinister tone, basically a great example of the game's voice work. Overall I am not sure who to pick here as all of these guys did well in their own ways.

Robert Englund sounds delightfully creepy as Felix Faust. Brian Jepson is rather good and creepy, too. Dee Bradley Baker is pretty creepy and a little campy. The campiness works given the tone of that series. Peter Cullen gives a good performance, but I think that voice is too deep. If he lowered it some, I think it'd be more fitting. The laugh at the end was cool, though.

Peter Cullen doesn't exactly seem the most fitting for the character, but that is a really cool voice on its own and I give him credit for coming up with a good villainous voice, besides it's not every day he's cast as a villain and he pulls it off quite nicely. Hopefully he'll be able to do more someday.

I really love Robert Englund as an actor in general and he does seem fitting, he gives Felix Faust a wise, cunning and manipulative personality. My only problem with his performance is he talks a little bit too fast at times and it causes some of the lines he said to lose the menacing impact that they should have, I also feel his voice could be a tiny bit deeper. If he worked on his pacing and deepened his voice even a bit, I think he'd be perfect. Still it's not a bad performance as is, it does work for the character, but I feel it could be a bit more effective with a few tweaks here and there.

Admittedly when I first heard his voice in the comparison, I was confused about the sexy music in the background of Dee Bradley Baker's clip, I thought it was trying to make Felix Faust seem all seductive or something. But after watching the episode myself and seeing that he was talking to Batwoman, I just feel silly now. But anyways as for the voice itself, it's okay. It's nothing bad and it does work, but it's nothing all that memorable either. That's all I can really say about it, not the best performance I've heard from Dee, but it's not bad either by any means. It gets the job done and is pretty standard.

I have to say right now that I freaking LOVE Brian Jepson's voice for the character, he sounds powerful and intimidating, not to mention you can totally tell he's having a lot of fun in the role. Savoring every line he has and delivering it in such a menacing way and having a blast while doing so. I feel that this is one of, if not THE best performance from that game as when I hear him, I don't simply hear Brian Jepson, I hear Felix Faust. He's fantastic in the role.

As much as I'd love to vote for Robert Englund, the power Brian Jepson has in his voice just brings much more of an impression on me, so Brian gets my vote, with Robert Englund as a close second, Peter Cullen in third for being a unique yet somewhat ill fitting choice for the role, and Dee Bradley Baker in fourth, he wasn't bad by any means as I do like him, he was just pretty standard and wasn't all that memorable.

Peter is a bit too deep for my taste. While I love peter to death, here I just felt the voice really didn't fit the face for this role, and it seems more like it would fit another character better. It's not bad it just seems kind of odd for that voice to come out of that character (though I will admit that evil laugh is awesome.) 6/10

Robert is one of my favorite actors ever, and he has definitely proven that he can be a great voice actor as well, and here is no exception. He plays off the cowardly, backstabbing side of Faust very well, but can sound very creepy and evil as well. It's one of Roberts best, if not his best voice acting role. 8/10

Dee was a very natural choice here I feel. His high voice fits the character very well, and he does come off as creepy but a little more campy since its BBatB, but it is a welcome portrayal of the character. 7.5/10

Brian is much raspier and mystical in his voice but it still works incredibly well here. Not too high not too low, just right in the middle. 7.5/10

1. Robert
2. Brian
3. Dee
4. Peter

I gotta give it to Brian and not because he posted in this come ;)
I felt he brought more to the character then just "an evil wizard" with how he brought a power hungry side to him.
Peter Cullen is my second because
1. He's Peter Cullen
2. THe deeper voice is so unexpected and surprisenly good that I had to give him points.

I haven't heard the other guys' performances as Felix, but I had a lot of fun recording it! I feel honored to have worked on a character that none other than Freddy Krueger himself voiced. Doing crazy villain voices is a heck of a lot of fun. Of course, I also loved doing Joe the Condor on Gatchaman and that's pretty much my normal voice, only slightly more pissed off!
